Not necessarily healthy, but one of my favorites, and not too high in calories if you just have one or two. Also, if you are around a grill, place the graham with the chocolate on it, so that the chocolate starts to get a little melty. S’mores: ideas to move beyond just the basic!
S’mores can be made over a gas stove top, in the fire pit at the beach, in a fireplace on a cold winter evening, or using the toaster oven (always with adult supervision).
Here are some ideas to move beyond just the basic:
Caramel: set your toasty marshmallow on a chocolate graham cracker and top it with a chocolate coated caramel drop and a spoonful of caramel sauce.
Snow White: push a few white chocolate chips into the center of a melting marshmallow, then sandwich them inside two vanilla wafers.
Peanut Butter Delight: place a marshmallow and a mini peanut butter cup between two fudge-striped cookies.
Coconut Dream: set your toasty marshmallow on a shortbread cookie and top it with toasted coconut.
Mint kiss: Chocolate graham crackers and Andes mints with the toasty marshmallow
PB&J: grahams, peanut butter, strawberry jam, and marshmallows
Or, PB&noJ: grahams, peanut butter, and toasty marshmallows
Campfire s’mores: Top the graham with a layer of p-nut butter and top with banana slices. Place the toasted marshmallow on top.
Some other substitution ideas:
|Cinnamon graham||Hershey’s Kisses||Homemade|
|Wheatmeal biscuits||Andes mints||Store bought|
|Chocolate wafer cookies||White chocolate||Coconut marshmallows|
|Low-fat honey graham crackers||Dark chocolate|
|My favorite: pre-wrapped Ghirardelli chocolates (and, they come in different flavors)|
