    13 Things That Will Help You Make The Perfect S'mores This Summer

    Whether or not you have a campfire, or even a yard. Want s'more?

Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. This compact electric s'more maker so you can gather round to experience the joys of the roasting marshmallows and smushing them between graham crackers — without needing a yard or giant bonfire. (A true win for apartment dwellers.)

    Promising Review: "I love this s'mores maker! I recently bought s'mores supplies at the store and wanted to make them without a bonfire. I'm SO happy I chose this s'mores maker! Right out of the box, it started heating quickly. After it was glowing red, we started toasting marshmallows! I was surprised how brown and toasty it was able to get the marshmallows — and so quickly. The time to get the marshmallow toasty was just about equivalent to a bonfire (minus the bonfire smell!!). The s'mores do even have that outdoor familiar taste. We love it and will be using it again and again! Great product." —Ashley Schenkel

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    2. Some really extendable skewers with two prongs to stick your marshmallows over the fire without having to stand too close — singed eyebrows take a while to grow back. The rubber tips also make sure you don't accidentally burn your hand!,

    They collapse to 12 inches and extend to 32 inches!

    Promising Review: "I have other telescopic roasting sticks but bought these ones because I find the prong on my other ones a bit too widely spaced. These are perfect for roasting a single marshmallow, you can hold one on two prongs so that it doesn’t rotate as it gets warm. The tips are dull, so they are ideal for young kids to use safely. The pole also has a nice rubber end to hold, and the metal does not get warm all the way up, so it keeps your hand safe. The length of them is great. They are lightweight and pack small for camping. They are also easy to clean. To me, they are the perfect roasting sticks. Great for roasting wieners also." —Eagle

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    3. Or, these marshmallow roasting sticks that spin so you can evenly roast your marshmallow for the perfect s'more every time!


    It includes a biscuit attachment so you can roast dough or biscuits over the fire and make a toasted cup to fill with treats!

    Promising Review: "The sticks arrived in good packaging. I've used and even made something like this in the past, but these are really well made. The easy turn rotary handle is a MAJOR improvement on the ones I've had in the past. When you're cooking something on the end of the sticks, it makes it so much easier to rotate and evenly cook around the campfire. If you wanna have a fun easy meal around a campfire or a backyard fire, Wolf'em sticks are awesome." —Spencer

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99.

    4. Of course, you can always just opt for some old school heavy duty wooden skewers for tradition's sake. These wooden skewers are super durable, so you won't have to worry about them snapping or catching fire, either.


    Promising Review: "I'm terrible at measurements, so when these arrived, I was shocked at how long they were... in a good way! They're very durable sticks. They worked great for roasting marshmallows — even my 3-year-old nephew had no problem — and we weren't worried about getting burned by the fire. We used these when we went camping, and we realized we didn't have anything to move the burning logs with. So I used two of these sticks together, and they had enough strength for me to readjust the logs... they're that strong! I would definitely buy these again." —Elizabeth W

    5. An uber convenient microwave s'more maker because sometimes it's not about the journey but the end result. Just pop this bad boy in the microwave, and you'll have gooey marshmallows and perfectly melted chocolate in 30 seconds!

    Promising Review: "This is a great item! You fill it with water and then microwave it for 30 seconds. The s'mores come out nice and warm and don't become rock-like after microwaving a marshmallow. The chocolate also gets melted. This was a great conversation starter and gift. It's perfect for those who love this kind of treat and for those times when you'd like a s'more but camping or having a fire is a no-go. Highly recommend." —Krista

    Get it from Amazon for $17.81.

    6. This ingenious but simple s'more maker rack to keep your s'mores together and stacked as they cook (and your mouth watering). You can stick the rack in your oven or on your grill — no campfire or skewers required!


    Promising Review: "Having had to put off planned backyard s'mores several weekends in a row due to inclement weather, I was happy to find this little device. I was able to make s'mores in the oven on a rainy night, so the kids were happy. Easy to use, easy to clean. We did need to cook a bit longer than they mentioned, but perhaps we like our marshmallows more melted. Overall, we are pleased with the purchase." —Mary Ann Carroll

    Get it from Amazon for $13.31.

    7. A (bougie) gourmet s'more kit that's perfect for those of us who prefer glamping to camping. But seriously, these kits give you cocoa graham crackers or mint chocolate squares that take your basic backyard s'mores to the next level. Each kit makes four s'mores!


    Promising Review: "These s’mores are the perfect favor for my sister’s virtual baby shower! Our friends absolutely loved it, and the flavors are perfect!" —Lyndsey Lowe

    Get it from Nineteen27Smores on Etsy for $16.20 (available in four flavors).

    8. For a more committed s'more lover (s'mlover?), this 22-inch fire pit so you can sit outside in your yard and roast s'mores over your own cozy, crackling fire. It comes with a mesh spark screen to keep embers and debris contained and a wood-handled poker to work the logs or coal. All you gotta bring are the s'mores!, Amazon

    Promising Review: "I have been looking for a fire pit for the backyard and camping for some time. I wanted something light and not too big. This fire pit is perfect for my needs. I wanted to have s’mores during outdoor movie night with my friends and family. This fire pit has brought so much joy. Worth every penny. I put this together in under 10 mins. Very easy." —Nikki

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    9. Or, for something more accessible, a portable campfire that you can take with you into the woods or light up in your own backyard. If you place it on a backyard table, you can even recreate a temporary fire pit!,

    Promising Review: "I've used these a few times now on my back patio. It's a shared space in the city, and these campfires don't give off embers or smoke (very little, anyway). They put out a surprising amount of flame and heat for their size. They're easy to light, and the components in the unscented version are non-toxic, so you can do s'mores or hot dogs over them. Burn time varies, but I haven't had one burn for less than two hours. I also have a couple in my emergency supplies. A little pricey, but you get quality in return." —Scott B.

    Get one pack from Amazon for $27.99+ (also available in two packs).

    10. This classic cast iron skillet for getting creative and making your own s'more dip right in the oven., John Gara / BuzzFeed

    It has a button to switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit, if you needed that!

    Promising Review: "Good, quick readings to the tenth of degrees (in Fahrenheit) make this so helpful when making yogurt and marshmallows or candy, as well as for grilling meats. Just what we needed and at such a good price. We bought a second one to keep in the camper." —HannahMary

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in three colors).
