Sweet and Salty S’mores

Sweet & Salty Smores Perfect for Adding a Pazazz to the Plain Smores

Every time our family goes camping, it’s a given that we will roast marshmallows by the open fire and have S’mores after dinner. We love the taste of melted chocolate with a gooey marshmallow squished in between two graham crackers, but on this day, I had a wonderful idea. Earlier in the day I was in a snacking kind of mood, so I grabbed a marshmallow, popped it in my mouth, then I grabbed a pretzel and popped that in my mouth and gave the two a nice crunch. The sweet and salty flavors gave me a great idea. I decided that night by the open fire I would create my very own version of the S’mores and call it Sweet and Salty S’mores.

Sweet and Salty S'mores

The Sweet and Salty S’mores concoction is simple. I used graham crackers, Hershey’s chocolate (only the best), marshmallows and Pretzel Crisps from the Snack Factory. The Pretzel Crisps are great because the flat shape makes it  easier to put between the graham crackers.

Sweet and Salty S'mores Ingredients

Before you roast your marshmallow, make sure that you prep the pretzels. Since they come in all sizes, I simply crunched them up and placed them on a plate with the other items. When you make S’mores, you have to work fast so make sure that you have everything laid out on a plate. If you are not prepared, then it could be tragic.

After I assembled my Sweet and Salty S’mores, I slowly brought it to my mouth and took a nice size bite. It was amazing. The warm melted chocolate and the sweet gooey roasted marshmallow that was combined with the salty pretzel was amazing. I sat there and wondered what took me so long to think of this. I will never look at another S’more the same way.
