The classic flavour combination of a s’more – chocolate, graham crackers & marshmallows, can be served up in as many ways as there are means – pies, puddings, cakes, cookies, pretzels, pops, bites, bark or bars – if there’s a means, there’s a mode! And a bar is a good a way as any! Don’t need a campfire, just the players – don’t fuss over the quantities – more or less crunch (graham crackers) or chewy (marshmallows) in the chocolate is completely up to you. There simply is no wrong way to throw these three together – a ménage à trois ’til the end of time! So on that note – next time you must explore a s’more, look no more …
