Oven Skillet S’mores
Oven s’mores are my new thing. S’mores make me happy in the summer; toasting marshmallows on long skewers brings me joy (all except the part when my boys start sparring with the utensils). National S’mores Day is not till August 10th, but who can wait that long? Having a skillet version any time of year will keep me plugging along until the warm nights of summer arrive again. This is not a s’mores dip recipe, something that has become popular recently.
This is a true “oven” s’mores recipe to make in a cast iron pan in the oven. S’mores dip has melted chocolate and marshmallows in it, requiring you to dip the graham cracker in it. I see how that could be good, but that is not my thing. For it to be a s’more, I need it all together. This recipe is all the ingredients in one. You scoop it out on plates and serve. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.
Ingredient-wise, you can do whatever pleases you: homemade or store-bought marshmallows; specialty or a simple box of graham crackers; high-end chocolate or a checkout line candy bar. There is lots of room for interpretation. But for me, s’mores are not gourmet, they are a simple campfire treat made with Hersey’s chocolate bars, Nabisco Honey Maid graham crackers, and Kraft Jet-Puffed marshmallows.
