S’mores are my guilty pleasure. Marshmallows, milk chocolate, and graham crackers are not safe. When I am in the mood, I can eat between two to four s’mores. Serving wise, that probably sounds like a light snack or dessert. Well, let’s see what MyFitnessPal says.
Yep. That’s just one. So four of these is 792 calories. Of course summer is around the corner. Stores love to put seasonal displays up. One of them is the s’more display. Jet Puffed Marshmallows, Hershey Milk Chocolate Bars and Honey Maid Graham Crackers are stacked in high foot traffic areas. I have to fight the urge to throw all three in the cart. If you still think 792 per portion sounds off. We can check out the nutrition information on each package.
These ingredients seem harmless on their own. Together. They add up quick. MyFitnessPal homemade nutrition label is accurate. This information won’t stop me from eating s’mores. However, I am more mindful of how often and how many I eat. There are three ways to make them.
These are the fastest s’mores to make. Cooking time is dictated by how much you want the marshmallow to expand. I like to microwave my s’more without the top graham cracker, because it usually falls off. Once the marshmallow is ready, I squish it with the top cracker and eat immediately.
The oven’s broil function makes it easy to make a lot of S’mores at once. I like to line a baking sheet pan with Reynolds wrap. Parchment paper works too. I line the pan with s’mores and put them in the preheated oven. Broiling it, helps get the charred appearance you won’t get with a microwaved s’more.
Need I say more. This final method is the most memorable way to make s’mores. Toasted on the outside and gooey on the inside. It’s like hot marshmallow creme (fluff). It melts the chocolate.
