S’Mores are a summertime favorite filled with ooey, gooey goodness.
Today, we’re going to take the S’More and give it a fruity twist.
Check it out!
What You Need
- Large Marshmallows
- Graham Crackers
- Squares of Milk Chocolate
- Thin Slices of Strawberry
- Wooden Skewer or Fork
Step #1 – Remove the stem from the strawberry. Slice thinly. Set aside.
Step #2 – Take a graham cracker and break it in half.
Step #3 – Break the chocolate to fit the graham cracker.
Step #4 – Place the chocolate on one graham cracker square. Set aside.
Step #5 – Stick a fork or skewer into the marshmallow (about half way down).
Step #6 – Toast the marshmallow over a fire or hot burner until it is toasty, brown, and soft.
Be careful not to burn yourself.
Step #7 – Carefully push the marshmallow onto the graham cracker with the chocolate.
Step #8 – Place the sliced strawberries on top of the marshmallow.
Step #9 – Top with second graham cracker. Push down so the chocolate begins to melt.
For an added twist on this fruity S’More try using fresh raspberries, sliced grapes, or even a dollop of peanut butter. Instead of squares of chocolate, try a cocoa spread such as Nutella.
