Growing up Muslim I didn’t have the chance to indulge in campfire s’mores with friends because those lovely jet-puffed marshmallows contained gelatin. However, as we grew a little older we managed to happen across halal marshmallows every so often, pleading with our mom to make an exception to buy them. Thankfully as the years have gone by, access to halal marshmallows has gotten easier. And by extension – my ability to indulge in toasty gooey chocolate-y heaven has increased. So much so, that I decided to elevate the recipe further by making Toffee S’mores
Now, I normally like to make my s’mores in the oven because it is easier and less messy, and personally I hate burnt marshmallows. If you are a seasoned campfire s’mores professional you can, by all means, make these over a fire. But for those of us city folk (less exposed to campfire cuisine), you can chuck these babies in the oven under the broiler setting.
Sadly, ever since I got my new oven the broiler setting sucks. So I have to bake these toffee s’mores and it takes a little longer than I would like. Like 5 minutes too long and that’s really not okay with me LOL. In any case, these toffee s’mores are guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser because they are a new spin on an old classic. The combination of dark chocolate, gooey marshmallow, crispy crackers and crunchy toffee is the way to go!
forget the campfire. These toffee s’mores can be made in the concrete jungle right in your oven!
An elevated recipe to a simple classic campfire s'more.
Preheat oven to 350 F degree or the broil setting on high. Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Place 4 graham crackers on the tray. Add a piece of chocolate to each graham cracker and top it off with two marshmallows.
Bake the marshmallows for 5 minutes or until nice and toasty on top. If you are using the broil setting be sure to watch carefully so that they do not burn. Remove the s'mores from the oven and place bits of sponge toffee on top. Sandwich the remaining graham cracker on top. Serve immediately. Go for seconds or thirds.
* You can easily get sponge toffee at your local candy store for less than $2.00! You can use the remainder to make my Salted Dulce de Leche Chocolate Toffee Ice Cream
