Pie Iron S’mores Sandwiches

Many people start off making desserts in their pie irons, using bread and canned pie filling. This did not appeal to us as our kid is not a fan of pie. However he loves chocolate and he loves marshmallows and he loves cinnamon bread so one night, instead of traditional s’mores, we threw this together. It was a huge success and we make our pie iron s’mores sandwiches on almost every camping trip now. It also allows for easy modification if you have different ingredients you’d like to try.

Who doesn’t love food cooked over a campfire? Actually we know a lot of people who don’t and we just have to feel sorry for them. Because we love to cook over a campfire, especially in a pie iron. These are sometimes called camp cookers, pudgy pies, or even hobo pies, but we use the term pie iron. Whatever you choose to call it, know that these trusty tools make extremely delicious food cooked over the campfire.

What we love about Pie Iron S’mores Sandwiches:

  • They are quick, easy, and fun
  • We can customize them to everyone’s tastes
  • These are slightly less sticky than traditional s’mores

The Ingredients:

  • Butter
  • Cinnamon bread
  • Nutella
  • Miniature Marshmallows

  2. Butter the insides of your pie irons.
  3. Spread one side of each slice of bread with Nutella.
  4. Insert one half of the bread, Nutella side up, in your pie irons.
  5. Place a handful of miniature marshmallows on top of the Nutella.
  6. Place other slice of bread, Nutella side down, on top of the marshmallows.

  1. Close pie iron carefully and place over campfire.
  2. Cook over fire, flipping occasionally, until bread is toasted and marshmallows have melted. Time needed will depend on how hot your fire is.

Equipment needed:

  • Pie iron(s): We have a double pie iron from Rome, a double from Field & Stream, two singles from Field & Stream, and two single Coghlan’s Camp Cookers. Pie irons also come in circles and waffle versions. We recommend a square or rectangle for this recipe.
  • Cutting board and knife: You will want to have a clean surface to work with, as well as knives for spreading ingredients. We also prefer to cut our s’mores sandwiches into pieces for eating.
  • Heat resistant gloves: If you are going to be working around a fire, at some point you will probably get burned. These gloves can help prevent that.
