My husband and I enjoy exploring new neighborhoods on the weekends, and by explore, I mean walk around and eat a lot of food.
A few weeks ago, we spent an afternoon walking around Bay Ridge. It’s a somewhat remote neighborhood in Brooklyn that’s only served by one subway line. We weren’t sure what to expect, but we really loved it.
There were so many delicious looking restaurants – everything from Middle Eastern to Greek to Italian – that I’m already plotting my return. Of course, we had to check out a couple places. One of our stops was Paneantico Bakery, where the displays cases were filled with beautiful pastries. I had an amazing berry cream tart that I couldn’t wait to recreate once I got home.
My husband and I went out to eat recently, and for dessert, we were served s’mores. It was so much fun roasting marshmallows at our table, getting our fingers sticky, and dropping crumbs everywhere. We were laughing the whole time!
I decided to try my hand at making s’mores at home, too. Indoor s’mores are super easy to make and are perfect for serving at a party or just on a snowy night at home with the family.
- graham crackers
- Reese’s peanut butter cups
- dark or milk chocolate candy bar (I used Lindt 85% Cocoa Extra Dark)
- chocolate and salted caramel candy bar (I used Ghirardelli Dark & Sea Salt Caramel)
- skewers for roasting marshmallows
Indoor s’mores are pretty self-explanatory to make. You will need a flame. I used a gas stove burner, but you could also roast your marshmallows in a fireplace or over a sterno fuel can or a mini hibachi (affiliate links*). The restaurant we ate at used a mini hibachi.
On to the fun … place your marshmallow on your skewer (we used bamboo, but metal would be better) and roast over your flame. For a gas burner, use medium-low heat.
When the marshmallow is cooked, sandwich it between graham crackers with your favorite chocolate. We used peanut butter cups, dark chocolate, and a salted caramel chocolate bar. Yum!
How do you like your marshmallows: perfectly golden or a little charred?
