Reinventing the Recipe: S'mores Three Different Ways

June 20, 2014

Every summer my entire extended family would get together and spend the weekend camping in Southern Oregon.  The days were spent swimming in the river and catching crawfish and the night was dedicated to making s'mores.  The kids would skewer a few marshmallows on a stick and roast them until they were almost black.  We tucked the melted marshmallows between two graham crackers and a piece of Hershey's chocolate.  I cherish these memories and the taste of s'mores.

These days a campfire isn't readily available each summer but these dessert recipes are reminiscent of the classic s'mores flavors and take me back to those glorious summer evenings.

S'mores Ice Cream
Recipe from Cooking with Michele

When it's too hot to build a fire, s'mores ice cream is the next best option.  Homemade vanilla and chocolate ice cream are swirled together along with chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, and pieces of graham cracker.  You can also add in hot fudge and marshmallow fluff if you are feeling indulgent.

S'mores Tartlettes
Recipe from Une-Deux Senses

These s'mores tartlettes are the gourmet rendition of this humble camping dessert.  A buttery graham cracker crust is filled with chocolate ganache and topped with perfectly roasted marshmallows made possible with the use of a blow torch.

Loaded S'mores Bars
Recipe from Averie Cooks

These loaded s'mores bars will satisfy your insatiable craving for this classic campfire treat when one isn't nearby.  Similar to blondies, this brown sugar dough is studded with mini marshmallows, chocolate chips and graham cracker crumbs.  Soft and gooey, these bars are delicious for any occasion.
