Banana Split S'mores

S’mores are a cottage essential.  You can’t have a bonfire at our place without a call for S’mores.  Last week I received a box from Smucker’s filled with their three new Simple Blends flavours to try; Summer Fruit, Wildberry and Fieldberry.  These inspired a new cottage recipe; we called it Banana Split Smucker’s S’mores. 



The kids were excited to help.  They gathered the wood for the bonfire, helped to slice the bananas and gather our ingredients.  Of course their favourite part of getting ready was taste testing the Smucker’s Simple Blends to decide which one we would use for our recipe.  We chose the Summer Fruit blend but any of them would have worked well.


As the fire burned my husband and kids toasted our marshmallows.  I placed a piece of chocolate on half of the graham crackers and left them by the side of the fire to melt.  I then spread a layer of Smucker’s Simple Blends Summer Fruit on the other graham crackers, topped them with a slice or two of banana and waited for the gooey marshmallows from the kids.  We slid the toasted marshmallows off the sticks and onto the waiting graham crackers.  We then topped them off with one of the chocolaty graham crackers and squeezed them together to blend the flavours. 



The kids dug in and it was a HUGE success.  The kids loved this new take on a classic recipe.  I personally find S’mores too rich but the Smucker’s Simple Blends added a fresh sweetness that I really enjoyed. 


PS - this is my daughter's "I'm gonna make you jealous of what I'm eating" look.
