I know, I know. S'mores are great because to eat them you have to go camping, which involves a lot of physical exertion- from setting up the tent to hiking to chopping firewood- you earn those s'mores, by golly!
So I hate to set a dangerous precedent here, but last night I made s'mores on the stove. And they were so good.
I'm going to say this right now, so you don't kid yourself into thinking that because just about everything else I cook is a pretty healthy meal, these must be good for you too...nope. Not even a little bit. Health Canada does not want you to eat these as part of a healthy, balanced diet.
4 Graham Wafers (I used Honey Maid- brand name ones taste so much better than off brand)
12 mini marshmellows (I used store brand and they're just fine)
4 squares of chocolate (caramel, dark, almond, whatever you like)
Turn a cast-iron pan on higher heat on your stove. While that's heating, lay out a square of foil. Put down a graham wafer. Position mini marshmellows and chocolate. Top with a second graham wafer. Wrap in foil, turn the heat down to low, and place packet in pan. Pick up and flip over in a couple of minutes. Leave another 2-3 minutes, until the packet "squishes" when prodded. Remove from heat, open the packet, and enjoy.
I know you don't get the burnt marshmellow taste that everyone except me loves...but you also don't make that much of a mess and they taste great. I always found traditional s'mores with the regular marshmellows a bit too sweet for my taste. These balance out the taste for me.
So what do you think?
