My husband is the s’mores king. He knows how to perfectly crisp up a marshmallow, likely has a method on how close the camping fork should be to the fire and his eyes practically roll back to the back of his head every time he bites into a pile of graham cracker, chocolate and marshmallow. I gladly give him the title because growing up, s’mores weren’t my thing. They are now, but my liking doesn’t even come close to his obsession.
We made s’mores a couple of weeks ago with our kids and of course, they are big fans too. While we were eating them, I mentioned wanting to spice up our next s’mores night with unique toppings. Hey – I’m a food blogger! It’s my thing to think out of the box. Not only did a get a death stare from my husband, but I also got a flat out, “NO”.
You see, he’s a jet-puffed, Hershey’s marshmallow guy and a die-hard s’mores traditionalist. You wouldn’t ever catch him mixing up his s’more ingredients. Side note: I get wanting the jet-puffed marshmallows, but Hershey’s — really?? Yuck.
His reaction to my brilliant idea didn’t phase me. He knew I was going to put whatever I wanted on my next s’more anyway. And off I went to food dreamland where I thought up this s’more. My s’more of s’mores. Sea salt and almond milk chocolate (you best believe I didn’t pick up Hershey’s), sliced strawberries and marshmallows.
I honestly couldn’t have come up with a better combo. You must try this s’more before summer is over. Heck, add a bunch of different ingredients to your s’mores! Make a DIY s’mores spread. If you end up making this recipe, don’t forget to tag #marinamakeseats
Chocolate, Almond & Strawberry S’mores
Makes six s’mores
- Six graham cracker sheets, each sheet broken in half to create 12 graham cracker squares
- 2-3 bars of sea salt and almond chocolate (milk or dark)
- 1 cup of sliced strawberries
- 12 large marshmallows
Using a stove burner or outdoor fire, cook marshmallows to desired crispiness and char.
To assemble each graham cracker, place one graham cracker square at the bottom, top with two to three chocolate squares, two melted marshmallows, three to four strawberry slices and top with a graham cracker square. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make five more s’mores.
