Gluten Free PB S’mores August 29, 2011Posted by Melonie Gallegos in : Dishing It , trackback
I was ecstatic to find a box of gluten free (dairy free) graham crackers on the store shelf. Not only because I haven’t had it in years, but I had a craving for s’mores after visiting the Hershey S’mores room at BlogHer. This magical room had every possible way to cook s’mores available from a BBQ, to a firepit to little burners that would never get you out of your Laz E Boy. I was a good girl and skipped out on having any but it was a treat to watch everyone else enjoy it. S’mores seem to bring about the communal nature in us. Shared cooking, lounging and conversation.
These pics of the Hershey’s S’mores room from Danelle on Home Ever After sum up the experience.
I enjoy s’mores but don’t always have access or energy to deal with a campfire so I have an alternative delicious snack I came up with. It takes 1 minute to make, it’s office friendly, kid friendly and filling. Did you know dark chocolate has health benefits? In moderation of course. This is a creative way to get your healthy 1 piece of dark chocolate in per day.

If you do decide to fire up some traditional s’mores you’re in luck, marshmallows are generally gluten and dairy free. A go-to brand is Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallows.
