Deep Fried S’mores

Deep Fried S'moresMy quest to deep fry every possible thing I can think of has brought me to my latest creation; deep fried s’mores. Why deep fried s’mores you ask? Excellent question! My main problem with regular s’mores is that it seems like every single time I take a bite of one of them the graham cracker falls apart and I end up with chocolate and/or marshmallow all over my fingers. My theory prior to making these was that the deep fryer would soften up the graham crackers a bit, which in turn would stop them from crumbling as I enjoyed my s’mores.

I started off with the same egg roll wrappers that I used when I made deep fried poutine. I then added graham crackers, Hershey’s chocolate and marshmallows before wrapping them up like delicious little presents and tossing them into my deep fryer. On a related note, did you know that they make flat marshmallows now just for s’mores? I had no idea until now, but I used them with these deep fried s’mores and they worked perfectly.

Also, have you ever noticed that anytime anything is deep frying, no matter what it is, the smell is almost always exactly the same? This was the first time for me where it actually smelled different, as my entire kitchen filled with the smell of freshly made s’mores. Do any candle companies make s’mores scented candles yet? Because if they do I want to buy a couple of them!

Alright, I feel like ‘m getting off track here. You probably want to know how these tasted right? One word… Delicious! As I suspected, the deep frier softened up the graham crackers, so instead of crumbling when I bit into them I was instead met with the perfect mix of cracker, melted Hershey’s chocolate and gooey marshmallow in each and every bite. The only real downfall to the outer deep fried shell of these was that it kind of threw off the graham cracker crunch to marshmallow to chocolate ratio, but that could easily be solved by simply adding a couple more marshmallows and a couple more pieces of chocolate to each one.

    Look awesome. Maybe you need to come up with a graham cracker based dough to wrap them in.

    As for running out of stuff to deep fry? Impossible! White Castle Burgers, pumpkin pie, bbq ribs…the posibilities are endless.

      I like the idea of a graham cracker based dough. I actually want to make graham cracker based hamburger rolls and them make a burger called the S’moregasbord Burger and top the burger with chocolate and marshmallows and then serve it on the graham cracker bun.

    Deep fried pie sounds awesome – kinda like the fried apple pies at mcd’s. Do you like japanese tempura? It might be a nice change of pace for you. Just buy a box of japanese tempura mix, follow the directions and make sure the water is ice cold and the batter is lumpy, and then deep fry everything you can put your hands on — tempura fried vegetables (especially green beans, zucchini, and eggplant) dipped in hot sauce is insanely good. Tempura is also an ideal coating for fish and shellfish.

      Deep fried pie WOULD be awesome! Yeah, I love tempura so I’ll have to get some and experiment with that.

    Based on the (near-enough) success of this experiment, McDonalds clearly needs to start serving deep-fried happy meals. They could call them ‘doubly happy meals’.

      That’s awesome. You sound like a really really cool grandma. I wish my grandma would have made deep fried s’mores with me when I was a kid!

    Looks delicious. Just a heads up…
    Hershey’s chocolate is neither free-trade nor a really good tasting product. I understand its old-school charm in the s’mores process, but there’s so many better milk chocolates out there just as acessible (and maybe a little pricier). Give them a try.

      I totally agree, it’s just sort of what I grew up on when making s’mores. Plus, when I’m making stuff like this I never really know how it’s going to turn out so I’d hate to spend a bunch of money on really good chocolate and then end up throwing it away or something if it doesn’t work out.

      Maybe I can get a chocolate sponsor to provide me with free awesome chocolate to use for stuff like this!
