My world was rocked this morning!  

Life for me changed forever after Yvonne knocked on the door and presented me with a item she had just created...an open faced s'more.

Usually making s'mores, while easy to construct, also takes a lot of work.  You have to build a good strong fire, wait for the coals to be just right, find the perfect stick and roast your marshmallows over the coals without burning them...(unless you like them that way).  The idea is the hot marshmallow melts the chocolate, but it doesn't always happen that way...then you bite on them and the marshmallow goes squirting out the other side. 


Now you can have S'mores any time you want rain or shine and Yvonne showed me how she did it.


Ingredients:

Jet Puffed Marshmallow Creme
Graham cracker
Hershey mini bars







Take a small, bite sized Hershey bar, break it into pieces on top of a graham cracker square then pop it into the microwave for about 30 seconds or until its melty enough to spread around the cracker.  








Next, take a spoonful of marshmallow cream, plop it on top of the melted chocolate and graham cracker.  At this point, chef Yvonne takes her food torch and browns the top. 


For some reason, even though the basic ingredients are the same, this open faced s'more (no cracker on top) tastes more decadent than any s'more you've ever had.





If I were to make them for a group, (or if you don't have a food torch handy, lol)  I would probably melt all the chocolate together, spread it on each cracker and place them on a cookie sheet.  Next I'd put a dollop of the marshmallow on top, place the cookie sheet under the broiler for a few moments to toast them up and then serve immediately.

If you want to be a little fancier, put a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on the plate,
arrange the crackers around and garnish with a sprig of mint.  I think this would work if you broke the crackers into quarters and had like little S'mores fingers.  A little goes a long way.

Believe me.  Eye balls will roll when people taste these.  Don't ask me why they are so much more decadent than an original S'more...they just are.

Thanks Yvonne!
