Owl S’mores – Fun Food Recipe Idea

Owl S'mores Recipe by LivingLocurto.com

I am a BIG owl lover! Recently I designed a fun outdoor Owl Party Printable Collection and came up with these cute Owl S’mores for party treats. One of my most favorite creations yet!

Owl S'mores Recipe by Amy Locurto at LivingLocurto.com - Such an Easy Fun Food Idea!

Serve these easy s’mores for a fall party, Halloween or enjoy as an after school snack. Kids love them and they make adorable party favors too.

What I love about these Owl S’mores is you can make one or make a bunch and they still have such a cute factor. Such a fun food idea!

I am so thrilled to see these pop up all over the internet after coming up with idea. I even wrote a post featuring all of the adorable Owl S’mores in internet land!

How to Make Owl S’mores

Yellow Wilton Candy MeltsBrachs Candy CornChocolate ChipsGraham CrackersMarshamallows


  1. Cut one marshmallow in half and place both pieces on a large graham cracker (2 stuck together).
  2. Put a candy melt on top of the marshmallows.
  3. Heat in the microwave for about 2-5 seconds, just enough to make the marshmallows puff up, but not get too hot. (Time depends on your microwave – make sure to do a few test runs.)
  4. Take out of microwave and add a chocolate chip on the yellow candy melt and the candy corn beak while the marshmallows and candy are still warm. Everything should stick together nicely.
  5. Let cool and serve! You can make these the night before a party and everything is still very tasty.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Look at how cute these Owl S’mores turned out at my Owl Birthday Party!

  1. Could these be baked instead of microwaved? I wonder if that would help with the candy melting and the marshmallows not getting puffy as fast.

  2. I cut the marshmallows into thirds (dipping your knife into flour before each cut helps stop sticking) Put the sticky side up so the yellow wafer will stick to it and not shift when you nuke it. Put the yellow wafer flat side up so the choc chip will not slide. I put the choc chip on right away and nuked them individually on a plate at med heat (level 5 on my microwave) for 15 seconds. The marshmallows puff up but not ridiculously. When you take it out, push down on the choc chip a bit so it will stick into the yellow wafer. Remember, the yellow wafer will keep melting after you take it out so you can push it down a bit for the next couple of minutes while the yellow wafer is still warm.
    And keep your hands off the melted marshmallow or you end up with a big mess because it sticks to your hands.

  3. cute, but time is NOT correct…9 sec for the marshmallows then I did the candy melts with a choc chip on top of it for 40 sec then topped the warm marshmallow.

  4. Melissa says:

    I know you asked a while back, but in case you haven’t found out. . . They are little circle candies that melt very easily. I think it could be white chocolate and it comes in lots of colors. They’re great for making candies. You can buy them at any craft store (Joann, Hobby Lobby, Michaels, etc). They also sell them at my local Walmart in the craft section.

  5. I am having trouble with the candy melts not melting enough for the choc. chips

    • I had trouble with the candy melts too. I nuked them in the microwave for about 1 minute (6 pieces) then carefully spooned them for the eyes.

  6. very cute! I love owls, too!

  10. So excited to make these cute owl s'mores created by @livinglocurto for tomorrow's camping play date! http://t.co/THbl6pHk

  11. Owl Smores: http://t.co/dspIAsgT these could be deadly

  12. HELP! So excited about making these, but what’s a candy melt?! I feel really silly not knowing this–could you give an ex of a brand name?

  13. We just made these but had some issues so if anyone one else has problems here is what we did. Our marshmallows were expanding too much, our candy melt was not melting and thus the chocolate chips wouldn’t stay. Sooo, I melted the candy wafers and put them into a squeeze bottle. I cut the marshmallows into thirds and microwaved for 9 seconds. I squeezed on big circles of melted chocolate and then added our chocolate chip and candy corn. I wonder if we have a weak microwave…
    At any rate, fantastic idea and turned out really cute! Thanks for sharing!!

    Thank you so much for such an adorable treat. My daughter is an owl fan, and will be enthralled!

  21. I have been waiting and waiting for the right occassion to make these adorable owls! I bought my ingredients and did a dry run tonight before having to send them to school next week with my daughter.

    My question is how do you manage to get the marshmellows to begin to melt without one becoming much larger than the other? I tried everything I could think of and still they were mismatched! It’s the perfectionist in me I guess but seems as if at least the eyes should be sort of close to the same size.


  22. Which of these should I make for a Halloween party? http://t.co/dAdpyfQs or http://t.co/Vlq9i3HB

  23. So cute Amy! I featured these on Fun Family Crafts :) http://funfamilycrafts.com/owl-smores/

  39. Hi Amy,

    I will be featuring your owl smores tomorrow on my blog. What a cute idea. Love it! Thanks for sharing. They go great with my new Thanksgiving Owl Free Printables.

  40. Those are so cute..Can’t wait to make them 😉

  41. Thanks for the great idea. I just signed up for your blog. I made these this weekend for the cheer-leading squad’s half-time treat. What a hit! Love your site!

  42. What is a yellow candy melt and where can one get them?

  43. I just made these ridiculously cute Owl Smores http://t.co/Rg29jIt

  44. @Zakary These are cute, just don't know if you can make them in class–unless you have a toaster oven. http://bit.ly/cWbGLY

  45. @KarenWehr Very Cute! http://www.livinglocurto.com/2010/09/owl-smores We take finals treats to the ASU girls & I'm bringing these!

  46. I made these last night with my daughter, but I couldn’t find candy melts so we used gummi-savers. They worked like a charm, the chocolate chip fit in the center of the candy, if you set it upside-down. I had to microwave them longer, like 10 seconds, to get everything to stick together and I had to put them together BEFORE I put them in the microwave. If I didn’t all the candy fell off. We made them for a bake sale at her school. They are super cute, and a really great idea. Thanks, I’m glad I found your site.

  47. Very creative idea! Thank you for posting the recipe. Always love the things you come up with!! I had shared this with my FB fans.

  48. Where I can find yellow candy melts? I can’t find them at the store!

  49. Hey!! I love how simple and cute these owls look!! Great!

  61. Adorable and INGENIOUS!

  62. Ridiculously adorable! I posted a link on my Edible Crafts blog (ediblecrafts.craftgossip.com)

  63. OMG. i love this so flippin much. we make treats for the collegiate chapter of my college sorority, chi omega every year before finals and this would be amazing…the owl is our symbol!! thanks for the simple idea )

  64. THAT IS PRECIOUS! I will definitely be using this idea and shared it on my FB page – thanks for the creative genius!

  65. Love it! This will be featured in the candy corn categorically crafting on somedaycrafts.blogspot.com on the 30th

  66. Can someone explain what a candy melt is, I’m not sure I’ve seen this candy before? thanks

  67. These are stinkin adorable. I love this and I’m going to have to make these for me…er I mean the kids.

  68. Cutest.thing.ever! EVAH!!

  69. Adorable! I love the owls. I could see doing a black (or, really, brown) cat with chocolate graham crackers and green candy melts. Not sure what to use for the nose though…maybe cut a strawberry Starburst into a triangle?

  70. Saw these owl smores on Pizzazzerie and had to pop over and tell you how cute I thought they are. Love them.

  71. SO CUTE!!! I cant wait to make and take them to a fall party!

  72. These are super cute! One question, you didn’t specify on the marshmallow’s. Do you use the mini ones or the regular size one?

  73. I’ve got an owl crazy girl soon turning 11 — she will die when I show her this.

  74. Oh my word Amy! These are adorable!!!

  75. Wow! These are adorable!!!

  76. This is so cute, and totally brings a smile to my face. They would be darling additions to any party, thanks for sharing! ?

  77. Linda Stout says:

    I love all of your ideas and free printables. I have used many of both and passed them along to friends. Just wanted to tell you that your website is wonderful! Thank you so much for helping make me a super crafty mom!

  78. Kill. Me. Now. These are beyond adorable. (I came over from Remodeling This Life.)

  79. Adorable! What a creative idea.

  80. soo adorable… love them!

  81. Who came up with the perfect fall treat ever? Whoo-whoo.

    (I’m headed to Walmart this instant for the ingredients….you know, because it’s a fall -like 95 degrees in Plano today))

  82. Ummmm—that’s like SUPER ADORABLE!!!!!!!!!!

  83. Love this idea!!! I’m rounding up ideas and getting geared up for our “Merry Not Scary!” Costume party for the kiddos this year…these would be a perfect treat!

  84. Oh my. Those are ridiculously cute. I have to make them! I’ll be linking as well.

  85. i wasn’t sure what to expect when i saw the title but your owl smore made me laugh out loud. he just looks so startled! very cute :)

  86. Love it! Super Cute!!

  87. What a super sweet idea ~ I love it!!

  88. Adorable! We’re definitely going to use that idea for a fall party … thanks for sharing!

  89. These are adorable – and something I haven’t seen before. I wonder if I could do something similar with the graham cracker, but then add banana slices, then small pineapple or nectarine circles topped with raisins for the eyes. I’d keep the candy corn though – 1 piece isn’t the end of the world!

    In my daughter’s class, for class celebrations they are only allowed one sweet treat, and the rest of the party snacks need to be healthy – I’d love some ideas for healthy Halloween party treats!

  90. These are so cute!!!!! I love smores & this would make them so much cuter :)

  91. How cute, Amy! AND amazingly simple! You come up with the most creative things :-)

    Tammy ~@~

  92. Ridiculously cute!!!! Can’t wait to try these with my kids. Thanks & I am super excited to see the rest of this party!

  93. That little owl is too cute to eat!

  94. so awesome, I will make these for sure :)
