Don't pretend you don't know what I'm talking about. The ones that tell you what flavor of ice cream you are and which Friday Night Lights character you're most like.
Making s'mores is a lot like taking one of those online quizzes. I can tell a heck of a lot about you by the way you make your s'mores. Let me elaborate.
- You shove your marshmallow into the fire and burn it to a crisp. You are a strong believer that marshmallows are one of the few foods that tastes better burnt. You hate waiting in lines, enjoy Chinese take-out food, and tend to be argumentative.
- You think you've mastered the s'more technique. You're Lord of the S'mores. You might be a dad and/or a camp counselor. You can be found whittling your perfect "s'more stick," or trying to assist a less capable s'more maker with this delicate art. People may call you a "busy-body." You enjoy team sports and activities, as long as you're the captain. You're secretly a horrible dancer.
- You like to sit on the edge of the fire and slowly turn your marshmallow -- waiting for that perfect, golden-brown glow. You play a musical instrument, enjoy crafts, and like long walks on the beach. You keep an agenda and your socks always match.
- You're a weirdo (and I say that in the best sense of that word. You do something wacky like catch the marshmallow on fire, and squish it (still ablaze) between the chocolate and graham crackers. You're a bit of a badass, but you secretly love to play Scrabble.
See? Didn't I describe your personality to a T? ;)
Ok, so maybe I should leave online quiz making to the professionals. But no matter how you toast your marshmallows, the classic s'more will always be an All-American crowd-pleaser.
Everyone from the varsity baseball team to Carly's dog walker couldn't get enough of these s'more bars. They're super easy, don't require an open fire and they don't burn your tongue. My favorite way to eat these bad-boys is to pop one in the microwave until the marshmallow puffs up and the chocolate gets all melty. I close my eyes, and eat it with a spoon. I can smell the campfire and pine trees of summer already...
How do you roast your marshmallow?
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
- 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix at a low speed until combined.
Divide dough in half and press half of dough into an even layer on the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread the crust with marshmallow creme. Sprinkle chocolate chips into a single even layer over the creme. Place remaining dough in a single layer on top of the fluff.
