Late night snack

Smores around the camp fire are not good. You are fooling yourself when you say they are. The marshmallows are usually burned, the chocolate never melts, and they always some how gets a little dirt or ash in it.
Smores in the oven however are sooooo good! It is the perfect "I need a little something" snack. I make them for myself all the time.  What is great about them is that they are fairly small calorically, a small square of chocolate, one marshmallow and 1 graham cracker broken in half. Although it is small, it is very satisfying (satisfying as a dessert should satisfy, not a meal). 
So next time you are at the store, stock up on big marshmallows, symphony chocolate, and graham crackers. I put the graham cracker on a baking sheet, one square of chocolate with a marshmallow on top, and pop it in the oven. I turn it on to 350, and by the time the oven is heated up, it is ready. Top it with the other half of the graham cracker and you are good to go.
Make a whole tray for dessert, and everyone will love you.

Thank you and amen! I've been saying that for years and have yet to find anyone to agree with me. They say I'm not authentic. Whatev-- who wants cold chocolate with a burned marshmallow?
