Pineapple, marshmallow creme, and angel food cake, now what about that says S’mores?
For National Roasted Marshmallow day (apparently that’s a thing, Aug 30th) the US Forest Service released some “suggestions” on how we should be eating S’Mores.
Their first heresy…get rid of the chocolate.
Grill thin slices of pineapple and substitute chocolate for the sweet, warm fruit. You will still get a tasty treat but by substituting with fruit, it is healthier – as long as you watch the amount of marshmallows used.
I don’t mind pineapple or fruit in general…but that sounds disgusting. Marshmallow and warm pineapple on a graham cracker? Ugh. Oh, and apparently don’t use too much marshmallow because BIG sister doesn’t think that’s appropriate.
Another way to limit the amount of marshmallows used is to substitute them with marshmallow crème, a spreadable version of marshmallows that helps you more easily regulate portion.
But that’s not even the end of the madness. The US Forest Service goes on to attack the graham cracker itself.
If you want to cut down even more on calories, try using slices of angel food cake instead of graham crackers.
