Even though s’mores are a summer fave, this hot chocolate version is ideal for winter time. The s’mores float is easily made in the oven and in no time at all the kids can have that outdoor camping feel in December or any season of the year.
S’mores Hot Chocolate with a Gooey Float
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
3 tablespoons Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme
1 graham cracker square
1 chocolate bar square (to fit on top of graham cracker)
Heat milk in a small pot until just warm and pour into a mug. Stir in chocolate syrup. Add marshmallow crème on top and allow to sit for a bit until cream settles into an even layer.
Place chocolate bar square on graham cracker square and top with marshmallow. Set s’more stack on a baking sheet. Heat broiler on high and place rack in the middle of oven. Set cookie sheet on rack and broil for 30 to 60 seconds – watching the whole time- until marshmallows are lightly browned. Remove from oven and place s’mores stack on marshmallow crème float topping hot chocolate.
Set up a s’mores brownie bar at a kid’s party and watch their faces light up! Instead of worrying about the combo of kids and a campfire at a party, make it easy on yourself by baking marshmallows in a casserole dish (think marshmallows topping yams for Thanksgiving) and let everyone simply scoop out the roasted marshmallows in a safe and unique way. Then, they can pile on the rest of the s’mores fixings along with their favorite candies as toppings.

S’mores aren’t for kids only! This Bailey’s elixir with s’mores embellishments is a fun flirty way to have your campfire-inspred cocktail and eat it too! (Come on, weren’t we all girl scouts or boy scouts at one time way back when?)
3 oz. Bailey’s Irish Cream Liqueur
1 oz. chocolate liqueur
For the rim and garnish:
1/4 cup chopped milk chocolate bar
1/4 cup finely ground graham cracker crumbs (2 graham crackers)
4” long bamboo skewers
Place chocolate on a microwave-safe saucer and melt chocolate in the microwave in 10-second increments; stir until smooth. Place graham cracker crumbs on another saucer.
Dip the rim of a Martini glass in the melted chocolate and then in the graham cracker crumbs.
Lightly coat the tips of the bamboo skewers with margarine and slide a couple of mini marshmallows on the tip. Flame the marshmallows with a match or lighter for about 10 seconds to lightly brown them.
Add liqueur ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain into the prepared glass to serve. Lay the marshmallow skewer across the top rim of the glass.
