"The French fry should be the global symbol of peace. Like fried chicken, it is found, consumed, and loved all over the world… Salt them, season them, top them or dip them. Have them anyway you want." — Paul Abrahamian, co-owner of Sticky's Fingers Joint in NYC.
If you want to try something a little more daring than your usual salted fries dipped in ketchup, Sticky Fingers suggests their S’mores Fries!
Place the sugar, cocoa, red pepper flakes, and salt in a saucepan or small pot. Turn the heat on and then add the water and heavy cream. Bring the mixture to a boil while stirring constantly. When the mixture begins to boil, add the vanilla. Check the consistency by dipping a spoon into the mixture and dripping a few drops onto a room-temperature plate. When it reaches the desired consistency, turn the heat off and set the chocolate sauce aside.
Prepare the French fries by baking or frying them. Crispy, well-done fries are best for this recipe.
Top the fries with mini marshmallows, a drizzle of the chocolate sauce, a drizzle of marshmallow sauce, and a good handful of graham cracker crumbles, according to taste.
Salt the S’more fries and garnish them with a few sprigs of parsley.
