Perfect Air Fryer Smores

Air fryer smores are seriously addicting, with gooey marshmallow and melted chocolate between crispy graham crackers. Make indoor smores in only 7 minutes!

There’s nothing fancy or complicated about putting air fryer smores together, since they are assembled the same way as the classic campfire method.

Plus, you don’t have to try and balance the different components or try to slide off the marshmallow without burning your fingers. Everything is easy to put together right on the counter.

Air Fryer Smores

Tips and Tricks for the Perfect Indoor Smores
  1. Slice the marshmallows in half. Since the air fryer has a fan, it can blow the marshmallows around before they have a chance to soften. When they are cut open, the side with the center will stick to the graham crackers to hold them in place.

  2. Tip for easy cleanup: Cut a piece of parchment to fit in the bottom of the basket, leaving space around the outside so the air can still circulate. This prevents a sticky mess and makes it easier to lift the homemade smores out when they are done!

  3. If you want burnt marshmallows, try adding an extra minute or two to the cooking time. Be sure to keep a close eye on them if you do so the crackers don’t burn as well.

  4. Feeding a crowd? Place each batch on a large plate or sheet pan and tent with foil. This will keep them warm without causing the grahams to become too soft.

Get creative with flavors!

Swap out the chocolate pieces for a Reeses peanut butter cup instead. Or, leave it off entirely and smear hazelnut spread over the top half of the graham crackers.

For something more unique, add a pretzel between the marshmallow and chocolate layers. Even a little peanut butter or cookie butter will add a new dimension of flavor.

Supplies for Making Indoor Smores

  • Air Fryer - Different brands and sizes will require different cooking times, so be familiar with your model and make adjustments as needed.

  • Parchment paper or a Heat-safe spatula for transferring the treats in and out of the basket.

  • A sharp knife cuts through marshmallows easily without squishing them.

Air Fryer Smores FAQ

Can I use large s’more size marshmallows?

Yes, but they will expand over the sides of the graham crackers and become a lot messier.

I would definitely recommend using parchment to prevent gooey bits from getting stuck in the bottom of the air fryer.

Does this smores recipe taste the same as roasting them over the fire?

Honestly, I think they come out better this way! The outside gets nice and crispy without being burnt, while the center is extra gooey.

It creates the perfect balance of textures and is still hot enough to melt the chocolate.

Can I cook a fully assembled smore instead?

Unfortunately, this didn’t test well because the chocolate became liquid from the heat.

It’s best to just use the appliance to toast the marshmallows and let the residual heat soften the candy afterwards.
