Here's a nice way to change up your s'mores.
S'mores fudge, is another way to savor those campfire favorites, s'mores, without a campfire.
This particular fudge is quite simple to prepare, and not too fussy to put together. Take the time to toast the marshmallows to give it the true s'mores touch, if you like. You won't be disappointed by the creamy texture of the chocolate.
When making fudge, I find it's better make it in single batches rather than doubling the ingredients. cut into small pieces and store at room temperature, for a fun treat for kids of all ages.
2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1  oz can sweetened condensed milk
3 Tbsp butter, divided
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 cup mini marshmallows, divided
1  oz mini fudge grahams [or 3 graham crackers roughly broken]
>>Line a 9 x 9 inch baking pan with foil.
>>Use 1 Tbsp softened butter to butter the bottom and sides. Set aside.
>>Roughly chop the fudge grahams.
>>On the stove top in a heavy bottomed saucepan, melt together the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, 2 Tbsp butter and salt.
>>Cook over medium, stirring until completely smooth.
>>Remove from the heat and add the vanilla. Mix well.
>>Mix in 1/2 of the chopped fudge grahams and 2 cups of mini marshmallows. Stir until evenly distributed, then pour into the pan.
>>Spread evenly then top with the remaining chopped fudge grahams and mini marshmallows.
>>Press gently into the top of the warm fudge.
>>Brown the marshmallows under the broiler [do not walk away] or using a pastry torch, if desired.
>>Chill for at least 4 hours before cutting.
>>Lift from the pan using the foil. Peel back to cut into equal pieces.
TEA PAIRING SUGGESTIONS
Since this is August, you may want to pair it with an iced tea rather than hot.
A smokey Assam on ice with a dash of milk/cream goes well, or an iced matcha would complement the flavors in the brownie.
