This s’more is tall, dark, and handsome—except actually very squat. A tall drink of water, but crispy, salty, and in no way hydrating.
It’s a Burnt Cinnamon Toast & Chocolate S'more, and takes all you know about a s’more and makes it more—the most—seductive:
Trade sturdy graham crackers for soft cinnamon swirl bread that you’ve charred to a deep golden brown (or burnt, if you really live on the wild side).
Your classic Hershey’s can sit this one out. Go for dark chocolate.
Sprinkle that dark chocolate with flaky salt.
And while we’re at it, the marshmallows should be chocolate, too: store-bought or homemade.
Why—you ask—why should you do this to your s’more? It’s what we imagined when we thought about our truest, deepest, darkest desire for a s’more: burnt intentionally, and all over. Salt, spice, and chocolate screaming. And, frankly, just more s’more: Using bread instead of crackers turns an amuse-bouche of a dessert into a spectacle.
- 8 slices cinnamon swirl bread
- 4 chocolate marshmallows (store-bought or homemade)
- Dark chocolate
