How to make Croissant S’mores

Check out these Croissant S’mores! Yes, they are exactly how good you think they are!

Whether if you’re camping out or staying home – treats are in order. Here is a gourmet twist to the classic combo – s’mores. Talk about  taking it up a notch? That’s what I did. No wonder it’s filed under Chubby Girl Delights!

Making Croissant S’mores

Instead of using graham crackers, you’ll be using croissants to encase the gooey marshmallows and melted chocolate.

Here’s how you can make Croissant S’mores:



Croissants (store-bought or homemade)
Chocolate bars or chocolate chips


1. Preheat your oven or toaster oven to 350°F (175°C).

2. Slice the Croissants: Carefully slice the croissants in half horizontally, creating a top and a bottom piece. You can also use pre-sliced croissants if available.

3. Prepare the Chocolate: Break the chocolate bars into smaller pieces or use chocolate chips. You’ll want enough chocolate to cover the surface of the croissants.

4. Assemble the Croissant S’mores: Place marshmallows and chocolate pieces on the bottom half of each croissant. You can use as much chocolate and marshmallow as you prefer, but be careful not to overstuff, as the croissants need to close.


5. Warm in the Oven: Place the prepared croissants on a baking sheet and put them in the preheated oven. Bake for a few minutes, just until the chocolate starts to melt and the marshmallows begin to puff up. This should take about 3-5 minutes, but keep a close eye on them to prevent burning.

6. Combine and Serve: Once the chocolate is melted and the marshmallows are soft and slightly toasted, remove the croissants from the oven. Carefully place the top half of each croissant on the melted marshmallows and chocolate.

7. Serve Warm: Croissant S’mores are best enjoyed while they’re still warm and gooey. Be cautious when biting into them, as the melted chocolate and marshmallows can be hot.


8. Optional Toppings: If you’d like to add more flavor and texture, you can also sprinkle some crushed graham crackers, powdered sugar, or drizzle melted chocolate on top of the croissants before serving.

Remember that Croissant S’mores are a bit different from traditional s’mores due to the buttery and flaky nature of croissants. The result is a delightful blend of sweet and savory flavors. Enjoy your unique twist on this classic treat!
