We all love S’mores around the campfire. Some folks are just not patient enough to perfectly toast their marshmallows and build their own. Others just want to gobble up the Hershey Bars or eat the marshmallows cold.
Marshmallows are actually a marsh flower that grows in wetland marshes. Their flowers are pink or light blue and have fed native-peoples and pioneers for centuries. The picked flowers were heated and smashed into a sweet paste that was eaten with their fingers. This marshmallow paste was a sweet treat!
Marshmallows today can be found in a variety of sizes, colors, and flavors. They are made from artificial ingredients but have similar properties and taste.
Recently, Mrs. Montana Grant baked a new S’more Recipe that would make the original “Marshmallowers” proud.
You only need 4 ingredients.
*1 box of graham cracker squares
*1, 16 oz. bag of marshmallows
* 4 Hershey bars broken into small pieces
* 1 stick of melted butter
Spray a 9×13 inch baking pan, or dutch oven, with a non-stick spray. This recipe can easily be made over a campfire or camp stove. The marshmallow bars also store well in an ice chest or frig.
Break up the graham crackers into small pieces and place in a mixing bowl. Break up the Hershey bars and keep separate. Combine the butter and all but 1/3rd of the marshmallows in a heated pot. Stir until melted and remove from the heat.
Add the graham cracker pieces and stir. Now add the chocolate pieces and remaining marshmallows. Stir to mix and press into the baking dish and allow them to cool! Cut into squares or bars and enjoy!
You will be amazed at how simple, tasty, and quick this recipe is. Personally, I still enjoy the toasting of the marshmallows, but these will do in a pinch! You can also modify the recipe to make it your own. Maybe a little chocolate syrup, a cupcake wrapper, some whip or icing…just saying!
Munch, munch, munch!!!!!
