S’mores, a great little treat. With only three ingredients these little sandwiches are so simple to make. Usually when one thinks of s’mores two words come to mind. Scouting and camping. Now this is the traditional way to make and enjoy s’mores. With the temperatures rising over 100 degrees and the heat index here in Winona peaking at 110-115 degrees the thought of sitting in front of a camp fire is not possible. Being forced now to spend as much time indoors with the air-conditioning running; it is hard imagining roasting marshmallows. It would be a shame if this simple summer delight couldn’t be enjoyed this year. Now you can do just that!
- Graham cracker squares
- Chocolate squares
- Place graham cracker squares on a platter.
- Top the crackers with a square of milk chocolate.
- Place a large marshmallow over the chocolate square.
- Top the marshmallow with another graham cracker to form a sandwich.
- Place platter in microwave or oven just long enough for the marshmallow and chocolate to melt just a little.
Can we have S’more please!
Enjoy National S’mores Day with your family!
- Indoor s’mores can be made anytime and any day.
- Instead of purchasing a bag of marshmallows and fighting to keep it under wraps between the graham crackers while heating; try this out instead. Pick up a jar of marshmallow fluff. Place the graham crackers and chocolate down as usual. Spread some marshmallow fluff thickly over the chocolate and add the top of the sandwich. Then heat for a few moments until all the ingredients start to meld and melt. They will be ready to eat in less time.
- Milk chocolate is commonly used. But, there is nothing stopping your from using dark chocolate, white chocolate or a square of flavored chocolate. How would a raspberry chocolate s’more sound or maybe you’re into mint. Use a square of an Andes’ candy to give these treats a little flare.
- Surprise your children one Friday after school with a summer treat they remembered from their last camping trip. What a surprised look they’ll have when you pull out a plate with these gooey, sweet and fun treats to share.
- To cut back on the sweetness use chocolates recommended for diabetics. It still has the same chocolaty taste without all the sugar. Most children won’t even notice the difference, but you will.
