Doing more with S’mores

3 simple ingredients:

  • 1 full graham cracker broken in half
  • 4 squares of Hershey’s chocolate
  • 1 large marshmallow

Tin Foil S’more

Cut a large square of tin foil and lay it on a flat surface. Build your traditional s’more on top and wrap it tightly with the tin foil. From here, you have 2 options. If you are near a fire, place the s’more tin foil package near the fire on the hot coals and let it roast for 5-7 minutes. If you are at home, pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Place the tin foil package on the top rack for 5-7 minutes. Unwrap the package and enjoy!

Microwave S’more

Build a traditional s’more and place on a microwave safe plate. Microwave your s’more for 30 seconds on high for an ooey-gooey marshmallow and chocolate delight.

Stove top S’more

Place the marshmallow on a long metal skewer. Turn your stove top flame to high. Roast your marshmallow over the flame while rotating for 3-5 minutes until golden brown. Be sure to not touch the flame, it will burn and potentially catch your marshmallow on fire. Place your golden-brown marshmallow on your graham cracker, top with chocolate and remaining graham cracker. Voila! You have a toasty s’more.
