Oven S'mores

I was skeptical at first but can now tell you from making a batch of these yesterday that they are PERFECT for an open house.  I AM somewhat of a purist when it comes to my S'mores with all my Girl Scout and Youth Group camping experience. Yes, they are infinitely better around a real camp fire.  But these are just as tasty and can be prepared a whole day in advance.

Preheat over to 400 degrees.

line cookie sheet with aluminum foild.  Place about six or eight graham crackers on the foil.  Top each one with a regular size marshmallow.  Heat in the oven for 5 minutes or until the marshmallow is lightly brown on top.

Add a half of a  bar of chocolate and top with the second graham cracker.  Mash lightly to set it all together..  If you're short on chocolate a quarter of a bar will work.  Put back into the oven to heat the chocolate a bit.  Watch carefully because you don't want a melted mess on your hands.  Just a little softening of the chocolate is best.

For some reason I can't explain it takes a really long time for the chocolate to set up once you take it out of the oven.  This is one time it actually is better a few hours later than eating it immediately.  Plan ahead. If you make them a day ahead you can even cut them into fourths for bite-sized pieces.
