The Perfect S’more

Yes indeed, I am a major connoisseur of s'mores.  Nothing says summer like being outdoors, roasting a marshmallow and feasting upon gooey, sticky chocolatey s'mores!  I consider myself a skilled s'more maker.  I believe the true secret to a perfect s'more is melting the chocolate along with the marshmallow.  I patiently melt my chocolate and slow roast my marshmallow to sticky perfection.  However, it is a bit precarious to balance the chocolate squares near a hot fire, avoiding bugs and flames! So a solution was born... 
Four Steps to the Perfect S'more!

1.  Using a skewer, spear the center of a marshmallow.  Do not poke all the way through, but carve out a little pocket inside of the marshmallow.  Now nestle a chocolate square deep inside the marshmallow.
2.  Roast up that marshmallow!  Spear the marshmallow so that the chocolate won't drip out as you are roasting!  These hungry boys want every drop of melted chocolate!  
3.  Once that 'mallow is perfectly roasted, center on a graham cracker foundation.  Squeeze between another graham cracker and watch the chocolate ooze!
4.  DIG IN!

**The perfect s'more is the perfect addition to an evening of homemade fireworks!**

    No kiddin! This is a fabulous idea on the chocolate! I also saw a recipe recently that used blackberries, chocolate and marshmellows that looked heavenly.

    We love making Smores over our fire pit. We have always just put the choc. on the graham cracker then add the cooked marshmellow. The choc. never really melted enough so I'm so excited to have read your blog today!!!! Next weekend we are having a family reunion at a lake. Looks like I'm putting The Perfect S'more on my list. Thanks.

    We are all about a peanut butter cup instead of the hard chocolate square. Mmmmmm!

  6. Elle Belles Bows says

    Love the idea of placing the chocolate on the inside! Thanks!

  7. I LOVE s'mores! And that's such a great idea! I don't have a fire pit… been on the wish list for a while… so I normally just make mine in the microwave.

  8. What a neat idea! I will have to try that next time.

  9. I'm a new follower.

  10. Yum, yum, yum! I LOVE s',ores too. When the chocolate is melted it's soooo much better. WHat a clever idea!

    We are s'more fanatics at my house. I posted about other s'more-y desserts for Valentine's Day when Feb. cold made s'mores impossible. Stop by and check it out if you get a chance.

  14. can someone please explain why i have never thought of trying to roast my marshmallow this way?! genius! 😉

  15. raggygirlvintage says

    Have to try that, though we usually eat half the chocolate before the fire is even ready!

  16. Megan - A Ruffle In Time says
