Labor Day Weekend Suggestion: Make S’Mores Shots

You are seeing this correctly: it is a s’more. And a shot. More specifically, it is a shot made out of a s’more. I’m not going to lie to you and tell you that these are the easiest things to consume – they require a sort of nibble/sip maneuver that takes a bit of practice – but oh, they are worth the work.

S’MORES SHOTS

What You Need:

  • Jumbo marshmallows (normal-sized ones will not work)
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips (or whatever chocolate you prefer)
  • Crushed graham crackers
  • Parchment paper
  • A kitchen torch (Yeah, I know – I don’t have one either; I borrowed my friend’s. You can also just roast the tops the regular way, but it’ll be a bit more of a pain.)
  • Bailey’s Liqueur (or whatever you prefer)*

*You can swap in milk if you’d prefer to make these nonalcoholic.

What You Do:

  1. Using a melon baller (or your fingers; whatever), create a hollow in the center of each marshmallow. Make sure not to poke through to the bottom, as that negates the whole “shot-glass” aspect of this little project.
  2. Pour the chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave in 30-second increments, stirring in between, until smooth.
  3. Pour the crushed graham crackers into a second bowl.
  4. Working quickly, dip the bottom of each marshmallow first in the melted chocolate, and then in the crushed graham crackers. Set on parchment paper in the refrigerator to let cool (you’ll really only need a couple of minutes; the chocolate hardens quickly).
  5. Using your kitchen torch, char the tops of the marshmallows until golden-brown and bubbling. (Be careful not to angle the torch towards the chocolate-dipped bottoms, or they’ll melt.)
  6. Fill each marshmallow cup with the liqueur of your choice (or milk), and serve with napkins.
