1. Choose your marshmallows wisely
Sugar fans hoping to stuff has much marshmallow as possible into their s’more turn to giant marshmallows to fit their needs. Unfortunately, this sumptuous creation …

… often turns into a hard-to-eat mess as soon as you take a bite.

For maximum marshmallow with minimum mess, try cutting a giant marshmallow in half and layering it with the chocolate. Not only will the marshmallow be less likely to ooze everywhere, but your s’more will be beautifully balanced and aesthetically pleasing.

2. Doctor your chocolate
Similarly, cut thick chocolate bars like Milky Way and Snickers in half before adding the marshmallow. Opening up the chocolate allows the flavors from inside the candy bar to blend with the marshmallow, and cutting the chocolate in half makes the s’more easier to bite.

3. Cut the sweetness
If you’re not a fan of a sugar overload, there are several options to creating a less sweet s’more. Replacing the graham crackers with pretzel thins removes some of the sugar while adding a salty element. You could also try incorporating fruit flavors, either through fruit-filled chocolate like the raspberry Godiva bars or with actual pieces of sliced fruit.

4. Be patient
The perfect marshmallow is golden brown on the outside and completely melted on the inside. Roasting such a marshmallow takes time, as you have to be careful not to set it on fire or give up before it’s completely melted.

Once the marshmallow is roasted to perfection, let it rest on top of the chocolate before squishing it together. The heat from the marshmallow will melt the chocolate, creating a soft and creamy blend of sugary goodness that doesn’t need to melt in your mouth, because it’s already there.
