Stop Everything!

Ok, fellow blogger 'Pretty Far West' left me a note in my last posting regarding the s'mores. She doesn't know what they are. This was shocking to me. I ask you..are s'mores a North American thing?
Here is a quick how to make and how bake a s'more for you folks in Ireland. S'mores, for those of you not in the know, is slang for "I want some more". Now that I have said that it makes me think perhaps it is a North American thing. We are lazy and combine as many words as we can to save making idle chatter. lol. See.
Buy a box of graham crackers, a bag of marshmallows (jet if you can find them) and a big big bar of milk chocolate. Find a stick. Stick marshmallow on end of stick. Hold marshmallow over fire. Here is where the choice is yours - you can 1. slowly roast the marshmallow till golden brown. 2. Let the marshmallow catch on fire, when it goes out, it's done.
Remove marshmallow from stick, place on top of a graham cracker. Stick a piece of chocolate on top of marshmallow. Stick another graham cracker on top of chocolate. Voila. You're done.
As I had a rain storm occur during our roast - I simply stacked the trio of treats on top of each other and baked them in the oven for about 6 minutes. Made the chocolate more melty.

They look yummy and perfect for children to help with. This'll shock you, but we don't know what graham crackers are here either. 'Graham' over here is a typical name for a well brought up young gentlemen with good marriage prospects. However, by the power of Google I'll find out and source an alternative. Thanks for the recipe!

I always wondered what s'mores were too (I'm in England) - thanks for clearing it up! I also will need to find out what Graham crackers are....:)

Well, how do you like that. Graham is a nice cracker and nice young gentleman. S'mores are a very North American treat. Great to make when camping as well. Eating more than one can be a little dangerous if you have a sensitive stomach though!
