Cake it Pretty: Valentine's Day S'mores

Tuesday, January 17, 2012C Riches




Hello and Happy New Year 2012!

This is my first post of 2012 here at Bird's Party.  I know we are only in the middle of January  but my head is spinning with  new exciting ideas for this year - I'm thinking Mother's Day, Summer, and even Fall. I can't wait to share some of my new recipes and baking tips with you as I hope stop by here more frequently. I promise!

Valentine's Day is around the corner and I wanted share with Bird's Party readers  a really yummy treat you can make for your friends, dear ones, children or for yourself. I'm a giver so I gave some to my friend's kids and to my Zumba instructor for her kids.




These Valentine's Day S'mores may seem to be  little too complicated to make, but  in fact the most time consuming to make are  Perfect Graham Crackers , but even so they are  totally worth the time because they are delicious.

They are perfect to munch on alone, drizzled with some dark chocolate or you can use them to make these festive Valentine's Day S'mores.





Valentine's Day S'mores Recipe


What you'll  need:
  • Perfect Graham Crackers -RECIPE - makes about 50 (depends on the size of the cookie cutter)
  • Homemade Marshmallows - RECIPE  - makes about 20 heart cut outs( amount depends on the size of the cookie cutter)I decided to make them extra special by adding 1/2 cup dry cranberries into the whipped batter just before spreading  it in the pan. You can also use cherries if you'd like or bit of mini chocolate chips would be lovely too.

  • Dipping Chocolate- Merckens Chocolate Wafers, about 2-3 cups
  • How to Put Sandwich Cookie Together -Once you bake your cookies and make marshmallow cut outs you can make sandwich cookies.



In a heat proof bowl and over the pot with simmering water melt the chocolate wafers. Use a tiny bit of melted chocolate to adhere cookies to the marshmallow, you can either spoon some chocolate onto the cookies or spoon slightly cooled chocolate into the sandwich bag and pipe chocolate  onto the cookies. How to fill  a zipoc/sandich bag with chocolate. Once you sandwich cookies and marshmallow together let the chocolate set. Then if desired dip  1/2 of  the sandwich in the chocolate, shake of the excess and let harden.
Store S'mores in the airtight container in a cool place.

Serving Suggestion : microwave for 3-5 seconds and enjoy
