Halloween S'mores
Halloween Jack-O-Lantern S'moresWhat could be more fun this Halloween than these s'mores in the shape of Jack-O-Lantern? Halloween-themed s'mores are a fun, spooky treat - great for Halloween baskets, teacher gifts, party favors or just for fun. Homemade marshmallow, graham crackers and chocolate bars - with chocolate chips to decorate the pumpkin's faces!  You could even add a little pumpkin flavoring to the marshmallows if you like. 
Smoosh all of these together, and you've got an ooey, gooey Halloween treat! This edible craft makes a great hands-on activity for a Halloween party, too.  Kids love making different faces on the pumpkins. 
Display on a table, make it a s'mores bar, or wrap them up in cellohpane and tie with ribbon for a sweet (and not-so-scary) gift.  This recipe makes 8 - 10 Jack-o-Lanterns depending on the size of your cookie cutter.




  1. Spray a 9 x 13-inch baking pan and set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer bowl, combine gelatin and water (1), fit with whip attachment and set aside.
  3. Combine sugar and water (2) in saucepan and cover with a lid. Boil for 3 minutes and remove lid. Attach a thermometer on side of pan and boil until syrup reaches 240°F. Do not stir syrup, as this may cause it to crystallize.
  4. Remove from heat, turn mixer to medium speed and while whipping, pour hot syrup in a slow and steady stream onto whipping gelatin. Once all combined, engage mixer in high speed. Add salt.
  5. Whip until mixture feels lukewarm and looks like marshmallow fluff, about 8-12 minutes.  Add 1 - 2 drops of orange food coloring during mixing.
  6. Scrape marshmallow into prepared pan. Spread evenly. Dust with powdered sugar.
  7. Allow to cool, preferably overnight while covered with plastic food wrap.
  8. The next day, remove from pan and using a pumpkin shaped cookie cutter, cut out shapes. Generously toss in powdered sugar.
  9. Prepare Buttercream Frosting (or use store-bought if you are short on time).
  10. Using a pastry bag with a small tip use frosting to“glue” chocolate chips for the eyes, nose and mouth. If you do not have pastry bags, place icinig in a large plastic bag and cut off one of the bottom corners for easy squeezing.
