S’Mores

Makes 6 S’Mores

Ingredients

6 whole low-fat graham crackers, split in half to make 6 sandwiches
3-4 tbsp fat-free sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
A dash of your favorite low-cal sweetener to taste
6 large sugar-free marshmallows or a handful of smaller ones
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

Note: If you can’t find sugar free marshmallows in your grocery store, you can easily make them at home with this recipe from Food.com.

In a microwave proof dish, heat the sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips on 50% heat in 15-second intervals until smooth. The slower the better. You don’t want to burn the chocolate.

Add the cocoa powder and stir until smooth again. Taste test and add a little bit of sweetener until you get it the way you want it. Stir in the vanilla extract.

Spread 1 tablespoon of chocolate on six of the graham crackers squares.

Warm your marshmallows over the fire or a grill. Put one on each chocolate covered graham cracker and sandwich with the remaining cracker.

If you’re stuck inside, you can assemble the sandwiches, wrap in foil and heat in 250-degree oven for about 10 minutes.

Want some alternatives to the traditional s’more? Try adding a little peanut butter, banana, apple or strawberry slices or try raspberry sauce if you’re not a chocolate lover.
