Indoor S’Mores

Indoor S’Mores

I vote to elect February as the cruelest month, no matter what T.S. Eliot may have thought (he proposed April). Here in the Northeast we may get spring-teaser days–like today at 57 degrees–but we know that the bitter cold will keep coming back to bite us at least until April. So we get clever. We start hatching little schemes to convince ourselves that we really aren’t cabin-bound for another two months. We force bulbs and branches, we unearth our warm-weather clothes, we have indoor picnics. And we make s’mores–because we know that you don’t have to be sitting around a summertime campfire to enjoy them. February may be cruel, but simple pleasures make it bearable. Here’s a grown-up s’more recipe from Eating Well to help dodge the winter doldrums.

2 whole graham crackers, broken in half
4 marshmallows
2 tablespoons bittersweet chocolate chips, melted (see Tip)

1. Position oven rack in the upper third of the oven; preheat broiler.

2. Place graham cracker halves on a baking sheet; top each with 1 marshmallow. Broil, with the oven door ajar and watching carefully, until the marshmallows are golden brown, 45 to 75 seconds. Remove from the oven and drizzle each S’more with a little melted chocolate.

Tip
To melt chocolate: Microwave on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on Medium in 20-second intervals until melted, stirring after each interval. Or place in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water. Stir until melted.

How does Care 2, which is so focused on improving our health, promote eating sugar-laden foods? Sugar is now recognized as being at least as unhealthy as tobacco (see Dr. Mercola's latest articles on this). It is important that we solve our addiction to this chemical. Sugar is not a food, as the definition of 'food' includes 'nutritive value.' As a society we act like it is a food group. Actually it is a dangerous additive.

I haven't tried them (not a marshmallow fan), but you can get vegan marshmallows here:

Yes. Marshmallows aren't vegetarian, since they contain gelatin. Any good replacements?

We've been making s'mores for years in the fireplace... I am american, but my son is swiss and he loves showing his swiss buddies what to do with chocolate!

Yummy. Love smores. You can also wrap smores in foil and heat for a few minutes in a warm oven or on a grill if you like to snow-b-q., or on warm oven burners. We would do that when I lived in South Lake Tahoe (Sierra Nevada Mountains). Our winter weather was similar to back east, just drier air. It did cheer things up.

Has anyone ever tried to do s'mores with vegan marshmallows?
