Summer in one word. S’mores. You say it and it takes you back to your younger years sitting around a campfire and roasting your marshmallows to perfection. The only thing I don’t love? The mess. Fun until the mama has to clean up all the sticky fingers.

Maybe you don’t have the campfire, but you can still have the s’mores albeit without the mess. Throw out the s’mores sticks and bring out the mason jars, a personal favorite, and you have yourself a little slice of heaven. But for the sake of pleasing others, lets call it S’mores in a Jar. Um, can you say yum?

adapted from the campfire favorite and a cake recipe of paula deen.

  1. I absolutely love this idea. And these printables are so cute!
    Melanie @ Carmel Moments recently posted…Bacon and Ham Grilled Cheese with Brown Sugar Mustard

  2. What size jars should we use?

  3. THANK YOU for posting my tasty summer treat and a chance to guest post. So fun! Thank you…

    these are so cute! I ma going to bew making them for my son’s 2nd birthday. I don’t see where the printable for these are at though, am I just missing it somehow? Thank you!

  5. Wanting to make these about a week in advance….what do you think? Will that work and I’ll probably want to keep them refrigerated too right?

  6. What a great idea! They look so cute in the jars, too!

  7. So 6 squares of bittersweet chocolate and 2 squares of semi-sweet are both equal to an ounce? If that’s the case, and it’s equal parts bitter and semi, I would take out the “squares” measurement altogether as that makes it a little confusing. These definitely look yummy though! I’m such a sucker for anything s’mores!

  8. Can this recipe for Smores in a Jar be adapted to a make ahead kind of treat? Thanks

  9. What a cool idea! It might not be as easy as campfire s’mores but looks totally worth the effort!
    Anele @ Success Along the Weigh recently posted…Oh yeah…that.
