S More S'mores, Please



I brought marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate on our last two camping trips intending to make some delicious s'mores.  It would have made our fellow campers very happy, but I completely forgot about the s'mores and returned from our trips and with all the packages unopened.  We had never camped without having a night of roasted marshmallows, melted chocolate and sticky fingers until then.

Luckily, I remembered I had the ingredients to make s'mores when we had Soko's sister and brother-in-law over for a BBQ.  S'mores make a perfect dessert after a dinner of hamburger and hot dogs.  But since we were not camping, we didn't have a fire handy to roast our marshmallows.  The next best thing was to just gather up the ingredients and wrap them all up in foil.  You don't get the char on your marshmallow but you do get a nice smoky tasting treat.



The s'mores we made for our BBQ dessert were delicious but I wondered of we could have a little more fun with them.  I still had everything we needed to make more s'mores and I remembered that I had a chocolate bar the same size as the ones we use for s'mores but this bar had mini candy coated peanut butter chips in them.  Hmm...how would that taste if we substituted it for the plain chocolate bar.  What if I took one of the plain chocolate bars and topped it with toffee chips, which I love.   I invited daughter, Lisa over to sample our new s'mores recipe.  And since I know that Lisa is a fan of mint chocolate, I crushed up peppermint just for her.

The "fun" s'mores were a big hit!

Foil Wrapped S'mores

Ingredients

Graham crackers
Marshmallows
Chocolate bars
Chocolate bars with peanut butter chips
White chocolate bars with cookie crumbs
Toffee chips
Crushed peppermint candy

Directions to make candy bars

1.  Heat oven to 350 degrees.

2.  Take plain chocolate bars and break them in half.  

3.  Cover a cookie sheet with foil and place chocolate bars on.


4.  Bake chocolate in oven until just melted, 1 minute.

5.  Immediately place toffee chips or peppermint candy on top of chocolate and use a spatula or spoon to gently press the candy into the chocolate.



6.  Put chocolate into freezer to harden and leave them in there until ready to use.

Directions for cooking s'mores in outdoor grill 

7.  Cut marshmallows in half.

8.  Place 1/2 of graham cracker on a piece of foil large enough to wrap s'more, top with one halved marshmallow, chocolate, second halved marshmallow, then cover with other 1/2 of graham cracker.

9.  Wrap s'more in the foil.

10.  Place s'mores filled foil packets on grill.



11.  Close grill top and bake s'mores on low heat for 5 minutes, turning packets over halfway through baking time.   (We have a gas grill.  Timing might be different with a charcoal grill.)  

12.  Unwrap your s'mores and enjoy!

---------------------------------

I am sure, if I remember on our next camping trip , that we will have s'mores the traditional way with  roasted marshmallows.   But I will definitely have a few foil wrapped s'mores for baking on the grill when  I need to have a s'mores quicker than someone can get the campfire going!

  3. We don't have Smores in the UK so I have never tried them. It sounds yummy though. We don't have Graham Crackers, but I am sure we could find an alternative. Thanks for joining the #DreamTeam
