The Driftless Foodie: Salty S’more Snack Bites

By Jessica Woodward

I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but after the last couple of years writing this column, after the dozens of recipes I’ve created for The Driftless Foodie, I think this might be my second ever dessert recipe I’ve shared with you all! So, buckle up, it’s a good one!

Those of you who know me well, know that I am not a baker. And I will be pretty upfront about that one when people ask what they can bring for supper. My response is always “dessert.” But, I do keep a few go-to dessert recipes in my back pocket for a rainy day, but anything super intricate – no thanks… I will be on quality control.

That being said, s’mores are probably my all-time favorite dessert. There is nothing I love more than an ooey gooey s’more by the campfire in a hoodie on a cool summer night. It warms me right up. I often craved them when I was pregnant, the neighbors on the farm always ran one over to me when they had a bonfire. Mmmm, am I the only one drooling!?

However, I know that some of you may not have the ability to make a campfire, and if you’re one of those people, this recipe is for you. No fire required! (This truly is a Jessie-approved dessert recipe)

Besides not needing any “fancy” equipment like a well-carved stick found only in your backyard, this no-bake dessert comes together with just four ingredients. Now, I know what you’re thinking… “s’mores only have three ingredients, what’s the fourth?!”

Now that’s a valid question, but the fourth ingredient, in my opinion, is nonnegotiable.

And that is flakey pyramid salt. It really takes this cool summer treat to the next level. I’m rather nerdy when it comes to the various types of salt, so make sure you can find the Morton’s Flakey salt – you can find it at the Oneota Co-op.

My son now is 16 months old, and I love getting him involved in the kitchen. You’ll often find him perched on the counter, ready to hand me the spatula, as I make his eggs in the morning. These Salty S’more Snack Bites were the perfect recipe to get him to help. It’s sweet and yummy, and it is cool to see him accomplish something in the kitchen – even at a young age! I encourage you to get the kiddos involved, too. You won’t regret it – make them do all the hard work.

We’ve made these several times by now and although I prefer them cold right out of the fridge, you can serve them at room temperature if you’re serving them for a party. Either way, it’s the best way to end the summer celebrations. Now get to work in the kitchen!

Salty S’more Snack Bites

Salty S’more Snack Bites


20 Graham Cracker 1/4s (5 whole crackers)

1 1/2 cups marshmallow fluff

1 bag of chocolate

Flakey pyramid salt


1. Break the grahams up into quarters

2. Add marshmallow fluff to one side of the cracker and add a top to make it into a sandwich. Align on a sheet pan until you have no more crackers.

3. Melt the bag of chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and microwave for another 15 seconds or until smooth. Do not overcook! This is super important. If you overcook it, it will become gritty.

4. Dunk the marshmallow sandwiches into the melted chocolate and put back on the sheet pan. Once you’re out of sandwiches, drizzle some chocolate over top and sprinkle with salt.

5. Put in the fridge for 30-45 minutes and enjoy!
