Strawberry Shortcake S’mores
I have this friend, Candice, who is very much the nature girl. Actually, she’s pretty granola in most aspects of her life. She and her family went on a two week road trip and camped all over the place. When she had some phone service, she told me about these Strawberry Shortcake S’mores and that I had to make them. Well, I finally got to it for this month’s Ultimate Recipe Challenge which focuses on the strawberry. It’s pretty amazing, so Candice was right.
Before I go on, let me tell you about the Ultimate Recipe Challenge. Every other month, on the second Wednesday, a group of blogger get together and create a recipe with the featured ingredient, much like the Foodie Extravaganza group I’m in. Our host each month is Kim from The Kim Six Fix. You should visit her blog sometime. Also, as you read down this post for my recipe, keep scrolling so you can get the links to all of the other posts in this challenge. Don’t they look amazing?
You may or may not know that I recently moved to Martinique. It’s always a challenge when we move to a new country to find ingredients that I’m used to. I love to cook with new things, but sometimes you just want something you already know. Know what I mean? So, to make these Strawberry Shortcake S’mores, you will need graham crackers, salted butter, strawberries and marshmallows.
Here’s where the problem came in. I can’t find graham crackers anywhere and the strawberries here are really not good at all. Fresh strawberries would be best for this recipe, but I opted for frozen so they were sweet. They are really great for smoothies. I decided to make the graham crackers from scratch. They aren’t exactly the same, but they are good none the less and now I can have graham crackers whenever I want. I used this Homemade Graham Crackers recipe from Thirty Handmade Days. I recommend it if you want to make Homemade Graham Crackers.
- 2 Cinnamon Graham Cracker Squares
- 1 Marshmallow
- 1 large strawberry, sliced
- 2 tsp salted butter, softened
- Slice strawberry into 4 slices.
- Lay crackers on a plate or flat surface.
- Spread the butter over one side of the cracker.
- Top the butter with the sliced strawberries.
- Toast marshmallow to desired color.
- Place marshmallow on the strawberries.
- Cover with other graham cracker square.
- Squish the marshmallow and eat it up!
If you decide to try these and don’t have a camp fire to toast the marshmallow on, try it in the oven. It works great!
You will notice on the plate that some of the marshmallows are pink. That is the way they come here. About 20 marshmallows, half pink and half white. I want to find some Rice Krispies and try some Rice Krispie Treats with these fun marshmallows.
