DIY Dehydrated Roasted Marshmallow S’mores

Dehydrating roasted marshmallows are a treat unto themselves. The s’more topping is just the icing on the cake, so to speak.

These are a full-impact twist on my Dehydrated Marshmallow Pops, giving you a ‘pop’ of a s’more flavor.

Equipment

  • Baking sheets
  • Dehydrator
  • Mesh liners
  • Small bowls

Ingredients

  • Marshmallows: I used the Jet Puffed S’more vanilla marshmallows, but you can use regular or mini marshmallows. If your vegan marshmallows can handle the roasting, they’ll work for this, too! However, since vegan marshmallow recipes are all different, test yours under the heat and in a dehydrator first.
  • Graham Crackers: You can use whatever kind of sweet cracker you have, but graham is traditional. You can use potato chips as a salty crunchy option, or even crushed up chocolate chip cookies.
  • Chocolate Dip: melting chocolates, chocolate chips, white chocolate, hazelnut chocolate spread, anything that works!

Roast Marshmallow: Whether you do this over an open fire, under the broiler of your oven, or with a kitchen butane torch, roasting both sides is recommended.

  • Roast Marshmallow: Whether you do this over an open fire, under the broiler of your oven, or with a kitchen butane torch, roasting both sides is recommended. Place marshmallows in a single-layer to ensure proper roasting and drying.
  • Graham crackers: You can buy them already ground or just put some in a baggie and whack them with a can of vegetables or a mallet.
  • Chocolate: whichever chocolate you choose, melt small amounts at a time so that it doesn’t harden if you have a cooler kitchen.

Do I need a liner to roast in the oven?

NOTE OF CAUTION: While I used parchment paper on this project, a note after the fact could have been what started the oven fire. The directions on the box say don’t use it with a broiler for this reason (who thought to read parchment paper box directions? Obviously, not me! I use them so rarely that I didn’t even think about it. Silicone is out, too.

How to Roast Marshmallows Indoors?

You have a few options for roasting indoors:

  • In your fireplace as if you were doing it over an open flame outside;
  • Over a gas oven element as if you were doing them over an open flame;
  • In the oven, under the broiler, on cookie sheets;
  • With a small kitchen butane torch.

Can You Roast Vegan Marshmallows?

In most cases, yes! You’ll want to test various brands with different formulations first. Good news is that you can also dehydrate them, too!

Can You Use Homemade Marshmallows?

Yes, in most cases. Recipes vary across the internet, but most can be roasted and dried for this process!

Darcy’s Tips

  • Don’t burn things. Seriously. This is what it looks like when you wait five extra seconds, and then the oven goes “floomfph” and you know something is not right. Then there are big flames. Pay attention. Don’t take your eyes off those marshmallows.
  • Keep a high temperature. If you do a lower temperature to protect them, you may find the marshmallows melt instead of roast.
  • Use parchment paper on your baking sheets for the oven. It will save you clean up heartache later.
  • Be sure to use mesh liners on your dehydrator trays. The stickiness from the roasting process will become concrete glue on your metal racks.
  • Be sure to allow the marshmallows to cool for about 15-20 minutes before testing. When still warm, they will be soft and gummy but will harden up, given time to cool.

Pay attention. Don’t take your eyes off those marshmallows. Using parchment paper is likely what started the fire, so don’t use it!
    • If you worry about burning, you can drop the rack down to the 2nd position.
    • Keep a high temperature. If you do a lower temperature to protect them, you may find the marshmallows melt instead of roast.

  1. You might want to clarify the notes in this recipe. The first one says not to use parchment. The fourth bullet point says to use parchment. Otherwise, it looks like a great recipe which I will try in a few weeks.
