Better Than S’mores

Posted by on December 21, 2010

I know I always say that I hate cooking and such but listen up, folks, because I’ve made an amazing culinary discovery that is so easy a monkey could make it. They’re a lot like s’mores—but 10,000 times better because they’re not all sickeningly sweet.

Prepare to fall to your knees and kiss my feet in gratitude, people. Well, unless you eat too many and gain a bunch of weight—I can’t be  responsible for that—but because I care…repeat after me: “I will not eat too many of these even though they are awesome beyond all reason. I will practice self-control. Also? I will ONLY use these to bribe my kids when my sanity is truly on the line. Or I need them to stop beating the crap out of each other because black eyes will totally ruin our holiday photos”

Alright. Maybe I’m building this up a bit too much…but whatever. THEY ARE GOOD.What you need are Ritz crackers (regular or cinnamon sugar), semi-sweet chocolate chips and big marshmallows. Oh, and a toaster oven is helpful but I’m reasonably sure you could do these in a regular oven.

Preheat your oven to 350-ish and follow the instructions under these pathetic photos I took with my phone:

Put an even number of Ritz crackers on an baking pan (salt or sugar side up) and put five chocolate chips on each cracker.

Put marshmallow halves on half the crackers

Put baking pan in the oven and bake until marshmallows are golden on top. Watch them, though, because you don’t want to burn the crackers. Not that I would know anything about burning food. Ahem.

Take crackers with marshmallows on them and put on top of crackers with chips. Smush lightly and ENJOY!

That’s it. Easy peasy and nearly impossible to f*ck up. Unless you’re me ;)

The first person who makes these and sends me a photo of them will win something awesome. I don’t know what yet—and your idea of awesome and mine may widely differ but hey, you like to live on the edge, right? Okay then…send me a pic and let’s do this thang!
