Toasting the Coconut
This recipe does require one quick at-home component that you’ll need to do before your trip.
Toasting coconut is very simple and will only take a few minutes in a pan over medium heat with frequent stirring.
Once toasted, it will be a beautiful golden brown color. Let it cool and store it in an airtight container with the rest of your food for camping.
I love using these small reusable bags for storing the coconut!
The order that you build these s’mores is important so everything sticks together well!
You want to do: graham cracker, chocolate, toasted coconut, THEN the toasted marshmallow and top graham cracker.
With this order, the sticky marshmallow will hold all the toasted coconut in place!
Toasted Coconut S’mores
- 1 pack of graham crackers
- 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (about 1 Tbsp per S’more)
- 4 marshmallows
- 1 milk chocolate & almonds chocolate bar
At Home Prep:
- Toast the coconut: Heat a pan over medium heat. Add in the shredded coconut.
- Mix frequently until the coconut starts to turn golden. It will burn very quickly so make sure you’re mixing frequently and remove it from the heat as soon as it turns a slight golden color.
- Transfer it to a bowl and let it cool completely. Store in an air-tight container and pack it with the rest of the ingredients.
At Camp Directions:
- The layering order is important for this s’mores recipe: start with a graham cracker, then layer a piece of the almond chocolate, and lastly stack about 1 Tbsp of the toasted coconut on top of the chocolate.
- Use a stick or marshmallow skewer to toast a marshmallow over the fire until it’s golden brown.
- Layer the marshmallow over the coconut stack and use the top graham cracker to smoosh the marshmallow down and remove it from the stick. Enjoy immediately!
I hope you love this S’mores recipe. This is one of my all-time favorites!
The addition of the toasted coconut and almond chocolate really make these s’mores taste like some sort of fancy camp dessert.
