Best of the Best

Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Caramel Squares

Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Caramel Squares are so decadent and luxurious. They feel like they should cost $100. Luckily, they don’t—they’re very affordable and come in a big bag. These chocolate squares are great on their own, but when added to a s’more, they’re transcendent. The melty caramel and rich chocolate with the marshmallow and graham crackers is pure perfection. Plus, these are exactly the right size to fit on a s’more. It feels like they were destined for s’mores greatness from the start!

Theo Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Chocolate Bar

In my opinion, if you’re going for dark chocolate, you need to go salty. Theo Dark Chocolate agrees! This Dark Chocolate Sea Salt bar is definitely the best chocolate bar for s’mores if you’re a dark chocolate lover. The flavor is deep without being bitter. There’s a perfect amount of salt. This is what you should reach for if you want to make a more mature version of a classic s’more. Not that the original isn’t great, but sometimes you just want to feel like an adult.

Best Milk Runner-Up

Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar

The moment you pull out a Hershey’s Milk Chocolate bar, everyone suddenly becomes British. They will say things like, “I hate American chocolates,” and, “Ugh, it’s just so sweet.” Please drop the act, choco-traitors. Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bars are delicious. And more importantly, they are definitely one of the best chocolate bars for s’mores. No other milk chocolate bar we tried had a better melt factor, breakability, or shape. Hershey’s is a classic for a reason, people!
