6 Ways to Upgrade your S’more
With this weather we’ve been having, we knew a perfect post for today would be all about our favorite campfire snack, s’mores! Here are 6 awesome and delicious ways to make your s’more worthy of a gourmet award. Have other awesome ideas? Leave them in our comments!
Peanut butter (or soy nut butter) makes everything better. So does bacon.
Start with the basics for your classic s’more but spread a layer of peanut butter (or soy nut butter) under the chocolate. Better yet, switch out your chocolate for a Reese’s peanut butter cup or any chocolate candy with peanut butter in the middle. Break a slice of bacon in half and put that on top of the marshmallow just before you press your s’more together. It’s the perfect mix of salty and sweet. If your an Elvis fan, you might as well add a slice or two of banana for a s’more the King would love.
Handheld Lemon Meringue Pie
That’s right, this recipe is like a single serving of lemon meringue pie. You’ll need graham crackers and your marshmallow still, but swap our your
chocolate for a spoonful of lemon curd or lemon pie filling. Mix it up and add some key lime pie filling for an extra kick.
All Things Caramel
Chocolate, a sprinkle of crunchy sea salt, and rich, smooth, caramel make pretty much everything better. Cover your chocolate (try dark chocolate on this one!) with a spoonful of caramel (try a caramel or toffee icecream topping sauce) and a sprinkle of coarse sea salt before adding your perfectly roasted marshmallow. Or you can swap out the sea salt and add some toasted coconut for a Samoa S’more!
Go savory! Trade your marshmallow for mozzarella
Sometimes we’re craving something on the savory side and this is a favorite. Substitute your graham crackers for whole wheat crackers, trade your marshmallow for a mini mozzarella ball, and instead of chocolate try chopped basil and your favorite sliced tomato. So tasty!
Mexican Hot Chocolate
Just add a light dusting of cinnamon and chili powder over your chocolate for a sweet and hot treat!
Rethink your form
When you’re craving that gooey s’more goodness but can’t light a campfire, try this baked s’more cup with a graham cracker base and marshmallow and chocolate melted in the middle. Check out this recipe for all the delicious details.
No matter how you spin it, s’more are a camp tradition we love that are good year-round. With your basic graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate, the options are as limitless as your creativity!
