“turning the s’more snack into creamy and chocolaty breakfast”
Enjoying the warmth of a campfire with friends and family sounds so idyllic. Unfortunately, for me, the opportunity for such a gathering can happen once a year, which means having s’mores in the traditional way would be a rare occasion. However, having s’mores as an afternoon snack, or maybe even turning them into a delicious breakfast is an entirely different matter. I mean, when something is so yummy, you can’t help yourself but find a way to enjoy it more frequently, right?
S’more waffles made with greek yogurt is my sweet discovery. It’s a quick and easy recipe that allows me to have that unique s’more taste, but with a much richer and more pastry-like flavor.
All you need to make this recipe is a waffle iron, a saucepan, a mixing bowl, and all the ingredients listed below. So, if you’re in the mood for making waffles this weekend, you won’t have to invest more than 30 minutes in the kitchen.
Turn your waffle iron on and let it heat while you prepare the waffle mixture. Simply combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl, and then gradually stir in the eggs, greek yogurt, vanilla extract, milk, and butter. Adding the ingredients one by one, while mixing, will be a lot easier for you than of adding them all at once. If you have, you can also use a blender, which will make this whole process a one minute job.
When everything is well combined, pour ⅓ cup of batter into the waffle iron (for a 7-inch round iron) and cook for around five minutes. Usually, waffle irons have an indicator when the waffle is done, so there’s no need to watch the clock.
Once the waffles and done, divide them in three or four serving plates and set them aside.
To prepare the marshmallow creme, take a saucepan and place it over medium to high heat. Once it’s heated, pour the marshmallows and constantly stir until they melt. It will take around five minutes, but you can add two to three tablespoons to aid the melting process. The marshmallows won’t melt completely, and you should expect some lumps, but the mixture will be satisfyingly creamy and gooey. Just don’t forget to stir all the time, or you’ll burn the marshmallows.
After five minutes, remove from heat and fold in the chocolate chips. Since the marshmallow creme will be hot, the chocolate chips will melt a little bit.
Finally, pour the creme over each waffle in the serving plate and decorate with fresh raspberries if you like. Eat them while they’re still warm to fully enjoy that gooey marshmallowy taste.
