S'mores are one of our favorite desserts. I love making the classic dessert and have also made them in the air fryer, with rice cakes, as a dip and with fun flavors like cotton candy peeps. There is something fun about swapping out the typical ingredients for a fun twist to your s'more, and using fresh fruit just might be my new favorite. Bonus points you don't need an actual campfire to make them! Unless you want to of course.
Campfire strawberries are a really fun way to bring the outdoorsy magic of a campfire to any get together. To make these is super simple, today we're going to level up your typical s'more by swapping your graham crackers for strawberries!
You only need a few ingredients for this sweet treat- fresh strawberries, marshmallow fluff and optional (but recommended) melted chocolate. This would be a great Valentine's Day activity too as a fun twist on chocolate covered strawberries. Serve with this Easy Freeze Dried Strawberries Chocolate Bark and you'll be all set!
What You'll Need To Make Them
- Marshmallow fluff- I recommend melting it a bit.
- Strawberries, washed, fresh and ready to go. Heart shapes would be adorable.
- A skewer (or fork).
- A lighter, actual campfire, or a way to roast the marshmallow. Note- Always be careful with open flames and this is not something a kiddo should do without supervision.
- Chocolate chips to drizzle over the finished strawberry and optional graham cracker crumbs.

How to Make Campfire Strawberries
- Melt about half a cup to a cup of marshmallow fluff in a small bowl. You can dip it directly in the jar but it's a lot easier if it's a bit softer.
- Put your strawberry on a skewer. A fork would work too.
- Dip your strawberry into your Marshmallow fluff and remove slowly, making sure the strawberry is covered.
- Using a kitchen lighter, a campfire, or other (safely controlled and lit) flame, rotate your skewer over the flame as if you're roasting the marshmallow.
- Drizzle with chocolate and sprinkle graham cracker crumbs over the strawberry. Optional, but delicious.
- Always be careful with any flame and keep a close eye on it. The fluff can easily catch on fire. Just like a regular marshmallow, it's up to you how crispy you like your s'mores.
- Add chocolate onto your strawberry by melting chocolate chips in your flavor of choice and piping it onto the marshmallow fluff. If you don't have a piping bag use a ziplock baggie and cut the tip off.
- If you don't have a skewer, use a fork!
Mix Up Your S'mores!
There are so many ways to customize s'mores, but these are some of my favorites.
- using potato chips instead of graham crackers
- swapping the chocolate for reeses
- using peeps as the marshmallows.
Campfire Strawberries with Marshmallow Fluff
- 1 kitchen lighter, campfire, stove burner, etc. always be careful when using an open flame.
- 1 kabob skewer can also use a fork.
- 1 cup marshmallow fluff
- 1 box strawberries or as many as you're wanting to make
- ½ cup chocolate chips to melt and drizzle over strawberries
- 1 tablespoon graham cracker crumbs Optional
- To prep, wash your strawberries and set aside. Put about a cup of marshmallow fluff into a bowl and heat in the microwave for approximately 20 seconds.
- Put a skewer through a strawberry and dip into the marshmallow fluff.
- Using your lighter or fire source, roast the strawberry. Rotate it around to distribute the heat evenly.
- Once roasted to desired amount, remove from heat, once again, be super careful with any fire source.
- Melt your chocolate chips and drizzle over the strawberries. You can use a spoon or pipe the chocolate onto them.
- Optional- top with graham cracker crumbs.
Strawberries+roasted marshmallows+chocolate? Perfect!
