Smores Gone Wild

I don't trust my kids around a campfire, so we make our smores in the microwave. They are super-fast and super-easy and there are so many variations.

Basic Smores:
  1. Place a graham cracker square on a napkin or microwave safe plate.
  2. Place a large marshmallow on top.
  3. Nuke 10 seconds.
  4. Top with a square of chocolate and another graham cracker square.


Peanut Butter Cup Smores - Add a swipe of creamy peanut butter to the top cracker. The residual warmth from the marshmallow will melt the chocolate and the peanut butter together. mmmm...maybe Reese's should consider adding marshmallows to their candies...

Fluffer Nutter Smores - Graham crackers, marshmallow, peanut butter, and banana slices (chocolate optional).

Dark Chocolate Raspberry - Change out the plain milk chocolate for a Dove Dark Chocolate promise and add a swipe of raspberry jelly

Double-Stuffed Smores - Chocolate graham crackers with marshmallow and white chocolate

Chocolate Orange Smores - Chocolate graham crackers, marshmallow, orange marmelade

Turtle Smores - Chocolate graham crackers, marshmallow, pecan halves (stick them into the hot marshmallow to keep them from falling out),  a square of chocolate, and a thin swipe of caramel ice cream topping on the top graham.

You tell me: what kinds of smores do you like?
