This past weekend we went camping and were making our shopping list and knew we needed to get stuff for s'mores. You know, those ooey-gooey insanely messy dessert sandwiches we all know and love. If you haven't heard of them, then I HOPE you have at least seen the movie The Sandlot where Ham Porter famously quotes:
"First you take the graham, you stick the chocolate on the graham. Then you roast the 'mallow. When the 'mallows flaming... you stick it on the chocolate. Then cover with the other end. Then you scarf. Kind of messy, but good!"
No matter if you know them and love them, we can all agree that, as Ham says, they are "kinda messy." So we decided to take this concept into the kitchen for some innovation and we successfully eliminated the mess. Our first take on it was our S'more Ice Cream Cups which are fantastic in combining all the great smore flavors, but minimizing mess and adding a great texture.
This camping trip, however, presented us with another difficulty: portability. So, back to the drawing board, we came up with S'more Bites. Simple combo of all the ingredients you know and love in your S'mores, just in a bar form and ready to eat on the go, at the camp site, or in the kitchen before they even leave the mixing bowl (or that's just me).
We are going to keep this one crazy simple: Melt the mallow's with the butter, add in the golden grahams, then add in the chocolate chips. Seriously, nothing you do will be better or worse as long as they all end up in a melty gooey concoction.
Once they have all been mixed, lay them into a large baking pan you have sprayed with Pam or rubbed down with melted butter or some form of oil (helps them not stick). I would say "let cool before cutting" but seriously, just dive into them. Cut them into small pieces or leave in the sheet. Use a sharp knife to cut them into small squares and enjoy! Also, to see the S'more bites in action, check out our Camping Trip to Taconic State Park where we kept it gourmet and made some great food in the outdoors.
