In a small bowl, whisk together yogurt, milk, egg, vanilla and melted butter. Slowly mix wet ingredients into dry – just until fully combined (do not overmix).

Oven Baked Smores made in less then 3 minutes Easy Family Recipe

Watch our recorded Live video of us making them below

Oven S'mores, EASY camping recipe made right in your kitchen. Fast and easy and SO GOOD, perfect for a big group and less mess, Popular dessert ideas for summerOven S’Mores made in less than 3 minutes

We had a big family reunion last week,  my sister was going to let the kids make s’mores for dessert, but it was too hot to start a fire. PLUS we did not really want the kids all smelling like smoke, so we made Oven S’Mores instead. I have to tell you, these are the BEST WAY to make s’mores. You can make a whole pan of them in less than 3 minutes. Plus you don’t have kids running around with sharp pointed objects, blazing hot, often with a burning marshmallow on the end.  But the very best part is the chocolate melts perfect and the marshmallow is toasted to perfection.

To make them all you need is:

Large baking sheet

Graham Crackers

Marshmallows

Hershey’s  Chocolate

Or you could just grab a S’mores Kit 

Break the graham crackers in half. On a large baking sheet spread out the graham crackers. Place 1-2 squares of chocolate on each cracker. Place a large marshmallow on top of the chocolate.  Put the pan in a preheated oven set to broil. I keep the door open so I can watch them close. I also put the oven rack down LOW so the pan is farther away from the heating element.  This allows the marshmallow to toast with less chance of burning. BUT they brown fast so watch them close, all it takes is 2-3 minutes with the oven on broil.

The chocolate will be perfectly melted, and might even be a little hot, so let them cool a few minutes before you serve them  to smaller children. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as our family does!
