S'more treats, please (allergy friendly)

Yesterday, for "arts and crafts," Jude and I made a pan of brownies. Apparently they were more popular than I expected, because they disappeared between after school and this morning, when the last one disappeared into Matthew's lunchbox.   So that we would have some goodies for today and hopefully tomorrow, we made S'more Sandwiches.
Ingredients for our treats.

These were very easy.  I did the cooking parts, Jude did the assembling and dunking.

Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
If you have any no-stick foil, all the better.  (That stuff is AWESOME.  Marshmallow and other sugar syrup stuff just peels right off!)

Put about 3 Tbsp of margarine (or butter) in a shallow pot. 
Melt the butter, and add about 8 oz of marshmallows.  This was a 16 oz bag, so we eyeballed half.   
 Let the marshmallows melt, stirring frequently, until smooth.


To make these safe for everyone's allergies, we used Enjoy Life Foods Vanilla Honey Graham cookies. (They're free of all top 8 common allergens, plus a few others.)   Two boxes of cookies makes 14 sandwiches.   If you're using regular graham crackers, break each sheet in half so you have two squares of cookies.  Put about two tablespoons of marshmallow on the bottom half of a cookie. There's no need to be exact -- if they ooze a little, that's still yummy!  


Top with another cookie.  
GENTLY press down to make sure the top sticks to the marshmallow.  
Be careful not to press too hard...or else, they ooze.

 Lined up and waiting for chocolate!


Empty most of a 10 oz bag of chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl.  (In theory, you empty the entire bag,  but my sneaky little sous chef decided he wanted a snack.)

Place the bowl of chocolate in the microwave.  Set the microwave for 2 minutes, then stir.  Continue heating in 1 minute intervals, stirring after each, until smooth.

Chocolate is ready to go!  

Cover another cookie sheet with foil.

Dunk sandwiches in chocolate. Place on the second cookie sheet.

If you have extra chocolate left, drizzle over the cookies to decorate.  Try not to get any on the kitchen walls.

Enjoy -- and hope they survive until tomorrow!

We're sharing our snack today!  Please see what everyone else has brought to the buffet!

  1. Yum! I'm putting those cookies on my Whole Food shopping list so that I can make some of these. I bet they'd be great to share at a potluck, too.

  2. Oh this looks yummy! The only chocolate I can eat (at the grocery store that is).
