Introduction: Nutella Smores
Nutella is one of the greatest and most decadent chocolate food I can think of. It is delicious on ice cream, on it's own and even more so with toasted marshmallows and graham crackers. My mum recently came back from America and brought me Graham crackers which meant I could finally have true smores!!! (Living in Australia I had no idea what graham crackers were but they are delicious). This recipe would be awesome to make on a camping trip with an open fire or over an open flame (I chose my creme brulee torch as my source of flame) because it is so easy and really yummy!!
Step 1: Ingredients and Equipment
This is a really quick and simple recipe and you only need a few ingredients!!
- 2 Graham crackers
- 2 Tablespoons of Nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread, you could also use melted chocolate if you are allergic to nuts)
- 4 small marshmallows or 2 large ones cut in half (enough to cover the biscuits
- Open Flame (campfire, gas stove or creme brulee torch) or Microwave ( This works just as well but the marshmallows don't go golden brown.)
Step 2: Layer the Toppings
First get a plate and place the crakers onto it then generously cover each with 1 tablespoon of Nutella ( or more if you want) spreading it evenly with a butter knife. Then add your marshmallows on top evenly in the center of the crackers.
Step 3: Heat/ Toast the Marshmallows
Now this is the beautiful part..... toasting the marshmallows!!! The easiest way to do this would be to microwave the cracker with the marshmallows on it for 10-20 seconds. But if you have an open flame this both heats, melts and toasts the marshmallows, giving them a nicer overall flavor. Place the marshmallows near the flame on all sides so that it gets toasty brown and expands a bit.
Step 4: Finish the Smore
Once the marshmallows are toasted place the top graham cracker on top and squish it down. Then eat immediately so that you get the optimum deliciousness that the smore has to offer.
