Cooking Idea - Melted S'Mores

Melted S'Mores
Originally uploaded by toastfloats.
Cooking is not my thing. I’m not as well trained as my mother or as highly competent as my mother in law. And god knows I do not want to try to enter the highly competitive market of Galley Chef authors. However, I do reasonably well at Improv Cooking which actually proves rather useful to cruisers. When something works on Don Quixote, I’ll share it.

So in this case, I have a firepit tip which originated with Dr C -- a man I am convinced was an engineer in a former life.

According to my husband, the problem with s’mores is that the chocolate is solid and cold. The contrast to the hot, fluffy marshmallow isn’t right. Therefore, Dr C used a combination of unburnt wood and flat stones to create a platform practically in the fire on which we could melt the chocolate. A secondary benefit is that the position also smokes the graham cracker, if you can believe it. Takes s'mores to a completely new level.
