Smores Recipe without the campfire

I was reading through some food blogs yesterday and I stumbled across a fantastic food blog Savory Sweet Life through the Foodie Blogroll. I was scanning through some of her recipes and saw a picture of SMORES. OOOOH. I LOOOVE SMORES. And it looked AMAZING and wonderfully simple. You know what? Its almost better than campfire smores because the chocolate actually melts (rather than Hershey bars that never melt enough at the campfire), Obviously its missing the whole bonfire, sitting out at night under the stars, roasting marshmallows on a stick, blowing it out as it catches on fire and burning it to a crisp despite how rapidly you turn it experience...but thats why I said its only almost better :). The recipe is exactly like hers except with a few minor modifications, although its worth mentioning that hers looks way more beautiful!). Next time, I think I'll try the miniature marshmallows instead and the chocolate chips.

Smores Cookies
100% Inspired

Graham Crackers
Ghiradelli Milk Chocolate
Marshmallows (i used the large)

1. Assemble graham crackers on aluminum foil (or lined cookie sheet)
2. If using big marshmallows, place one per graham cracker. (If using miniature marshmallows, then spread a bunch across the graham crackers that are closely lined together)
3. Lay a small piece of milk chocolate on each marshmallow

4. Use toaster oven or regular oven and broil it for about 8-10 minutes. Watch carefully so you don't burn it. (I like my marshmallows slightly burnt so I kept it closer to 10 minutes.)

5. Remove from toaster oven and top with remaining graham cracker
6. Imagine yourself at a campfire sitting under the stars while enjoying the chocolatey ooey gooey crispy burnt marshmallow goodness
