Hanukkah S'mores

  • recipe photo
  • S'mores are such an easy dessert to make, and kids of all ages are drawn to them. In this version, I actually soften the chocolate bars a bit in the microwave first so they melt well when the toasty marshmallows are added.

Icing is used to decorate these s'mores with traditional Hanukkah symbols. Children can decorate the graham crackers and allow them to dry before assembling their s'mores.

Ingredients - S'mores

  • 12 whole graham crackers
  • White icing (recipe below)
  • 24 large marshmallows
  • 6 chocolate bars, slightly softened in the microwave


  • Decorate 6 whole graham crackers with symbols or words of your choosing with the icing by using toothpicks or a piping bag fitted with a small tip. Allow the icing to harden a bit.

  • Prepare a fire or cooktop for roasting the marshmallows. Meanwhile, soften the chocolate bars slightly in the microwave, about 15-20 seconds. For a more spreadable chocolate, melt the bars at 30-second intervals, stirring until the chocolate is smooth.

  • Spear the marshmallows on metal skewers, and gently toast them over your cooktop. (This is a great job for grown-ups, or should at least be closely supervised by an adult.) Place the chocolate on the 6 crackers that were left undecorated, top with two marshmallows each, followed by the decorated graham crackers.

Ingredients - White Icing

  • 2 cups confectioner's sugar
  • 2 Tb. corn syrup
  • 2-4 Tb. water
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice


  • Combine the sugar, corn syrup, 2 Tb. water and lemon juice in a bowl. Whisk to combine, thinning with the additional 2 tablespoons of water if needed.
