The addition of evaporated milk turns a campfire favorite into a tasty fondue. This recipe yields just over 1 cup but can easily be doubled.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 2–4
- ½ cup evaporated milk
- ⅔ cup graham cracker crumbs
- 30 mini marshmallows
- 25 regular-sized marshmallows, or as needed for dipping
- ¾ cup semisweet chocolate chips
Combine the evaporated milk and mini marshmallows in a metal bowl and place on top of a saucepan half-filled with simmering water. Stir frequently on low heat, making sure the mixture doesn't come to a boil.
When the marshmallows are melted, add the chocolate chips. Melt the chocolate on low to medium-low heat, stirring frequently and continuing to make sure the mixture doesn't boil.
When the chocolate is melted, stir in the graham cracker crumbs.
Transfer the fondue mixture to the fondue pot and set on the burner. Keep the fondue warm on low heat.
Serve with the marshmallows for dipping.
A favorite snack of the Girl Scouts since the 1920s, s'mores are made by combining chocolate with graham crackers and marshmallows. The name s'mores is reputed to be a shortening of the phrase “give me some more.” Traditionally, s'mores are enjoyed around the campfire by placing toasted marshmallows and chocolate on graham crackers. The heat from the marshmallows melts the chocolate.
