Pretzel S’more Bites*

Since summer started I have been craving a good S’more. I know that S’mores are usually campfire food and no one in their right mind would sit around a campfire in June in Florida. Well, unless they wanted to die from a heat stroke.

So when I saw this S’mores Bite while checking out at Publix, I turned around my cart and went and picked up a packet of gelatin for homemade marshmallows. I knew I could make it myself, but better.

First I started with homemade marshmallows. They are at the top of the list for things worth making yourself. Yes you can buy them for a couple dollars at the grocery store, but they truly do not taste the same as fresh homemade marshmallows. Like fresh homemade bread, they might be a pain to make but it’s so worth it for that first delicious bite!

Then I dipped those marshmallows in some delectable dark chocolate and sandwiched them between some original flavor Pretzel Crisps (they work perfectly because they are flat and provide pretzel in every bite!). I wanted to use pretzels, instead of traditional graham crackers, because I love combo of salty and sweet! These really filled my craving and I can’t stop munching on them.

If you can stand the heat of a fire, this would also make a wonderful twist on the traditional s’more! Just toast the marshmallow like normal, slap on a couple squares of dark chocolate and sandwich it up with some pretzels!

Pretzel S'more Bites

Yield: 12 large S'more Bites

Recipe Note: The only thing I do differently (to Alton Browns recipe for Homemade Marshmallows) is double the vanilla or add a vanilla bean. Otherwise it's perfect!

Ingredients:

4 oz Dark Chocolate
12 large Homemade Marshmallows
12 original Pretzel Crisps

Directions:

Line a baking sheet or counter top with parchment paper.

In a small bowl, microwave dark chocolate in 30 second intervals, stirring each time, until smooth.

Dip half (or whole!) marshmallow in melted dark chocolate and immediately sandwich between two original Pretzel Crisps.

Eat immediately for a melted chocolate snack or place on parchment paper to let harden. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

 

**I was given free pretzels from Pretzel Crisps® to try, but all opinions are 100% my own.**

    Love homemade marshmallows! They are so easy to make, yet so gourmet. Good call with the pretzel thins as the “graham cracker”!

    I tried making my own marshmallows once, but I took to many liberties with the recipe and it pretty much failed. I’d like to try again though :) Those pretzel crisps are so yummy, I’ll have to break down and buy some one of these days.
