I was deciding what to bring to a small get together at my sister's house. It was our friend's birthday and my sister was already planning to bake her famous carrot cake so I really didn't need to bring another cake. But there's nothing wrong with a different kind of dessert, right? I was already going to bring a salad, so, naturally, it should be balanced out with a second dessert.
And when James saw this Baked Smores recipe, that was it. He declared that I would make Baked Smores.
So I did. And I didn't just make it in a regular 9 x 11 cake pan, I made it in a chafing dish! It was huge! Those are four giant Hershey's bars down there - and then some!
Covered with fluff.
Mine didn't look as gorgeous and melty as the The Apron Gal's. But I bet it tasted the same. These were definitely better when served warm. I bet it would be best straight out of the oven. Mine came out of the oven before we even started dinner.
As yummy as it was, I don't think I'll make this recipe again, at least not in this form. Don't get me wrong, it was very good; we all really enjoyed it, but I think I had slightly different expectations. If you decide to use this original recipe, consider using regular size Hershey bars, the giant ones seemed like they were too thick for the rest of the Smore.
I've already started working out other ways to bake smores. I'll let you know when I figure out what I'm looking for.
