Autumn can still be a beautiful evening where you can enjoy a fire pit outside or just fire up the barbecue for... S'mores! Also a highly recommended dessert with a winter barbecue with hot coco and mulled wine. There is only a very good chance that it is just pouring and you would rather cocoon under a blanket on the couch.
Fortunately, you can also enjoy S'mores then. Brenda cooks has described a very nice invention for this: the S'Mores from the microwave. And they are just as tasty!

S'mores is a typical American delicacy that is often prepared on the barbecue. Two cookies with chocolate and marshmallow being heated. Delicious.
The first official recipe for a s'more came out in the 1927 Girl Scout guidebook, Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts . While the book was intended to provide advice on how to be a good Girl Scout (always ask a parent's permission before hiking) , its legendary legacy is the "Some More." The recipe (from troop leader Loretta Scott Crew) to satisfy 16 hungry scouts' hunger is: 16 graham crackers, 8 bars of dark chocolate and 16 marshmallows. Then it says the marshmallows should be toasted until 'crispy and gooey'. Then you put the marshmallow on a chocolate bar and between two graham crackers and -voila- you have a 'Some More'. Nobody knows exactly when the name was shortened to simply 's'more'. But hey... who cares ;-) Source: Foodandwine.com
So the microwave also does the trick
It's a bit crazy to put a cookie in the microwave, but the result is super tasty. Don't heat the S'more for too long, because before you know it the marshmallow is too big/too runny. As it is heated, the bacon expands. Because of this it is also sufficient to use 1 marshmallow. The whole biscuit will fill itself during heating.
And as you can see in the video, it is quite difficult to eat this neatly ;)
Quantity: 1 S'more
Preparation time: 5 minutes
• 2 biscuits*
• 1 piece of (dark) chocolate (large enough to 'invest' the biscuit)
• 1 marshmallow
*biscuits are fine, as the American Graham crackers are rare here, but -trust me- a digestive or bastogne biscuit also works very well!
- Place one biscuit upside down and spread the chocolate over it.
- Place the marshmallow on the chocolate and cover with the second biscuit. Place the S'more on a plate and put it in the microwave at 750 watts for about 40 seconds.
Nice to know: The heat of the marshmallow will melt the chocolate, so the chocolate will not melt from the microwave.

Watching videos is fun when you're cocooning. See here how Yolanda from How to cake it makes a Giant S'Mores cake.
