S’mores 2.0

17 Sep

Remember the chocolate covered grahams?  They were amazing.  My marshmallow making experiment – not so successful.  I ended up with a pan of marshmallow creme, which really wasn’t so bad.  I made Rice Krispy treats with some, and Granola Krispies with some more, and then I made the best s’mores ever.

I’ve never been a huge fan of s’mores.  I like the idea.  I like the chocolate, and the toasted marshmallows, and the crackers…but they’re a little clunky if you ask me.  I’m not one to complain about chocolate, but it seems like such a thick slab of it when you’re making a sandwich, and one marshmallow is never enough, but two don’t seem quite to fit without oozing out one on side and leaving the other without.

So here’s my solution: homemade chocolate covered grahams with just enough soft and melty chocolate ganache in a nice thick layer that won’t go sliding anywhere and homemade marshmallow creme that you can scoop out in just the right amount.

Even better would be homemade marshmallows that actually set up properly, which you then cut into a size just right for the s’mores, and toasted over your backyard campfire.

…but we can’t have perfection at every turn.  These will have to do.

    I LOVE making marshmallows. I even thought of having a candy and confection business for awhile. Want to compare notes and see if we can figure out why yours didn’t set up properly? xoxo

      Good to hear from you! I think they may have failed b/c I spilled some of the gelatin, but I really can’t complain – the marshmallow creme was really good! I’d like to do more candy making too – any favorite recipes?

        That makes sense. I usually eyeball the gelatin and have noticed differences. I’ll think about recipes and get back to you. Let’s catch up soon!
