    Smores are soo good! Melted chocolate on graham crackers and a toasted to perfection marshmallow!

    Usually do this over a big fire so hot you have to shield your face and make a game of lets not get burnt by it. Three burning logs would probably work, but why use three if you can pile up 30, cook some meat and sear your face pink too!
    Right now thinking of a way to make a hot plate so I can balance the cracker with chocolate on top, and have it toasted and pre melted prior to the addition of the hot hot not quite burnt mellow for sugary goodness.

    But on a more city note, has anyone done this over a gas stove? Would that be a disaster in the making?

    Quote:Best way is certainly the big bonfire, but we've been doing them over the coals of our chimnea on the deck. They taste almost as good. And we found chocolate marshmallows at the local grocery store. Decadent! Don't have a gas stove but it sure sounds like it could get messy. I have a friend who makes them in the microwave. Hardly the same, but sometimes you're desparate, ya know?

    they are hands down my fav treat. I have done mine in the microwave and it works really well. I just let my marshmellow go for a few seconds and watch it to make sure it is not getting over done than put my piece of chocolate on when I take it out. I let it sit for a second to let things melt and vola nice easy smore. I have never tried on over a gas stove though.

    My youngest thought he would try stove routine one morning for breakfast to surprise me.......boy, was I surprised that one marshmallow would make such a mess [​IMG]. On the other hand try to explain the concept of a nicely browned toasty marshmallow to 30 pyromaniac cub scouts. I get my blackened...lol.

    My kids love s'mores. They are always making them for late night snacks to watch TV munching.

    I've done them over bonfires and in the broiler of an electric stove. Seems like the flame on a gas stove would be... I dunno, gassy? But I've never tried it.

    For melting the chocolate.... we were at a beach fire pit that was octagonal when I discovered that you could balance the graham cracker with the chocolate on it on the corner of the metal around the fire pit so it would get melty. YUM!

    Must create opportunity to eat smores very soon...
