Something Sweet: Smores
For me, a summer is never complete without a bon-fire and plenty of smores! My husband always gives me a hard time because I can't just eat 1 smore (or two for that matter). Actually, I tend to loose count whenever he asks but I'm guessing by the end of the night I eat around 5...or so.
I love getting creative with them too. Last weekend we made smores with Reeses peanut butter cups, but its fun to experiment with all varieties of chocolate candy bars! For a while, I would buy Chips Ahoy cookies instead of graham crackers and chocolate. Its a lot more convenient and a little less messy, but nothing compares to the original smore combination.
There is one thing that bothers my just a little when it comes to traditional smores...topping the graham with a cold piece of chocolate. To bypass this unfortunate occurrence, I like to pre-set up my chocolate next to the fire so its nice and melty by the time my marshmallows are ready.
There is one question that I must ask you readers when it comes to smores.....
Do you prefer a "charred" mallow or one that is "golden brown" ???
