One of the activities my family looks forward to the most every summer is going camping and making s’mores while sitting around the campfire. This year, we have been having one of the hottest and driest summers ever, making it necessary to enforce a campfire ban. Because we couldn’t carry on our tradition of making s’mores over a bonfire this summer, my teenage kids decided that wouldn’t stop them from enjoying their favorite campfire treat and came up with the idea of making S’mores Frozen Yogurt Sandwiches instead.
We used the Graham Cracker S’mores Frozen Yogurt Recipe found in the Endless Summer Recipe Book by Zoku which features 54 ice cream and frozen dessert recipes, all of which I want to devour because they look so yummy. The base is made with nonfat greek yogurt and marshmallow creme which is filled with bits of graham crackers, mini marshmallows and chocolate chips. We smooshed the frozen yogurt between two graham crackers and then dipped the sandwiches into melted chocolate for s’more yummy goodness.

We made a couple of adjustments to the recipe. First, we substituted the homemade marshmallow sauce that the recipe calls for with Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme because my kids were not to keen on making it from scratch. The next time, I will make a batch ahead of time for them because it is way more healthier. If you prefer homemade, the recipe for homemade marshmallow creme sauce can be found in the Endless Summer Recipe Book. Secondly, we doubled the amount of stir-ins because when it comes to chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers, you can never have too much of a good thing. The recipe posted below reflects our changes.
We made the S’mores Frozen Yogurt using a Zoku Ice Cream Maker, but you can also make this recipe using any ice cream maker. Just follow the instruction manual for the model you own. This recipe makes 1 quart of frozen yogurt, enough for 12 frozen yogurt sandwiches or 6 small bowls of frozen yogurt.
How To Make S’mores Frozen Yogurt In A Zoku Ice Cream Bowl
Freeze your Zoku Ice Cream Maker for at least 12 hours before you get started. It is best to start with chilled ingredients because if the ingredients are warm, it will take longer for the ice cream to freeze. It takes about 10 minutes to reach a soft serve consistency and 15 to 20 minutes for a firmer texture.
In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk the yogurt, marshmallow creme, vanilla and kosher salt together for 2 or 3 minutes, until the mixture is smooth and there are no lumps remaining. Gently stir in the mini marshmallows, chopped graham crackers and chocolate chips.
Pour 5 ounces of the mixture into each Zoku Ice Cream Maker. If you are not making the whole batch at once, you may want to leave out adding all the graham crackers to the mixture because they may get soggy. Instead, add the graham crackers to the frozen yogurt mixture as you make it.
It will begin to freeze instantly. Immediately start scraping the sides of the bowl with the Zoku plastic spoon, stirring the frozen bits into the center of the bowl. Continue scraping and stirring for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the frozen yogurt has firmed up enough to hold its shape for sandwiching between two graham crackers.
At this point, you can either grab a spoon and dig in if the temptation to devour this yummy frozen yogurt is too much to handle, or you can make yourself some S’mores Frozen Yogurt Sandwiches.
How To Make S’mores Frozen Yogurt Sandwiches
Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper and place 12 graham crackers on top. Divide the frozen yogurt evenly between all the graham crackers. Cover the tops with 12 additional graham crackers. I find it easier to work with only a couple at a time because they melt pretty fast. Smooth the sides of the sandwiches with a spatula.
Place in the freezer for at least 2 hours. Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a glass bowl over a double boiler or in the microwave. Dip each sandwich halfway into the melted chocolate. Let it drip for a few seconds and place back on the waxed paper. Repeat for the remaining sandwiches. Leave the other half of the sandwich plain so you can hold onto the sandwich without getting chocolate all over your hands. Dig in and enjoy!
Store the extras in the freezer in a covered container for up to 2 weeks.

My kids and I can’t wait to start trying the other 54 ice cream and frozen dessert recipes found in the Endless Summer Recipe Book. All the recipes included in the book can be made in any ice cream machine, so even if you don’t own a Zoku Ice Cream Maker, you can still make all of the yummy treats found in the recipe book using whatever ice cream machine you own. If you already own a Zoku Ice Cream Maker, I highly recommend picking up a copy of the Endless Summer Recipe Book to go along with it.
All of the recipes included in the book use real ingredients. There are no artificial colors, preservatives or weird ingredients that you can’t pronounce like those found in most of the frozen treats sold in stores, even the healthier ones.
You will find recipes for sauces and toppings, ice cream, dairy free ice cream, frozen yogurt, gelato, sorbert, granita, a la mode desserts and even homemade waffle cones. A few of the recipes from the book I can’t wait to try are:
