  • 4 Milky Way mini candy bars, regular or dark chocolate
  • 1 graham cracker, broken in half
  • 1 marshmallow

Distribute the Milky Way Minis evenly on one of the graham cracker halves and melt any way you prefer — oven, stovetop or over a fire. Separately, roast the marshmallow. When the candy bar pieces have softened on the graham cracker, remove from heat, add roasted marshmallow and top with remaining graham cracker half.


You can make this s’more with a graham cracker-size piece of a standard Milky Way bar. I prefer the minis because they are easier to spread evenly over the graham cracker, and I like mixing the light and dark varieties in the same s’more. But the essential flavor can be achieved either way. If you don’t want quite so much nougat, you can use two Milky Way minis and fill in the rest of the graham cracker with regular chocolate bar pieces.
