What a tasty twist on a classic! Strawberry shortcake s'mores! :)

Hey there, Dream A Little Bigger readers! I’m Melissa, from Kid Friendly Things To Do! I’m so happy to meet you!                       Melissa from

I’m a former elementary school teacher turned stay at home mom to 4 little RugRats whom I just happen to love, a volunteer field editor for Taste of Home cooking magazine (yum) – which basically means I create and review recipes for them, a craft, DIY and fun food addict, who’s obsessed with sharing recipes, and fun ideas for just about anything family related! Obsessed, I tell ya!

Today, I have to share my latest Smore’s Addiction! Sometimes, OK…A LOT OF TIMES, I like to take traditional ideas, and put a little twist on them. And, that’s just what this is! Perfect for summertime camping, or backyard summer fun! Introducing a Strawberry Shortcake Smore! Or Heaven, as I like to call it. :)

What a tasty twist on a classic! Strawberry shortcake s'mores! :)

The graham crackers are standing in for your typical Angel Food Cake, and the Marshmallow, well…what would a S’more be without a mallow? Sorry Strawberry Shortcake, I had to do it!

What a tasty twist on a classic! Strawberry shortcake s'mores! :)

For this S’more idea/recipe – you’ll need:

  • 2 lbs. of strawberries, rinsed and sliced
  • 2 T. of granulated sugar
  • Graham Crackers – I used honey flavored
  • Marshmallows – I used the new square shaped S’more Marshmallows from Kraft
  • Hershey Bars, broken into sections like mine, above
  • Refrigerated Whipped Cream


  • In a medium size bowl, mix the sliced strawberries, and granulated sugar – set aside
  • Break your graham crackers into squares
  • Get your campfire, or backyard fire pit ready, and roaring
  • Place your marshmallows on marshmallow roasting sticks, or do it the old fashioned way, like I did when I was a kid…with sticks snapped off trees, and an end shaved down to a spear!
  • Roast your marshmallows to your liking – I like mine burnt to a crisp on the outside! My kids, however,  do not share my love of crisp marshmallows. They like theirs gently toasted, and warm. Disappointing, I know.

When you are ready to assemble your S’more:

  • Set out one graham cracker square
  • Gently slide your toasted marshmallow on top
  • Place a section of Hershey Bar on top of the marshmallow
  • Lay on some delicious, juicy, sweet strawberries. Don’t forget some extra juice from the bottom of the bowl!
  • Place another graham cracker square on top, and here’s the important part…Smush the S’more together!
  • Add a little whipped cream on top

  • I mean, just look at that melted chocolate against those juicy strawberries! Heaven, right?!
  • The most important part…Eat, and enjoy!
