A simple recipe for s’mores pies has set mouths watering across social media – and they’re remarkably easy to make.
All that’s needed are three ingredients – ready-rolled pie crusts, mini marshmallows and a block of milk chocolate – which are all widely available in leading Australian supermarkets such as Coles and Woolworths.
Each crust should be filled with a handful of chocolate, topped with a generous scoop of marshmallows and baked in an air fryer for roughly five minutes until the marshmallow has caramelised into a golden brown.

These simple s’mores pies have set mouths watering across social media – and they’re remarkably easy to make
Budget-friendly air fryers are sold in Kmart for as little as $49.
Home cooks have been rushing to make the pies since a woman, believed to live in the US, shared the recipe in a Facebook cookery group on Thursday morning.
‘S’mores without the mess. So easy,’ she wrote in the caption.
The woman said the pies turned out ‘just right’ after being baked for four minutes at 375 degrees Celsius.

Pictures of the pies, which have racked up 1,000 ‘likes’ since they were uploaded online, have drawn dozens of delighted responses.
‘Cute idea!’ one woman replied.
‘I love these so easy and so good,’ added a second, while a third wrote: ‘Where is that YUM button at?’
Others said they planned to buy an air fryer just to make them.
The recipe is the latest dessert inspired by s’mores – a sweet treat popular in the US made from toasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between two digestive biscuits – to catch attention on social media.

In July, Olivia Nash showed amateur bakers how to make biscuits stuffed with marshmallows and white and dark chocolate.
The chef from Dublin, Ireland, uses 100 grams of brown sugar mixed with 125 grams of unsalted butter, 225 grams of self-raising flour, 200 grams of chocolate, one egg and a tablespoon of vanilla extract.
Chocolate squares and marshmallow are then sandwiched between the dough which is baked for 10 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.
Photos of the cookies have been reposted on social media pages around the world, with many hailing them ‘heavenly’ and marvelling at the simplicity of the recipe.

‘Are they as good as they look and as easy to bake as it reads?!’ one woman asked.
A second said she saved the recipe for the next time she can find marshmallows in the supermarket, while a third declared: ‘Oh my Jesus lord, I need these.’
Others said the cookies were the best thing posted online in 2020.
