How to Make A S’more (Smore)

If you love eating dessert, you should consider adding s’mores (smores) in your list. I learned from my niece this food and I consider it as one of the simplest and easiest to prepare yet it can satisfy my cravings.

Graham cracker, marshmallow and chocolate (your choice) are the only ingredients you need to make a delicious s’more. I didn’t know that there is National S’mores Day that is celebrated yearly on August 10 in the United States.

Here is my first S’more and for sure this won’t be the last.

How to prepare

1. Break the graham cracker in half. Put chocolate bar (like Hershey’s) on top of cracker,  or instead of chocolate bar you can put nutella.  Then add one big marshmallow on top of the chocolate bar. Cover it with half of graham cracker.

2. Microwave it for about 10-15 seconds or until the marshmallow starts getting bigger and melts. If you don’t have microwave, you can use oven. Just be careful with the time because it could burn the graham cracker. I suggest 1-2 minutes or until marshmallow melts.

If we have Nutella in the house I always make crepe. My nieces love my homemade crepe and of course my daughter. How I wish Nutella is cheap so we could afford and do crepe everyday. Anyway, here is simple crepe recipe from http://allrecipes.com/recipe/basic-crepes/.

Ingredients
1 cup flour
2 eggs
½ cup milk
½ cup water
¼ tsp salt
2 tbsp melted butter

For Filling
Banana
Nutella

1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs. Gradually add in the milk and water, stirring to combine. Add the salt and butter; beat until smooth.
2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.
3. Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side. Serve hot.
