Mexican Chocolate Treats
If you’re a fan of superbly spiced Mexican hot chocolate, you’ll find that those warm, relaxing flavors translate to s’more format beautifully. Simply sprinkle on a pinch of cinnamon powder onto the inside of the s’more, along with just a little chile powder for a piquant, savory bite. Then, top the treat with the remaining graham cracker and mash it lightly together.
Swap Out the Sweets
You can create a variety of surprisingly different s’mores simply by replace one ingredient or another. While the roasted marshmallow is key to the classic melty texture, the graham cracker and chocolate bar are both up for substitutions for a change of pace. Try trading out those crackers for rice krispie treats, or even Oreos. You can also switch out the standard milk chocolate bar for Snickers, Reese’s cups, Milky Ways, crunchy Kit Kats, or even chocolate-covered pretzels.
Much has been written about musician Elvis Presley’s favorite foods, and his preference for peanut butter, banana, and bacon sandwiches is well noted. The singer was so fond of this hearty comfort food that many restaurants now offer the ‘wich on their menus under the name “The Elvis.” The combo works wonderfully well as a s’more, too! In lieu of chocolate, apply a spread of peanut butter, candied bacon, and banana with roasted marshmallow between the crackers.
Candied Bacon S’mores
Save some of that bacon from The Elvis s’more, because candied bacon provides the perfect combination of sweet salinity to the classic campfire dessert. To make the candied bacon, you’ll need to slather some strips in brown sugar and bake them in the oven until they’re nice and crispy. To balance the sweetness of the brown sugar, consider swapping out the milk chocolate bar with rich dark chocolate.
