Once set, turn the marshmallows onto a cutting board and cut them into any shape you prefer. Dust again with confectioners’ sugar and enjoy!

Doing more with S’mores

S’mores may seem like a camping-only food; however, you can enjoy the delicious treat all year long.

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.

When choosing a Ham consider which type will be best for your cooking style. Bone-in hams are traditionally seen as more elegant, and boneless hams are considered easier to serve, both have the same great taste.
Here are some important tips to help you select, prepare, and serve your ham this Easter:

  • Plan on two to three servings per pound when serving bone-in ham. A boneless ham will yield four to five servings per pound.
  • Bone-in hams are available whole, or as a shank or butt half. Bone-in hams are trickier to carve than boneless hams. For those who like to keep it simpler, another option is to buy a ham that is pre-sliced or spiral sliced.
  • Unwrapped hams, in their original packaging, will stay fresh in the refrigerator for several weeks.
  • Virtually all hams come fully cooked (just check the label). Preparation is easy – unwrap, heat to an internal temperature of 140 degrees F, and serve. (Check out our post on meat thermometers for more information.) Follow the directions on the label and heat in a moderate (325-350 degrees F) oven. Or, if you prefer, you can serve the ham cold.
