Deep fried smores originated as State Fair concoctions, but haven’t really been made at home … until now. In this recipe, we’ve adapted them into golden pouffy balls that melt in your mouth with gooey s’mores flavors on the inside.

How to make deep fried s’mores

There’s a bit of dedication required to make deep fried s’mores. We often sacrifice the first few balls to get the hang of it, and then the rest come along more easily. The first step is to take a square 8-inch pan and line with parchment paper. Then you can place graham crackers in the bottom.

The rest of the smores is a layering process with graham crackers, melted chocolate, chocolate chips and mini marshmallows. The melted chocolate acts as the glue to hold it all together:

Chill for ten minutes, and then cut them into about 36 inch-size squares. You may be wondering how square pieces become round balls, and the battering process that follows is the secret.

Using a simple pancake batter, either homemade in this recipe or using a packaged mix, dip the s’more pieces in one-by-one and fry them for about a minute in 400°F oil. Repeat the process until all the pieces have been deep fried.

Prep Time: 25 mins
Cook Time: 10 mins
Total Time: 35 mins
Servings: 36 servings




  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 6 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Frying & Serving

  • 1 quart vegetable oil, for frying
  • powdered sugar , optional for serving



  • Line an 8x8-inch pan with parchment paper. 
  • Arrange graham crackers to cover the bottom of the pan, breaking up sheets as needed to fit.
  • Place 1 cup of chocolate chips in a bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals until smooth, stirring in between.
  • Drizzle 1/3 of the melted chocolate onto the graham crackers, followed by the remaining chocolate chips, followed by 1/3 more melted chocolate, followed by the marshmallows, and finally the remaining melted chocolate.
  • Top with a layer of graham crackers according to the video, and place the pan in the refrigerator for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, make the batter.


  • In a medium saucepan or deep fryer, add vegetable oil and set temperature  to 425°F.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, oil and milk.  
  • In a separate bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Pour in the wet ingredients and whisk until smooth.


  • To get ready for frying, line a large plate with paper towel and set aside. Also get tongs and a slotted spoon.
  • Remove the s'mores from the fridge. Lift them out of the pan and onto a work surface using the parchment paper. 
  • Using a sharp knife, cut the s'mores into 6x6 grid to make 36 pieces. If any pieces break, use melted chocolate to glue them back together.
  • Drop a s’mores piece into the batter and using the tongs coat completely. Then lift the coated s'more out and let excess batter drip off.
  • Place the s'more into the hot oil, and fry for about 1 minute until it has puffed into a ball and turned golden brown. Remove to the prepared plate.
  • Repeat the battering, frying process for the remaining s'mores. (It may take a few to get the hang of it.)
  • Dust with optional powdered sugar. Serve warm and enjoy!


-Instead of making homemade batter, you can use dry pancake mix and add water according to the package directions.
-Keep the s'mores in the fridge until ready to fry, especially if the weather is warm.
