All of my attempts at making S'mores at home (read: not over an authentic campfire) have resulted in exploding marshmallows and a gnarly kitchen-cleaning session. It's not pretty. As a direct consequence, I now limit my S'mores consumption to less messy incarnations, like this recipe for S'mores Fudge. The three basic S'mores components--chocolate, graham crackers, and marshmallows--are still present, but this time they are a safely contained in a creamy fudge base, swirled into small chocolate squares that have bits of crunchy grahams and chewy marshmallows in every bite.
