If your life is anything like mine it’s a bit crazy…pretty much ALL OF THE TIME.
That means that I want to make holidays special but I don’t want to spend days of my life executing it.
For Valentine’s Day, you want to impress with a meal that says, “I love you, even though I also drive you crazy a whole lot.” But it’s also gotta be doable within the circus of life.
These s’mores in a jar are irresistibly adorable (not to mention so creamy and delicious) but also completely doable. Side note – I cannot resist anything in cute ‘lil a jar. Please say I’m not the only one.
It’s simply a graham cracker crust filled with a decadent and airy chocolate mousse and topped with marshmallow fluff, given a quick torch.
The mousse is rich and unbelievably light (thanks to all those whipped whites and fluffy cream!) and the marshmallow has that crisp outer shell with a hint of bonfire char and a spoonload of sweet stickiness. And the graham crackers just bring it all together.
It is such a magical combination that is completely nostalgic of every childhood fireplace and bonfire memory but with a special refined, grownup twist.
(You can alter the level of sweetness in the mousse by changing the chocolate to milk or bittersweet, depending on your taste.)
Sliding your spoon right down through the layers and into the mousse is a religious experience – like butta.
Those special someone(s) in your life will definitely be impressed and feel like you love them, even though they are a bit crazier because of you.
But what’s love if you aren’t making someone a little cuckoo? 😉
