Smores Extravaganza

Should I post on a Saturday? I think I will. This post is ready, so why not. Enjoy and Happy Weekend!

When I say Smores Extravaganza, I mean extravaGONza. You have to pronounce it that way. I was making my whole family insane because I was insisting it was an extravagonza. This is a great interactive dessert and there is a combo for everyone.

The fixings

What you will need:
Chocolate grahams
Honey grahams
Cinnamon grahams
Dark chocolate
Milk chocolate
White chocolate
Sliced bananas
Peanut butter
Marshmallows
Marshmallow cream

Good brother in-law eating good smores

Our method is making the whole thing, wrapping it in foil and then setting it on the grill. And for this method, we found that the marshmallow cream works best. When wrapping the little smores pile, fold up the sides and with the ends, fold one over the top and one of the bottom. This will make sure the bottom doesn't burn. No direct heat contact.

Wrapped up in a pretty little package

Some of our combinations:
Cinnamon graham, white chocolate, peanut butter, marshmallow cream and bananas
Triple threat: white chocolate, milk chocolate, dark chocolate and marshmallow cream
Chocolate graham, milk chocolate and marshmallow cream
Honey graham, dark chocolate, bananas and marshmallow cream
One side honey graham, one side chocolate graham, white chocolate and marshmallow cream

For part of my daughter's sixteenth birthday party last week the kids made s'mores on the fire pit in the back yard. I found strawberry marshmellows, carmel ones and chocolate and vanilla ones. We also used Reese's Peanut Butter cups instead of chocolate and the Cookies and Cream Hershey bar - so good!

Love the idea of wrapping them in foil and putting them on the grill.
