Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Pour into bowl of a food processor.

Step 3

Add butter and pulse until it forms a fine, sandy mixture with no pieces of butter larger than a big pea.

Step 4

Return the mixture to the mixing bowl and add the buttermilk and vanilla and stir dough with a fork until it comes together into a shaggy, moist ball.

Step 5

Add in mini marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate chips and knead in until well distributed.

Note: Dough will become quite dry with all the mix-ins. Add an additional tablespoon of buttermilk if the dough is too crumbly, but do not make the dough too wet or sticky; it just needs to hold together.

Step 6

Divide dough into two pieces and shape each into a disc about 1/2 inch thick. Cut each disc into quarters and arrange on prepared baking sheet.

Step 7

Bake for 16-20 minutes, until scones are set. Marshmallows will be browned and toasty. Allow to cool slightly before serving.


No special items needed.

Editorial Notes

The ingredient tips, suggestions, variations, facts, questions and answers below are not edits to the original author's recipe. They are not meant to imply any change would improve the recipe. They're offered for convenience, alternative ideas, and points of interest. If you have any comments about them, please post in the Help & Ideas forum.

  • When selecting butter, choose a block of butter that is cold and firm.
  • For the best flavor, use high-quality chocolate baking chips.

  • Replace the butter with coconut oil for a dairy-free option. Coconut oil has a high-fat content and can be used as a substitute for butter in baking. It will also add a subtle coconut flavor to the scones.
  • Replace the buttermilk with almond milk for a lactose-free option. Almond milk is a great substitute for dairy milk due to its high-fat content and creamy texture. It will also add a nutty flavor to the scones.

Chocolate Chip Scones Replace the graham crackers and mini marshmallows with 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Vanilla Ice Cream - A cool and creamy accompaniment to the warm and toasty s'more scones. The sweetness of the ice cream will balance out the savory flavors of the scones, creating an indulgent and delicious dessert.

Strawberry Coulis: A sweet and tangy strawberry sauce that will be the perfect complement to the ice cream and scones. The sauce will add a pop of color to the plate, and its sweet and tart flavor will provide a contrast to the creamy ice cream and savory scones. It will make for an unforgettable dessert.


Q: How do I know when the scones are done?

A: When the scones are done, they should be set and the marshmallows should be browned and toasty. To check for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center of one of the scones. If it comes out clean, the scones are done.

Q: How do I store leftover scones?

A: Leftover scones should be stored in an airtight container and kept in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To reheat, place on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F for 5-7 minutes.

Fun facts:

The s'more is an iconic American treat that was first popularized in the 1920s and 1930s. The name "s'more" is a contraction of the phrase "some more," as people often wanted "some more" of them after tasting them.

The s'more was popularized in a 1927 publication of the Girl Scouts of America, where it was called a "campsite sandwich" and was made with two graham crackers, a piece of chocolate, and a toasted marshmallow. It has since become a summertime staple for campers and backyard gatherings.
