Recipe #115: S'Mores...Anytime You Want!!!

Yes, I remember making these on campouts as a girl scout, 49 years ago...and yes, that age would be correct..yikes!  There's nothing like roasting marshmallows over an open campfire, but who has the luxury of being able to make a fire on a whim?  That said, I have also made them by putting the marshmallows on a shish kabob skewer and roasting over an open flame on the stove in my kitchen.  The problem with that, though, like the campfire, is that you can only make one s'more at a time.  Well, all your problems are solved...yes, you can have your cake and eat it too, because now you have a whole cast iron pan full of that ooey gooey richness. Now, let's bake...

This recipe calls for an 8" cast iron pan, which is enough for 2-3 people in my book...you certainly could go with a larger cast iron pan, and adjust the ingredient list accordingly...

1 bag mini marshmallows                            2 7 oz. Hershey bars
1 box graham crackers

Heat oven to 425.  Break up the Hershey bar into the scored squares and put in pan...it doesn't need to be an exact break, but the two bars should more than cover the pan.  Sprinkle the mini marshmallows so that chocolate is completely covered.  Place pan in oven and bake anywhere from 5-8 minutes, making sure to keep an eye on the marshmallows so they don't burn.
