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" ???

  7. Looks really good - but when it comes to the different ways of putting the marshmallow into biscuits etc. - we didn't try that here in Denmark - but it looks so good with the chocolate - I think I would prefer dark bitter chocolate - because the marshmallow is so sweet ;o)
    And it has to be brown and crispy on the outside and soft inside.
    Yummy ;o)

  9. Charred! But only because I'm too impatient for golden brown and just shove those puppies right into the flame,

    Love the reese's idea. Im gonna try it out for sure. Also, I love s'mores so much that I make them in the microwave (helps out with that cold chocolate problem, too). I'm a little ashamed to admit it but it's such a quick sweet treat that I can't help myself.

  10. Ahh I love s'mores, and every s'mores inspired dessert! I definitely like a golden brown marshmallow. I will stand there forever barely holding it over the flame to get the perfect shade of golden brown!

  11. I'm British and we don't have smores... I know what they are through TV and my Canadian husband! But never had one. I now really really want one! They look SO good!

  12. As a kid, brunt, peeling off each layer and re-toasting. Now, slow roasted, golden brown. This way the entire mallow gets soft. I use small peanut butter cups and cram them inside the mallow, so the choc. gets soft and warm. The best!!

  15. I'm a golden brown kind of girl. We love making s'mores so much that during the winter we'll use skewers and the open flame on the gas oven! :)

  16. Yummy pics. I like them done over a fire definitely. Like mine more charred though, gets that chocolate melting all over your mouth!
