Ingredients

  • One  12-ounce bag milk chocolate chips
  • 2  Tablespoons  coconut oil
  • graham crackers
  • 1  Cup  marshmallow fluff
  • small scoops vanilla ice cream

Directions

In a glass bowl over a double-boiler, melt the chocolate chips. Add the coconut oil and remove from the heat. Set aside to cool for a minute or 2.

To assemble the sandwiches, break the graham crackers in half to make squares. Spread the marshmallow fluff on the sides of 2 graham cracker halves. Add the small scoop of ice cream on top of 1 side of cracker, over the marshmallow fluff. Top with the other half of graham cracker, marshmallow side down, to make a sandwich. Smash down a little to make the sandwich a little more compact. Use a butter knife to cut away any excess ice cream from the sides of sandwich. Place the sandwich in the chocolate mixture, carefully, as the chocolate may still be hot, and coat the top and sides using a spoon. Pull out of chocolate and place on parchment paper-lined baking sheet in the freezer immediately to harden. Repeat the process with the other sandwiches, alternating the baking sheet in and out of the freezer. Keep the sandwiches in the freezer until you’re ready to serve.

S'more Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

S'more Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
