Microwave S'Mores

Fran Miller


I love s'mores with the marshmallows toasted over a campfire, but I needed to make them for a classroom treat. I'm posting this recipe to remind myself how I did it. They turned out REALLY well, but I didn't need FIVE boxes of graham crackers for 52 students! One and one-half boxes was more than enough. I also used about one and one-half bags of small Hershey bars and less than one bag of marshmallows. Delicious! =^..^=

5Watch closely. When the marshmallow puffs up, the s'more is done. (If the marshmallow falls sideways, you need to quickly place it back in the center of the graham cracker using the top cracker piece.)

7Another great idea: Seasonal S'Mores Kits using Peeps Marshmallow Shapes. Here are ones that I gave my students for Halloween. =^..^=
