Fruit S'mores

Strawberry S'mores

Okay, so this isn't exactly revolutionary, but I thought since it has become a family favorite, it was worth mentioning. This is a quick and easy treat that I like to put together when I'm short on time and need something sweet to eat. Basically, you add slices of fruit inside a s'more and voila ... you've got fruit s'mores. Just pop them in the microwave for a few seconds and you're done.

You can really get creative with flavors: just run wild with it. Other fruits you can try are raspberries, blueberries, apples, cherries, pineapples, pears, apricots and shredded coconut. You can also spread some strawberry jam, lemon curd, orange marmalade, nutella, peanut butter, Sunbutter or almond butter on the graham cracker for another layer of flavor.

Fruit S'mores
Allergy note: contains wheat and dairy ingredients

graham crackers (plain, cinnamon or chocolate)
chocolate bar or chocolate chips (milk, dark, semi-sweet or white chocolate)*
marshmallows (regular or mini)
slices of fruit (see suggestions above)
jam, nut butters or sunbutter (optional)

* allergen-friendly chocolate options: Enjoy Life chocolate bars or chocolate chips or Chocolate Dream chocolate chips

Line a microwave-safe plate with graham cracker squares. On each graham cracker, place some chocolate and marshmallows. Microwave for 15 to 20 seconds or until the marshmallows begin to puff. Place slices of fruit on top of the soft marshmallows then cover with another graham cracker square (if you want, you can spread jam or nut butter on the graham cracker before placing it on top).

You can also prepare these in the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place a layer of graham crackers then some chocolate and marshmallows. Bake for 5 minutes or until the marshmallows begin to puff. Remove from the oven and place slices of fruit on top of the soft marshmallows then cover with another graham cracker square.
