I ate a lot of s’mores as a kid. It all started at our family’s annual summer vacations to Kentucky Lake. Later, at home, my sister and I would make them regularly in the microwave. Authentic “camp” flavor doesn’t happen in the microwave, but it was fun to watch them rise and (nearly!) explode.
It probably comes as no surprise that hershey bars and jet puffed marshmallows aren’t quite my thing anymore. So, last weekend, Jack and I headed to Whole Foods where we gathered ideas and ingredients to make these fancy pants gourmet s’mores.
Most of our inspiration came from the fancy chocolate aisle. I could lose myself in that section all day… So. many. pretty. packages. Jack waited impatiently while I decided
which bars looked prettiest together which flavors would go best together.
Truth be told, we tried to make our own homemade vegan marshmallows. It was a big fail, but these vegan homemade-like ones by Sweet and Sara are awesome. (Find them in the refrigerated section).
To keep things somewhat classic, we used regular (365 brand) graham crackers. We also stocked up on fruit and a jar of Jeni’s Salty Caramel Sauce. (I never said these were going to be healthy s’mores!).
Here are the combos we came up with! They were all delicious but I think our favorite was the one with strawberries & white chocolate (made with the Divine White Chocolate & Strawberries bar, pictured above).
The giveaway is now closed.
- graham crackers
- variety of fancy chocolates
- fruit such as: bananas, strawberries, blackberries
- salted caramel
