S'mores - indoor versions *

I'm just putting this one down just in case I ever get, say, brain damage. I think most North Americans should know this one, I'm not quite certain of the rest of the world. Also, I took a picture of the one remaining s'more I had before I devoured it.

Wooden or metal skewers (preferrably ones safe to hold)
2 marshmallows
3/4 bar of Hershey's Chocolate
2 graham crackers (plain, or honey, or chocolate)

Personally, I think S'mores taste best with marshmallows roasted over an open flame. For people without access to a barbecue or gas range, there are two options.

S'mores - over the stove

Set one of the small burners on high. The burner should be clean, you don't want your s'more tasting like, say, burnt macaroni
Skewer both marshmallows, and lay the chocolate on one of the graham crackers.
Carefully roast the marshmallows over the burner, rotating them to making sure that all sides are uniformly dark brown (going for black will probably drop the marshmallows onto your stove - not a good thing).
Quickly place skewered marshmallows on the chocolate, then sandwich it with the other graham cracker, and carefully pull the skewer out as cleanly as possible.
If you burn yourself, or the burn the house down, you're doing it wrong.
Eat and enjoy.




S'mores - in the microwave oven

This one doesn't taste as delicious, but it's still good - especially if you do not have a stove.
Place graham cracker on microwaveable plate (or use a paper towel), and carefully place the two marshmallows on the middle of that, lengthwise.
Place in microwave oven, and microwave on high for 15-20 seconds, depending on your oven.
Quickly remove from oven, place the chocolate on top of the marshmallows, then sandwich it with the other graham cracker.
Eat and enjoy. Use skewer to pick teeth while waiting for the next s'more to cook.


Peep Jousting! - microwave only

2 Easter Peeps (the chick-shaped ones, preferrably of different colours)
2 wooden toothpicks or short skewers
1 square paper towel

Set paper towel in microwave oven.
Carefully place toothpick into the right front of each Peep, facing the pointy end forward.
Set peeps about 3-4" (I forget) apart in the oven, facing each other.
Place bets on your favourite Peep, if this is legal in your locale.
Microwave for 60 seconds, cutting the oven short once one Peep has skewered the other, or the Peeps are threatening to fill the oven without scoring a win.
Exchange money (again, if this is legal) and throw Peeps away.
I am not responsible for you getting sick from actually eating microwaved Peeps, or any microwave malfunction you might get from trying this.
