I hope today is a lovely day for you regardless of whether you are ‘with someone’ or not! Whichever field you fall in, makes no matter with these s’mores. They’ll love you either way.

I really did make these for my sweetheart of a husband, but there is a litttle bit of me that feels selfish because… well, I just love s’mores so much it’s kind of a gift for both of us. Really, between s’mores and jelly bellies the past two days,  I think I may need an intervention. Baby VS, come take these sweets away from your momma!! But seriously… you can come anytime.

I’m totally in love with how these little treats look! It’s like the cute wife of the big, boxy, brown normal s’more. She’s all chic with Nutella instead of milk chocolate and she’s got that womanly heart-shape of a bod. Mr. Normal S’more didn’t stand a chance! They fell in love and got married. On Valentine’s Day. It’s a true love story of the s’more.

Oh yum. Side note: Excuse the blue band-aid there… totally chopped my thumb the other day when I was making enough chili to feed 30 people with my mom. Colored band-aids have been proven to help owwies heal faster, that’s why I wear them. 🙂

These don’t take long to make at all, in fact it could be a fun little project for little ones to cut out the heart shapes with you! Otherwise, they’re a totally sweet little gift to bring a friend to remind them how much you love them!

Everyone deserves a red velvet nutella s’more.

Red Velvet Nutella S’mores

Adapted from: Something Swanky

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla
  • 7 tablespoons butter, chilled and cut into cubes
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 5 tablespoons buttermilk (or 5 TBSP milk mixed with vinegar or lemon juice)
  • 1 tsp red food coloring
  • Nutella for spreading
  • Marshmallows for roasting (approximately 12)

Instructions

    1. Mix together the dry ingredients in a stand mixer bowl.
    2. Mix in the butter cubes, until crumbly.
    3. Mix together the honey, buttermilk, and red food coloring. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until a dough forms.
    4. Roll the dough out onto a well floured surface until it’s about 1/8″ thick. Try to keep the thickness of the dough consistent throughout.
    5. Cut into squares or use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes. Bake at 350 on a lined cookie sheet for 6-8 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack until hardened (like a normal graham cracker). *** I had to leave mine in for about 10 minutes to get them not so ‘cookie-like’. I also popped them back in the oven at 170 degrees for 30 minutes to crisp them up- they’re definitely more graham cracker-like the next day!
For the S’mores:
  1. Spread Nutella on one cracker and proceed to roast a marshmallow and assemble S’more like normal.
