I’m at Craftcation in Ventura, CA this week for four days of crafting and business classes and meeting people like me! Seriously, it’s awesome. This is my first time, and it’s been the greatest experience so far (and I’ve only gotten through day one). I’ve met a couple of my favorite bloggers and it’s like meeting a celebrity…is that weird? Successful bloggers are my celebrities. I can’t wait to see what the next few days have in store. So far, I made screen printed coasters (not my greatest success) in a great class by Vitamini, a resin coated pendant, and an adorable fox appliqué piece. One day down – three more to go!
Moving on to the sweets…I’m talking toffee again this week. After making cracker toffee a little while back, Andrew told me it reminded him of s’mores. Then, it dawned on me – s’mores toffee! Made with the same base as my cracker toffee recipe, it has marshmallows added in between with crushed graham cracker on top. Best of all, it’s super easy to make and will totally remind you of your nights around a campfire.
Ingredients (makes 15-18 pieces):
- 1 1/2 cups of milk chocolate chips
- 2 cups large marshmallows
- 10-12 graham crackers + extra for topping
- 6 tbs butter (1 stick)
- 1/2 can of condensed milk
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
First, line a square or jelly roll pan with foil. Melt 1 tbs of the butter in the pan while the oven preheats to 425 degrees. Once melted, spread the the butter over the pan and line it with graham crackers. In a small saucepan on the stove, melt the remaining 5 tbs of butter on low heat. Stir in the brown sugar with a whisk, and bring to a boil on medium heat. Then remove from heat and stir in the condensed milk. Pour the toffee mixture over the graham crackers and spread with a spatula. Space out the large marshmallows over the top of the toffee, about 2 inches apart, and bake on 425 degrees for 10 minutes.
The marshmallows should be golden brown and doubled in size at this point. Remove the toffee from the oven and immediately pour chocolate chips over the marshmallows. Let them sit for a minute to melt slightly before spreading the chocolate over the marshmallows. It will be really sticky and may not look pretty, but no worries! It still tastes the same.
Place about five graham crackers in a ziplock bag and and crumple them into pieces. Sprinkle over the melted chocolate and let sit for at least an hour to harden completely. Remove the foil from the pan and use a sharp knife to cut it into pieces. You can also break it with your hands, but it’s so sticky that a knife tends to be easier.
Now pretend you’re sitting in front of a smoking campfire with your s’mores toffee. Maybe with some hot chocolate? Mmm…enjoy!
