Smores Part 2

Alright, so you’ve got your graham crackers covered with marshmallow and some extras that you’ve been munching on, delicious right?  Now you can set those extras out as a little snack for your littles, but save a couple for garnishing your smores.  These cookies are great, but, in the interest of full disclosure, they look a little like poo on a cracker once dipped in chocolate, so sprinkle some graham cracker crumbs over the top 😉 .

Let’s get to work! Set your oven to broil on low, place your marshmallow topped crackers in the oven and stay put.  My marshmallow took about 5 minutes to toast.  Yours might take longer or shorter, either way, keep an eye on the toasting process so that they don’t burn to a crisp.

Once toasted, set your crackers on drying racks placed over baking sheets and get to work on your chocolate.  I prefer a dark chocolate, but if that really throws you off, milk chocolate is fine…

Using a block of chocolate is ideal when needing lots of chocolate. Using a serrated knife on blocks of chocolate is the best way to break them down for melting.  Melting chocolate can be a pain, you want to melt it as quickly as possible, but not too hot so as not to burn the chocolate.  You can do this with the double broiler method or you can do it in the microwave, 30 second intervals.

Once the chocolate is completely melted,  pour it over the cookies.  I’ve tried just dipping the cookie, but the pour over method works best.  After pouring the chocolate, gently wipe off the excess chocolate.  Scrape any of the excess chocolate back in to the bowl and reuse, no need to waste all that goodness.

After the cookies are coated, sprinkle crumbs over the cookies and set them in the fridge to harden.  Enjoy your smoke free smores!!
