August 10th (Thursday) is National S’mores Day. Though nobody quite agrees on where s’mores came from (or who gave them their silly name), it’s clear to me that the things could only have been invented by a kid. Nobody over ten years-old would ever think of squishing together a chocolate bar, a toasted marshmallow, and a pair of graham crackers, and calling it food.
Usually, s’mores are associated with sitting around a campfire but if you are more an indoor person, having a campfire indoors is out of the question and a fire hazzard. Luckily, with this recipe you can stay indoors, watch your favorite movies and enjoy the ooey gooeyness of s’mores.
several big marshmallows cut into quarters
several squares of Graham Crackers
a block of unsweetened chocolate bar
- Place the square graham cracker pieces on the cookie sheet. Ensure proper spacing for this to maintain the equal distribution of heat inside the oven.
- Cut the chocolate block into smaller pieces. Make sure that the chocolate pieces are almost the same size as the marshmallow.
- Place the chocolate pieces on top of each graham cracker.
- Place the marshmallows on top of the chocolate afterwards. Be careful in placing each marshmallow since there is a possibility that the mallows will roll on the sides.
- Set the oven to 425° and place the cookie sheet inside. Set the timer to roughly 5 minutes. The marshmallows should be at least brownish before removing it from the oven. The duration of baking will depend on the type of marshmallow used and the type of chocolate used. Each type or marshmallow and chocolate has different melting points, so make sure to observe this every minute.
- Remove the cooked s’more pieces from the oven and immediately place another piece of graham cracker on top of the marshmallows.
- Yummy overload! Your graham s’more sandwiches are ready to be served!
Make as many as you want and satisfy your cravings! Enjoy!
