S’mores are a staple for any American Summertime BonFire. S’mores aren’t just reserved for the summer or a fire, they are everywhere. Poptarts, Granola Bars, Ice Cream and even Goldfish Crackers have all been influenced by this simple dessert.  The only real problem I’ve had with a S’more is eating one. They are a sticky, gooey mess… but obviously worth it!

As summer is just about to begin, I put together a S’mores assortment which includes a variety of chocolates and homemade elements of Graham Crackers and Marshmallows. In my opinion, the S’mores Experience just got a lot s’more interesting and fun!


The Graham Cracker Recipe from Jaques Torres:

1 1/2 Cups  Whole Wheat Flour

1/2 Cup of All-Purpose Flour

1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar

1/4 Cup Light Brown Sugar

1 tsp. Cinnamon

1 tsp. Baking Powder

1/2 Cup  Unsalted Butter

4-5 T.  Whole milk

1 T. Water

1/4 Cup Light Corn Syrup

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Combine Sugars, flours, baking powder, and cinnamon in a bowl and then work in the butter with your hands until it resembles a coarse meal, making sure the butter remains cold. Add half of the milk and work it into a dough. Add only the amount of liquid needed to hold the dough together. Kneed dough until smooth and chill for 1 hour. Roll out on floured surface to desired thickness (about 1/8 of  an inch). Cut into pieces (used a fluted pastry cutter), score with a fork and brush each piece with the water/syrup mixture. Bake until they become deep golden brown.

The Marshmallows were especially fun to make, and were a lot lighter in texture than their store-bought friends. Gelatin, Sugar, and Egg Whites are the main ingredients that comprise  a Marshmallow, and then let set in a mold or pan! That’s really it.
