I simply can't hide the marshmallows from my kids. Or you guys for that matter! You guessed it! It's marshmallows dipped in that wonderful chocolate and then in some crushed graham crackers. This is a variation from the famous camping dessert that young and old enjoy. The original smores toasted marshmallows on a stick over the campfire, then added to a graham cracker, a small bar of chocolate, and topped with another graham cracker like a sandwich for easy handling.
The ones I made are not toasted (which are safer for toddlers), and I left the bowls of melted chocolate and crashed graham crackers out for the kids to dip it themselves. And they loved the making their own personal smores with the mini-marshmallows which are just their size!
I had the regular size marshmallow. See the difference in size?
After the kids went to bed, I couldn't resist roasting a couple of marshmallows for the adults, and made this over my gas stove. After all, it was snowing and cold outside, and some gooey fun smores seemed perfect!
Laid out the graham crackers and dark chocolate bars (thanks again Ioyces!).
Roasted the marshmallow on a open fire (indoors this time). Be patient with the marshmallows and try not to burn them. They should be warm enough to melt the chocolate. About a minute over the fire. You don't want them to fall off the stick either!
Sandwich the marshmallow and you have yourself a delicious treat! Careful not to burn your mouth as those marshmallows can be hot!
