Few things scream summer quite like a s’more. But, between losing your marshmallow to the fire and getting your chocolate to evenly melt, they can be a pain to get just right.

You’ll get the perfect mix of graham cracker, marshmallow and chocolate with every bite … no firepit required.
For extra smoked flavor, take your fruit to the flame. This tart brings together a mouthwatering cream cheese spread, grilled fruit (peaches, plums or even pineapple all work well), and a snappy phyllo crust.
