We've paired two beloved comfort foods—loaded potatoes and s'mores—for a sweet campfire-style treat that can be enjoyed right at home.

  • Prep time 25 minutes
  • Total time 1 hour & 15 minutes
  • Portion size 8 servings



Position racks in top and bottom thirds of oven; preheat to 425°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. 

Scrub sweet potatoes; pat dry and halve lengthwise. Brush cut sides with olive oil. Arrange, cut side down, on prepared pan. Bake on bottom rack until centres are fork-tender, about 30 minutes. 

Mean­while, in small saucepan, whisk together water; cocoa powder; granulated sugar; and corn syrup or agave syrup over medium heat until bubbling. Remove from heat; whisk in bittersweet or semisweet chocolate and pinch salt until smooth. Let stand until thickened. 

Flip sweet potatoes cut side up. Using spoon, scoop out flesh from centres to make 1/2-inch deep well in each; discard. Sprinkle sweet potatoes with salt; top with mini marshmallows. Broil on top rack until marsh­mallows are lightly toasted, about 45 seconds. 

Transfer to plates; drizzle with chocolate sauce. Sprinkle with chopped toasted pecans; serve with graham crackers, if desired.
