A S’more Recipe for Busy Parents – My Treat…

Fall is upon us, at least for those of us not living in the paradise of California… and when the chill comes, the bonfire madness begins. And then there’s the tasty treats that accompany them.

I found a few recipes for S’mores that put a radical new spin on a traditional, if not routine nighttime affair. I’ve shared the latest of them below. Granted, they’re not all made ON the fire, but with one of these, you can make almost anything on the campfire!

Perfect for anyone experiencing a little nostalgia for warm summer days as well as a craving for something sweet, the Five Minute Chocolate Fudge Smores Mug Cake offers the perfect solution.

Recently featured on food blog ‘How Sweet It Is,’ this recipe for Five Minute Chocolate Fudge Smores Mug Cake is as easy to prepare as it is delicious. Requiring the same tempting ingredients as the classic campfire treat:

 

Ingredients:

A few marshmallows
Graham crackers (broken, not crushed or whole)
Chocolate (get creative! Dark, milk, white, etc)
3 TBSP of butter
Vanilla extract
Pastry flour

 

Instructions:

Place the graham cracker pieces, melted butter, vanilla and pastry flour in a mug and lightly stir the ingredients together.

Microwave them for a few minutes until it becomes a cake-like mixture, then add a couple of small marshmallows on the top for the last few seconds (not too early or they’ll blow up in the microwave!).

To get the toasty golden brown on the top, you might have to bake this and use oven mitts to drink it!

 

Happy Tasting!
