Ice cream + Hot car = No bueno
The time-consuming errands meant that I would most likely have to bring something storebought, which always makes me a little sad. Homemade is so much better, but we just didn't have any time for baking beforehand.
Since I had to rethink our dessert, I checked my e-mail and found out that August 10th is National S'mores Day! I wasn't sure if we would have access to a firepit, so traditional s'mores were out. Off the top of my head, I grabbed a few items, ran home, and made a quick, easy, budget-friendly, and crowd-pleasing dessert. I'm happy to share my S'mores Mini Donuts with you!
S'Mores Mini Donuts
From Diane of Vintage Zest
Chocolate covered mini donuts (2 packs or 30 donuts)
Mini marshmallows (1 package is more than enough)
Graham crackers (4 squares)
Plastic sandwich bag
Heat-safe plate or cookie sheet
1. Crush the graham crackers into crumbs in a plastic sandwich bag.
2. Arrange the donuts on your heat-safe plate and pile the marshmallows on top.
3. For each mini donut, toast the marshmallows, constantly moving the flame and not concentrating on one spot for too long.
4. As soon as the marshmallows are toasted to your liking, sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs over the donut, which will have melted slightly. The more melty the donut, the more crumbs will stick!
5. Repeat until the entire plate is finished!
Seriously, aren't they adorable? Just a couple of minutes of set-up and I spent about $6 on both platters, with a ton of graham crackers leftover. Perfect for a party because they look so festive, and they're delish to boot! Also, they're a step-up from storebought, but without the hassle of baking at home.
Next time, I definitely want to make s'mores brownies cups! These mini-desserts are just too cute. :)
By the way, for those of you who follow me on Instagram, you would have seen my prepping with the brulee torch, which was my first time using it. I think I'm addicted, and I'm looking for a good creme brulee recipe now!
Does anyone have any good recipes for my new love in the kitchen (AKA the kitchen torch)?
