Craving s’mores, but lacking a fire pit? Everybody loves roasted marshmallows because of that fire-charred taste, but now you can get that without setting fire to your backyard.
Find out how to make s’mores right in your kitchen, with this recipe brought to us by Tori Spelling’s hubby Dean McDermott. This gourmet dad sure knows his way around a dessert!
“Less Is S’More” S’Mores
- Whole graham crackers, split into halves
- Chocolate chunks
- Heavy cream
- Mini marshmallows
- Kitchen torch
Heat about an inch of water to a boil. Place a metal bowl over the pot to create a double boiler.
To make the ganache, add the chocolate chunks to the boil. With a whisk, stir the chocolate as it melts. When it becomes creamy and velvety, remove the chocolate from heat.
Add about half a cup of cream or less and continue whisking it. If the chocolate seizes, put the bowl back over the heat to get the chocolate fluid and spreadable.
Spread a little ganache on both sides of the graham cracker. For a fudgy and less runny texture, refrigerate the chocolaty graham crackers.
Using mini marshmallows, stick some marshmallows in the chocolate. Using a kitchen torch, roast your marshmallows. If they catch fire, blow them out.
Smash two graham cracker halves together to complete your “Less is S’More” S’more, and ENJOY!
