Who doesn’t love the ooey-gooey, marshmallowy, melty goodness of a perfectly crafted s’more during a summer camping trip? As these creations have evolved over time from simple campfire concoctions to irresistible gourmet treats, they’ve become a “hot” (see what we did there?) feature at weddings too.
Thinking of incorporating your love of s’mores into your big day? Check out some of our favorite ways.
A DIY S’mores Bar
Sometimes things just taste better when you make them yourself. Aside from the incredible smell (and awesome photo op), guests will delight in making their own treats. For added wow factor, incorporate various types of chocolates or special artisanal graham crackers, such as Asher’s chocolate-covered grahams. Complete the bar with a variety of gourmet marshmallows, like Smashmallows, which come in seven distinct and delectable flavors.
Your Wedding Cake
Your wedding cake flavor and design are the perfect opportunity to represent your favorite flavors, textures, and personality. For the super s’mores-loving couple, opt for marshmallow icing with graham-cracker crumbles and chocolate ganache to give the taste, and look, of a s’more! Remember to stay simple and minimal; it can be easy to go overboard here, but this would be the time to reign it in.
S'mores Bars, Cupcakes, Ice Cream, Sticky Buns, S'mores Jars (Oh My!)
S'mores bars make the perfect accompaniment to any Venetian hour or dessert display. Handheld and easy to nibble on, s’mores bars and brownies are not only fun, they're delicious too.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, they take cupcake form. Yep, with graham-cracker-flavored cake and s’more accents on top, these cupcakes will be a surefire hit.
That's right: ice cream. Give your guests mini cones filled with graham-cracker ice cream, topped with a perfectly caramelized marshmallow topper. It's an essential for a summertime soirée.
We'll just leave this one here. No words…
Make like the iconic NYC eatery the Smith and have your caterer whip up s'mores in a jar for dessert. The Smith crafts the treat with chocolate pudding, graham-cracker crumble, toasted marshmallow, and a dark-chocolate crunch bar.
End your big day on a sweet note by gifting your guests perfectly packaged ingredients to make their own s'mores from the comfort of their own homes.
Why not combine your love for the treat with a fan-favorite cocktail—the martini? Just be sure to speak with your bartenders or wedding planner beforehand to ensure the perfect recipe and presentation.
Or, you can include Smirnoff’s Fluffed Marshmallow Vodka in your liquor offerings for guests to sip paired with club soda, Bailey's, or whatever else they can think of!
Instead of a grandiose exit or that awkward moment when the lights turn up on the dance floor, invite your guests to join you for a s’more session by a campfire. A unique alternative to a sparkler send-off, this adds on some quality time for you to enjoy with your guests while you're also relaxing and sharing sweet treats.
