72 Easy Summer Desserts to Devour from Now Until Labor Day

1. Broiler S'mores

No campfire, no problem. Simply layer all the traditional ingredients in a cast-iron skillet and let the broiler do the rest.

2. Oven-baked S’mores Bars

Like broiler s'mores, these beauties come together in the oven. The main difference is the press-in, four-ingredient graham cracker crust.

3. Ultimate Pb&j S’mores

Peanut butter is always invited to dessert, as are dark chocolate-coated graham crackers and sweet blueberry jelly. Pass the napkins, please.

4. 5-minute S’mores Mug Cake For One

For when your heart cries out for chocolate, but your brain says it's bedtime. It only needs two minutes in the microwave to bake (and even less to be devoured).

5. Dark Chocolate Hummus S’mores

Yes, dessert hummus is a thing, and it's downright glorious. Finish these s'mores off with crushed almonds or toasted macadamia nuts.

6. Bourbon Marshmallow S'mores With Bacon

Oh yeah, they're definitely worth the mess. Bring on the sweet-and-salty bliss.

7. S'mores Fudge Pops

An icy treat for the hottest of days. This creamy snack starts with store-bought chocolate pudding mix and Marshmallow Fluff, so it's bound to taste divine.

8. S'mores Doughnut Sandwich

If you’re gonna go for it, really go for it. We're talking mini graham cracker doughnuts stuffed with dark chocolate and homemade beer marshmallows.

9. Thin Mint S'mores

Someone befriend a Girl Scout, stat. We *need* these cookie-stuffed delights in our mouth like, yesterday.

10. S'mores Pops

Much less messy than the original, but equally as decadent. This is the go-to for any s'mores lover who's really here for the marshmallow above all else.

11. S'mores Tartlets

Prepare for a cuteness overload. These baby pies' graham cracker bases are filled to the brim with chocolate ganache before being topped with torched meringue.

12. S'mores Brownies

Fudgy brownies, graham cracker crust and toasty marshmallow crème? We're not worthy.

13. Campfire Grilled S’more Calzones

This recipe is for serious s'mores fans only. It calls for homemade cinnamon-honey calzone dough, vanilla marshmallows and a flaming-hot grill.

14. Gooey S'mores Ice Cream Cake

How can these hot and cold desserts coexist, you ask? It's frozen one layer at a time. Come for the ice cream and from-scratch chocolate fudge, stay for the toasted marshmallows.

15. S'mores Iced Coffee

Any morning that starts with all the chocolate sauce and Marshmallow Fluff our heart desires is a good one indeed.

16. S'mores Cookies

Brown butter dough + chocolate chips + graham cracker crumbs + gooey marshmallow center = a cookie for the books. We'll be making these for the 4th of July for sure.

17. S’mores Rice Krispie Treats

Fact: We'll never outgrow our favorite lunchbox treat from childhood. Of course, marshmallow is the star, but the treats are also peppered with chocolate chips and graham cracker chunks.

18. Oatmeal-chocolate Chip And Graham Cracker Cookie S’mores

Like an Oatmeal Creme Pie and a s'more had an ooey-gooey baby. Full disclosure, our inner child is freaking out right now.

19. S'mores Pots De Creme

These have romantic alfresco dessert for two written all over them. Everything from the marshmallow meringue to the chocolate custard pudding is homemade (even the almond-flax "graham cracker" crumbs!).

20. Peanut Butter S’mores Bars

Forget crackers—these babies have graham cookies for a base, plus layers of melted peanut butter, milk chocolate and marshmallow.

21. S'mores Muddy Buddies

Psst: Wanna know the secret to becoming the coolest mom on the block? Serve the kids a bowl of this crunchy snack mix at their next slumber party.

22. Raspberry S'more Pie

Sink your teeth into homemade marshmallow crème, chocolate filling, macerated raspberries and a buttery graham cracker crust. Might we suggest making it the centerpiece of your Mother's Day table?

23. S’mores Chocolate Mousse Bars

We had no idea s'mores—the messiest dessert on the planet—could look so damn classy. We'll chalk it up to the glossy torched meringue.

24. Grown-up S’mores With Homemade Cinnamon Graham Crackers

Once you try a fresh-baked graham cracker, you'll never look at the store-bought kind the same again. Now, choose your fighter: peanut butter-banana or dark chocolate-raspberry?

25. Boozy S'mores Milkshake

Sorry kids, this one's just for the grown-ups. It turns out caramel, chocolate and roasted marshmallows are just the match for single-malt Scotch.
