Let's make S'mores at home!
To all of my Girl Scouts from Troop 739, or even if you are not a Girl Scout, enjoy making one of our traditional desserts. Usually these are made by a campfire, we are going to learn to make them a bit differently.
With Covid-19 happening, we were unable to have our traditional campout, but that should not stop you from having a campfire favorite at home. Parents, please supervise you child in this process please.
These are the ingredients you will need and an oven:
Place your oven on 350 degrees. Parents please help them.
Line a cookie tray with foil, the marshmallow's can get quite gooey.
Break your graham cracker in half, unless you purchase the individually wrapped cookies that are already in half.
Make sure that you have an even number of crackers, because one will be the top and the other the bottom.
On one half of the crackers, place a marshmallow. On the other half, place your piece of chocolate. To make it more interesting, you can use any type of chocolate you want, chocolate and caramel is also delicious. Chocolate with peanuts is also yummy.
Place in the oven carefully, but make sure it does not cook for more than 10 minutes. You want you marshmallow and chocolate to melt.
Have a parent help you get it out of the oven.
With a flat spatula, flip the cracker that has the chocolate onto the cracker with the marshmallow.
Give it a little squish so that the chocolate and marshmallows bond together.
Yum, you are ready to eat them. This is a good recipe to make when you have friends over.
Another way to make these:
Same ingredients, but instead of the oven, if you know that mom or dad with be barbequing outside. You can add this to the grill, towards the end of the food they are making.
Place your ingredients together, so that it looks like a s'more.
With a piece foil, wrap your s'more carefully into the foil. One per each piece of foil.
Place on the grill for about 10 minutes or if you think the chocolate and marshmallow's have melted.
After you eat your meal, you will unwrap your foil treat.
One more way to do this at home is you do not want to make a hot s'more, is to use your graham cracker and chocolate ingredients and use the spreadable marshmallow mix.
You can microwave your ingredients but I have found that it is just not the same.
Just to change it up, you should try it during Girl Scout cookie season; thin mint s'mores, samoa s'mores and tagalong s'mores are so yummy!
I do hope that you create your s'mores and if you do, please send me photos of your creations.
Remember, when making these delicious treat, we always leave our space cleaner than we found it.
Love and world peace to my Girl Scouts, and do a turn daily, Ms. Ida
