Anyone who has grown up in Canada – camping, going to the cottage, or in the Scout or Girl Guide movements – knows all about s’mores. Short for “some more” they are so good, it’s what you have to say, “s’more please!” Note that Americans claim to have invented this treat but I believe they may have been the first to write down what Canadians had been doing for generations.
There are variations of the original recipe but here’s one our family loved. There are three main ingredients: marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate. The chocolate and marshmallow form the filling for a sandwich made with two graham crackers. I’ve also seen peanut butter, potato chips, and other bizarre additions….even toasted coconut and sunflower seeds. But let’s stick to the basics.
- A package large size marshmallows
- I box graham crackers
- 1 bar good milk or dark chocolate (according to your taste)
We used to cut a length of small green branch to use as a skewer for tone or two marshmallows. Toast the marshmallow(s) until flaming. Blow it out and place the marshmallows on the cracker. Now add a large square of chocolate while it’s still hot. Cover with second graham cracker. Press firmly to melt the marshmallow and chocolate together. Enjoy!
