About Mini S’mores Pies
Perfect for large groups, movie nights, or even date nights, these mini s’mores pies have all the flavor of a campfire s’more packed into an individual-sized pie.
Do you have to toast the marshmallow topping?
A classic s’more is prepared over a campfire, and this recipe mimics that by using a kitchen torch to toast the top of the marshmallow.
But do you have to do that? Can you serve the pies without toasting?
While toasting has a small impact on taste and a big impact on presentation, it’s not required. The delicious combination of chocolate, marshmallow, and graham cracker are the fundamentals of what makes a s’more a s’more, and these pies have all those flavors completely covered.
Can you use a broiler for toasting the marshmallow?
For these pies, it is not recommended to toast the marshmallow under the broiler. Doing this will impact the ganache filling beneath the fluff.
How long do mini s’mores pies last?
For these s’mores pies, there are two options for storage:
- If you’re making these pies in advance, prepare them per the recipe instructions but hold off on adding the marshmallow fluff. It’s best to add the marshmallow fluff just before serving, as the pies store much better (and for longer) without it. The mini s’mores pies without marshmallow fluff can be stored in a sealed container on the counter for up to three days.
- If you’ve already prepared the mini s’mores pies, including adding the marshmallow fluff, then they should be eaten the same day. The pies can be stored for a maximum of 24 hours in a sealed container in the refrigerator, but the longer the pies sit the more the moisture from the marshmallow fluff will impact the texture of the other ingredients.
Can you freeze these mini s’mores pies?
Technically, yes, they can be frozen – but it’s tricky and there are exceptions.
The marshmallow fluff will likely not freeze solid due to the high sugar content, so if you’ve already topped your pies with fluff, be sure that nothing will be resting on top of them as it’ll make a mushy mess of the pies. If you’re freezing the fully assembled pies, they can be stored in a sealed container for up to three months.
All that being said, the best way to freeze these pies is without the marshmallow fluff topping. When stored in a sealed container or freezer bag, the ganache-filled pies can be frozen for up to three months.
Notes & tips for these s’mores pies

How to make mini s’mores pies
This next part is only a photo tutorial of the recipe steps. If you’re looking for the full recipe measurements and instructions, scroll down to Recipe Details.
Step 1 – First things first, set up your work area. Arrange the mini graham cracker pie crusts on a baking sheet or large plate so that they’ll be easy to move around. Next, add the chopped chocolate to a large bowl. Set both aside for now.
Step 2 – Place heavy whipping cream in a small saucepan, then warm the cream up over medium heat. Once the cream starts to simmer around the edges, quickly remove it from heat and pour it over the chocolate.
Step 3 – Let the chocolate and cream sit for five minutes, then whisk until a smooth ganache forms.
Step 4 – Divide the chocolate ganache evenly between the graham cracker pie crusts.
Step 5 – Transfer the pie crusts to the fridge so the chocolate can set.
Step 6 – Remove the pies from the fridge and top with marshmallow fluff. To get the full s’mores effect, use a kitchen torch to lightly brown the top of the marshmallow (but you can also skip this step if you’d like). Top with a mini Hershey bar.
Step 7 – Serve and enjoy!
