I’ve always been fascinated by S’mores. Although I never had them in my childhood, I discovered S’mores through old American movies, which of course made a lasting impression on me and led me to believe the following:
- They are often consumed while camping in the woods with a group of friends
- You have to cook them on a high flame to darkener the outside of the marshmallows
- The traditional recipe includes the use of a particular type of crackers named “Graham”
- You should preferably use the Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bars
Now that I live in the United States, I decided to go ahead and try to recreate this recipe in my kitchen, because I’ve never been the type of person to go camping. Therefore, I grabbed my pack of marshmallows and tried to cook them on the kitchen stove, but I suddenly realized that the process wasn’t as simple as the movies made it to be. After a few attempts, I started to lose hope and blamed my failures to the non-familiarity I had with this recipe, as this was my very first time trying to cook them. I then sat back down and opened my laptop to find help on the internet, and after a few hours of researching, I finally came across what I was looking for; a recipe that teaches you a new way to cook them using the oven!!
These new recipes were perfect because now I could avoid spreading a strong burning smell all over my kitchen. As usual, I couldn’t leave the recipe as it was, so I added my special touch by putting tufts of colored cotton candy and giving them a fairy appearance 🙂 Enjoy!
- 6 Graham crackers
- A pack of Marshmallow (choose the size you want)
- Hershey’s chocolate bar (if you can’t find them you can use any other brand)
- Cotton candy
- Preheat oven in grill mode to 350 degrees
- Cut the crackers in half and place them on a baking tin
- Place a marshmallow on top of each cracker
- Cook in oven until the marshmallows are toasted.
- Now, take the baking tin out the oven and place the chocolate on top while they are still hot to melt it.
- At last, add the cotton candy and close them using the other half of the crackers.
