S’mores is one of the best parts of summer and camping and vacationing at a fantastic beach house with a fire pit. Summer is usually the only time we have s’mores. But it is so good, that we try every so often to work chocolate, graham crackers, and marshmallows into a dessert.
This time our dessert was S’mores Waffle Sandwiches.
We made delicious, cakey, graham cracker waffles with chocolate chips inside, cut them in half, and sandwiched in the middle mini marshmallows and more chocolate chips. The result was pure summertime bliss without a smoky fire.
Making S’mores Waffle Sandwiches
The pound cake waffle batter that I used as a base for the Milk Chocolate Pound Cake Waffles and the Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake Waffles worked so well being adapted into different flavors, that I used it again, this time using one cup of graham cracker crumbs in place of the vanilla and cocoa powder used for the chocolate waffles, and in place of the lemon juice used for the lemon blueberry waffles.
While the waffle iron preheated, I beat the sugar and butter together until light and fluffy. I then beat in the eggs, coconut milk, and apple cider vinegar. Once smooth, the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda, and mixed the batter on low speed until fully incorporated. The last step was adding in the graham cracker crumbs and stirring them into the batter just enough so they were evenly dispersed through the batter.
When the waffle iron was ready, I spooned the waffle batter into the waffle wells, being careful to not overfill them. The waffles cooked for 3-4 minutes. While the waffles were cooking, I got the mini marshmallows and chocolate chips ready. To get the S’mores Waffle filling all melty, It’s critical that they go on the waffle when it’s piping hot.
When the waffles were done cooking, I quickly removed them from the waffle iron, cut them in half, covered one half with chocolate chips and mini marshmallows, and sandwiched the remaining halves on top to make the S’mores Waffle Sandwiches.
I have to say, this just might be the best sandwich ever.
Eating a S’mores Waffle Sandwich is no joke. You can try to eat it with your hands, which my kids tried to do, but it is best to just use a fork because they’re BIG! You know what else would be awesome? Topping them with vanilla ice cream… but I don’t do ice cream, so we skipped that indulgence.

If you're making several S'mores Waffle Sandwiches, preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Place the waffles in the over as they are done cooking to keep them warm. Just before serving, remove waffles from the oven and set it to broil. Assemble the waffle sandwiches on a baking sheet and place the sheet under the broiler to get them hot and melt the filling. Watch the waffle sandwiches carefully though, they will burn quickly.
