S’mores With Jimmy Kennedy

Getting creative around the campfire with s’mores has become a fun way to get the whole family involved in the gooey treat that we’ve all enjoyed for so many years.

I’ve heard of all kinds of variations on the original, including our chocolate and cheddar s’more idea. The only limit to all the crazy and creative s’more ideas is your imagination. For your next camping trip, backyard BBQ or just dessert after dinner, have the family brainstorm a few s’more ideas. They can be sweet, savory, a combination or all of the above. Some ideas use the traditional marshmallow-on-a-stick technique, and some will require more of a cook-in-a-pan or aluminum foil approach. There’s really no right or wrong way to make or cook s’mores. It’s a “whatever works and what your family comes up with” kind of deal. Have fun with it, get creative and enjoy!

S’mores and More

While the s’mores creations are more ideas than recipes, here’s an oven version that will give you a good idea how to make the cheddar cheesecake s’more at home. If you’re outside and around the campfire, just use a little aluminum foil and warm the s’more up by the fire or even on a cast-iron pan or griddle.



  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Place 8 graham cracker squares on a baking sheet. Top each one with a segment of chocolate followed by a slice of cheese.
  • Top each one with another graham cracker square. Bake for about 4 minutes or just until the cheese and chocolate start to melt.
  • Remove from oven and press down gently on each s’more.
  • Serve warm or let cool to serve later at room temperature.
