  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 12 marshmallows
  • 12 pieces of chocolate (about the size of a marshmallow)
  • Oil for frying
  • Powdered sugar for dusting


  1. Prepare the Coating: In a shallow bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Mix well to ensure even distribution of ingredients.
  2. Prepare the Egg Wash: In another bowl, whisk together the beaten eggs and milk until well combined. This mixture will help the coating adhere to the marshmallows and chocolate.
  3. Assemble the Bombs: Skewer each marshmallow and a piece of chocolate onto a toothpick, creating the classic S’mores combination.
  4. Coat the Bombs: Dip each skewered marshmallow and chocolate into the egg mixture, ensuring they are fully coated. Then, roll them in the graham cracker mixture until they are evenly covered with the delicious crumbs.
  5. Heat the Oil: In a deep fryer or large pot, heat the oil to 375°F (190°C). The oil should be hot enough to fry the bombs quickly and evenly.
  6. Fry to Perfection: Carefully place a few coated bombs into the hot oil at a time. Fry them until they turn a beautiful golden brown, which should take about 2-3 minutes. Keep an eye on them to prevent overcooking.
  7. Drain and Dust: Once fried to perfection, remove the bombs from the oil using a slotted spoon and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil. Before serving, dust the bombs with powdered sugar for an extra touch of sweetness.

Serving and Storage Tips

Once you’ve whipped up a batch of these irresistible Fried S’mores Bombs, here are some serving and storage tips to ensure they are enjoyed to the fullest:

Serving Suggestions:

  1. Serve Warm: Fried S’mores Bombs are best enjoyed warm, straight from the fryer. The gooey melted chocolate and marshmallow filling is at its peak deliciousness when served freshly fried.
  2. Presentation: Arrange the Fried S’mores Bombs on a serving platter and dust them with powdered sugar for an elegant touch. You can also serve them with a side of chocolate sauce or whipped cream for dipping, adding an extra layer of indulgence.
  3. Garnish: For a decorative touch, garnish the serving platter with a few extra graham cracker crumbs or a sprinkle of cocoa powder. This not only enhances the presentation but also adds to the flavor profile of the dessert.
  4. Pairing: These decadent treats pair well with a variety of beverages such as hot chocolate, coffee, or even a glass of milk. The combination of the warm, crispy exterior and the creamy, chocolatey interior is simply irresistible.

Storage Tips:

  1. Immediate Consumption: Fried S’mores Bombs are best enjoyed immediately after frying when they are at their freshest and most delicious. However, if you have leftovers, here’s how to store them properly:
  2. Refrigeration: If you have any leftover Fried S’mores Bombs, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Make sure they have cooled completely before storing to prevent sogginess.
  3. Reheating: To reheat refrigerated Fried S’mores Bombs, place them on a baking sheet and heat them in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 5-7 minutes, or until heated through. This will help restore their crispy texture and gooey center.
  4. Freezing: While Fried S’mores Bombs are best enjoyed fresh, you can freeze any leftovers for longer-term storage. Place the cooled bombs in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze until firm. Once frozen, transfer them to a freezer-safe bag or container and store for up to 1 month. To reheat, bake them directly from frozen in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 10-12 minutes, or until heated through.


Looking to add a creative twist to your Fried S’mores Bombs? Here are some delightful variations to experiment with, each offering a unique flavor experience:

  1. Nutty Crunch: Add a crunchy texture by incorporating crushed nuts such as almonds, pecans, or peanuts into the graham cracker coating. Simply mix the nuts with the graham cracker crumbs before coating the marshmallows and chocolate for an extra layer of flavor and crunch.
  2. Fruity Fusion: Elevate the classic S’mores flavor by sandwiching a slice of banana or strawberry between the marshmallow and chocolate before coating and frying. The combination of sweet fruit and melty chocolate adds a refreshing twist to this indulgent dessert.
  3. Caramel Drizzle: Take your Fried S’mores Bombs to the next level by drizzling them with warm caramel sauce before serving. The rich, buttery flavor of the caramel complements the sweet marshmallow and chocolate, creating a decadent treat that’s sure to impress.
  4. Spiced Sensation: Infuse your Fried S’mores Bombs with warm spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, or pumpkin pie spice for a cozy, seasonal twist. Simply add the desired spices to the graham cracker coating mixture before coating the bombs for a comforting flavor that’s perfect for chilly evenings.
  5. Double Chocolate: For all the chocolate lovers out there, why not double up on the chocolatey goodness? Use chocolate-flavored graham crackers or cocoa powder in the coating mixture, and swap out the plain chocolate pieces for your favorite chocolate candy or spread. The result? An extra indulgent treat that’s sure to satisfy any chocolate craving.
  6. Miniature Delights: For a fun and bite-sized twist, make mini Fried S’mores Bombs by using mini marshmallows and chocolate chips instead of full-sized marshmallows and chocolate pieces. These bite-sized treats are perfect for parties or as a sweet snack any time of day.
  7. Peanut Butter Paradise: Add a creamy and nutty flavor to your Fried S’mores Bombs by spreading a thin layer of peanut butter onto the marshmallow before coating and frying. The combination of peanut butter, chocolate, and graham cracker creates a heavenly flavor combination that’s hard to resist.


  1. Can I bake the Fried S’mores Bombs instead of frying them? Yes, you can bake the bombs in a preheated oven at 375°F (190°C) for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. However, frying gives them a crispier texture.
  2. Can I use gluten-free ingredients to make these bombs? Absolutely! You can substitute gluten-free graham cracker crumbs and flour to make this recipe gluten-free.
  3. Can I use an air fryer to fry the bombs? Yes, you can try using an air fryer. Coat the bombs with cooking spray and air fry at 375°F (190°C) for about 5-7 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. How do I prevent the chocolate from melting completely during frying? Using chocolate pieces about the size of the marshmallow and frying the bombs for a short duration at the correct temperature helps prevent excessive melting.
  5. Can I use different types of chocolate in this recipe? Absolutely! Experiment with dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, or even flavored chocolate bars to customize the flavor of your Fried S’mores Bombs.
  6. Can I make these bombs ahead of time and reheat them later? Yes, you can prepare the bombs ahead of time and reheat them in the oven at 350°F (175°C) for a few minutes until warmed through.
  7. How do I prevent the coating from falling off during frying? Make sure the coating sticks well by pressing it firmly onto the marshmallows and chocolate before frying. Additionally, avoid overcrowding the fryer to ensure even frying.
  8. Can I make these bombs without eggs? You can try using a mixture of water or milk and cornstarch or commercial egg replacers as a substitute for eggs in this recipe.
