DIY S’MORES DESSERT PLATTER
I am the daughter of a chef. I grew up loving the artistic nature of food. As a little girl, I have wonderful memories of helping my dad prepare trays for parties. Now I love sharing these moments with my boys. Food platters and boards are easy to make, beautiful, and delicious. They really bring everyone together for fellowship and laughter. My boys and I love finding new ways to create easy yet absolutely gorgeous platters and boards.
These platters are a fun way to get the whole family involved in the design. You will love them on a low-key night in, to be a show-stopper for entertaining guests or fun to take to an event. In this post, I am going to show you how to create this easy and delicious s’mores dessert platter from start to finish.
How To Make a S’mores Dessert Platter in 6 Easy Steps
Step 1 – Get a HUGE platter or tray.
I used a stoneware tray with sides for my s’mores platter because kids will be involved in both the prep and the eating. Having sides on your platter is an easy way to be sure nothing falls out.

Step 2 – Get three small bowls or square containers and place them on your dessert platter
These small bowls are for any ingredient that is liquid or likely to spill all over your board like sprinkles.
I filled my bowls with chocolate syrup, caramel sauce and natural-dye sprinkles.
Step 3 – Add three kinds of vessels to hold the s’mores and place marshmallows in the middle of your platter.
I used honey graham crackers, cinnamon graham crackers and gluten free pretzel thins We use campfire marshmallows because they do NOT contain food dye like some other brands do.
Step 4 – Add the fruit.
You can use any fruit you like. I used blackberries and strawberries ( I meant to have this picture just be fruit but my son was helping and was excited to add the chocolate so he snuck some in there, can you blame him?)
Step 5 – Add your chocolate.
This is my favorite part of making a s’mores dessert platter – use your imagination and have fun with it! Pick out things with different colors, shapes and textures. I used mini regular and white chocolate peanut butter cups, chocolate pistachio bark, white chocolate, Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate squares.
Step 6 – Garnish with some mint.
You are done and ready for an epic night of backyard fun! I would love to see what you create!
