Stuffed S'mores / #CookWeek

It's always fun to end a cookout with s'mores! The creamy, gooey marshmallow, the melty, drippy chocolate, and those just a little soft, but still crispy graham crackers. They have been my favorite summer treat since I was a little girl.
But today I wanted to share my recipe for Stuffed S'mores, which are the S'mores that we have all come to love, but with a yummy twist!
 Stuffed S'mores
printable recipe at end of page 

 3/4 pound Milk Chocolate (I used Trader Joes)
12 Jumbo Marshmallows
1 package Graham Crackers
Mini Marshmallows



Melt the chocolate over low heat using a double boiler.
While the chocolate is melting, using a cupcake plunger, or something similar, make a hole in the center of the marshmallow. Don't go all the way down to the bottom of the marshmallow. 
You want to leave the bottom marshmallow alone, so the chocolate will not seep through the marshmallow.
 Once the chocolate is melted, dip the marshmallow in to the chocolate, on the opposite side of where you put the hole. Make sure to get the chocolate on the bottom and up the sides a little bit.
Then dip the chocolate covered part of the marshmallow into the crushed graham cracker crumbs. 
Turn the marshmallows upside down and refrigerate until they are set up.
 Fill each of the holes with the chocolate ganache. Refrigerate again.
Cut the graham crackers into 1/4ths. Place the graham cracker piece into the back of the chocolate on each marshmallow. Place 1-3 mini marshmallows in front of the graham crackers.
 Use a kitchen torch to toast the marshmallows. All the marshmallows can be made up to this point and refrigerated. Take them out of refrigeration about 30 minutes before serving. Then toast with torch right before serving. Enjoy your S'mores!


This is my last #CookoutWeek recipe, 
and I hope you enjoyed all of them. 

Here are the others, in case you missed them!

S'mores Popcorn / #15 Minute Friday

I wanted to get at least one more S'mores recipe posted before everyone switches from summer mode to autumn! This is truly a simple recipe, so perfect for #15MinuteFriday! It is tasty and addicting, as I have found most S'mores recipes are! I have made S'mores Popcorn before, but this time I wanted to try out a new product I happened across, Hershey's S'mores Baking Pieces. It is found in the baking section of the grocery store, next to the chocolate chips.
 S'mores Popcorn
(printable recipe at end of page)

Bag of microwave Popcorn
1 bag Milk Chocolate Chips
1 bag Hershey's S'mores Baking Pieces

Melt the milk chocolate chips in a double boiler over low heat.
Pour popcorn into a shallow pan. A half sheet pan works great, if you have one. You want the popcorn to be in a single layer. Be sure to remove any unpopped corn kernels.
Drizzle 1/2 of the melted milk chocolate over the popcorn, moving back and forth. The chocolate sometimes tends to want to drip in small clumps. Don't worry about  the clumps They will hold the S'mores pieces better!
Place pieces of the graham cracker, marshmallow and chocolate piece from the bag onto the chocolate. Lay it right on top of the chocolate drizzle. Everywhere there is chocolate, place a piece or two of the baking pieces.
Once you have placed as much of the baking pieces as you want, take the rest of the melted chocolate and drizzle it over the popcorn and baking pieces. You might have to reheat it again. Set aside to allow the chocolate to dry. Enjoy!
Thanks so much for joining me today!

S'mores on a Stick / #15MinuteFriday

I don't think I have ever met anyone who doesn't love S'mores. Some people might think they are messy or sticky, but they still love how they taste! Well, for those who think they are messy and sticky, and they sometimes are;  I say, "here you go" ~ S'mores on a Stick! Way less mess and tons of S'mores flavor for #15MinuteFriday!
S'mores on a Stick
(printable recipe at end of page)
3 Giant Marshmallows
Stick to hold the marshmallow
1/4 pound Milk Chocolate
3 Graham Crackers






Place the marshmallows on sticks. I used these little canape forks from the dollar store, and they work great. Freeze the marshmallows for 30-40 minutes.
Crush the graham crackers until there are no big pieces.
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. I use Trader Joe's Milk Chocolate Bar for almost all my chocolate needs! I love their chocolate!

 Dip marshmallows in the chocolate. Coat the entire marshmallow.
 Immediately sprinkle the bottom half of the marshmallow with the graham crackers. Allow chocolate to set up.
Freeze or enjoy at room temperature. Either way, they are yummy!

I Heart S'mores on a Stick!

Today is reveal day for the Secret Recipe Club! This month I was so lucky to be assigned the blog, Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom! This fabulous blog is authored by Jamie. Jamie's blog is full of wonderful recipes, crafts, home projects, sewing tutorials, and wonderfully, creative crafts. I just love her blog, and you will to! I have been a little busy lately, so I picked one of Jamie's recipes that was quick, simple, and oh, so good~S'mores on a Stick. I dressed them up a little as a Valentine's Day treat, and they were a huge success. These are such a good idea and so yummy, I wish I had thought of it! :)
S'mores on a Stick
Red & White Straws, cut in half
Milk Chocolate
Pink Marshmallows, regular size
Graham Crackers
Red Ribbon
Crush your graham crackers, by putting them in a 
ziplock bag, and rolling over the bag with a rolling pin.
Melt your chocolate. I used Callebaut chocolate,
and it was perfect.
Poke the cut straws into the marshmallows.
Dip your marshmallow into the chocolate.
Roll your chocolate covered marshmallow in the
graham cracker crumbs.
Place the finished s'mores on a baking tray to set up.
Decorate as you wish. These would be perfect for a party,
with ribbons in the party colors, wouldn't it?
Thank you Jamie, for such a great recipe!

S'mores Cheesecake!

Although it is as hot as hot can be here in the desert, I love a roaring campfire and roasting marshmallows after the sun sets. As I thought about all the other things I love about summer, you know s'mores had to be on the list!  It's Crazy Cooking Challenge day and this month we are making cheesecake! I don't know about you, but I love a good cheesecake too! So, what could be better than S'mores Cheesecake! That's all of my summer loves rolled into one! Yum!
S'mores Cheesecake

 by Mary Crownover)
Graham Cracker Crust
1 1/4 cup finely crushed Graham Crackers
1/4 cup melted Butter

Cheesecake Filling
24 ounces softened Cream Cheese
2/3 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Whipping Cream
5 teaspoons Cornstarch
4 Eggs
1 Egg Yolk
1/4 cup Vanilla Flavored Syrup(Torani)
2 teaspoons Vanilla
8 oz. Milk Chocolate(Callebaut)
3-4 oz. Whipping Cream
Mini Marshmallows

This is my "go to" cheesecake recipe. Well, it is if you stop 
after the Vanilla in the ingredient list. I used it to create this 
s'mores recipe by making a few tasty additions.  But, if you are
in the mood for a really good, creamy, vanilla cheesecake
make this. You won't be disappointed. Oh, yeah, change the 
graham crackers to nilla wafers. So good!!
Combine the cream cheese, sugar, whipping cream
and cornstarch. Beat with an electric mixer till smooth.
Add eggs and the egg yolk, one at a time, beating well after
each addition.
Beat in vanilla flavoring and vanilla.
Mix together your graham crackers and butter.
Press the mixture into the bottom of your 
springform pan. Set aside.
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler set up.
Add the cream a little at a time until a desired 
smooth consistency is achieved.
Fill your springform pan with your cheesecake filling.
Leave a little room at the top for the chocolate to be added.
 Add about 3-4 spoon fulls of the melted chocolate
to your filling.
Swirl around for a pretty effect.
 Place some of the chocolate on top of the cheesecake.
Top with mini marshmallows all over.
Using a kitchen torch, roast the marshmallows.
You can roast them as much or as little as you wish.
Happy Roasting!
