Whether you're sitting around a lively campfire with family or relaxing around your backyard fire pit with friends, toasting s'mores is always a popular idea. As you probably know, a traditional s'more consists of a roasted marshmallow and chocolate sandwiched between two graham crackers. Traditional s'mores are delicious, but have you ever thought of putting a unique twist on a traditional s'more? This week, I've found several alternatives that are just as tasty as the traditional s'more recipe.
For these s'mores, you need a box of graham crackers and a bag of marshmallows, but instead of buying the traditional bars of milk or dark chocolate, get some chocolate candy that's filled with mint. York Peppermint Patties are an ideal choice for this s'more.
S'mores With Peanut Butter
If you're a fan of peanut butter, then this is the s'more recipe for you! Roast your marshmallows as usual and place them on a graham cracker followed by a peanut butter cup. Put the second graham cracker on top and watch as the gooey peanut butter and chocolate melts into the marshmallow. Mini and regular-sized peanut butter cups work well with this recipe.
S'mores With Bananas, Strawberries, or Both
Do you love the taste of bananas? If so, there's no reason to leave them out of your next batch of s'mores. In addition to the roasted marshmallow and chocolate on your graham cracker, add in a few slices of banana. This brings a sweeter taste to a s'more. Or, if you love strawberries, slice one or two and place them on the graham cracker with your marshmallows and chocolate. If you're feeling adventurous, put both strawberry and banana slices on your s'more. Yours will be the most colorful s'mores in the woods!
Bacon is a favorite food of many people, and the combination of smoky and salty and sweet is a surefire winner. Next time you make s'mores, put a slice of precooked bacon with your roasted marshmallow, chocolate, and graham crackers. Be sure to use precooked bacon so you know it is safe to eat.
You may like to cook with a camp skillet while taking a break in the great outdoors. If so, your skillet can help you enjoy s'mores in a whole new way. First, melt your marshmallows and chocolate in the skillet over the campfire. Next, pour the mixture into a bowl and dip your graham crackers into it. If you want, you can put the mixture into several individual bowls so everyone has their own. Delicious!
A Fun, Surprising S'more
Who says marshmallow Peeps are only welcome in an Easter basket? Make each of your s'mores using a marshmallow Peep instead of a plain, white marshmallow for a colorful, sugary twist. Peeps are sold online all year round.
