Our Mini Family: Deconstructed S'mores


Aug 1, 2014

Deconstructed S'mores


We're celebrating the beginning of August and the start of the end of the summer right: with a spin on a summer classic! We've taken the traditional s'mores recipe we all know and love as a summertime tradition, and made our own Our Mini Family spin on it! These "Deconstructed S'mores" are perfect for anyone at any age--and would be a great easy, fast dessert to bring to any end-of-summer cookout or pool party! 

Continue reading to grab the tutorial!

*Serves 4-6
Ingredients:
-12 graham crackers (24 individual squares)
-6 marshmallows
-3 cups of chocolate melt
-1 Ziplock freezer bag

Directions:
1. Separate the graham crackers into individual squares.
2. Melt chocolate (candy dips is fine) in microwave and heat in 15 seconds intervals to heat it without burning it. Continue to heat chocolate until velvety smooth. 
3. Dip graham crackers into chocolate melt and set aside to cool.
4. Place 1 marshmallow into freezer bag at the bottom corner. Heat in microwave for 10 seconds on medium and until it's melted (but not so much that both marshmallow and/or plastic bag is burnt).
5. Cut hole at small hole at the bottom corner, and use bag hole for frosting tip. Store right side up inside a cup until graham crackers are cooled and chocolate has hardened.
6. Once graham crackers are cooled, drizzle them with marshmallow melt.
7. Serve either warm or room temperature!

    1. Thank you, Karen! That is an awesome compliment--it was really hard to make the marshmallow spread to look "elegant," but I am glad you could see past that small flaw and get the concept I was going for! :D

  5. These sound and looks great. I love the idea of melting the marshmallow in the freezer bag and cutting corner to put marshmallow design on the cracker. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Sounds like a fun idea. We have a big joke in our house about deconstructed dishes - you know those jokes that only people in your family get and you say them at work for example, and nobody laughs! I've just shown this to my son who laughed out loud then said he thinks we should enjoy deconstructed s'mores tonight - I think I agree with him.

  11. Yum! These look so pretty. I wonder how they would taste with some peanut butter? Not your typical s'mores topping, but the thought is tempting me.... Thank you for linking at the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party. Hope to see you again next week.
