Many of us have memories of making S'more with scouts, family or friends...or for me, all three. These yummy and simplistic treats are hard to make at home is you don't have fireplaces, grills or gas stoves...or just want to use something faster, less dangerous and won't cause your asthma to go into shock. I'm that last one, because I do have all three "appliances". I love toasted marshmallows, so I did some research on dessert recipes that use chocolate, graham crackers and marshmallow to create unbasic yummy treats, without the use of a fireplace.
I predict drool forming when you see these photos...
I thought we should start with something basic. This is a much easier way to make perfect s'mores.
I've had creme brulee and love it. S'more Brulee is a different take on a French classic. I would eat it. If you don't like the "Creme", use pudding, a brownie or ice cream instead. If you don't have a blow torch, for everything, but the ice cream, you can toast or broil these in the oven for a few seconds to crisp the marshmallows. Caramel would be good on these too.
If you are not a wiz at baking, or just lazy like me, you can use boxes brownie mix to make the brownie batter part. I still recommend making the crust like instructed. I have attempted to make something similar to these, but put the marshmallows on top of the unbaked brownies. I strongly don't recommend putting the marshmallows on before the brownies are baked, it will effect the baking time and they won't taste as good as you wanted them to. Definitely put the marshmallows on after the brownies are done.
This is a really simple way to make a basic dessert more gourmet. I would sprinkle the tops with cinnamon and sugar to give the dessert some added flavor.
If you want something a bit different than this, try using Pillsbury crescent roll dough. Form the dough into a pizza sized circle or square. Bake until golden brown. Add mini marshmallows, ground up graham cracker crumbs, and chocolate chips. Sprinkle with some cinnamon. Bake again until the marshmallows are toasted and the chocolate has melted. Optional, smear peanut butter on the crust before adding toppings.
This is a fairly extensive cupcake recipe, but the presentation is lovely.
I wouldn't call this a "sundae". It's more like a huge ice cream sandwich. Still, it's a yummy idea.
I love milkshakes. It's my favorite way to eat (drink?) ice cream. I'm not sure I would be able to drink the marshmallows, but the idea is nice. I've had ice cream with toasted marshmallows and chocolate chips on top. It's the most delicious ice cream I've ever had. I think the one I had was cookie dough ice cream, with hot fudge, mini marshmallows, crushed graham cracker and chocolate chips in top. The top of it was toasted with a mini torch (which melted the marshmallows together and garnished with graham crackers. If you don't have a mini torch, you can toast the marshmallows in an oven or toaster over instead. The effect will be the same.
