Today I am going to tell you how I made this banana bread into one giant S’more. Grilled Tex-Mex Chicken and Qunioa Wraps-3

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.

Grilled Banana Bread Peanut Butter S'More with Vanilla Marshmallows-3

Let me just say that banana bread and especially this Whole Wheat Graham Cracker Banana Bread makes the best base for a S’more.

It’s bananas.

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.

Homemade Marshmallows!!

They’re what puts this already amazing S’more completely over the top. Cause I really need one more over the top dessert recipe on this blog. Yeah, I am talking these, these and these.

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!

Ingredients

  • 4 slices thick [graham cracker banana bread|https://www.halfbakedharvest.com/whole-wheat-graham-cracker-banana-bread/] or other bread
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 4 ounce square of dark chocolate 1/2
  • 4 vanilla marshmallows
  • butter for the pan

vanilla marshmallows

Instructions

  • To make the S'mores. Cut 4 thick slices of banana bread (you want them thick because the bread will break if it is too thin), spread a tablespoon of peanut butter on the inside of 2 of the slices of banana bread. Place two squares of chocolate on top, then place a marshmallow on top of that. Place the other slice of banana bread on top.
  • Heat a small pan over medium heat. Add a little butter and place the S'more in the pan. Cook for about 3-4 minutes and then very carefully flip the S'more (be as careful as you can, the bread is very moist so it rips very easily) and cook another 3-4 minutes or until most of the chocolate has melted and the marshmallows are getting gooey. Very, very carefully remove from the pan and allow the S'more to sit for a minute or two. If the S'more tears, dont freak. It is still insanely delicious! The S'mores will be gooey, hot and messy. This is one you're gonna want to eat with a fork!
  • To make the vanilla marshmallows place the gelatin in a small bowl and stir in the 8 tablespoons of cold water. Set aside. Spray an 8x8 pan with nonstick spray, then sprinkle some powdered sugar in the pan and shake well, dispersing it all over the pan, covering the entire thing.
  • In a small saucepan, combine the remaining cold water and sugar. Heat oven medium heat, stirring constantly until the sugar is dissolved and bubbly, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in the gelatin mixture, stirring, and bring it to a boil. Once boiling, immediately remove from heat. Add to the bowl of an electric mixer attached with a whisk. Let sit and slightly cool. Add in vanilla extract, and salt. Beat on medium-high speed for 10-15 minutes, until white and glossy and shiny and thick. Spread in the 8x8 pan and top with powdered sugar if desired. Let sit for about 4 hours, or overnight.
  • To cut, I run a knife along the outside of the pan, then turn it over and shake the marshmallow cube out onto a greased suface (I did not do this and half the marshmallows stuck to my counter. Using a knife sprayed with nonstick spray, slice the marshmallows into your desired size.

It’s especially good when its freezing and the snow will not stop coming. We’re going on two plus feet today alone.
