Awhile back I created a graham cracker recipe. Maple or honey, you pick. Then, I decided we needed to make a chocolate version. I love making this recipe and our dairy intolerant folks appreciate being able to participate in the S'more action as well.
Because of Independence Day, which quickly crept up on me, I made a patriotic version of the s'more. You could consider it a double chocolate s'more.
Follow the regular honey graham cracker version here EXCEPT add 1/3 cup of cocao powder to the dry ingredients. To keep this dairy free I use cold vegan butter sticks. It keeps the dough the same consistency as butter would. Roll out your dough and cut out star shapes (or any shape you prefer). Add holes. Bake as directed.
To keep everything uniform I made a batch of marshmallows. You can follow the recipe here and here. The only change I made was to pour the marshmallow into a jelly roll pan instead of a 13x9 dish. It kept the marshmallows a little thinner making it easier to cut out and eat!
Once the marshmallow had set up I cut out star shapes using the same size star I had previously used on the cracker.
Now, normally I would take the marshmallow shape and dip all the sides in powdered sugar to keep it from being sticky. Not this time!
This time I dipped the sticky sides of the star in patriotic sprinkles.
Set your dipped stars aside. Melt some chocolate and spread the chocolate, one side at a time, onto the star cracker.
Place your star marshmallow onto the chocolate. Now go ahead and spread the chocolate on the other side to complete your s'more.
You can use any combination of red, white, and blue sprinkles you have.
You also don't have to do the chocolate version. Keep it just honey.
You can make your crackers and marshmallows a day ahead of time if you are planning to serve something like this at a party. I would wait to assemble them however until the day of. Which means don't cut out your marshmallow shapes until you are ready to assemble. You need the sides sticky to hold the sprinkles. This way they are at their best.
To make an everyday version of the chocolate s'more, cut out square shapes, add holes, and bake. Roast store bought marshmallows or homemade. Make s'more as usual. Still yummy!
Three cheers for the red, white, and blue!!
