S’MORMON Ebelskivers

S'MORMON ebelskiver.jpg

Ingredients:

Graham Flour Pancake Batter (recipe)
Chocolate Chips
Marshmallow Cream Cheese Sauce

Commentary:

Ebelskivers are a Danish dessert and, since I have Danish blood, I had to experiment with them! The cookbook that inspired my thinking is Ebelskivers by Kevin Crafts. It features a variety of sweet and savory ebelskiver adaptations, including a recipe for s’mores. I wanted to avoid graham cracker crumbs, though, so I opted for the recipe above. They turned out tasty and fun, but need further experimentation.

S’MORMON PIE

Ingredients:

Graham Cracker Recipe (link)
S’more Pie Recipe (link)

Commentary:

This is basically a S’more Pie with a homemade graham cracker crust, rather than one made from graham cracker crumbs. For the crust I used a graham cracker recipe and shaped it into the pan, baking it before I added the filling. I really like the S’more Pie recipe I followed, but I’m not totally sold on the Graham Cracker recipe. It’s a little too strong on the molasses side, while I prefer the light sweetness of honey. But go with what you like.

I made this recipe for our ward Pioneer Day Celebration. The pie was still warm when we arrived (I was too late for the pie judging) and people loved it.

British S’MORMON

Ingredients:

1. Homemade Digestives (recipe)
2. Cadbury Dairy Milk
3. Marshmallow Creme

Commentary:

This recipe was the brainchild of my brother, Alan, who spent two years as a missionary in England. Rather than buy a pack of Digestives, I found a recipe to make my own from scratch. They turned out pretty good, but the baking time was a bit excessive so keep your eye on the prize as they bake — for S’MORMON purposes I prefer them soft and malleable, rather than brittle and crackery. The Cadbury Dairy Milk was excellent, but my brother recommended using a Galaxy bar, which is unfortunately more difficult to track down on this side of the pond.

Traditional S’MORMON

Ingredients:

1. Homemade Graham Crackers (recipe)
2. Your choice of chocolate
3. Your choice of marshmallow

Commentary:

Really all that’s essential with this recipe is to make your own homemade graham crackers. There are several recipes online. I’m not completely sold on the recipe we used, but I also didn’t follow it exactly (they certainly didn’t take 25 minutes to bake, so keep your eye on them). When we made these S’MORMONS, we used marshmallow creme and a variety bag of Ghirardelli chocolate squares.

White Chocolate Snickerdoodle S’MORMON


Ingredients:

1. Snickerdoodles (recipe)
2. Lindt White Chocolate
3. Marshmallow Creme

Commentary:

This recipe features a mild, cinnamon-sugar flavor. Originally, I had tried a Ghirardelli Cinnamon Crunch Square, but I found its cinnamon flavor clashed with the cinnamon flavor in the Snickerdoodle. For a more dynamic flavor, experiment with other chocolate flavors!

Lemon Coconut Dark Chocolate S’MORMON

Ingredients:

1. Lemon Cookies
2. Lindt Excellence Dark Chocolate Coconut Bar
3. Marshmallow Creme

Commentary:

We tried this recipe for the first time with our friends, Mike and Jen, when we met up on a Monday night for Family Home Evening. It turned out even better than I expected, with a delicate and dynamic flavor that made me want to eat it slowly so I could study and savor each bite. The lemon and coconut played well together but maintained their distinctiveness, and the dark chocolate added a disarming richness. Submit to the awesomeness of the Lemon Coconut Dark Chocolate S’MORMON!

Pumpkin Candy Corn S’MORMON

Made with Repix (http://repix.it)

Ingredients:

1. Pumpkin Cookies
2. Hershey’s Candy Corn Creme Bar
3. Marshmallow Creme

Commentary:

A unique and tasty October snack, assuming Hershey keeps making the Candy Corn Creme Bar… The Pumpkin Cookies featured in the above photo are a family favorite because they are soft, tasty, and simple to make. You only need two ingredients: a Spice Cake mix and a can of pureed pumpkin!

A variation on this S’MORMON can be made with a Candy Corn Peep that comes dipped in white chocolate. It looks a bit like Donald Trump hair. In that spirit, “Make Dessert Great Again with a S’MORMON!”
