Easy Grilled S'mores
(originally made 6/9/2008)
Watching Food Network the other day, Paula Deen had made some kind of s'more packet contraption and put it on her grill. I looked it up on the site and couldn't find it, so I googled instead. We're in the middle of a heat wave, so dessert inside wasn't an option, and this was fun to assemble with my little guy. 5 mins before we were done lunch, I threw them on the grill. I left the middle burner off, and kept the one to each side on low.
I think the recipe as posted is WAY too much chocolate and not enough marshmallow. For our packets, I laid out 1 whole graham cracker, placed 3 squares of chocolate from one end to the other, topped each square with 1 marshmallow, topped with another cracker and sealed the packet.
A tip, when you are ready to eat them, open the foil, and then press lightly on the top cracker and hold for a few seconds so it adheres :)
**Caution** Unlike traditional s'mores, the chocolate get heated on these too, and stays hotter a lot longer than the marshmallow does. So be careful!
Easy Grilled S'Mores
4 sheets (8 by 12 inches each) heavy-duty aluminum foil
4 graham crackers, broken into halves-- left ours whole, used 6
2 milk chocolate candy bars (1.55 ounces each), divided in half crosswise (broke into squares, needed less than 1 bar)
4 marshmallows (I used 9 for 3 S'more packets)
Preheat grill to medium or preheat oven to 450 degrees.
For each S'more, top one graham cracker square with one candy bar half, one marshmallow and another graham cracker square. Repeat with remaining graham crackers, candy and marshmallows. Center one S'more on each sheet of aluminum foil. Bring up foil sides. Double fold top and ends to seal packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Repeat to make four packets. Grill 4 to 5 minutes in covered grill or bake 4 to 5 minutes on a cookie sheet in oven. Serves 4.
Test Kitchen's note: We grilled, and the bottom graham cracker burned on some of them. We should have put them on the middle rack, not the one directly over the coals, since they just needed to be heated up enough for everything to melt. Otherwise, they were deliciously gooey.
