Chocoholic: Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats

Shooting a cooking show series is a ton of work. For three straight weeks each May, the entire test kitchen at America's Test Kitchen shuts down, lights and cameras go up, and the kitchen staff focuses on the show. There are boat loads of food to be ordered, scripts to write, and the cooking of perfectly executed dishes timed right down to the minute (you do not want to hold the director up). More

Scooped: S'mores Sundae

When Maggie suggested I make a s'mores ice cream flavor, I recognized a chance not just for a new ice cream, but for a fuss-free way to enjoy the perfection of a s'more in the comfort of my own home. Instead of jamming all the s'more elements into a single ice cream, I kept them segregated as elements of a sundae. A s'more should have a hot component and a crunchy component: challenging in ice cream, but no problem with this approach. More

Pie of the Week: S'mores Pie

I can't so much as type the word s'more without my mind wandering off to a happy place. That's because s'mores aren't just about the sweet satisfaction of devouring chocolate, graham, and molten, charred marshmallow—they're about the ritual that gets you there and the fun you were having at the time. And while it's impossible to re-create the smoky nostalgia of a true s'mores experience, I submit a riff on s'mores, in pie form, that will take you most of the way there. More

Bake the Book: Sea Salt Caramel Swirl Marshmallows

The art of marshmallow making gives candy makers the opportunity to play with all sorts of exciting flavors because, after all, the marshmallow is really just a squishy blank canvas. We have to tip our hats to Shauna Sever, author of Marshmallow Madness for having the foresight and vision to bring together two of our favorite confections in these Sea Salt Caramel Swirl Marshmallows. And if you're wondering, they're just as great as they sound. Tender, bouncy vanilla marshmallows run through with ribbons of sweet and salty caramel. More

Let Them Eat: Sweet Potato Cake with Toasted Marshmallow Frosting

The first few holidays I spent with my in-laws, I was introduced to their sweet potato casserole, duly done up with nuts and ittty-bitty marshmallows that had bloated in the heat of the oven. The casserole dish—and I think there were two—was about the size of a rowboat that could comfortably seat four and feed 20 times that number. Never did I see more than a square inch consumed. The argument, naturally, has been to eliminate the dish altogether. But one does not contradict tradition. More

Sweet Finds: Marshmallows by 240sweet

I don't believe I've ever seen one company make so many flavors of marshmallows, and in this case, it's an amazing, awesome thing. These are the kind of treats you'll want stashed at your desk, where you'll eat them one by one until you've suddenly realized that the whole bag is gone. More

American Classics: S'mores for the Indoors

Summer technically isn't quite over yet and I'm doing my best to cram in a last hurrah before September 23rd rolls around and I have to make peace with apples and pumpkins, shorter days and longer nights. There are few desserts as closely bonded to summer memories as s'mores and this recipe gives you all the toasty tastiness you remember from camp—without the fire pit. More
