Some More Ways to Enjoy S'mores

July 9, 2015

There is something sentimental about the nostalgic combination of chocolate, graham cracker, and marshmallows.  I have vivid memories of spending warm nights roasting marshmallows on sticks and soaking up the fresh summer air.  As we get older and our lives become more complicated, camping trips become less frequent and soon these precious moments are all we have left of simpler times.  These s'mores recipes will transport you back to these carefree memories and no campfire is required. 

S'mores Brownies
Recipe from Erica's Sweet Tooth

his is an easy recipe that you can whip up when you are in need of a dessert but don't have a lot of time to bake one.  These brownies have all the elements of classic s'mores but with a twist.  A buttery graham cracker crust is layered with a peanut butter brownie batter and topped with mini marshmallows.

We have all fallen victim to our sweet tooth.  Sugar lures us with the promise of a square of velvety chocolate, a moist slice of freshly baked cake or a rich scoop of ice cream.  Time and time again, we are hypnotized by the pleasure of desserts.  These s'mores cups help you take back a wee bit of that control.  While you are not totaling eliminating all the goodness from the equation, you are certainly reducing it.  If you find yourself yearning for something sweet, turn to this low calorie recipe for relief.
