Little Chef D has another fun recipe today! If you love to camp you probably love S’mores. This Sure Fire, No Fire S’mores is a great indoor Smore recipe. The ingredients are the same you take camping.
The graham crackers were broken in two and placed on a cookie sheet. You would think breaking the crackers in two would be easy, but those crackers want to break in different sizes very easily. Eventually 6 crackers were broken in two.
Little Chef D had fun topping the graham crackers with marshmellows. With the help of Little Chef A they wanted to make pretty flower designs with the marshmellows!
If you were smarter then I was you would have already anticipated the parchment paper catching on fire under the broiler. It was a duh moment for me. I was just trying to have an easy cleanup. I almost did this same thing a while ago when trying a new fish recipe. Luckily that time the edges of the paper just browned. This time however, Little Chef D was watching through the oven window when the marshmellows were just starting to brown. By the time we opened the door and reached for the pan there was a fire! I should have known better and used aluminum foil. It was a great lesson for my Little Chefs though. The fire alarm went off and we were able to talk about what we should do in the event of a real fire. They even got their shoes on and went outside in the freezing cold!
Take two, with aluminum foil, not parchment paper!
Little Chef D watched the marshmellows brown through the oven window again.
The chocolate was put on top, but it wasn’t melting from the heat of the marshmellows. We decided to put it back into the oven for a few seconds to help the chocolate.
The top cracker was put on top. I was still not convinced the chocolate was melted, but as the Little Chefs squeezed the top and bottom cracker together the chocolate dispersed all over the marshmellows.
Little Chef D especially loved the chocolate oozing out of the sandwich and falling on her plate because she was then able to dip her sandwich into it before taking a bite! All the Little Chefs were excited to make this again.
For my review, this is a great recipe for really young children. They can do most of it on their own. The only assistance required is putting the pan in and taking it out of the oven. As for taste, it is good but I missed the smoky taste from a real campfire.
