Mini Monets and Mommies: Cherry Red Coconut S'mores

Cherry Red Coconut S'mores

I’m mostly all about kids’ art activities, but occasionally I take on a child-friendly recipe or two. I use the word “recipe” loosely – as I’m not a cook, not do I pretend to be one. I joke that I can only make stacked things; which leaves me with a half decent lasagna and s’mores. Recently, I’ve been on a s’mores kick. A few weeks ago I made pink princess s’mores. Strawberries were in season, so I added them to the “recipe” for a pink marshmallow hue.

Cherries are everywhere right now, so today I took on cherry red coconut s’mores. I have a major sweet tooth, and these definitely quieted my sugar craving.  And yes, these are as tasty as they sound!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·        Marshmallows

·        Cherries (the real ones, not the bottled maraschino ones)

·        Graham crackers

·        Chocolate

·        Red crystalized sugar

·        Coconut

Here’s What to Do:

1.     Color the marshmallows red. Hint: This is a great opportunity to add in a lesson on colors with your child. My son is 12 and thought that the dyed treats looked like they were covered in blood—so go ahead and save this one for Halloween also. Put a few marshmallows in a bowl. Squeeze cherries over them. Paint the remaining white spaces with the leftover cherry mush.

2.     Sprinkle coconut over the cherry-covered marshmallows, covering them completely.

3.     Stack the s’more. Graham cracker, chocolate, marshmallow graham cracker.

4.     Heat it up. While I prefer campfire s’mores, the cherry and coconut-covered marshmallows seemed to do better in the microwave. Do this step for your child, and make sure that the s’mores aren’t too hot before she eats them. I heated my sugary stack for 10 seconds. But, microwaves vary, so you will need to adjust for your appliance.

5.     Shake glittery crystalized sugar over the whole thing. You can find this sparkly red sugar in the baking aisle or you can make your own by mixing red food coloring with course sugar.
