S'mores Again

Since this is National S'mores Week I thought I would re-run this post!
Those cute ridges in the first picture sort of baked out in the oven. I couldn't let the dough chill long enough because I was so excited to eat them! I have some dough left over in the freezer, so I'll see if the ridges stay next time.

Just fire up your grill pan, (or any pan) and toast away!!


My son asked if we could make s'mores in the fire pit the other night. Well, it was too cold to sit around the fire pit, but it did put a little idea in my mind.
I decided to make indoor s'mores, but then I decided to kick it into high gear and make homemade marshmallows and homemade graham crackers. I couldn't figure out how to make homemade chocolate so I melted some dark chocolate chips out of the bag. Yummmmmmm!!

Okay here's where the drama kicks in. I was making marshmallows with Smitten Kitchen's recipe. My kitchen was a disaster, there was marshmallow all over me and in my hair, I finally get them in the pan, and I cannot tell you how excited I was for my younger son to try them........drumroll.....then he says, "I like the ones from the bag better." What? Guess what...I got the same response from the homemade graham crackers.....

So I decided these S'mores are adults only. BUT then I realized I really couldn't get any adult excited about eating s'mores at 3 o'clock in the afternoon for no good reason. Dilema. I decided to eat one instead of dinner, and let me tell you it was the best thing EVER!!

Give those taste-bud lacking children the cheap store bought stuff and make yourself and your significant others something yummy!! (Older boy hasn't tried them yet, and he has never actually met a food he doesn't like.) My husband goes on girly diets every once in a while, so we'll see if he's eating sugar this week. I'm not the dieting kind of gal. That's because I eat everything in moderation. That doesn't work for him.

The recipes are on Smitten Kitchen:
Come on.... try it!!
