Campfire S'mores (Aka Robinson Crusoes)

Recipe by Debber
READY IN: 2mins
YIELD: 1 s'more




  • Break cracker in half (the short way); set one aside for the top.
  • Spread peanut butter on one cracker, set the candy piece on that and press gently.
  • Roast the marshmallow over the WARMTH of a campfire (do NOT burn--it will not achieve the proper squishiness required for a PROPER s'more). Watch for the 'shmallow to swell up and get puffy looking.
  • While still on the roasting stick, lay marshmallow on top of the chocolate, use the reserved cracker to hold the 'shmallow; pull the stick out, pressing down with the cracker.
  • Viola! If you roasted the marshmallow properly, there should be a bit oozing out around the edges.
  • OPTIONS: Instead of chocolate grahams, you can use regular ones or cinnamon/sugar ones. OR try fudge-stripe cookies or chocolate chip or even GINGERsnaps!
  • ALTERNATIVE COOKING METHOD: Prepare everything up to the roasting marshmallow step. Place marshmallows on a plate, pop in the microwave for about 10 seconds (REALLY!)--watch carefully as you don't want them to explode (messy, messy!). Lift carefully with a spoon and set on the chocolate piece, top with the lid -- careful--the marshmallow can be quite hot!
  • EASY CLEAN-UP: Bringing a box of crackers, a jar of p-butter and a knife AND the roasting sticks AND the bag of marshmallows can be a hassle--and in the dark, too yet! Instead, win your Martha Stewart "Organized Camper" certificate by putting everything into a cake pan and carrying it jauntily to the fire, say something like: "OOOh, look what good thing we'll be having tonight" -- and waggle your head in a knowing way. :rofl:
  • PROPER PRONUNCIATION: S'more is a contraction of the words Some More. Do not turn this into a German phrase by calling them "Schhhhmores." Nope. They are Ssss'mores. Thanks.
