Give Me S’more!
Ever since I made this incredible S’mores Mississippi Mud Pie, I’ve been trying to come up with many different ways to enjoy this classic campfire treat. This S’mores French Toast is just one of the many delicious recipes I’ve developed with the holy trinity of chocolate, graham crackers and marshmallows!
Just one bite of this amazing french toast will have you imagining you’re a kid again, sitting in-front of a campfire surrounded by friends and family. Graham crackers and chocolate in one hand and a stick of roasting marshmallows in the other.
But no campfire is needed to enjoy this irresistible breakfast treat!
Breakfast or Dessert?
With the graham cracker crusted french toast, milk chocolate bar and toasted marshmallow filling and topping, and the chocolate syrup drizzle — I would consider this more of a dessert than breakfast.
But you could totally enjoy it for breakfast too, I mean who said you can’t have breakfast for dessert? Other than, you know, your parents or super healthy folks. Who cares what they say, though, I’M telling you to go for it!
Aren’t I such a good influence?
The Best Type Of Bread To Use
I usually use Texas Toast in my french toast recipes, but since this is a sandwiched french toast, I thought brioche bread would fit better. I originally used french bread for this recipe, but the thick slices of brioche are far better suited for a sandwiched french toast recipe!
You can use any type of bread you like – challah, croissants, sandwich bread etc. You can even use whole wheat bread instead of white bread to make yourself believe this is a healthy breakfast.
Best Type of Graham Crackers, Chocolate and Marshmallows to Use For This French Toast
Graham Crackers: Plain graham crackers are pretty...well, plain. For the best flavour, I prefer to use honey graham crackers.
Chocolate: Milk chocolate is always the way to go when it comes to s’mores! Make sure to use chocolate bars, not chocolate chips.
Marshmallows: It’s best to use large marshmallows so you can cut them in half and stick them onto the chocolate. Mini marshmallows will easily fall out.
How to Make Graham Cracker French Toast
Not only did I update the photos for this recipe, I updated the recipe itself. More eggs, less milk, a bit more sugar and cinnamon. Just all around more delicious than the older recipe.
The process to make this french toast is just like any regular french toast recipe. Start by whisking together the eggs, milk, cream, salt, sugars, vanilla, cinnamon and a bit of nutmeg in the same shallow baking dish you’re dipping your bread in.
Then place your slices of bread, one at a time in the mixture and immediately turn the slice over to coat the next side. Now since this is S’mores flavoured, we’re gonna completely coat the dipped bread in some graham cracker crumbs. Not only does this add flavour to the french toast, but it adds an amazing crunchy texture!
Once your bread is coated, place in a hot and buttered skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until crispy and golden. Cook 2 slices at a time, and when you flip them, layer some pieces of milk chocolate and marshmallows on top.
I cut the marshmallows in half and placed them sticky side down, just so everything can hold together. While the other side of the french toast is cooking, the marshmallows and chocolate will begin to melt. Once the sides are done cooking, sandwich the plain half on top of the chocolate and marshmallows slice and press down so the filling can get even more melty and delicious!
You can enjoy the french toast as it is and skip the topping, but I just HAD to top them with some more yummy treats! Start with a generous drizzle of chocolate sauce, along with crushed graham crackers, chocolate chips and mini marshmallows.
Since I had leftover meringue from another recipe I was making, I piped a swirl onto the french toast. Toasted it with my trusty kitchen torch, then topped it with a chocolate and graham cracker square.

Graham Cracker French Toast:
- 2 cups (170g) graham cracker crumbs + more if needed
- 5 large eggs, beaten
- ½ cup (120ml) whole milk
- ½ cup (120ml) heavy cream
- 2 Tbsp (25g) granulated sugar
- 2 Tbsp (28g) brown sugar, packed
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- ⅛ tsp ground nutmeg
- Pinch of salt
- 8 - 10 slices bread (such as Texas toast, challah, French or any bread of your choice)
- Butter, for greasing the pan
- 5-6 Milk chocolate bars
- 15 Large marshmallows, cut in half
- Chocolate sauce
- Crushed graham crackers
- Chocolate chips
- Mini marshmallows
- Chocolate Squares
- Preheat a griddle or a skillet over medium-low heat.
- Pour the graham cracker crumbs into a shallow dish. Set aside.
- In a separate shallow dish, add eggs, milk, salt, sugar, vanilla extract and cinnamon (if using) and whisk until combined and smooth.
- Use about a tablespoon of butter to grease the pan. Place 2 bread slices into the egg mixture, then flip it over to coat both sides. Repeat by pressing the dipped bread into the Graham cracker crumbs, flipping to coat both sides.
- Transfer 2 slices to pan and cook until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Flip bread and cook on the other side for another 1 minute.
- Place chocolate bar pieces onto one slice and place marshmallows cut side down. Allow french toast to cook for another 1-2 minutes, then flip the plain french toast onto the slice with the marshmallow and chocolate. Transfer to a serving plate. Repeat with remaining slices, re-greasing the pan as necessary.
- Serve warm with a drizzle of chocolate sauce, toasted marshmallows and chocolate bar pieces. Enjoy!
- Topping: I only topped my french toast with meringue because I had some leftover. I assume you wouldn’t want to go through the trouble of making it from scratch, so you can top it with whipped cream instead.
