Pretty in Pink S’mores ~ Have A Great Labor Day Weekend!


It’s Labor Day Weekend. Last weekend for summer fun at the beach or pool!

There will be lots of burgers on the grill…

Keep the coals hot…because dessert can be made on the grill too.

How about S’mores?
The classic S’mores is made with graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows.
Here's a new twist to the classic...I call it...

PRETTY IN PINK S'MORES

These S’mores are made with shortbread cookies, white chocolate, sea salt and strawberry marshmallows.



S’mores on the beach…

Pretty in Pink S’mores
Recipe by Carmen Ortiz of Baking is my Zen

Serving: 1

Ingredients:
2 Shortbread cookies (Lorna Doone)
Pinch sea salt
1 square (1/2 oz) Ghirardelli White Chocolate
1 Strawberry Marshmallow (Kraft brand)

Items needed:
BBQ grill
Aluminum foil
Skewer
Fork
Plate

DIRECTIONS:
Have your ingredients ready.


Start your grill and wait until hot and ready to use.

Place a square piece of aluminum foil on grill. (12 in. x 12 in. approx)

Lay one cookie on aluminum foil.

Place white chocolate on top of the cookie.


Sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt.


Melt Chocolate slightly.

Meanwhile, pierce one strawberry marshmallow onto a skewer.

Rotate the marshmallow an inch or so above the grill grate.

Careful not to let the marshmallow touch the grate.



When the marshmallow is grilled, using a fork,

slide marshmallow onto the white chocolate.

Top with another shortbread cookie.

Remove aluminum foil from grill.


Place S’more on a plate.

Squeeze the two cookies together slightly.

The marshmallow and white chocolate will ooze out.

That’s ok. That’s the markings of a great S’more!

Have napkins ready….you’ll need lots of them!


Enjoy making your Pretty in Pink S’mores!

Have a fun and safe Labor Day Weekend!

Peace in Baking,
