I‘m not much of an outdoorsy girl, and camping isn’t exactly my idea of a good time. But the one good thing about camping is s’mores. Toasted marshmallows, melted chocolate and graham crackers make the best kind of camp food.
Unfortunately these days when I get a craving for s’mores, I lack the means to make a campfire. My landlord wouldn’t be too fond of me if I tried build a bonfire in the courtyard.
Thus, for many years, I went without s’mores. I know—poor me. Boo-hoo. But then I started seeing all these recipes for s’mores bars. Graham crackers? Check. Chocolate? You bet. Marshmallows? Oh yeah. Delicious? Totally.
These little buggers are unbelievably good but very, very rich. I can only eat a sliver at a time. Granted, I ate five slivers within the hour, but I couldn’t eat a big piece in one sitting. My sweet tooth is weak, so some of you may have no problem handling an adult sized piece.
