I am sorry I am so late with this post today, as well as skipping yesterday. It's been a rough one for me. If you've never been pregnant before never let anyone tell you how pregnancy is going to go. Nobody else has been you pregnant before, so, they really just don't know what they're talking about.
Anyway, did you know that yesterday was National S'mores day? It's the day when we can all celebrate and enjoy that delicious camp fire treat of a roasted marshmallow, a chocolate bar, and some graham crackers. It's a tasty treat that has experienced a renaissance in the way it's built and presented.
Here on our blog we have shared a s'mores variation known as Chocolate Dipped S'Mores Bars. You may also remember this post where we talked about our favorite Campfire Dishes and showed you a picture of the S'mores bar Alicia had at her wedding reception.
We love getting together and roasting our marshmallows to perfection over the fire pit in my parent's backyard. I also have fond memories of camping as a child and making s'mores to enjoy over the fire.
Madalynn made this other fun variation on s'mores a while back and she is letting me share the how to with you. She used vegan marshmallows since she is trying very hard to eat vegan, but regular marshmallows will still work. She also used 86% dark chocolate and graham crackers without honey.
In order to make it you first put the marshmallows on the stick, then coat in melted chocolate, and roll in the graham crackers. Then you freeze them. She also warns to refrigerate them before you serve them or they are really hard.
Here is a photo of everything she assembled to make it. She used very dark chocolate, but I'm sure you could use less dark if dark chocolate isn't your thing. (It's my thing, but it is not my mom's thing.) This is a fun variation to use if you don't have a fire pit in the backyard and can't take the time to go camping, but you still need a S'mores fix. Even though yesterday was National S'mores Day, it's not too late. You can make this fun and tasty treat this weekend and enjoy a delicious s'more!
