My husband Greg has this thing for Smores. I mean he REALLY likes them. A few times a year he will come home from work with Smores fixings and start microwaving smores after dinner. For Valentines Day this year I got him ingredients for Smores because he really likes them THAT much!
Now that we are now thirty somethings. I thought I would come up with a more sophisticated version of Smores using dark chocolate instead of
junk Milk chocolate and substituting the graham cracker with a salted sweet potato crisp.
In order to make a nice Sweet Potato Crisp. I cut some thin slices of a peeled sweet potato. ( not too thin). I brushed them with olive oil and lightly salted them with sea salt. I put them in the oven at 350 degrees. for about 25 minutes. Every 7-8 minutes I opened up the oven and turned them. I wanted to make sure they were not going to stick to my baking sheet and I wanted a nice brown crisp on each side of the sweet potato.
While still in the oven. I placed a piece of dark chocolate and a marshmallow on 2 of the Sweet Potato crisps and let them bake for about 2 minutes longer.
Until the marshmallow gets all big and gooey.
Using my spatula, I carefully transported each Sweet Potato Smore to a place and let them cool for just a minute. Then I indulged.
I am not sure this would constitute as a ” Healthy” version of Smores. As I don’t think smores are meant to be healthy. However this is a more dynamic version of the smore!
