Have you seen these build your own s’mores bars that have been popping up lately?
The idea is really simple. You start with your basic s’mores ingredients and then, add in a few extras, like almond butter and peanut butter cups. When you’re ready to serve, you place all the components on a tray or platter and allow guests to build their own s’mores.
My smallest guest likes her marshmallows untoasted and all the components separate.
It’s a fun way to spend an evening and requires zero cooking – unless you count toasting the marshmallows.
In ours, I used:
- Sliced strawberries
- Sliced bananas
- Almond butter
- Peanut butter
- Cookies and cream chocolate bars
- Milk chocolate bars
- Peanut butter cups
But, really, you could customize this any way you like. I think jams, raspberries and dark chocolate would also be wonderful additions.
What’s your favorite way to eat a s’more?
*FYI, the caramels didn’t work as well as I liked. Next time, I’d try caramel sauce.
Feminine and very ladylike, these egg salad toasts would be perfect for Mother’s Day or a spring Brunch. We had ours this year at Easter. I had originally made half the amount shown here, but quickly doubled it on the spot, because we ate all of them and everyone (except for Ellie) wanted more. Although…
I have a history with romesco sauce. Smoky and complex, I love the flavor combinations of roasted red peppers, smoked paprika, garlic and vinegar. If you haven’t had it before, I can’t recommend it enough. It’s guaranteed to up your basic, weeknight chicken by a thousand percent. As Ellie would say, “for real life.” So,…
I made this pear, goat cheese and pistachio crostini for Thanksgiving this year, but according to an old friend, I served something like this for a book club many, many years ago. I’m so glad she reminded me about the combination, because it is delicious, and I had completely forgotten about it. (which sadly happens all…
Pork chops are a staple at our house for a lot of reasons. First, and most importantly, we all think they are delicious – especially Ellie. But, they have two other attributes that put them in regular rotation at our house – they are inexpensive and cook quickly. When it comes to making pork chops,…
Part guacamole, part deviled egg, this appetizer is addictive. Make them knowing they will be eaten in minutes. Simple to create, the hardest part is peeling the hard boiled eggs. But, I promise it will be worth the effort. They will be a huge hit at your next tailgate or watch party. Plus, you can…
