Tonight we had some friends come over (also vacationing here) for dinner. We grilled burgers and hot dogs and tried to use up some of our extra foods from the week since it is the last night.
But I wanted some sort of dessert.
I was in the mood for smores or something chocolatey. It is really hard to cook in someone else's kitchen though. So I needed simple.
I went to my first choice (always). Pinterest.
Good food but nothing as simple as I wanted.
It just so happens I was reading a magazine at that time that had a recipe for Grilled Smores.
And it was simple.
We just needed to pick up a few basic ingredients.
I will say that they taste nothing like smores (or I didn't think so). But that didn't stop me from eating one. And wanting to eat more.
frozen pound cake (I used the Sara Lee family size...actually 2 since we had so many people), thawed and cut into slices
a bag of mini marshmallows
a bag of mini chocolate chips (though really the little Hershey's bars would work too)
Place some mini marshmallows and chocolate chips on the sliced pound cake. Top with another slice.
Grill, flipping after the chocolate and marshmallows start to melt and the pound cake gets "toasty".
Like I said, simple. And not a pure smores by any mean.
But a sweet treat just the same.
