Lunch Box Chronicles: Day Sixty (S'Mores Spelt Right)
Spencer and Olivia had been asking for Spelt Right S'Mores for s'me time. Well, s'mores are made with graham crackers (quite a surprising history behind graham crackers - go ahead research it. I'm too bashful to fill in the details here), chocolate and marshmallow. The problem is that our household has some significant food sensitivities (no common wheat here....I actually did make graham crackers with whole spelt once and they came out great). Also, often the campfire marshmallows are usually loaded with artificial junk, so here we go improvising again.
Ingredients: One Spelt Right Pizza Dough (fully thawed and risen), one cup of Ghiradelli chocolate chips (we mixed milk and semi sweet chocolate bits) melted, and Natural Tiny Trapeze Marshmello Creme.
Instructions: Melt the chocolate on the stove top on low heat. You can add a smidge of milk to the chocolate to loosen it a bit, but only a smidge. Set aside. Separate dough into 6 even balls (we used only two balls and used the remaining dough for some quick pizza). Roll out dough until very thin, but not transparent. Spread chocolate and marshmallow on the dough. Roll (See photo). Place on baking dish, bake at 350 until browned.
These would have been good IF all of the goo inside did not ooze out. You need to be sure to seal the edges and ends very carefully. Proceed with caution. Despite the mess, the kids enjoyed them. I, on the other had, was a little grossed out....could it have been the little sticky fingers making the them or the oozing marshmallow and chocolate? PS: We tried to seal the gaps with Cereal Os.
