Why You’ll Love this Easy Campfire Recipe
As the name implies, they’re easy to make. But they’re also super cute and easy to eat.
They’re the more fun cousin to the romantic chocolate covered strawberry and somehow just more enjoyable to eat with friends and everyone you love.
Tips to Perfect Strawberry S’mores
Tip #1: Melt your chocolate in a tall, skinnier jar
This will make it so much easier full dip your strawberry in without having to struggle getting it fully covered.
Tip #2: Use Ghirardelli Melting Wafers
Chocolate melts will dry faster and will be shinier. Overall it just looks a little more luxe. I always choose to use Ghirardelli melting wafers because they taste so much better than other candy melts on the market (*cough* *cough* like Wilton).
Tip #3: Heat the Marshmallow Fluff
You’re going to want to heat your marshmallow fluff for 10-15 second intervals so that it is smooth and it’s easy to dip the berries.
Tip #4: Allow the Chocolate to Harden Fully before dipping
If your chocolate isn’t completely set and hardened, it can soften in the fluff, which will result in brown streaks in the fluff.
If you’re concerned about this, you can always just scoop out a cup of marshmallow fluff and put it in a microwave safe container before heating it. Then if you get streaks, it’s no big deal and much less waste.
Tip #5: Dip Your strawberry only halfway into the fluff
Fluff is sticker than the chocolate and if you dip that berry too far in, you have a higher likelihood of that marshmallow fluff just pulling your strawberry in off your skewer.
That’s a sad, messy affair to deal with.
Tip #6: You’ll probably have leftover ingredients
We probably won’t use all the melted chocolate or marshmallow fluff. That’s to be expected. Since we’re dipping these we need to make sure that we have enough depth to dip, which results in some excess leftovers.
Tip #7: I prefer using a torch
First of all, the torch toasts the mallow faster and perfectly.
Secondly, there’s no risk of melting all the chocolate off.
Thirdly, and most importantly, a kitchen torch is just so much fun to use and I will find any reason to use mine.
Tip #8: Best Served Fresh
Chocolate covered strawberries should always be served the same day you made them for perfect texture and taste. With strawberry s’mores this is even more vital.
Toasted marshmallow is best served fresh and I don’t think anyone can disagree with me on that.
Tip #9: Strawberry s’mores make great party desserts
Concerned about making dessert for a party?
Don’t. Set up an easy strawberry s’mores station and let people diy their own.
A. it’s more fun to DIY it and B. now you can actually relax and enjoy the party.
Materials for Amazing Strawberry S’mores
So good news. Not only are these a super easy campfire recipe, they also require a very small shopping list, which is always a good thing.
Here’s what you’ll need…
- Skewers – Don’t be a dummy who tries to make these with a torch too close your hands. (not that I have ever been that dummy…………..)
- Ghirardelli Melting Wafers – Remember it’s better than those icky candy melts and will work best with less effort from you.
- Marshmallow Fluff – duh.
- Fresh Strawberries – also, duh.
- Torch/Campfire – I will ALWAYS choose the torch because frankly, I like setting things on fire (safely of course). Plus, campfires are banned so often where I live due to droughts.
But seriously, just bite the bullet and get yourself a kitchen torch. You’re going to love it. Make s’mores. Make creme brulee. Make your inner pyros dreams come true.

Strawberry S’mores: An Easy Campfire Recipe
- 10 fresh strawberries
- 10 oz Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Melting Wafers
- 1 cup Marshmallow Fluff
- Wash and dry strawberries. Stick a skewer through the top of each and set aside.
- Melt your chocolate wafers until smooth and creamy.
- Dip your strawberries into the chocolate. As you pull out, gently twist the skewer for a perfectly dipped strawberry.
- Rest the dipped berry on a silicone baking mat while it hardens. (Check the article for other ways you can let your chocolate rest while it hardens). You may want to consider sticking the berry in the fridge for a minute or two to really make sure the chocolate is solid.
- Warm your marshmallow fluff in the microwave in 10-15 second intervals, mixing in between each time. You want your fluff to be smooth and easily dippable. **
- Dip your strawberry halfway in. Pull it out and torch it until golden brown. (or roast it over a fire until lightly toasted).
