Do you ever have a recipe that just sounds good and you’re not quite sure if it will turn out or not? That’s how I was with these sliders. I mean, it sounded like a good idea.

I’d seen a few recipes for s’mores sliders, but not with pumpkin, caramel, and pecans on there. Where does the pumpkin puree go? On the bun? On the graham crackers? The caramel and pecans were easy. They go on at the same time as the chocolate chips.

Yes. Chocolate chips. I didn’t want to put whole chocolate bars on the sliders. I think they would be super sweet if I did. Not to mention it they might overpower the flavor of the pumpkin puree. And since this recipe is for #PumpkinWeek I didn’t want the flavor of the pumpkin to get lost.

Because it tastes delicious. Like pie ready delicious.

What is a slider?

The slider started with White Castle. The name, however, is not so clear cut. Maybe it’s the Navy term because they were greasy and slid down so easily. Or it’s because they slid down your throat easily in a couple of bites. Finally, it could be from sliding the patty across the griddle to be topped and make room for more sliders. I’m sure they all have a claim in the term slider.

Of course, the term “slider” is now anything served up on a small bun that is just a couple bites. They’re all a sandwich that’s about 2 inches square-ish. Most sliders are appetizers or served at sporting events or parties. But I like having them for dinner. If I see sliders on the appetizer menu, I will order them for dinner.

Sliders are not just burgers anymore. There’s ham and cheese, tuna melt, meatball, sloppy joe. The possibilities are endless. If you can slap it on a bun, then you can make it a slider. Including dessert sliders like these pumpkin s’mores sliders.

What are pumpkin s’mores sliders?

They are easy to make, are messy as all get out, and super fun to eat. They have a spiced pumpkin puree on the bottom and then graham crackers go on top of the puree. Then I sprinkled chocolate chips and pecans on top of the crackers.

I carefully sprinkled mini marshmallows on top of the chips and pecans. Then the whole thing goes in the oven under the broiler. WATCH CAREFULLY! I wanted to get the marshmallows a little brown and the only way I could do that is with a broiler. But it does not take long at all. So, be careful!

Finally, the top buns go on. I covered the pan and popped it into the oven for about 10 minutes. The chocolate needed to melt, and the buns needed to heat up. While they were cooking, I combined the melted butter and graham cracker crumbs.

They look like I burned them, but I didn’t. That is chocolate graham crackers combined with the melted butter. I wanted chocolate graham crackers, but I cannot seem to find those in the stores anymore. What happened to them?

When the chocolate is all melted and delicious, pull them out of the oven. Remove the cover and brush the tops with the graham cracker and butter mixture. Make sure every top gets an even coating. Then pop them back into the oven to brown the tops just a little.

You have to let them cool slightly before diving into the pan. I know it will be difficult to resist the urge to dive in immediately, but the melted chocolate and gooey marshmallows will be too hot to eat. Trust me on this one. I speak from experience.

Just look at all that messy goodness on a slider bun! You have to admit that all the kids in your family will love these delicious pumpkin s’mores sliders. Not only because they’re fun to eat, but because they’re packed with delicious pumpkin, chocolate, and marshmallow goodness. I drizzled the tops with some caramel when they came out, too. Oh yeah. So good.
