This S'mores Snack Board is a fun, kid-friendly snack board (or charcuterie board) when kids are part of the summer barbecues. The only prep is mixing the incredibly addicting s'mores cookie dough dip and arranging snacks on the board. It takes about 15 minutes to put together and will be a hit at any summer party!
Summer means time for fun snacks and barbecue food! I love making kid-friendly snack boards because of their simplicity.
And since we also loves s'mores, let's put the 2 together and make a s'mores snack board.
This board requires making this favorite caramel and chocolate s'mores cookie dough dip.
Keep it simple and serve with easy snacks that go great with chocolate and caramel.
It's fun to serve at summer barbecues, birthday parties, pool parties, or when your kids have a few friends over.
Adults will love it too, so don't save it just for the kids.
🧾 Shopping List
For this s'mores snack board, you’ll need to make the s'mores cookie dough dip and gets lots of fun snacks, like pretzels, graham crackers, cookies, ande chocolate.
Here is what I used:
- regular graham crackers
- honey graham crackers
- chocolate teddy grahams
- small pretzel twists
- pretzel rods
- vanilla wafers
Sometimes I also add in chocolate bars broken into small pieces. White chocolate, milk chocolate, dark chocolate— they are all wonderful dipped in a s'mores cookie dough dip!
Feel free to use any of your other favorite snacks, too.
This snack board should be easy to make, since you don't have to chop, slice, or wash anything like in traditional fruit, veggie, and meat boards.
If you need to purchase a charcuterie board, you can find endless options on Amazon. Home Goods is another great option for good quality, yet discounted boards.
This board on Amazon is one of my favorite circular boards. I love that it has handles for easy carrying.
If you'd like a rectangular snack board, this one here is a great option. But you can also use a large wooden cutting board if you don't have time to go shopping or if you're on a really tight budget.
But my absolute favorite board is this Smirly Cheese Board. It's awesome for wine, cheese, meat, nuts, and fruit because it has 5 different serving sections and servingware.
I hope that you enjoy this fun summer party board!

💭 Pro Tips
I go into detail about making charcuterie boards and keeping them kid-friendly here. The suggestions there apply to all boards, so this is a good starting point if you're new to making snack boards.
In addition to these general guidelines, keep these things in mind when making a s'mores board.
How hot will it be? Be cautious about chocolate on your board if you are placing it outside and you live in a seasonably hot location.
Kids with allergies. Kid-friendly snack boards should be free of nuts in case of any allergies.
The ages of the kids. Watch out for choking hazards when making a s'mores snack boards. Depending on their ages, you may need to offer soft dipping snacks.
I love vanilla wafers, teddy grahams, and graham crackers on my kid-friendly snack boards because they are pretty soft, or at least crumble easily, when bitten. Pretzels are great too, but opt for the thinner style pretzels for younger kids.
