So apparently, I missed the boat on national s’more day over the weekend, but I’m not letting that stop me from posting today’s DIY.
It’s still summer and I can s’more if I want to.
So…I made these little s’more ice cream sandwiches to channel my inner summer camp kid, while simultaneously appeasing my adult self. Plus, it’s too hot outside not have something cold to go with that warm toasted marshmallow and melty chocolate. Want to make your own?
Here’s what you need…
Ingredients: graham crackers, your favorite ice cream, marshmallows (I used the jumbo kind from the grocery store), chocolate (milk, dark, or white)
How-To: I know you don’t need a tutorial for s’mores. But I’ll just share how I made mine anyway. Wouldn’t be a DIY without instructions, right? Toast the marshmallows over a flame (campfire or a creme brÃ»lÃ©e torch) to make them warm and a little bit melty. Put a piece of chocolate onto a graham cracker, add the marshmallow on top, and set aside. Then put a large scoop of ice cream onto a second graham cracker. And put the first cracker onto the second to create a sandwich.
These are a fun treat for a backyard dinner party with friends or even a kid’s birthday party. But let’s be real. Anytime toasted marshmallows are involved, I’m game. Regardless of the occasion.
What about you though? Think you’ll give these a try?
