We are living in a time of some amazing culinary experimentation. While culinary mashups are nothing new, witness the Turducken, which has it’s roots in ancient Roman times, some creations have gone a bit too far.
While I love nothing better than a bowl of Cheetos and a glass of wine for dinner, I am not keen to give Cheetos Macarons a try anytime soon. Nor will Goat Cheese and Peanut Buttercup Fries be passing these lips… not ever!
So, in the spirit of culinary creativity, I bring you The Ultimate S’more. Because it’s summer! Because it’s crazy delicious! Do I really need an excuse for taking my favourite Passover snack, Matzoh Crunch and turning it into that summertime staple, the s’more? Instead of using matzoh, I substituted Saltine crackers.I cooked butter and brown sugar until it resembled molten hot lava and poured it over a layer of saltines. I baked it until it was bubbling and then I covered it in bittersweet chocolate and marbled in some white chocolate, just because it’s so freaking beautiful.
Then I toasted some marshmallows and sandwiched them between the caramel chocolate coated crackers. If you are a purist, like my youngest son, you may prefer them raw!If you are watching your carbs, perhaps an open faced sandwich is the way to go.However you enjoy summer, including the Ultimate S’mores in your celebrations is bound to make it a lot sweeter.
