S'mores..in the microwave.

Huh? How does that work, you may ask.
Better yet, how does that taste ?
Well, my children and I were bound and determined to have s'mores yesterday.
Despite the fact that we weren't outside.
We are not on a camping trip.
We don't have a fire, so toasting the marshmallows is out of the question.
So, since the top element of the toaster oven is out (of course) we elected to use the microwave.
I was unsure at first, but as I watched my kids break their chocolate pieces, place them on the crackers, anticipate the melted, sticky reward, and pop the concoction into the machine, I saw them having fun.

Granted, the marshmallows were a bit chewy, the graham crackers kind of soft, and the chocolate was still hard in the middle..but buddy..s'more we had.

mmm... love me some s'mores. But they are not quite the same without that lovely browning effect that a good glowing ember give them.
