Kids and adults alike love freshly roasted marshmallows stuffed between two graham crackers and layered with melted chocolate, so this holiday season, give the gift of homemade s'mores. While making your own chocolate might be too much (considering cocoa is a little hard to come by), the other ingredients are surprisingly simple.
Since they consist of graham flour, which is a whole wheat flour, the graham crackers taste more healthy than their store-bought counterparts. But, once topped with cinnamon and sugar, they're very satisfying. The homemade marshmallows, with their delicate texture, blow away the bagged version. Assemble the s'mores and package them in a decorative box or simple cellophane bag. Ready to give these gooey and sweet treats away? Read more.
