These grown-up mascarpone s'mores are a healthier, real food version of the classic summer dessert. You won't believe these are actually healthy.

This month’s Recipe Redux challenge invites members to create a hand-held dessert recipe destined to be the next big trend.

I’m a dessert girl at heart, so I was happy to see this challenge. I think cupcakes are getting a bit overdone, so I decided to create a recipe that’s been on my to-do list for months.

Last summer when I visited Hershey Park with my family, I was captivated by the “S’mores Cart” that sold several variations of s’mores using different Hershey candy products. This is genius because everyone loves s’mores, right?

I sampled one of their creations, and while it was a yummy treat, I had to lie down shortly after eating it so my stomach could recover. The ingredients in that s’more were the opposite of nutritious, and in my sugar-induced stupor, I thought to myself, “There has to be a better way. . .”

I’m happy to report that there is a better way to eat a s’more. My version is made with whole grain, homemade graham crackers, homemade mascarpone cream, and homemade chocolate sauce. I also have a homemade gluten-free graham cracker recipe if you don’t want the wheat version.

There isn’t a grain of refined sugar in these grown-up s’mores, but they’re rich and delicious. After you’ve tasted these, you’ll never look at a marshmallow s’more the same way again.

Mascarpone S'mores
Prep Time:15 minutes
Cook Time:15 minutes
Total Time:30 minutes


Ingredients for the Graham Crackers

  • 2 1/4 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Ingredients for the Mascarpone Cream

Ingredients for the Chocolate Sauce

  • 2 ounces chocolate (e.g. Baker's single ingredient chocolate)
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbs honey


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and grease a cookie sheet.
  • To make the graham crackers, mix together the dry ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the butter, honey, and vanilla extract. Add the dry ingredients and mix until a ball forms.
  • Place the ball onto the cookie sheet. With a rolling pin, roll out the dough into a large rectangle about 1/4-inch thick. Use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut the crackers into 2 1/2-inch by 2 1/2-inch squares. Pierce the tops of the crackers with a fork.
  • Bake for 10 minutes. If you’d like crispy crackers, turn off the oven after 10 minutes but leave the crackers in the oven with the door open for an additional 5 minutes. Keep an eye on them to make sure the edges don’t get too brown. When they're out of the oven, re-cut the crackers and let them cool on a wire rack. (Note: This makes 18 crackers, but you’ll only need 12 for the s’mores recipe.)
  • To make the mascarpone cream, whip together the mascarpone and the honey in the bowl of a stand mixer. You may need to add a little milk or water if the mascarpone is too thick to yield a spreadable cream.
  • To make the chocolate sauce, melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a small saucepan. Stir in the honey.
  • Assemble the s’mores by placing a layer of chocolate sauce on 12 graham crackers. Add a layer of mascarpone cream (I use this fun frosting tool), and then drizzle more chocolate on top.

  1. I’ve been so excited to make your homemade graham crackers…looks like this weekend the stars will align! (: Also never commented that I’m also a s’more lover in the biggest way!! My husband has even bought me cheesy s’mores sweatshirts. It came from my grandma who would drive around a campground until she found still-smoldering coals…so she could immediately roast s’mores before putting the tent up w/ her kids!

    1. Thanks, Serena. I hope you like the graham crackers. That’s such a fun memory about your grandmother. Who doesn’t love a s’more?

  2. Wow. I totally thought I commented on this already. Anyways, s’mores are one of my favorite treats ever. Seriously. I love this! Can’t wait to try it out!
