I am pretty much in love with the gourmet s’mores bars that grace summer soirees (and weddings). And until I put together a S’mores Party Bar with flavored marshmallows and fun nicknames like “Chunky Monkey” (peanut butter, banana, dark chocolate, chocolate graham cracker, of course), I will take out every opportunity I can to try out smaller scale s’mores buffets on my family and friends.
Like this s’mores sampler platter, for example. We put it together last weekend with one grocery store trip and then spent Memorial Day trying out various s’mores combinations.
In fact, my sister-in-law and I devised a system to make mini s’mores with just one rectangle of graham cracker so that we could try more combinations. Love it (and love that I have someone to share my sweet tooth ways- so thankful for that girl).
A s’mores sampler platter is as easy as it sounds to put together- buy a lineup of various chocolate combinations (we got classic Hershey’s, Hershey’s Cookies and Cream, Reese’s cups, Junior Mints, Ghiardelli’s Midnight Dark Chocolate Squares and Almond Joys) as well as graham crackers and marshmallows (we got the flat s’mores ones), Nutella and peanut butter, set out on a platter (and a chalkboard if you’re extra excited about this like Trish and I were), and roast up all sorts of s’mores combinations.
My favorites? Double mallow with junior mints s’mores…
…and Reese’s, Hershey’s milk chocolate, and double marshmallows. Also, Adam loved the basic s’more with dark chocolate.
I think every. single. party. this summer needs a s’mores sample platter. Maybe every family dinner as well?
