Have a S’more

A S’more is very satisfying. Last night I made one up after all the household chores were done.

If you don’t know how to make one, it’s simple. First, you take one graham cracker and split it in half. These two pieces act kind of like the slices of bread in a sandwich: they hold everything together.

Then you toast a marshmallow. It’s best to do this over the coals of a fire. I didn’t have any hot coals handy last night, so I made my S’more over the dinky gas flame of my kitchen stove. Classy. You just put the marshmallow on a stick of some kind and hold it a few inches above the flame. Keep rotating the marshmallow so that it gets evenly cooked. You want it to be golden brown. If you hold it too close to the heat, or neglect to rotate it, the marshmallow might catch on fire and you’ll have to blow out the flame and settle for a burnt taste. Some people like theirs burnt, but my advice is to go for golden brown.

Some people like to use two marshmallows. Not me. I use one marshmallow.

When the marshmallow is golden brown, slide it off the stick and onto one of the graham cracker halves.

Now you need a piece of chocolate. Hershey’s is a good choice, though you can use anything. Break off a small piece, about half the size of a business card. Put it on top of the toasted marshmallow.

Put the second graham cracker half on top of the chocolate. Enjoy.

  • I made them today and that's what I found, too the chocolate isn't nelary as much as you'd think from the picture. However, I think if it were that much, I might not like them as well. I also probably went too light on the graham crackers, but did get the crust to hold together, though the texture was almost fudgy with graham crumbs throughout.
