Despite my busy summer calendar, and the array of places I’ve been lucky enough to explore each weekend, it’s been killing me that I have yet to spend any time at a cottage (hoping to change that this weekend!) I spent every childhood summer swimming in freezing cold lake water by day and building great big campfires by night, and now no summer feels officially complete without a little taste of the cottage. So this week I decided to fake it a little, trading a campfire for my stove top but definitely not tampering with the classic combo of graham crackers, marshmallows and melted chocolate. This recipe (which makes about 8 bars) may cause you a little bit of a mess, but is actually super simple and so. very. worth it.
– 16 graham crackers
– 2 cups mini marshmallows
– 1 tbsp butter
– 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
– drop butter into a small pot and set on medium heat.
– when butter is melted, add marshmallows and melt until smooth, remove from heat and set aside.
– using a double boiler (in my case a glass mixing bowl over a small pot of boiling water), melt chocolate chips until smooth and set aside.
– line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set down 8 of the 16 graham crackers.
– spoon a good amount of marshmallow on to each cracker and cover with remaining 8 crackers to create little sandwiches – don’t stress if they ooze out the sides, oozing is half the fun!
– pop marshmallow sandwiches in the freezer for 10-15 to solidify marshmallow layer.
– remove from freezer and dip half way into melted chocolate one by one
– lay them back on the parchment paper and pop back in the freezer until chocolate is hardened (about 10 – 15 minutes)
– eat right away or store in freezer for up to 3 days (remove from freezer and allow to defrost slightly before serving, about 15 minutes at room temperature).
