Fancy “S’mores”


Need a quick & easy dessert?  Here’s a new twist on an age-old recipe for S’mores.

I remember making S’mores in Girl Scouts when I was growing up, and Girl Scouts are actually credited with the first written S’mores recipe in their 1927 Girl Scout Handbook.  (I wasn’t born for decades later, just in case you’re wondering.)

Here’s the simple recipe:


  • Graham Crackers, broken in half to make squares
  • Marshmallows
  • Hershey’s Chocolate Bars
  • Maraschino Cherries
  • Canned Whipped Cream

Place squares of chocolate bar on a graham cracker half.  Then place marshmallows and top with another graham cracker.  Cook in microwave just until the marshmallow puffs up big.   Drizzle melted chocolate on top.  Serve on a pretty plate with chocolate covered marshmallows*, whipped cream and a cherry.

*To make chocolate covered marshmallows, place marshmallow on a toothpick and dip in melted chocolate.  Place on waxed paper to cool.
