S'mores

Did you know you can make S'mores in the microwave? Me neither. At least, not until I had the happy accident of noticing instructions for making S'mores in the microwave on the back of the graham cracker box when we went camping (not bringing S'mores when camping is like not bringing water).

It's shockingly easy and takes less than 10 seconds:

  1. Place 1/2 of a graham cracker on a microwave-safe plate.
  2. Place 1/4 of a Hershey's chocolate bar on top of the graham cracker.
  3. Place one regular-sized marshmellow on top of the chocolate.
  4. Place the other 1/2 of the graham cracker on top of the marshmellow.
  5. Place the entire contraption in the microwave, being careful not to upset it.
  6. Nuke for 4 seconds - WATCHING CAREFULLY. As soon as the marshmellow begins to swell up, open the microwave door and squish the contraption so the top graham cracker doesn't fall off. Rotate contraption a 1/4 turn, close microwave door and nuke another 4 or 5 seconds.
  7. Remove from microwave, squish, eat!

See? How easy is that?

OK,OK. Granted, you are robbed the pleasure of roasting the marshmellow, blowing it out when it catches on fire and eating soot, but if you're not going camping any time soon, it's a nice alternative to building a campfire on your patio.

Leastways, I think so!

Oooooooooooh - nummy!!!! I keep meaning to do this, as I've heard you could. Not the same as a toasted marshmallow but a reasonable sub. Actually I've heard you can toast the marshmallows over a stove burner - haven't tried it yet and could be dangerous, but might be worth it in a fix. Just don't burn the house down for love of sugar and chocolate!!!
