S'mores are a classic camping snack, indeed, it doesn't feel like summer is officially here until we've tasted the sweet, melted delight of a s'more made with campfire marshmallows. It's just not the same at home, the campfire of course infuses that marshmallow with a woody, smoky taste that just can't be replicated at home.
Since these are made at home – and can be made ahead to take camping- I'm allowing you to roast your marshmallows in the oven.
These are a snap to prep.
You will need:
- graham wafers, two whole ones per s'more
- chocolate of your choice to melt in between
- melting chocolate in your chosen colors OR plain semi-sweet chocolate
- lollipop sticks
On a baking sheet, line up your graham wafers in pairs. Place a marshmallow on one half of the pair and the chocolate on the other.
In a 400 degree oven, heat the marshmallows until puffy and soft, you can even go for a lovely brown shade if desired.
Remove from the oven and place a lollipop stick on the marshmallow graham wafers, in the center.
Taking the chocolate graham wafer, place on top of the marshmallow one, pressing gently to form a s'more.
Cool until firm and the lollipop stick will not fall out.
Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.
Melt your chocolate in a glass container and dip the s'mores into it, tapping the excess off.
Cover with the sprinkles of your choice and lay onto the cookie sheet.
Cool until the chocolate has hardened.
Can we say YUM!!
Can we also say hurrah for the last day of school! Ohmygoodnessohmygoodness I can hardly wait until the end of today! I don't know how to even start celebrating the fact that I don't have to drive the kids for two whole months, that piano and voice lessons are done for two whole months, that we are going to be at the lake for two whole months (ok, not quite) and that we are free for two whole months!
Two. Whole. Months.
