I was recently invited to the house of good friends for dinner, and as always, I volunteered to bring the dessert. I really had a lot of fun creating a new riff on the s’more, and then one of my friends who shall remain nameless, took it to new heights (in flames) I should say.

First, I made homemade graham cookies and marshmallows that I cut to fit on top of the cookies. Then I blowtorched the marshmallows ahead and put cookies with marshmallows in between them to create sandwiches. And finally I dipped half of the s’more sandwiches into melted chocolate. OOOOHHHHH SOOOOO Goooooood!!!!

When dinner was over I brought out the s’mores, and before I knew it my friend had poured a small amount of Bacardi 151 proof rum over his and lit it on fire. To say that my dessert, or rather HIS dessert was the high “light” of the evening was an understatement.

Thankfully, I removed his napkin from the table at the peak of flaming! It really was like being at a real camp fire — almost.

Happy Baking!
