Shock horror! Yes, I am starting the new year off with a slightly less than healthy eating example since my poor deprived daughter never had a S’more experience growing up. There was a bonfire on the beach almost
every night while we were there, so we planned a New Years Eve treat. Well – I did say the new year was for trying new experiences and things! In my realm that should include culinary ones, too.
Unfortunately my nephew came down with pneumonia (he is okay now, but it would have been so much more fun with the twins), and the fog rolled in that evening, so our plans were postponed until New Year’s Day.
And the gas stove played understudy to the campfire, but the results were fun and delicious none the less. In case any one else out there has missed out on S’more bliss – here is how you do it (wherever fire is available).
Prepare your graham crackers and piece of chocolate, so you can squish it all together quickly once the marshmallow is hot and gooey to help melt the chocolate a little. Place a marshmallow on a skewer and
hold over the fire, turning occasionally to achieve an all round golden exterior. Don’t worry if it catches fire, just blow it out. A little bit of singed marshmallow adds flavor and texture.
Once you have the desired color on the outside, quickly place over the prepared graham cracker with
chocolate, and use the top graham cracker to help pull the ooey gooey marshmallow off the skewer.
Press down lightly to make the S’more sandwich with the hot marshmallow oozing over the melting chocolate.
Eat by hand, and whatever you do – refuse to share this luscious treat with anyone, no matter how hard they
beg, especially the dog (chocolate is poison for them, you know – I found that out the hard way once).
