S'mores with Mounds Candy Bars

Yum
Special Note:  I had this recipe scheduled to post today before I heard the horrific news about the tornado that struck Moore, Oklahoma.  I just want to convey my deepest sympathy to all those affected.  My thoughts and prayers are with this town that battled this unfathomable storm.  I am just heart broken at the loss of lives.... especially over 20 elementary school children.  Thank you to the first responders and all those helping in the aftermath of this storm.  Please keep this town and the lives lost in your thoughts today....

Now onto the post....

 I love chocolate and coconut together.  So why not add this delicious combination to a s'more.  That's just what we did and they were fantastic treats.  You can make these over the campfire as they are done traditionally, or you can do the at home stove top and microwave version.  The gas stove helps you toast the marshmallows over an open flame and the microwave helps make the inside totally ooey-gooey.  I am not that outdoorsy so the in home version is the perfect treat for me.

Note:  If you do not have Mounds candy bars available to you, simply substitute a Hershey chocolate bar and some baking coconut together to make the same wonderful chocolate/coconut combination. 
 

  Ingredients:
package of plain graham crackers
package of large marshmallows
bag of  Mounds Candy bars-snack size  (or substitute coconut and chocolate)


Directions:
Toast marshmallows over open flame. I used my gas stove flame.  Then place on top of graham cracker and place in microwave for 10-15 seconds to heat inside. 


 Place Mounds candy bar (snack size).  Place graham cracker and sandwich all ingredients together.  Enjoy.

  3. This is an insanely great idea! I might make these with Dudette when she gets home from school today.

    Like you, my heart is broken over what happened in Oklahoma yesterday. I gave Dudette an extra big hug after I heard the news and it was hard to let her go.

  6. a very sweet tribute Ramona - it's important to keep those things in mind even when we write posts ahead of time. <3 My heart is with them as well.

    Also, I never would have thought to use mounds in a s'mores, but omg why not?!? It's a brilliant flavor combo. :)

  12. I will take two please. This reminds me of the S'mores my husband decided to make with ice cream. I think it might be due to Memorial Day but I cannot get S'mores out of my mind. These just made it so much worst...in the best way possible.
