A very trendy local company put in a request last week for a hipster themed menu, naturally they wanted everything to be in canning jars labeled with hipster phrases and sayings. The menu consisted of three very simple yet delicious things; Chocolate dipped pretzels, Homer Simpson doughnuts, and banana s’mores with chili ganache a layer of streusel, and marshmallow topping.

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.
