Memorial Day is coming up – and summer is right around the corner, which means treats should be fun and easy, right?

And these s’mores couldn’t be more that!

You know I love a good s’mores and these deliver – all you need are graham crackers, candy melts and marshmallows – and some decorative sprinkles, of course! Feel free to double or triple the quantities shown; this recipe scales up beautifully.

You can serve the crackers and marshmallows separately on a tray, or do as I did and create little bundles that guests can grab to create their s’mores! And talk about versatile – you can easily swap the graham crackers for a gluten-free version, and switch up the candy melts for any themed celebration (Halloween? Gender reveal? Christmas? S’mores know no season!).

Red White and Blue S’moresh

12 graham crackers (regular or gluten-free)
1 cup red candy melts
1 cup blue candy melts
12 marshmallows
decorative sprinkles (I love these red white and blue star sprinkles)

Cut the graham crackers in half, for a total of 24 squares. For the neatest cuts use a serrated knife and a gentle sawing motion down the middle.

Melt the red candy melts in the top half of a double boiler set over barely simmering water. Working with one cracker at a time, dip into the bowl and gently tap on the rim to remove any excess. Place on a piece of waxed paper. Repeat with 11 more squares; top with sprinkles. Clean out your bowl.

Repeat the above process with the blue candy melts (do not top with sprinkles). Let set.

To make your s’mores, roast a marshmallow and place on one blue cracker. Immediately top with the dipped side of a red cracker and press gently. Eat immediately!
