Smores Campfire Nachos (Camping, Grill, or Oven)

Our Campfire S mores Nachos are a tasty twist on a traditional savory meal or handheld sandwich, easily made in a disposable baking pan and cooked over the barbecue grill or a campfire grate.

While I love the classic smores camping recipes that call for cooking over an open flame, preparing these dessert nachos in an aluminum foil pan lets you skip the stick (and the mess) and melts the marshmallows with the chocolate on top of the graham crackers.

Get creative with your grilled smores and have fun customizing the fillings for your campfire desserts in foil – pile your pan high with your favorite sweet and salty snacks, fold the contents into a single container, then cook it over the campfire until the marshmallows are brown and the chocolate is melted.

Dig in with a spoon or scoop it (like a s’mores dip) onto the graham cracker segments, this nacho smores dessert is the best way to bake open-faced sandwiches in bulk when you need to feed a crowd.

Why We Love Grilled Smores Nachos

  • Quick and easy to make in 10 minutes.
  • Uses a handful of simple ingredients.
  • Filled with the same chocolate, graham cracker, and marshmallow flavors as the traditional outdoor treat.
  • Campfire dessert recipes require no roasting sticks and no fire needed.
  • Less messy than its classic s’mores counterpart because the contents are contained in a disposable pan.
  • Family-friendly food that makes a fun activity for all.
