It's once again time for us to start preparing for the annual state fair! My daughter will be entering a couple of baked items in the food competition again this year. She's been competing in the food division (the largest food competition anywhere in the country!) for a few years now and has amassed quite a number of ribbons.
(In case anyone is wondering, NO, Lily will not be entering the Household Pet Cat Show this year. Our cat show days are OVER!)
Anyway...In looking at photos from last year's competition, I realized I failed to post the recipe for one of my daughter's entries, Krispy S'mores. This recipe is definitely NOT on anyone's fitness plan ;-) but it is certainly tasty! Daughter received a third place ribbon in the s'mores category for this recipe last year.
10 honey graham crackers
8 squares semi-sweet baking chocolate
6 Tbsp. butter or margarine
10 oz. miniature marshmallows
13 oz. Cocoa Pebbles cereal
12 large marshmallows, halved
Line a 13x9in pan with foil; grease the bottom and sides. Place grahams in single layer on bottom, cutting grahams to completely fill pan. Coarsely crush remaining grahams; set aside. Microwave chocolate and 2 Tbsp. butter in microwavable bowl on HIGH 2 minutes; stir until chocolate is melted. Spread ½ of the chocolate in thin layer over grahams. Microwave remaining 4 Tbsp. butter in 4-quart microwavable bowl on HIGH 45 seconds or until melted. Add miniature marshmallows; toss to coat. Microwave 1-1/2 minutes until marshmallows are completely melted, stirring after 45 seconds. Add cereal; mix well. Press gently over chocolate-coated grahams to form even layer. Top with marshmallow halves, cut-side down, and crushed grahams. Drizzle with remaining chocolate. Cool; cut into squares.
Makes 2 dozen.
