I’ve made s’mores for Christmas, Hanukkah, Valentine’sDay, Halloween and Thanksgiving (those even had yams in them!). So, now it’s time for a St. Patrick’s Day treat. I recently made chocolate-mint cookie truffle balls. I was planning on carrying that theme onto the s’mores. Then I happened to buy a box of Lucky Charms (they were on sale and do have shamrocks in them). And this is what happened…
Here’s What You’ll Need:
· Lucky Charms – Ok, you don’t actually need the cereal (does anyone eat that part?). Pick out the marshmallow pieces. You know that’s what you were going to do with it anyways.
· Mini marshmallows – We used green and yellow.
· Graham crackers
· Mint-chocolate candies
· 1 banana – Why not add something nutritious to this very sweet snack?
· Shamrock sprinkles
· Vanilla wafer cookies
Here’s What to Do:
1. Blend the vanilla wafers into a fine dust using a food processor. Set them aside for later.
2. Line the first graham cracker with chocolate.
3. Add a layer of Luck Charms marshmallows.
4. Cover the St. Patrick’s Day themed marshmallows with a layer of green and yellow mini ones.
5. Microwave the stack for 15 seconds. It’s March and it’s unlikely that you’re going outside to toast the marshmallows over a campfire. The microwave is a quick, easy way to melt the marshmallows. Microwaves vary in strength, so you may need more or less time. You’ll melt the chocolate and mini marshmallows, the other rainbow and shamrock ones aren’t likely to change.
6. Cover the stack with another graham cracker.
7. Slice one banana to make ‘gold coins’.
8. Cover the top graham with the slices.
9. Sprinkle the shamrocks and vanilla wafers (it looks like gold dust) onto the bananas.
