It’s August in Georgia and while this summer has been very pleasant so far, I still didn’t relish the idea of building a fire to roast marshmallows for a Fancy S’mores post. With that in mind, I wondered what would happen if you put marshmallows in the oven. Would they roast? Would they explode? The answer is, they get really big and toasty and delicious – perfect for s’mores!
What makes these s’mores fancy, you ask? Twix, Snickers, Reese’s Cups, Kit Kats, and Mr. Goodbars! My friend Gwen introduced me to Fancy S’mores after she had them for her son’s 1st birthday. It was a simple idea that completely blew my mind and changed my s’mores shopping list forever. I guarantee that if you serve these around the camp fire, you will also blow your friends’ minds and be heralded as a visionary!
- 8 Large Graham Crackers, Broken in Half
- 8 Jumbo Marshmallows
- Your Favorite Chocolate Candy Bars – I use Reese’s Cups, Twix, Kit Kats, Mr. Goodbar and Snickers
- Preheat the oven to 375° and line a sheet pan with parchment paper
- Put the marshmallows on the pan and put in the oven for about 5 minutes. The marshmallows will expand and turn golden brown and delicious.
- Stack your Fancy Indoor S’mores thusly: Graham Cracker, Candy, Marshmallow, Graham Cracker
I haven’t tried it but I suspect that you can stack the s’more before putting it in the oven and cook the whole thing at once. Since it’s in the oven for such a short amount of time, the chocolate should warm up and get just a wee bit melty.
What to do with a ton of leftover marshmallows? Freeze them of course! Make sure you divide them before freezing or you’ll have a huge wad of frozen marshmallows when you want to make s’mores.
Juliette Gordon Low founded the Girl Scouts of the USA in Savannah, Georgia in 1912 and has been building “girls of courage, confidence, and character” ever since. They’ve also built a s’more or two along the way…empowering the women of tomorrow requires refueling every once in a while.
