Everything you want to know about chocolate
I've never eat s'mores. They're just way too sweet. I much prefer to stick a marshmallow on a twig and set it aflame until it's crispy and black. But when I had the notion to create an indoor version, I knew for certain that I'd be able to create a s'more with a flavor profile that was more to my liking.
Just like the original, these indoor s'mores are super easy. First, I pressed a graham cracker crust into a baking pan. I filled the crust with a layer of bittersweet ganache, then chilled it to set the ganache. After, I scattered a generous layer of mini-marshmallows over the top and then pulled out my favorite kitchen tool—my handheld blow torch. In a few seconds I blasted the marshmallows into a melty-gooey topping with a modest amount of char. The result? Buttery graham crackers and melty marshmallows balanced by deep dark chocolate. Who needs a campfire anyway?
My tip with these bars: cut them into squares before topping with the marshmallows. I learned the hard way—once melted, they're impossible to cut nicely!
