There are so many variations to the s’more, which, in my opinion is a great flavor combination and not to be messed with too much. It’s only fault is that it is messy to eat. When you bite into it, the graham cracker breaks because the chocolate bar is too thick. To remedy that problem is easy, You need to combine the chocolate with the graham cracker – simple, since Keebler and others make graham crackers with a thin layer of chocolate already on them. You could also use a chocolate chip cookie in place of a chocolate/graham combo. We took it a step towards even more decadence by using a chocolate Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup cookie to sandwich our roasted marshmallow.
We also didn’t have a campfire so we roasted the marshmallows in the flame of the stove top.
You could also put your marshmallow on the bottom s/more layer and pop it under the broiler until its toasty, take it out and put on the top layer.
Some other variations we have tried are:
Use sturdy ruffled potato chips instead of graham cracker = gluten-free and salty sweet.
Once for a Christmas party I had a S’mores bar around an out-door fire pit. I put out several toppings such as, peanut butter, jam, banana slices, caramel sauce, Nuttella, and raspberries,
Your graham cracker can be substituted with any cookie ( how about opening an Oreo and putting a toasted marshmallow inside?) Rice Kristy treat, even a toasted waffle.
The chocolate element could be any chocolate candy, M&Ms, Mounds, chocolate chips.
The marshmallow really needs to be marshmallow but if you don’t have any you could use marshmallow fluff. My boys I nanny are Kosher so I always get Kosher marshmallows. There’s gelatin in regular marshmallows. Trader Joe’s are Kosher, but only available in summer . You can usually find marshmallows in the Kosher section of the grocery store. Marshmallow Fluff in the jar is also usually Kosher.
