S'mores On the Range

     ... the range top oven that is!  It's Recipe Tuesday and today's recipe was born out of a need to use up 24 Hershey bars (yes, 24), 2 bags of marshmallows and a box graham crackers.  Ok, we really didn't need to "use" any of these ingredients up, but they just didn't stand a chance in our cabinets for long and I wasn't going camping anytime soon.
     After eating several chocolate bars and a few marshmallows my genius husband said: "hey, let's make S'mores".  Only problem was we didn't have a campfire...  That's where the oven comes in.  We figured out that if you carefully assemble the graham cracker, chocolate square and marshmallow, preheat the oven to 350 and bake for 5 minutes they came out PERFECTLY!  I do prefer my marshmallows toasted to a crisp but these will definitely do in a pinch.  The chocolate melts and even though it doesn't look like it, the marshmallow is gooey in the middle.  Genius!  I married a genius! 

*Note: You WILL need to keep an eye on your S'mores in the oven, the chocolate may melt faster than expected.
