I Want S'more
Back in the middle of last week, Carol from the UK asked what a s'more is. That's one of the interesting things about blogging; it's really an international forum. S'mores are such a quintessential part of American summers that I never even considered that others might not recognize the name. In the interests of international friendship, I hereby present the s'more.
There are three ingredients: Graham crackers, marshmallows, Hershey's plain milk chocolate bars.
You begin by roasting the marshmallows. Burned or browned... whatever suits your style. Cautious folks use one per s'more. Those with fewer inhibitions go for two. It's a challenge to eat, but they are willing to step up to the task.
You have to have plain Hershey's chocolate bars. I don't know why. You just do.
Place half a chocolate bar on a graham cracker square. Place a hot marshmallow on top of that and top with another cracker square. Squish. If you can wait a minute the chocolate will soften too. Most people proceed directly to: Eat.
