The first s'mores ever toasted and eaten may have been made by Girl Scouts or perhaps hungry campers who just happened to have the perfect trio of treats and an open flame. Either way, the discovery was epic and has become a nostalgic campfire classic. But every now and then you want a little variation on the old standard. And so we have dared to try and improve and Traeger'ize, if you will, the s'more.
We'll be introducing to you a few of our new favorite Traeger'ed s'mores recipes. (We promise, we won't stray too far from the classic combination.) So if you feel adventurous on your next camping trip, why not try a gooey s'mores reinvention?
GRILLED S'MORES REINVENTED
PREP TIME: 10 min
COOK TIME: 2 min
SERVES: 6 servings
RECOMMENDED PELLETS: Any
6 mini croissants, sliced in half
25 large marshmallows (or 3/4 cup of marshmallow cream)
8 ounces thin squares good-quality chocolate (use whichever kind you prefer - milk, bittersweet, white, fav candy bar, etc.)
Start the Traeger on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Preheat to 400 degrees F with the lid closed for 10 to 15 minutes.
Place the croissant halves on the grill grate, cut-side down and toast the croissants for only 1 minute. (They will toast quickly so keep a close eye on them.)
Remove from the grill and assemble the s'mores by layering in marshmallows and chocolate squares and top with the other croissant half to make a toasty croissant s'mores sandwich.
Place the croissant sandwiches on the grill and toast for 30 seconds to 1 minute to allow the chocolate to melt and marshmallows get a wee bit golden.
Remove the s'mores from the grill and serve warm while they're still gooey and chocolatey-messy.
