They’re the perfect snack to grab and go. The only part missing? The toasted marshmallow! Toasting marshmallows is my favorite part of making s’mores. There’s just one problem. It’s raining at this moment. It’s been raining for weeks. (I’m currently building an arc.) It’s not exactly s’mores weather. At least it’s not unless you bring the s’mores inside!
It’s totally easy. If you’re a s’mores fan, you’ll be a fan of making s’mores indoors. We’re not using the oven-that’s no fun. You’ll need the usual suspects: Hershey’s Bars, Honey Maid Graham Crackers and Jet-Puffed Marshmallows.
Make sure you grab enough Hershey’s Bars to feed the masses. There’s always someone who’ll grab a bar and eat it before you even open the marshmallows.
Honey Maid now has a Walmart exclusive package of square graham crackers that are perfect for s’mores. Sure, it’s a first world problem, but you know you’ve tried to break your graham crackers before and ended up with two uneven pieces. That’s no longer a problem! Of course marshmallows are a must. I love the Jet-Puffed s’mores marshmallows in a square shape. It gives a much more satisfying marshmallow-to-chocolate-and-graham-cracker ratio.
So most people would assemble some s’more and pop them in the oven if they were forced to make them indoors. Sure they’re tasty, but you’re missing out on the oh-so-satisfying toasting of the marshmallows. Trying to get the perfectly toasted marshmallow and blowing them out when they catch on fire is a rite of passage!
To get that same toasty fun indoors, you need a kitchen torch. Seriously, it’s one of the most fun gadgets you can have in your kitchen. And bonus, you can make crème brûlée once you own one. It’s win/win. And although you might be a little intimidated by having a propane torch in your house, I promise they’re easy to use. It’s also butane, just to split hairs. Use normal precautions and keep it out of the hands of little people. Load up your marshmallow on a bamboo skewer and toast. Carefully. This is amazingly fun at parties, too. Well, sober parties.
One of the things I always found a little annoying when I was making s’mores over a fire was not getting my Hershey’s Bar melty enough. The kitchen torch also solves that problem. You can give it a quick hit with the torch after you place it on the graham cracker and then load it up with your warm toasty marshmallow. Deliciously melty! Another option? Making a chocolate sauce to spread on your s’mores. Just break up a few Hershey’s Bars and melt with some milk or cream and drizzle on top of your s’mores.
