Air fryer s'mores method 

The method to make air fryer s'mores is super easy. We stuck to the temperature and timings set out in the original Instagram recipe by

We used the Cosori Pro LE Air Fryer L501 to make our s'mores. You won't find a preset for making these, so we bumped up the default temperature from 338ºF/170ºC to 356ºF/180ºC and reduced the cooking time from 25 minutes to five minutes.

If you prefer the mallow to be less brown, then reduce the cooking duration by 30 seconds.

Step 1: Place one biscuit with one mallow on top into the drawer of your air fryer.

Step 2: Set the air fryer temperature to 356ºF/180ºC and the time to 5 minutes. Close the drawer and wait until the time is up.

Step 3: Open the drawer. Gently press one square of chocolate into the centre of the mallow. Cook at 356ºF/180ºC for a further minute.

Step 4: Remove the biscuit with melted mallow and chocolate from the air fryer with a silicone spatula. Place the second biscuit on top and gently sandwich together.

Air fryer s'mores recipe verdict

We're always on the lookout for treats and snacks to make in our air fryer, and this air fryer s'mores recipe certainly hit the spot.

The recipe from Instagram was super easy to follow, and with just three ingredients and no need for any measuring, you really can't go wrong.

Although we made only one s'more to try out the recipe, the size of your air fryer is likely to enable you to make more – perhaps as many as half a dozen – so just adjust your ingredients accordingly.

We feel that the recipe is better suited to the basket style of air fryer, owing to the size and time it takes to make.

If you prefer your mallows gooey but not browned, then reduce the cooking time by 30 seconds.

Take care when removing the s'mores from the air fryer – despite being cooked for such a sort time, the high temperature will mean that both biscuit and mallow will be hot, so ensure you use silicone utensils to the s'more out of the basket.

We had tried making s'mores in the microwave many years ago, but the mallow didn't puff up like a pillow, nor did it get that camp-fire tinge. However, in the air fryer we've seen success and will definitely be making these air fryer s'mores as a go-to treat more often.
