Campfire Grilled S’more Calzones.
S’more season is practically here!
Ok, I feel like the Grinch saying “it’s practically here”, but really S’more season WILL officially be here this weekend (hello Memorial Day!!). Yes, I have probably seen the Grinch one too many times for sure, (but I still love it) but I couldn’t resist because Memorial Day is practically here.
Anyway, I am pretty excited about some cool ideas I have for new twists on the classic S’morse, but today I am actually sharing an idea from my brother Brendan who is living in Salt Lake City and spending the spring and early summer working at a pizza shop…
Not sure why he’s working at a pizza shop making pies, but apparently he’s pretty good at it and he gave me the idea for this S’more creation, so cool!
Originally, I had another post planned (for like months) that I really wanted to show you guys before Memorial Day, but well, unfortunately I relied on an unreliable source and they didn’t come through until the day before for I was leaving for Cali 🙁 I am still pretty excited to share that post, but it’s going to have chill a bit until later in the summer. Luckily, my brother had a great idea for a last-minute fill in, so here we are today with his twist on the classic, campfire grilled S’more calzones.
This version is so fun too (leave it to Brendan to somehow make the already fun S’more just that much more cool!) and even more delicious. So I guess everything turned out pretty great anyway.
These S’mores are also super simple, but the best thing about them is that you can make them in advance and just bring them along to whatever fun spot you may be headed off for. Then just throw them on the already hot grill (in a pan over a campfire works too) and you’ve got an awesome, no effort required, dessert! Just like the classic, but a little better because umm grilled, cinnamon spiked pizza dough…plus one or maybe two, too many, pieces of Hershey’s chocolate squares equals delicious fun!
But we all know you can never have too much chocolate. Maybe too many mallows (cause honestly, I can’t handle more than one marshmallow), but never too much chocolate…clearly.
Oh, and if you’re into it, these can also get a little dusting of powdered sugar and a sprinkle of crushed graham crackers.
BUT, maybe the best part, which yes is optional, is that scoop of ice cream you should most definitely be eating with these. It’s almost like a handheld pie, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Warm chocolate filled marshmallow pies with cold vanilla ice cream.
I really couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate Memorial Day than these cute little calzones. They are something everyone can love and will have fun eating too! They’re even a little less messy than traditional S’mores.
And don’t worry if you can’t wait until Monday and are in dire need a little Tuesday treat… these are perfect for that too!

A delicious twist on the classic sweet
- 1 cup warm water
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 2 cups white whole wheat or whole pastry flour may also use all-purpose flour
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 pound batch of the above dough or 1 store bought pizza or pastry dough
- 2-4 Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bars
- 10 [homemade | https://dev.halfbakedharvest.com/grilled-banana-bread-peanut-butter-smore-with-vanilla-marshmallows/] or store bought marshmallows
- finely crushed graham crackers and powdered sugar for dusting
- vanilla ice cream for serving
In a large bowl, combine water, yeast and honey. Mix with a spoon, then let sit until foamy, about 10 minutes. Add in the 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, cinnamon, salt and olive oil, stirring with a spoon until the dough comes together but is still sticky. Using your hands, on a floured surface, form the dough into a ball and work the additional 1/2 cup flour into the dough if needed. All of the mixing and kneading can also be done in a stand mixer with the dough hook attachment. Next, rub the same bowl with olive oil, then place the dough inside, turning to coat. Cover with a towel and place in a warm place to rise for about 1 hour.
Divide the dough in 10 equal size balls. Then either roll the dough out into a 6 inch circle or divide the balls into two and roll into 2 (3 1/2 inch) circles. Working on one side of the dough or with one dough round, add two pieces of chocolate. Flatten one marshmallow and place it on top of the chocolate. If desired add another two pieces of chocolate (I did). Now either take the top half of the dough and fold it over the filling or add the top round of dough. Crimp the edges of the dough to seal. At this point, the s'mores can be placed on a floured cookies sheet, covered and stored in the fridge overnight or until ready to cook.
Preheat the grill to medium high heat or the oven to 375 degrees F.
Brush the top and bottom of each s'more with melted butter. If baking the s'mores, line a cookie sheet with parchment and place the buttered s'mores on the baking sheet. Bake 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden.
To grill, add the buttered s'mores to the grill and grill for 2-3 minutes per side.
Serve the s'mores warm, dusted with graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar or even served with ice cream.

I had to google S’mores a few years ago when I saw them in my Hummingbird Bakery cookery book and boy I’m glad I did. S’mores are one of America’s greatest exports, but I still need to be convinced to try pop tarts!…
Much love from the UK, Beanie x
Omg, this is such a fantastic idea! I’m stoked to try these out one day! Pinned!
This just took camp fires to a whooole new level…
Seriously Tieghan I don’t know how you do it! I get to your site and I can’t decide which image to pin cause they’re ALL serious foodporn! Hats off to you my dear!! 🙂
S’mores CALZONES?! Whaaaaat? Girl, this is beyond awesome!
This is ridiculously amazing. I’m freaking out right now.
Pretty much dying over here. I like to think of smores season as year around because I can never get enough. And calzones are my next victim to my obsession!
These sound sooo good Tieghan! What a perfect little treat for all those summer parties! And being able to make them ahead….perfect!
This reminds me of the best peanut butter and jelly sandwich I’ve ever tasted… the bread was grilled and had a bit of a charred flavor, which just gave the whole thing so much depth. These dessert calzones are so lovely and have me ready for summer!
DELISH! Smores are life!
Taking it to the next level: Marshmallows on fire in the background! These calzones look amazing!
hello stretch pants!
These are beyond adorable! Love this idea!
These look amazing! Definitely saving this recipe for later!
Woah, that’s awesome 🙂 Would definitely serve with ice cream!
What a great idea!
These are such a fun spin on s’mores, and the cutest calzones ever!
This is such a great idea and it looks so delicious! 🙂
Can these be baked instead?
Yes, the instructions to do so are in the recipe. Have a great Memorial Day!
fantastic, can i bring my tupperware to your place.
it tasted great even my fussy mother in law liked them.
YEAH!! Thank you so much, David! So happy you enjoyed it!
I used graham flour instead of regular whole wheat flour to make the dough a little more like graham crackers. It turned out pretty well!
Thanks Elise! 🙂
Oh my word, these look incredible! I totally agree with you, the chocolate to marshmallow ratio has to be in favor of chocolate 😉
Thank you so much, Mary!!
They look so good I’m already hungry and in the middle of a library which is now quite a bad combination.
Anyway. I was wondering if they could be done in an oven as well because I don’t have a campfire ahead any time soon and it makes me quite sad to not eat them soon…
Do you think it would work?
All of the marshmallow dissolved after cooking these for 15 minutes!
every time i make thee they leak ;n;
I made these with a friend and they tasted HORRIBLE!
are you god or the devil? this looks dangerously amazing oh my god
Thanks Missy! Hope you are having a great weekend!
I’d like to say that I just made these, and one batch of dough is nowhere NEAR enough to make these the way the imagery shows. In order to make the number dictated by the recipe in the size dictated by the recipe, I had to choose between making the dough so thin as to be opaque(in which case, the chocolate would poke holes in the dough) or folding one half over the top, which also caused the dough to be perilously thin, and indeed, despite doing my best to seal them, many of them burst open in the oven). Much of the marshmallow leaked during baking. Hopefully enough remains inside for them to at least TASTE okay.
It should be delicious, following your blog. Thans for sharing!
Wow, that’s very delicious.
Thank you for sharing this incredible recipe.
tha causone is delicious..
Thank you Mario!
Tried tonight in oven… the marshmallow melts with the chocolate too much before bread is done… it was delicious, but was more of a chocolate bread then a s’more.
Glad you still enjoyed it, thanks!
Well that sounds delicious in its own way!! Thanks for making Peggy!
