A perfect food bar idea for graduation parties, weddings, and birthday parties
Who doesn’t like making S’mores? And hosting a s’mores bar is easy, as you just have to pull a few ingredients together.
Some of the links on my website are affiliate links which means that I may earn small commissions at no additional cost to you if you decide to make a purchase.
Traditional Key Items/Ingredients:
- Graham crackers
- Hershey bars, (box of 36 bars or snack size bars)
- Roasting sticks (disposal wooden sticks or metal roasting sticks)
- Sterno canned heat
A fun twist on ingredients:
Some people like to offer options within their s’mores bar. In case you want to expand your s’mores bar, I’ve included some ideas below.
Additional graham cracker options:
- Fudge Stripped cookies – this is what we often did at our Girl Scout camp outings
- Chocolate chip cookies
- Vanilla Pizzelle waffle cookies
- Speculoos Cookies
- Biscoff Cookies
- Ritz Crackers (yes, it’s good!)
Additional chocolate options:
Additional marshmallow options:
If you haven’t checked out the baking aisle recently, you should do so as you plan your s’mores bar. They have many new marshmallow flavors and colors. You may decide to add more than just the traditional marshmallow to your bar.

The s’mores option above takes the requirement for building a fire out of the equation.
Our friends, Mike and Caroline, made this S’mores bar organizer in just a couple of hours. They bought their wood at a local hardware store and asked them to cut their wood to the appropriate lengths. This made the project much easier. It would be easy to make this whatever size is right for your party. I’ve seen really long ones used for large weddings.
If your party is small, you may event consider a solution like the one show below from Amazon (click image to see item info on Amazon).
We had so much fun making S’mores while at Jaclyn’s graduation party yesterday that I’ve decided that I want one of these for myself. We regularly have people over for small parties, and I know this would be a big hit! If I do create one, I’ll add step by step instructions! For now, I’ll add one last photo of this awesome S’mores bar display.
