Memorial Day is coming up – and summer is right around the corner, which means treats should be fun and easy, right?
And these s’mores couldn’t be more that!
You know I love a good s’mores and these deliver – all you need are graham crackers, candy melts and marshmallows – and some decorative sprinkles, of course! Feel free to double or triple the quantities shown; this recipe scales up beautifully.
You can serve the crackers and marshmallows separately on a tray, or do as I did and create little bundles that guests can grab to create their s’mores! And talk about versatile – you can easily swap the graham crackers for a gluten-free version, and switch up the candy melts for any themed celebration (Halloween? Gender reveal? Christmas? S’mores know no season!).
12 graham crackers (regular or gluten-free)
1 cup red candy melts
1 cup blue candy melts
decorative sprinkles (I love these red white and blue star sprinkles)
Cut the graham crackers in half, for a total of 24 squares. For the neatest cuts use a serrated knife and a gentle sawing motion down the middle.
Melt the red candy melts in the top half of a double boiler set over barely simmering water. Working with one cracker at a time, dip into the bowl and gently tap on the rim to remove any excess. Place on a piece of waxed paper. Repeat with 11 more squares; top with sprinkles. Clean out your bowl.
Repeat the above process with the blue candy melts (do not top with sprinkles). Let set.
To make your s’mores, roast a marshmallow and place on one blue cracker. Immediately top with the dipped side of a red cracker and press gently. Eat immediately!
