S'mores are associated with recreational camping. Part of the enjoyment of this simple dessert is the way in which it is made on such camping trips. A marshmallow is skewered on the end of a long stick (or metallic skewer) and held just above a campfire until its outer surface starts to brown. Once heated, the inside of the marshmallow becomes soft or molten. The marshmallow is quickly pinched off its stick with the waiting graham crackers, one of which has a piece of chocolate on it. Ideally, the heat from the roasted marshmallow partially melts the chocolate.
Now if you don't have a culinary torch you can make these easily in your oven (even a toaster oven). Just place the graham cracker squares topped with the chocolate and marshmallow on a baking sheet.
Now here's a great variation of S'mores that I found even more delicious! This is also a great way for those who may be allergic to chocolate (like I am, though I still eat it), to enjoy S'mores!
These are called "Strawberry Shortcake S'mores", but I really don't see a connection with Strawberry Shortcake.
Just replace the Hershey's chocolate with some white chocolate chips or white chocolate candy-making wafers (Found at cake supply shops and craft stores), and add some fresh strawberries!
Top each graham square with the white chocolate chips or wafers, then a marshmallow.
Just like above, place them in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 5 minutes. While they're in the oven, thinly slice the strawberries.
When they come from the oven, immediately top with 3 slices of strawberry and the other graham square and enjoy! These are heaven!!
