Homemade Marshmallow S’mores

My sister was in town, who has a sweet tooth the size of Tennessee. During the 6 days she was in town, we made almond cupcakes, peanut butter pie, and oddly enough, marshmallows.

We weren’t going to settle for any jiffy-puff marshmallows in our s’mores, no siree!

Homemade Marshmallow S'mores

Unfortunately, while our marshmallows tasted good, we had no way of ‘toasting’ them. Tried broiling them in the oven… result: white goopy mess. Tried nuking them for 15 seconds… result: white goopy mess. Obviously homemade marshmallows have their limitations.

Nonetheless, if you’d like to try these for yourself, the marshmallow recipe is here. Add some graham crackers and ghirardelli dark chocolate, and you’ve got yourself some very delicious (albeit goopy) homemade s’more.

    Well, you are flying in the face of s’more tradition, using dark chocolate instead of Hershey milk chocolate bars, and using homemade (and, I’m sure, better-tasting) marshmallows. Even so, those do look awfully good….

    Those look delish!! I love dark chocolate and haven’t met a graham cracker I didn’t like. Then put homemade marshmellows in the middle of all that…oh my! All I’d need is a steaming cup of coffee and then I’d be in heaven! Again, when are you going to start delivering these goodies?? ;-)

    Oooh homemade marshmallows are awesome. I used the recipe from Cooking for Engineers (similar to epicurious) and browned them slightly with my little brulee torch. It worked, but not to the extent that cooking one over a wood fire would. Nothing beats that with a stick, I’ll tell ya!

    I think a little extra cooking time on your marshmallows would have made them more firm and able to brown when toasted. They still look great.

    You’re homemade marshmallow S’mores are such a great idea. On a different note tonight I gave my kids some Marshmallow and hot chocolate for the first time they simple loved it so this is something I will try at the weekend and see what they think.

    Ohh this pic just made my day! I must confess I have a slight smores obsession. When it comes to Smores, its always MORE MORE MORE for me. Can’t wait to tackle the homemade marshmallow. Any luck in toasting them?

    I’ve got a pretty big sweet tooth myself, and I simply could not resist something like this.

    Thanks for the pics and providing the marshmallow recipe too!
