Just because school started back, doesn’t mean you have to give up on the the camping-out fun! These Sweet and Salty S’mores will be the perfect treat to surprise your kiddos after a long day at school. The sweetness coupled with the saltiness really makes this treat irresistibly delicious!
Want to make it even more fun? Build a tent in your living room and eat s’mores on the floor! I know. If you’re a mom of more than one kiddo, it could get pretty messy—but, hey! That’s why there are brooms, vacuums and mops!
We made this fun treat to celebrate an impromptu “Kid’s Day.” My hubby and I just wanted to show the kids a little extra attention and love. The kids woke up to cookies and milk for breakfast, s’mores and a tent around mid-morning, take-out for lunch, hot cocoa and board games in the afternoon—and very few chores. It felt great to give the kids a special day “just because.”
But, wait! There’s even more good news. Adults will love this treat too! My hubby asked for seconds–and he’s not a sweet-eater. Don’t worry. You don’t have to build a camp-fire to get these yummy munchies made, you only need an oven.
These are quick and simple too—my favorite kind of munchies to make. If you’re interested in a quick, sweet goody that has a salty crunch, you found it! Enjoy and share. If you have any variations to this recipe, please share your tips below! Don’t hold in the foodie knowledge!
40 Ritz crackers
3 Large Hershey Chocolate Bars
10 Large Marshmallows, cut in half
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. On an ungreased cookie sheet, place 20 of the Ritz crackers flat side up. Next, place one small rectangle of chocolate on top. Then, place a marshmallow half. Carefully top with another Ritz cracker. Repeat for all crackers. Bake for 10 minutes, or just until marshmallows are slightly melted. Remove from oven and let them cool slightly. Lastly, gently press down on the top cracker to level out the s’mores. Do not bake these goodies too long, as the crackers can become soft — eww! No one likes a soft, Ritz cracker! Enjoy your “camp-fire” treat. Yields: 20 S’mores
