If barbeque is a staple summertime meal, then s’mores are the designated dessert. The sweet, squishy, sticky, crunchy treat is delicious any time of year but tastes especially magical during summer days like today. The traditional three-ingredient s’mores are perfect as is, and if you’re anything like us, you likely have several happy childhood memories involving them.
And while we love a traditional s’more, we at Greeley Gallery also enjoy a slightly elevated version of the classic. Your kid-friendly s’more can upgrade to an adult-only recipe with one easy change. Plus, we have three flame-free methods to make them right in your kitchen. Ready to get started?
Stuff You’ll Need:
1 box of graham crackers
1 or more chocolate bars – or for a culinary boost, add a bit of Nutella
1 bag of large marshmallow puffs
For adult-versioned cannabis s’mores, swap out the regular chocolate bar with cannabis-infused Leif or Grace Note chocolate bars from Greeley Gallery.
Directions for Broiling Smores
Broiling your smores is a quick and easy way to make perfectly crispy s’mores in 5 minutes or less. All you gotta do is line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then lay down as many graham cracker squares as you wish and plop a fluffy marshmallow on top of them. Once the oven is ready, place the baking sheet about 5 inches from the heating element and allow the marshmallows to broil for between 3 and 5 minutes.
Every stove is different, so keep an eye on them and remove the baking sheet when they reach your ideal toastiness. Carefully place your chocolate squares on the toasted marshmallow and top it with another graham cracker to finish your s’more and enjoy! This option is especially great during a social gathering because you can prepare several at a time using the baking sheet.
S’mores in the Air Fryer
Turning on the oven when it’s already hot isn’t very enticing, which is why we have another way to create deliciously toasty smores at home without a flame, and without adding heat to your already cooking kitchen by using an air fryer instead.
Set it to 390° F and, similar to the oven, place a graham square and marshmallow inside and let it cook for about 5 minutes or so. Then remove from the fryer and complete the s’more by adding the chocolate and final graham. There you have it!
If you don’t have access to an oven or air fryer, have no fear, you can still make smores in the microwave. Unlike the previous two, you’ll want to microwave the chocolate this time too. Lay your graham cracker, marshmallow, and the chocolate piece on a microwave-safe plate or a paper napkin and place it in the microwave. Set it to microwave at Medium, or 50% power, for 10-second intervals until the marshmallow puffs up and the chocolate softens.
Don’t worry if the mallow grows large while cooking; it will shrink down once you remove it. Cooking s’mores in the microwave is convenient for a wide range of places and minimal external heat. The only downside to this option is that you’re forced to forego a crispy marshmallow exterior.
We can and do eat s’mores all year round, but something about summer makes them extra delicious. Even more so when we indulge in cannabis s’mores by including any mouth-watering cannabis chocolate options at Greeley Gallery. As a medicinal and recreational cannabis dispensary, we offer only the highest quality and locally produced cannabis products you can trust.
Our north Portland dispensary is open seven days a week between 7 am and 10 pm for your convenience. Be sure to stop by and stock up on delicious cannabis chocolate the next time you’re in the mood for s’mores.
