This snack is great for those of us with children and especially for those of us who love crunchy / sweet combination to satisfy those sweet-tooth urges.
As the title suggests, my four year old wanted a snack and I wanted something quick and easy to make. I wasn’t feeling the huge kitchen mess of brownies nor the time invested.
After searching our kitchen cabinets, I came across Graham Crackers and Big Marshmallows. I thought, “Too bad it wasn’t summer time, this is a great beginning for shmores!” Ah,ha! Idea!
As my inquisitive four-year old son watched, I pulled out the baking sheet, marshmallows and went to work. The result was a very easy and great tasking mock-shmores.
Below, you will find the recipe and directions for Mock-Shmores.
14 Graham Crackers (square ones work the best)
7 Big Marshmallows
1 Jar of Nutella (You won’t use all of this but amount will vary depending on taste)
Step 1: Set your oven to broil
Step 2: Cut Marshmallows in half (I used my kitchen scissors)
Step 3: Place 7 Graham crackers on the baking sheet and place half a marshmallow on top
Step 4: With your oven rack set to the highest position, place the baking sheet in to toast the marshmallows
Step 5: While the marshmallows are toasting, spread Nutella on the other 7 graham crackers
Step 6: Remove toasted marshmallow crackers from oven and place the nutella cracker on top. Press together gently and serve
Servings: 7 x Mock-Shmores (Serving size depends on if you’re sharing them or not)
Time: 8 Minutes
Like I said, the results were a HUGE success for my family—especially my four-year old son. Finding a way to entertain your child can be a challenge at times. (This is for those of you with children—as I am sure you can relate.) While the marshmallows are cooking, ask questions like, “What do you think will happen to the marshmallows? What color do you think they will be?” Also, I can verify that child-proof scissors will cut marshmallows just fine. Children can even help with spreading the Nutella on the crackers. Although, be prepared for lots of licking and a good amount of mess!
