In the spirit of two of its delicious ingredients, rum and marshmallows, here’s a mouth-watering recipe for oven-baked rum-soaked s’mores.
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 2 tablespoons rum
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate graham crackers, crumbled
- 1 cup chocolate chips or pieces
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 1/2 stick butter
1: Grease a pan and line with parchment paper, leaving excess along the edges; you’ll use these edges to remove the s’mores later.
2: In a medium saucepan, melt butter then add the flour and condensed milk. Stir over medium heat. Add two tablespoons of rum into the mixture, continuing while continuing to stir.
3: Continue stirring over medium heat, then add salt. Heat until mixture thickens. Set aside to cool.
4: In a large bowl, combine the crushed graham crackers and oats.
5: Once the melted mixture has cooled, spoon it into the bowl with the oats and graham crackers, then stir until well blended. Spoon mixture into the baking pan, then gently press the mixture flat and into the corners
6: Begin layering on the toppings, starting with the chocolate chips. Then add marshmallows, ground graham crackers and a layer of shredded coconut.
7: Bake at 176 degrees on the centre rack for 15 minutes. When it’s finished baking, set the oven to broil and brown the top a bit, if needed. While warm, remove from the baking pan by gently lifting up on the parchment paper. Cut and serve warm.
