Foodie Friday - S'Mores

Foodie Friday is all about sharing good food with great friends on the blog-o-sphere and just down the street.  Go visit Designs by Gollum for more goodies.

Remember the good old campfire favorite.  Toast your marshmallow in the fire pit, place on a graham cracker layered with a chocolate square, then squished together with another graham cracker to make the most delicious treat ever.
Well, I don't.  Why?  Because this is not a favorite treat in the Dominican Republic.  When I finally did get the chance to try melting a marshamalow in the campfire I failed.  The thing just caught fire and became a black blog on my stick.  Someone eventually felt bad and handed me a perfectly tanned marshmallow but to be honest, I didn't get it.  It tasted like smoke, sort of bitter.  It just wasn't working for me.
That is, until.... I discovered that I could make them at home in the microwave.
Smile Big.  Here it is.  This is a great treat when my girls have sleepovers or when I want just one for dessert.   Try it, you'll like it.
Graham Crackers
Chocolate Candy Bar
Large Marshmallows
  • Break the graham cracker in half and place in on a plate or paper towel.
  • Place 2 squares of chocolate on the cracker.
  • Place one large marshmallow on the chocolate.
  • Cook in microwave on high for 10-12 seconds.
  • Top with the other half of the graham cracker.
Squish it and eat it!!
The chocolate will melt right out but it's OK if it gets a little messy, still yummy and fun for everyone.


  1. You can also make a "blonde" version -- saltines, peanut butter and marshmallow. Yum. Makes me want to go camping... in my living room ;)

  2. Oh yes... I love making s'mores in the microwave. Delicious and easier than over a campfire... but I like them that way too. It's hard to make chocolate and marshmallow taste bad, no matter how you fix it.

  3. This must be a treat for every kid...even the big ones! (lol)

  4. @SnoWhite - great idea. My daughter loves peanut butter, banana and marshmallow. this would be a different and delicious treat. Thanks.

    @Peg - I agree that anything with chocolate taste great and maybe I should give it a second chance. Last time I just tried the marshmallow toasted by itself and it wasn't my thing. I bet I could just dip it in melted chocolate too.

    @Pop yes, everyone loves them. My friend tried this with white chocolate and again it was a hit. Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Who doesn't love s'mores. I glad you found a version that appeals to your taste. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

  6. My grand-daughters love s'mores. THANKS!!! Geri

  7. I love the "squishing" part...oh and eating it of course. I enjoy gathering around the fire-pit chatting and eatin' s'mores! That's what summer evenings are made of.

    Sweet wishes,

  8. @ Mary - yes Mary, this is my version until I am able to make one over the fire.

    @H&S - Thanks for stopping by. My girls can smell them a mile a way too.

    @Sara - the squishing part is my favorite because I know what comes next.. :-) Maybe after I move to Cuba I'll experiment making the real outdoor version.

  9. I bet your son will cherish that recipe book!! Yes, apple season is right around the corner.

  10. Hi,
    To answer your question. I have 11 cats, 3 old house cats and 8 Maine Coons.

  11. wow.. looks great..You should consider networking with the moms in the bizymoms Newport-news community. i am sure they will have some ideas as well..

  12. Now you've gone and done it! My tastebuds are shouting yes, yes, YES and my hips are saying no, no, NO! I tend to listen to my tastebuds, so I know I'm in trouble.

    I love campfire s'mores, but now that I know I can satisfy that chocolate craving in 10-12 seconds, I can be a happy camper right here at home!
