Toasty Campfire Treats

These Homemade Smashing S'mores Provide Bitesize Marshmallow Goodness

— July 22, 2011 — Lifestyle
Baking in the summertime can often be a grueling and sweaty task, but thankfully, this delicious recipe for Homemade Smashing S'mores does not require the use of an oven. What looks like an irresistible chocolate truffle topped with something delicious is in fact a unique s'more recipe.

The recipe for Homemade Smashing S'mores is ridiculously easy to make and will certainly impress anyone lucky enough to score a taste. By breaking apart a graham cookie, plopping a marshmallow on top of it and submerging the combo into melted chocolate chips, you have completed three of the four tasks required for creating this traditional toasty treat. The last step requires you to sprinkle some crushed graham crackers on top and simply wait for the treats to cool. These Homemade Smashing S'mores are the ideal treat for summer as they are less messy but certainly just as enjoyable as an original s'more.
