View Full Version : Super S'Mores
04-22-2007, 01:47 PM
Thought I would share the new variation on the old classic that I made last night by the firepit. Secret number one it that I always use 2 marshmallows to sandwich the chocolate and make it melt better. Secret number two is that I rarely use just plain chocolate. My old standby is to use a Reeses instead of the Hershey bar. Last night though, we also made them using Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies. They even smelled minty! Quite heavenly they were. Hmmmm. Maybe next time I will try a Peppermint Patty.
Any other suggestions out there? Firepit season is upon us.....

My personal favorites are a square of Caramello for the chocolate or a mini Milky Way bar. The only candy bar I haven't liked has been a Mounds bar, there isn't enough chocolate on that one.
Otherwise I've tried most of them, and yes, a Reese's PB Cup is very good. :) Special Dark is very good too.

Not sure where exactly I got this. We have tried just about all of them!

"Everyone loves the classic s'mores of childhood. But now that we're
older and have the patience to toast our marshmallows to a perfectly
crisp, tan shell and gooey interior (no carbonized sugar lumps for us,
please), we decided to sandwich them with these updated combinations."

Along the GS Cookies lines...we use Thanks A Lot cookies as our outer pieces (instead of the chocolate and graham crackers). They are much easier to manage while camping, since the cookies don't fall apart like graham crackers do.
I'm not sure if both GS cookie bakeries make Thanks A Lot, but they are large round shortbread cookie with chocolate on the bottom.
Just looked at Missindi's list - those Elvis S'mores sound awesome! We'll definitely be making those on our next campout!
