Ever since I was a little kid, s’mores have always been one of my favorite camping snacks. What’s not to love about it? Graham crackers? Good. Marshmallows? Good. Chocolate? Great! My secret to the perfect s’more, which I’ll share with you here, (but you have to promise not to tell anyone) is to soften or melt the chocolate a little bit by putting the chocolate in the graham cracker and placing it on a rock near the campfire for a few minutes while you cook your marshmallow.
Even though the recipe below for watermelon s’mores isn’t quite the same as a traditional campfire s’more, it’s the perfect standby when you’re camped out at home with friends and family.
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup chocolate fudge sauce
4 two-inch by four-inch by one-inch thick rectangles of seedless watermelon
1 cup mini marshmallows
Sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs over the center of 4 plates. Drizzle 1/3 of the fudge sauce over the crumbs. Place a watermelon rectangle over the crumbs and chocolate on each plate. Drizzle 1/3 of the chocolate fudge sauce over the watermelon. Sprinkle the marshmallows over the watermelon and drizzle the remaining chocolate fudge sauce over the marshmallows. Serves 4.
