What could be better than a chilly night, fire and S’mores?  Not much.


I remember my first experience with s’mores.  I was at a Girl Scout campout and thought those little nuggets of ooey goodness were the best things I had ever tasted. 

Fast forward 20ish years.  I still love the original recipe with graham crackers, Hershey’s Milk Chocolate and marshmallows, but now it’s fun to make them with a twist.



Instead of regular graham crackers try:

-chocolate graham crackers/wafers
-cinnamon graham crackers
-tea biscuits
-chocolate chip cookies




Instead of milk chocolate try:

-Reese's Cups
-Dark Chocolate
-Flavored/Specialty Chocolate:  caramel, raspberry, orange, mint, cookies and cream



Add ons:

-Peanut butter
-Biscoff spread
-Sliced strawberries or bananas
-Toasted Coconut
-Chopped Nuts (walnuts, peanuts, pecans, etc)


No fire?  No problem!
Microwave: Place graham cracker on the bottom of a microwave safe plate.  Put marshmallow on top and microwave for 10-12 seconds until it doubles in size.Top with chocolate and remaining part of the graham cracker.  Enjoy!
Oven:  Place graham crackers on baking sheet. Put 1 square of chocolate on each cracker. Place a marshmallow on each piece of chocolate. Put in a 350° oven for 4 to 6 minutes, just long enough to melt marshmallow and soften the chocolate. Remove from oven and put another graham cracker on top to make a sandwich.
