Whether your cartoon character treat looks like the real thing or not, your child will get a kick out of this themed s’more recipe.
Here’s What You’ll Need:
· Graham crackers
· Decorative gel icing in orange and blue
· Food coloring – a dark color such as blue or green
· Chocolate sprinkles
· White chocolate
· Milk or dark chocolate
· Optional: Opal or silver pearlescent sugar
Here’s What to Do:
1. Sculpt Olaf’s head. You can cut off two diagonals – one on each side – from the marshmallow (DO NOT let our child use the knife). Or, if your child demands on doing it herself, have her bite the marshmallow and pull it apart.
2. Decorate the head. Use orange gel icing to make the nose and the blue (or food coloring) for the eyes and mouth. Add two sprinkles for the eyebrows. You can also use decorative candy eyes. Remove these before your child eats the s’more as they may not melt and pose a choking hazard.
3. Cut or shave the dark or milk chocolate (again, do this for your child). Pike three pieces through the top of the head as hair strands. Poke two pieces into the sides (one on each side) of another marshmallow.
4. Stack the marshmallows, adding a third on the bottom, on a graham cracker and white chocolate base. The white chocolate is the “snow.”
5. Add an icy look with blue gel frosting. Drip a few lines over Olaf or on the white chocolate.
6. Microwave the stack to melt Olaf. Microwaves vary in strength, so you may need to make adjustments based on your model. I popped mine in for 7 seconds.
7. Sandwich the now-melted snowman with another graham cracker.
8. Garnish the s’more with pearlescent sugar for a freezing Frozen look.
My son likes to say I’m the most over-protective mom in the world. I’m really not, but you do need to test the s’more before your child touches or eats it to make sure that it’s not too hot. The marshmallow or gel icing may heat up too much in the microwave. Let Olaf chill out for a few minutes before eating.
