Today I am going to tell you how I made this banana bread into one giant S’more.
I am not going to lie it is the messiest S’more you will ever eat. Like ever.
It’s messy. It’s gooey. It’s chocolatey. It’s bananay.
It’s also the best S’more you will ever eat.
Let me just say that banana bread and especially this Whole Wheat Graham Cracker Banana Bread makes the best base for a S’more.
Sorry, I had to.
I am not really sure how this idea came about.
I have wanted to make something involving the S’more for a while. I mean I have not one recipe involving marshmallows on this site. Not one.
I know this is crazy, but I have a marshmallow hater in the house. Who the heck hates marshmallows? Apparently, my dad. He’s weird. He says they’re too sugary. I mean yeah, but it’s all about the gooeyness and when they’re melty and chocolatey and all delicious, it’s like what’s not to like?
Originally, I was just gonna use good old marshmallows from the store, but then literally the day I was planning on making these I saw this post. Jessica amazes me every day. That women is genius. Anyway, once I saw her photos I knew I had to make those marshmallows.
Ok, so here’s the deal. Your gonna want to cut some thick slices of banana bread. Since the bread is extremely moist it breaks pretty easily, so you want some nice thick slices. Plus, um the banana bread is amazing all warm toastie and covered in chocolate and melty homemade marshmallows. Ok, so then slather on some peanut butter. Obviously this is not essential, but it’s good and we love peanut butter over here. Like that’s not already obvious. Ok, ok then the chocolate. Really you can use as little or as much as you want, but I used two squares and thought it was just the right amount. Finally the marshmallows. I used two not so thick ones only because I wanted the marshmallows to melt and was afraid if I used huge ones they wouldn’t. Then just top with the other slice of bread and very carefully grill her up like you would a grilled cheese.
I say carefully because they are hard to flip. The bread rips in half if you’re not carefully. If this happens don’t worry. Just grab a fork, a cold glass of milk and dig into that thing. Yep, straight out of the pan. Mmmmm!
It’s especially good when its freezing and the snow will not stop coming. We’re going on two plus feet today alone.
