If you love classic S’mores, then you’ll really love these Strawberry S’mores.
I’ve decided there are three types of people in the word.
Group One: They don’t like S’mores. They either prefer to eat a charred marshmallow or none at all. However the idea of a S’more is just not something they are interested in.
Group Two: They toast their marshmallow, prepare their s’more and then go about their business. One is plenty and sometimes they only eat one because it’s expected, not necessarily what they desire. I would put my husband in this category.
Generally speaking he’s not a sweets kind of person and prefers salty snacks. And floats between group one and two depending on the campfire and the group.
Lastly we have Group 3. Really these are the rock stars of s’mores.
These are the people who know what they want and have no shame in telling the world. I myself fall into this rock star group. I’m the person who makes my first S’more while standing around the campfire with everyone, laughing and having a great time. I then go back for a second with one or two others, all the while giving each other the “it’s OK, you’re not alone or a pig for wanting two” look of acceptance. And then….Yes…THEN, there is me, the lone ranger, back at the campfire for a third.
Which category would you say you fall into? Or is there a fourth category that I haven’t even considered.
So let’s fast forward to current time. It’s lunch time and the lighting is just right for photos and of course, I’m DEFINITELY one for dessert first and decide to whip up these scrumptious and amazing Strawberry S’mores right then and there.
However, the issue with making a Strawberry S’more or any s’more and being a food blogger is that you have to constantly stop and take photos. So by the time you go to eat your Strawberry S’more your marshmallow is cold and your chocolate is hard.
This my friends is unacceptable. The chocolate should be melted and the marshmallow gooey and the strawberries and chocolate should meld their flavors together.
So I whipped up 3 of these, thinking I was going to be a good girl and only eat one. And despite the marshmallow being cold and the chocolate being hard, I was in utter heaven. The flavors exploded in my mouth and I dare say that I ate all three right then and there.
However, I really needed a warm marshmallow squished photo and so I was forced, FORCED I tell you, to make another. And who am I to deny my readers drool worthy photos?!
So I make a fourth. This time, the chocolate melts, the marshmallow is warm and gooey and I utterly died right then and there. I literally sat there saying mmmmm…..mmmmmm…. and oh my gosh…wow….WOW….mmmmm mmmmm mmmmm… <— True Story.
You’ll be proud though, I did offer my husband a bite. Just one though.
And so my dear friends. I had no choice but to take one for the team and eat almost four Strawberry S’mores for lunch one day.
Truth be told, I’d do it again in a heartbeat.
These Strawberry S’mores are now my all time favorite campfire treat and will be making an appearance at every bonfire I am apart of this year. I hope they’ll make an appearance at yours too.
There are two flavors that no matter what form they appear in, they will always be perfect together; strawberries & chocolate.
- 1 whole graham crackers, divided in half
- 1 squares of your favorite chocolate
- 1 marshmallow
- Sliced fresh strawberries
Layer Chocolate and strawberries on top of one side of a graham cracker.
Toast marshmallows over a perfectly warm and toasty fire.
Lay toasted marshmallow on strawberries and top with second graham cracker.
Squish graham crackers together allowing toasty marshmallow to warm and melt chocolate.
Devour and repeat.
