Roasted Strawberry S’mores Recipe

This roasted strawberry s'mores recipe is perfect year round. Juicy, sweet strawberries sandwiched with chocolate and gooey marshmallow...you can't resist!

Can you imagine anything better than roasted strawberries to upgrade the classic s’more recipe? Chocolate, gooey marshmallow, and juicy vanilla-roasted strawberries all sandwiched inside two crispy graham crackers… seriously.

these roasted strawberries take the classic s'more to a whole new level!  I imagine that most people eat s’mores during the summer. At least, it seems, that s’mores are typically made during the traditional “camping” months. However, my family doesn’t camp. And, living in the South means we enjoy warmer weather (70F or more) about 9 months out of the year.

If you tell my kids that s’mores are only summer treats, they will be devastated. Truth be told, we don’t make them often; but when we do, we make an event out of it.

You probably know how much my family loves strawberries; so when California Strawberries asked me to share a recipe with you, I asked my kids what I should make. My daughter said she wanted me to make s’mores. Of course, I had to explain that the recipe needed to have strawberries in it. She said: “why not? you put them in everything else?” She had a point.

roasted vanilla strawberries are the secret ingredient to my winter strawberry s'mores. Super easy and delicious!

I like strawberries for many reasons, but in the winter I particularly like them because one serving has more vitamin C than oranges and a lot less sugar than other fruits. Since they are available year round, I can enjoy my California Strawberries every day. It is one of the most versatile kitchen ingredients!

Truth be told, I had never heard of s’mores until I visited the US during Christmas of 1990. My mom took me to visit Disneyland in California and I went to a marshmallow roasting event with the Chipmunks. I’ll never forget that first gooey, sticky, and delicious s’more. I was smitten.

Of course, more than two decades later, I recreated that classic with a little grownup flare that both kids and adults will love. Memories coming full circle.

You can, of course, spoon the strawberry sauce over ice-cream, fresh yogurt, or pancakes. For these s’mores, I like to spoon the roasted berries at room temperature. If you store them in the refrigerator, all you have to do is warm them up a little prior to assembling your s’mores.

    any health benefits from the strawberries would be completely nullified after smothering them in honey and sandwiching them between graham crackers with chocolate and marshmallows

      thanks for pointing this out Stephanie. This particular recipe is a treat. However, I meant in general strawberries are a great choice for the health benefits.
