Intro: How to Make a Perfect S'more
So, until now, I'm betting that most of you thought that the only way to make a good s'more was over a fire, yes?
YOU THOUGHT WRONG!
I can show you how to make an absolutly PERFECT s'more, possibly useful for world domination. Then again, maybe not. You'll just have to try it and find out!
Step 1: Step 1: Find Various Bits
Per s'more, you will need:
2 Graham Crackers
4 Big Chocolate Chips, I like Hershey's Mini Kisses
Step 2: Step Two: Prepare the Super High Tech Marshmallow/Chocolate Module
First, poke a chocolate chip into each end of the marshmallow (Picture 1). Poke them in far, so that the marshmallow can still stand on end without tipping over too much.
After that, put the other two chocolate chips on each side of the marshmallow (Picture 2).
Put the whole thing on a graham wafer so that it doesn't tip over (Picture 3).
Step 3: Now This Is the (comparitively) Hard Part....
Microwaving these things is not hard, but it is fairly precise. Too long, and the marshmallow will burn/melt all over the place, but not long enough and the chocolate chips won't melt enough.
First put the graham wafer/marshmallow/chocolate unit in the very center of the microwave. Close the door, set it for 10 seconds, and DO NOT PRESS START YET. What we're trying to do here is press the 'stop' button just as the marshmallow begins to swell up significantly. I generally wait for it to either start to spill over the edge of the cracker, or a chocolate chip to fall out. It may not work very well the first time.
Go ahead and do that, and the marshmallow will immediately begin to deflate upon removal from microwave, ending up something like the one in the picture. Notice that a chocolate chip has been pushed out; make sure that all chocolate chips are in contact with lots of marshmallow. The chocolate chips themselves don't seem to be affected by the microwave, so it's the heat of the marshmallow that softens the chocolate.
Step 4: Microwave, Part 2
IMMEDIATELY after finishing the previous step, place a graham wafer on top of the marshmallow/chocolate chips. It wil pop up a bit; the marshmallow isn't really melted yet so that's normal.
Repeat the previous step, this time stopping the microwave just as the top graham wafer is about to fall off. The marshmallow expands quite a bit quicker this time, so be careful or you'll end up with a plate covered in burned marshmallow.
After this, one of the wafers has usually been pushed off. You have about 20 seconds to push any wayward chocolate back into the marshmallow, and put the top wafer back in place. When you do this, push down gently and you should get something like Picture 2.
Step 5: Finished!
That's it! Just clean (eat) the excess marshmallow from the sides, and let it cool for a minute or two! It isn't exactly too hot to eat after a couple of seconds, but it is a bit squishy... tends to squirt out of the wafers. Anyways, that's how to make an excellent microwaved s'more!
