Oven S'Mores

For Family Night last night, my kids asked if we could make S'Mores. We were going to attempt to roast them on the grill after our dinner. Sadly, the sky turned dark and in rolled a huge thunderstorm. The night turned out to be even more fun than we planned, though. The graham cracker box had instructions for making S'Mores in the oven, so we gave it a go. They turned out really pretty, and the kids were able to help! It was a great time - eating the sticky goodness while watching nature's beautiful fireworks from inside our home.

Oven S'Mores

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
-Line baking sheet with foil

(Now the kids can help)
-Break the graham crackers in half and place squares on baking sheet
-Place one large marshmallow on top of each square

-Put them in the oven for 5 minutes
(Make sure to turn the oven light on so the kids can watch the marshmallows grow!)

-After 5 minutes, pull the baking sheet out and place 2 squares of chocolate on top of each marshmallow.
-Allow chocolate to sit and melt for 1 minute.
-Top each S'More with another graham cracker square.

Wait until the S'Mores are cooled down enough to eat (not too long), then devour!
