Some foods just scream summer—corn on the cob, watermelon, ice cream, anything BBQ and, of course, the quintessential campfire snack of choice—s’mores! Well, not only is it practically a rite of passage for the summers of childhood, the s’more also allows us to celebrate National Marshmallow Toasting Day (it’s tomorrow, if you were wondering) with gusto! We even hosted a campout party to celebrate.
I know there are s’more purists out there who think a true s’more uses just three ingredients and MUST use a certain brand of chocolate, but we are mixing things up. We are daring you to try this ooey gooey recipe with a little extra salt, a little extra sweet and a little extra crunch. Yum, yum, yum!
Salted Caramel Pretzel S’mores
One plain graham cracker of choice (cracked into two squares)
One square of your favorite chocolate that has caramel inside
One thin salted pretzel
One package of Huggies® Wipes (the ooey gooey mess can’t clean itself)
Place your chocolate square on the bottom graham square and place your pretzel on top of the chocolate. You can also warm your chocolate if you like it extra melty, but it only needs a few seconds or it will be too soft to handle. Toast your marshmallow to perfection. Place marshmallow on top of the pretzel and place the second graham square on top. Give it a gentle squish. The salt from the pretzel mixes with the caramel from the chocolate for a sweet and salty delight. Plus if you love the taste of chocolate covered pretzels, this s’mores recipe will satisfy all of your cravings.
But wait, first things first, don’t even think about serving up these s’mores to kids without first being armed with your trusty wipes. I mean, have you ever tried to clean up melted marshmallow with a napkin? The worst, right? You end up with paper all over you and no dent in the mess. Huggies® Wipes have triple layers, which means they are thick enough to tackle a mess like sticky marshmallow and caramel, but they are still gentle enough for your child’s sensitive skin.
Huggies® Wipes are always at the ready, and I still carry a travel pack of wipes with me everywhere even though I have no more babies in diapers (sigh), and I’m loving Huggies® snazzy travel containers. You can learn more about Huggies® and their wipes here. Seriously, don’t leave home without them; you’ll thank me the next time you experience the dreaded sticky fingers.
Summer is messy, kids are messy—don’t let the fear of sticky gooey mess prevent you from enjoying something extra yummy like these s’mores! Embrace the mess, just make sure you’re armed with some wipes to clean it all up when the fun is over.
