S'mores

Materials

  • 8 sheets honey graham crackers
  • One 4.4-ounce bar milk chocolate, such as Hershey's, broken into 8 pieces
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • 8 large marshmallows

Preparation

This recipe outlines how to make s'mores over a charcoal or gas BBQ but you can also do this with a small open fire or fire pit in the backyard as well. Serves 8.

Heat a grill to medium-low heat. (The heat coming from a dying charcoal grill or a gas grill cooling down will also work well.)Halve each graham cracker sheet crosswise into 2 squares. Working with 1 or 2 s'mores at a time, place a square of graham cracker on a piece of foil and top with a portion of chocolate and a pinch of kosher salt. Place on the edge of the grill just until the chocolate is warmed and softened, about 30 seconds.

Take the graham cracker squares and chocolate to your grill (as the marshmallows toast they will become soft and start to droop off the skewer). Working with a few at a time, skewer a marshmallow on a long fork or metal skewer and hold over the heat about 2 inches above the grates. Toast, turning occasionally, until the marshmallow puffs and turns golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes.

Using the square of graham with the chocolate and a plain graham square, place the marshmallow on the chocolate and, using the plain graham, squish the marshmallow down and pull off the skewer. Eat while it is warm and gooey and perfect.
