Campfires aren’t just for summer nights anymore. We think this chilly December weather makes curling up by a fire sound pretty darn nice right now. And what better way to enjoy a winter evening warm inside than a staple of the great outdoors? We’re talking about s’mores, of course! It might seem off-season for this fireside sweet-treat, but maybe that’s why Amy Blogs Chow and her guest Mari Tuttle, of Mari’s New York, give it the reverse treatment. And, you don’t need kindling, wood or even wide open space to make it!
Instead, all you need is marshmallows, your chocolate of choice, graham crackers and a stovetop to whip up a batch of reverse s’mores. But wait, there’s more! For those of you scrambling to throw together your holiday party this year, Amy and Mari have a yuletide version of their stupidly simple snack. Swap out the crushed graham crackers, for crushed peppermint candy pieces and voila, you have a holiday hors d’oeuvres that will disappear faster than the spiked eggnog.
The holidays should be about enjoying food, not stressing about how to make it. Make sure to check back with the Hungry Nation blog for more ways to cook for the holidays!
