Indoor S'mores

We are on a 4-day mini get-away this weekend.  I brought supplies to make S'mores with the kids - did you know that Campfire makes a "giant roaster" marshmallow that is the size of a lemon?  They are insanely enormous. 

Personally, I'm ho-hum about s'mores; I think it's a fun idea but it seems that my marshmallow is always over or underdone, the chocolate doesn't melt enough and then there is the fuss of actually having to build an open fire to roast the marshmallows.  Last night it was stifling hot so my SIL introduced me to a new version of s'more making. Read on at your own risk - they are addictive and now you can have them ANYTIME you want.

Take 1 graham cracker square (half a rectangle), put it on a plate and top with a marshmallow. Microwave for 20 seconds. Remove and place 1/2 of a Hershey bar on top of the marshmallow and then top with the other graham cracker square.  That's it!  Now brace yourself.

It's ooey, gooey decadence. I actually like the flavor of the marshmallow better - don't miss the smokey flavor at all. The chocolate is completely melted and the graham cracker is crisp. Oh my, this is really much too convenient for me. Dangerously convenient.

I'll put the chocolate in the micro too. Just to be sure. Then again I think I only leave it in for 15 seconds max.
