Chocolate S’mores

The idea for all-chocolate s’mores came to me when Emma and I were planning her Chocolate Slumber Party—we decided it would be a fun dessert and we used chocolate marshmallows and chocolate grahams along with hot fudge sauce. If you like chocolate, these are the s’mores for you.

We also decided that, instead of traditional s’mores, we’d use the butter warmers I bought for our Cheese Fondue Tastings…and, in fact, they turn the s’mores into a double-dipping bonanza. All you need to do is nuke the chocolate marshmallows (available at gourmet and specialty food stores…or you can add cocoa powder to regular marshmallows) and pour into one of the warmers. We make hot fudge (I posted the recipe in Double Chocolate-Oreo Ice Cream Pie with Hot Fudge Sauce) and pour into the other. Not too tough.

The kids loved this dessert, and so did Bruce and I—we were available for tastes during the Emma’s party.  So, one night when we were having several of our friends to dinner and Emma suggested making the Chocolate S’mores, I thought: Why not? Why not, indeed. The grownups devoured every morsel and used spoons to get every last drip of chocolate marshmallow and hot fudge out of the butter warmers and onto the chocolate grahams. Even the women who protested they “just couldn’t” (more common than not in LA!) indulged, seemingly without remorse.
