S'mores - The Ultimate Beach Fire Gourmet Sensation!


S'mores - The Ultimate Summertime Treat!
We asked  friends on our Facebook page for their favorite ideas for beach fire s'mores - and boy did we get lots of responses!  Here's a short list of  some of my favorites...  

Traditional S'more Recipe - 
*Roasted Marshmallows (try not to burn!) 
*Chocolate Bars
*Graham Crackers 

From my Mom Gloria: 
"I saw one on the Today Show.. Chef put two Chocolate Chip Cookies around them instead of the traditional graham crackers with the huge marshmallows and chocolate bars, then grill them in foil.  Here's the link to the video - oh yum - Throw This on the Grill! 

 From Karla:  
"We like to use flavored marshmallows, cookies (especially soft home made sugar cookies) & any flat candy bar. We especially like oatmeal raisin cookies with home made marshmallows & peanut butter cups. It sounds odd but tastes yummy. "
From Joe:
"Use chocolate chip cookies instead of graham crackers, or use the cinnamon grahams for a different flavor. Always can use flavored chocolate bars for something new too!"

 Wouldn't it be fun to create a S'mores "Bar" for your next campfire?   Here's a few of my ideas - what do you think??   What would you add to the list??
*Hot Fudge Sauce
*Caramel Sauce
*Peanut Butter
*Nilla Wafers
*Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
*Nutella
*sugar cookies
*Gooey Mints
*chocolate chips
*butterscotch chips
*white chocolate bars

Triple Layer Mint S'more Brownies
makes about 16
adapted from Martha Stewart 
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup cocoa
4 oz butter
8 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups mini marshmallows
25 mini peppermint patties
Preheat the oven to 350.
Melt the chocolate and butter together over very low heat on the stove. Remove and whisk in the eggs. Add the flour, cocoa, salt and sugar and mix well to combine.
Line a nine by thirteen inch baking pan with tin foil. Butter the foil (really butter it!) and then pour half of the brownie batter in the pan. Arrange peppermint patties over top and then spread the remaining batter over top, smoothing it out with a palate knife.
Bake for 45 minutes and then sprinkle marshmallows over the top. Broil for two to five more minutes, until the marshmallows are lightly browned and gooey.
Let cool for AT LEAST an HOUR before attempting to cut.
