Sometimes it’s 10 o’clock at night and you get the urge to bake, and make something up. It’s the lazy late night baking, where you don’t even want to put together and wash the mixer, so you settle on using the whisk. I decided that I would do something simple in that case, and went for the first thing that popped into my head… Brownie! Perfect, except for the lack of cocoa powder in my cupboard. Brownies cousin Blondie then, with some quick chocolate fudge for the top.

The s’more is about as north Americain as it gets (apart from maple syrup and hockey). This traditional campfire treat is a must for every campfire adventure. It is fairly simple, two graham crackers sandwich a roasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate. Being how I am, I decided that taking store bought graham crackers and marshmallows to my boyfriends chalet was unacceptable, especially considering that he has never had a s’more. Graham crackers are fairly simple to make, the trick is rolling the dough out between to sheets of parchment, then chilling it before you shape the cookies. I played with some recipes found in the Miette cookbook as well as the ones found the Bouchon bakery book. These treats look amazing if you toast the edges with a torch.
