I think I’ll go for a walk outside now
The summer sun’s callin’ my name
I just can’t stay inside all day
I gotta get out, get me some of those rays

Everybody’s smilin’, sunshine day
Everybody’s laughin’, sunshine day
Everybody seems so happy today
It’s a sunshine day…..

Yeah, that song is running through my head because it really is a sunshine day. And besides old Brady classics, I can’t stop thinking about some good ole backyard summer entertaining. You know the kind – co*cktails in mason jars, burgers on the grill, bug spray, and the number one outdoor dessert. S’mores. S-M-O-R-E-S.

But before we talk about the s’mores I gotta tell you guys that my taste buds are having a flashback. Before I became a mature 30-something mommy who sips champagne and drinks fancypants IPA beers with her hubby, I was a 20-something party girl who loved light beers, wine coolers, vodka sodas and Arbor Mist. Give me something fruity, and I was a happy camper.

Now that I’m living it up postpartum after 9 months of sobriety, I can’t be bothered with any serious alcohol. I’m all fun in the sun and no pretense. Enter Arbor Mist. If there was a wine that was meant to be drunk in a mason jar by the campfire while eating s’mores, it’s the Mist.

Speaking of those s’mores…. That’s another little something I used to do in my pre-mommy days. I used to make s’mores all the time. Fireplace s’mores, campfire s’mores, even microwave s’mores. Ok, let’s be honest, it was mostly microwave s’mores because this girl don’t camp much.

Since I’m a grown up now and drinking new grownup Arbor Mist flavors like Blackberry Merlot, I decided to add a little grownup-ness to my s’mores. We still got the graham and the ‘mallow but now we’re taking it up a notch with rich dark chocolate, sweet strawberries and cooling fresh mint leaves. Oh yeah. Sure you can roast up those ‘mallows in your backyard firepit if you got one but you can also just pop them into the oven for a quick broil. Same result.

Ooey gooey goodness. All over your face. No, seriously, if you don’t have chocolate on your cheeks you ain’t doing it right.

P.S. You guys should visit Simple Entertaining Social Hub for more great entertaining ideas.

Cook Time 2 minutes mins

Total Time 2 minutes mins

Course Dessert

Servings 8

Ingredients

  • 16 whole-wheat graham cracker squares
  • 8 dark chocolate squares
  • 8 marshmallows
  • 16 strawberry slices
  • 2-3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves

Instructions

  • Heat the oven broiler on high. Put the marshmallows on a foil-lined baking sheet and broil for 1-2 minutes or until they're good and brown on top. Keep your eye on the 'mallows because they can burn quick. Alternately, you can roast the marshmallows in an outdoor fire.

  • Add one piece of chocolate to a graham cracker square. Top with the marshmallow, 2 strawberry slices and a few chopped mint leaves. Cover with the other graham cracker square and press down lightly. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.

  • The heat from the marshmallow should melt the chocolate. If it doesn't, 20 seconds in the microwave should do the trick.

  • Scarf. Preferably outside.

    Those look way too delicious. My husband has NEVER had a s’more! Apparently they are mostly an American thing 🙂 My children will grow up knowing the bliss that is a s’more. I love this grown up version.

    P.S.– not sure how you would fix this, but your recipe rater won’t allow 5 stars to be given. I’ve noticed several times I’ve tried to add 5 stars, and it changes it to 3 or 4 stars. I can’t figure out how to make it stick to 5.

      Thanks Michelle! I can’t believe your hubby hasn’t had a s’more. That must be changed now! When I met my husband he had never had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. 🙂 Not sure what’s wrong with the recipe rater… thanks for letting me know! I’ll look into fixing it this week!

    I have to admit, I’ve never had a smores either and I’ve done a ton of camping. I just love the roasted marshmallows so much that I haven’t bothered with more but these ones are definitely worth trying. Love the combo of chocolate and strawberries. Such a fun post, Michelle.
    Do I have to have a baby to be a grown up cos I still feel like a kid!

      Haha I still feel like a kid too Robyn! I can’t believe you’ve never had a s’more either!!! The roasted marshmallow is so much better with chocolate. 🙂 🙂

    What a fun twist on an old favourite and being able to cook the marshmallows inside is genius as we don’t exactly have a yard and a bon fire facilities anymore living here in HK. LOL How is your sweet little guy doing? Sharing and pinning, of course!

    Thanks to an American mom, I’ve had smores growing up! We use to roast our marshmallows on candles, put some chocolate (usually Bourneville) on a digestive biscuit and munch! So good! I am liking the addition of mint and strawberries!

    • Strawberry, Mint and Dark Chocolate S'mores - Healthy Recipe Ecstasy (21)healthyrecipeecstasy says

      That’s awesome that you roasted s’mores on candles!! I’ve never done that. I have done it in the fireplace though!
