Growing up by the ocean has always meant having bonfires on warm summer nights. Some of my favorite memories were spent at the beach with my besties roasting marshmallows and telling stories. Although there’s nothing wrong with the traditional combination of milk chocolate, store-bought marshmallows, and graham crackers, I’ve recently made a tasty discovery: s’mores with a gourmet twist.
I decided to try my hand at homemade marshmallows (Martha Stewart has a delicious recipe for them here), and was pleasantly surprised by the outcome. They turned out rich, fluffy and worthy of the best s’mores around. Since the marshmallows turned out so decadent, I knew that they would be a perfect match for my favorite Little Market fair trade chocolate bars. Read on and prepare your taste buds for the ultimate summer s’more combinations…
