I had to laugh at today’s blog post title, because, while this is totally a kid friendly recipe that the kids can make (with supervision) it is not made in a kitchen. Well, I guess you could make it in the kitchen but the preferred method is over a campfire on a camping trip! (Smile!)
You all know by now that I am a tiny bit s’mores obsessed. This obsession all started when I was about seven years old. That was the year my Mom became my Girl Scout leader. That was also the year I went on my first ‘camping trip’. I use this term loosely because we really didn’t go camping, we just went to my Uncle’s ranch and did camping ‘stuff’ like roast hot dogs, ride horses, play in the leaves, chase armadillos (remember this is Texas y’all!!) and build a campfire to do what I do best, make a kickin’ s’more.
Seriously what kid doesn’t like holding a stick (by the way, we thought it was so cool to use real sticks we found on the ground) with a mallow in rangin’ flames and then smushin’ it in between two grahams and chocolate.
This is the essence of childhood!
I couldn’t end camping week without a s’more recipe, cuz seriously campin’ isn’t the real deal without s’mores! I love this dressed up version of a s’more. The classic s’more flavor is transformed with my other favorite flavors: chocolate, banana and peanut butter!
1 sheet chocolate graham cracker, broken in half
1 chocolate peanut butter cup
1/3 medium banana
1 large marshmallow
Place peanut butter cup on one half of chocolate graham cracker.
Thread banana piece onto roasting stick and roast over camp fire for about 3 minutes or until starting to heat through and caramelize. During the last 20-30 seconds of cooking thread marshmallow onto end of roasting stick and cook until beginning to turn golden brown.
Once cooked sandwich roasted banana and marshmallow between cracker pieces on top of peanut butter cup.
