S’mores! They call them that for good reason. I know I can’t eat just one! Can you? See? S’more! Enough said! Well not really, but you get the point!
I have eaten s’mores for as long as i can remember! It was probably back in my Girl Scout Days when it all started. It has become a staple when we do campfires! I always eat the traditional graham cracker, chocolate bar, and marshmallow. Delicious, right? My absolute favorite candy bar is Reese”s Peanut Butter cups, but yet I never even thought of trying that! That just all changed! I had my first one with a peanut butter cup! Why did I never try that before! Well, that got us talking about other ways they might be good! So I thought I’d share them with you!
Some of these are obvious, but yet, I’ve never tried them! Have you?
- Chocolate graham cracker, peppermint patty, marshmallow.
- Graham cracker, chocolate covered pretzels, marshmallow.
- Chocolate graham cracker, peanut butter, marshmallow.
- Chocolate chip cookie, Nutella, marshmallow.
- Graham cracker, bacon, chocolate covered salted caramel, marshmallow.
- Graham cracker, chocolate covered cherry, marshmallow.
- Graham cracker, Kit Kat bar, marshmallow.
- Graham cracker, Musketeer bar, marshmallow. I would cut the candy in half, lengthwise, so it isn’t quite so thick! But that’s just my opinion!
- Graham cracker, Milky Way bar, marshmallow. Again, I’d cut this one, too, just because they are so thick!
- Graham cracker, Snickers bar, marshmallow. Cut this one, too.
Well, you see where I’m going? Any kind of candy bar or cookie combination would probably taste good! But don’t take my word for it! Give them a try the next time you get a chance!
Need some spice in your life? I’ve even heard of adding spices to them, such as cinnamon or chili powder. I haven’t tried any this way yet, but I might get brave and try one of these the next time we have a campfire!
No fire access?
I realize some of you can’t get to a fire to make a s’more! If you live in the city, or an apartment, where you just can’t build a fire, there are still options! You can use your microwave to soften up the marshmallow and chocolate. If you do it this way, be careful! Both of these will get extremely hot, and may burn your finger or mouth. Another choice would be to put everything together, wrap it in aluminum foil, and bake in an oven at 325 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes until the marshmallow and chocolate soften! This way works great in the middle of winter, when you don’t want to stand outside roasting a marshmallow, too! Unless of course, you’re lucky enough to not have cold winters! Here you have a taste of summer all year long!
If you try any of these, or try your own combination, come back and share your ideas with me! I’m always ready when chocolate is involved! Maybe next time, I’ll top mine with ice cream! Sounds yummy!
