S’mores

Our family got a little treat this past weekend when my husband’s sister came to town.  It’s been 3 years since she and her husband moved to Texas to take on a new job.  We were excited to spend a little time with them around their camper in a beautiful state park near our home.

Of course, S’mores were called for.

These are a bunch of grainy, low-light images, but still so fun! There is something about fall that makes sitting around the campfire so enjoyable.  The company wasn’t too shabby either. Happy Trails To You…Until We Meet Again.

Monkey Mix | National S’mores Day

Campfires and s’mores are usually part of summer bucket lists.  Who doesn’t enjoy roasting marshmallows over a campfire until they are almost burnt to a crisp, and then shoving them into layers of graham and chocolate?  Sadly, we didn’t enjoy this pleasure during the summer of never-ending-rains.  However, I created a s’mores inspired snack that pays homage one of summer’s best treats!  It’s a perfect afternoon snack that carries summer’s memories into the school days that are upon us.

S’mores Monkey Mix smores monkey mix circle There is something about the combination of banana, peanut butter, chocolate, and coconut that reminds me of monkeys.    And…I have 3 monkeys that love this mix!

To make this treat you’ll need:

mini graham crackers

banana chips

peanut butter chips

dark chocolate chips

sweetened coconut shreds

mini marshmallows

Empty the mini grahams into a large mixing bowl.  Add 1 cup of banana chips, peanut butter chips, and chocolate chips.  Sprinkle about 1/2 cup of sweetened coconut shreds in the bowl and toss with your hands to mix well.  Don’t be afraid to add in more of each ingredient according to your taste.  Set aside.

To give this mix a touch of S’mores goodness, you will lightly toast the marshmallows under your broiler.  Working in small batches, place mini marshmallows on a baking sheet, making sure that they do not touch.  Heat up your broiler.  Place the sheet of marshmallows under your broiler for roughly 1 minute.  Keep your eye on them, so that they toast, but retain their shape.  When they are toasted the way you like them, remove them and let the pan cool completely.  Once the pan has completely cooled, you should be able to pop the marshmallows right of your baking sheet, and add them to the mix. Give your monkey mix one last toss with your toasted marshmallows, and you are ready to serve!

Store your leftovers in an air tight container to continuing enjoying them throughout the week.

Happy National S’mores Day to you and your monkeys!
