I don’t know about you, but there is nothing quite as satisfying as the taste of graham cracker, marshmallow, and chocolate and melted together in a gooey sandwich of amazingness. Okay… maybe I love s’mores a little too much, but they really are good!
The only down side is that they are a summer treat. You have them when you’re out at a campfire or having a bonfire on the beach. When winter hits, the campfires go inside, and the s’mores go into hibernating. Or do they?
Personally, I like to be able to enjoy s’mores all year round. So I had to figure out a way to make them in my kitchen that didn’t involve a real fire on my counter, or killing my microwave with marshmallow slime. This is what I’ve come up with. I hope you get a chance to try it out this winter. If you think s’mores are amazing all on their own, just wait until you have one paired with a steaming mug of hot chocolate!
12 graham cracker squares
6 large marshmallows
3 Hershey’s chocolate bars
First, turn on your broiler to its lowest setting. If you set it too high, you’ll end up with burnt marshmallows that aren’t even warm on the inside. Let the broiler preheat for about five minutes.
On a cookie sheet, place 6 of your graham cracker squares down. Then, top it with half a Hershey bar. Finally, add a marshmallow on top of that. Put it flat side down so that it doesn’t roll around when you move the tray. Place the cookie sheet in the oven, and allow it to heat for about 4 minutes. Pull the s’mores out, and immediately top them with the remaining graham cracker squares!
If you want to be even more creative, substitute the regular squares for other candy bars. Reese Cups work really well, and you can even try Kit Kats, or whatever your favorite candy bar might be.
I hope you enjoy!
