If you have an indoor fireplace, try recreating the classic indoors! Gather friends and family around the fireplace, roast marshmallows, and make some s’mores! It may become a new tradition.
You can even try something new and spruce up the classic s’more by using ingredients or methods listed below!

Fireplace Maintenance and Cleaning Is Critical for S’more Making
Roasting marshmallows in the fireplace can become great memories with loved ones. However, it’s important to stay on top of fireplace maintenance to prevent chimney fires due to creosote buildup. Annual, or even seasonal cleanings and inspections, depending upon usage, are important to remove creosote before it builds up.
Get your fireplace inspected and cleaned so you can enjoy your fireplace with your family.
How to Make S’mores without Fire
If you don’t have access to a fireplace, this indoor s’more recipe is conveniently made in your oven and quick to make! It tastes just like the classic!
We recommend using a cast iron skillet for this recipe:
- In a 6-inch skillet, pour 1 cup of chocolate chips or chunks and place 8 large marshmallows on top.
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
- Once ready, bake for 7-9 minutes, or until the marshmallows turn golden brown.
- Serve with graham crackers for scooping.
No Kitchen Ventilation? No S’mores.
Indoor air quality is extremely important, especially in the kitchen where a lot of cooking and cleaning happens. Ensure that your kitchen is safe by turning on your kitchen ventilation system while cooking. This helps remove smoke, pollutants from natural gas, and other harmful airborne particles.
If you don’t have a kitchen ventilation system, install one! Poor indoor air quality can negatively affect one’s health and hinder you from enjoying one of these indoor s’more recipes!
