Cooking is a great fun activity that I love to do with my daughters. With lots of school holidays coming up, and weeks of ways to entertain them needed, I love to use my air fryer for some tasty snacks. These air fryer smores take just a few minutes to make and they’re a great fun and frugal snack.

You can jazz them up with fancy biscuits, and deluxe milk chocolate bars, or you can keep it super simple and cheap with basic ingredients from the supermarket.

These air fryer smores are super simple to prepare and take just 1 minute to get ready. It’s so easy to make these that my eldest can prepare them by herself and just get me to help with removing them from the hot air fryer basket.

I love making affordable snacks with my daughters, and these are great fun too. Tasty, melty chocolate and gooey marshmallows work so well with digestive biscuits. If you’re looking for some chocolate inspiration or biscuit ideas then be sure to look below for those ideas.

You can transform these very basic ingredients into a gooey delicious melty chocolate treat. You don’t need to pre-heat the air fryer or use any cooking equipment. I personally like to line the air fryer basket with baking paper, as it’s just easier for serving these up, but you can place onto the bottom of the air fryer tray directly too.

I make these in my Ninja Foodi dual air fryer, which has two air fryer baskets, but you can use any air fryer. Just be aware that the timings may be a little different.

Ingredients for air fryer smores:

Makes 4

8 digestive biscuits

4 large marshmallows or 12 smaller ones – large marshmallows work best for smores

4 large squares of chocolate or 12 chocolate buttons

Method for making s’mores in the air fryer:

Line your air fryer basket with baking paper if you want to.

Place down 4 digestive biscuits leaving a little space between each one.

Place one square of chocolate or 3 chocolate buttons on top of each biscuit.

Add one large marshmallow or 3 smaller ones. Smaller marshmallows are more likely to blow around in the air fryer, so I recommend using large ones if you can.

Air fry at 200C (390F approx) for 3 minutes.

If your marshmallows have not started to brown on the top then cook for another 30-45 seconds and check again.

Remove from the air fryer, add a second digestive biscuit on the top of the marshmallow and then you’ve made a smore.

Serve immediately, although they will be hot!

These are perfect to eat alone, and are a delicious snack. One per person is a great treat after a family BBQ or during a movie night. Sometimes we have these alongside our favourite movie mix.

What biscuits to use for s’mores?

We love to use plain digestive biscuits. They’re inexpensive, last well in an airtight container once opened.

Other biscuits that work well for smores are Bahlsen choco leibniz biscuits, graham crackers (I find them in a local World Food store), rich tea, or even cookies.

What’s the best chocolate to use for smores?

I have been using the Lindt chocolate bars, as they have large squares. One square per store is great. You could just as easily use the most basic chocolate from UK supermarkets. There is no need to splash out, but I love the Lindt Excellence with a touch of sea salt. This brings a lovely hit of flavour, and works so well with the gooey marshmallows and digestive biscuits.

Want to make air fryer smores with cookies?

You can use cookies to make smores. You can either make your own air fryer cookies or you can use shop bought cookies, even the cheapest ones would work great for this recipe.

If you’re making your own cookies then cook them 2/3 of the way through, then add the chocolate and marshmallows. They’ll stay a little softer and won’t be overcooked and hard.

Can you use chocolate digestives for smores?

Absolutely, this would work great. Stick to the same cooking times, around 3 minutes at 200C (390F approx).

The chocolate already being on the digestives is a great way to save a tiny bit of time and effort. Cost wise it is similar to use basic chocolate or buy the cheapest chocolate digestives.

Something to note about air fryer recipes is that all air fryers have different sizes, depths and as such the cooking times can vary. All air fryer recipes on this website are intended as a guide, and not a guarantee that the timings will be perfect. Enjoy!
