S’mores for grown-ups

This recipe is so fun – it’s like a grown-up s’more. The apples have a very different taste after they are baked, but they are the perfect compliment to the chocolate and marshmallow.

  • 2 medium apples
  • 5 large marshmallows, 1 quartered, 4 halved crosswise
  • 1 ounce Mexican chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 2 ounces (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons water

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Halve each apple lengthwise. Scoop out seeds, forming a small crater in center of each half.

 Fill each crater with 1 marshmallow. Divide the chocolate evenly among halves. Cut 2 tablespoons butter into small pieces, and divide among apples, placing over chocolate.

 Place water and remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a baking dish. Place filled apples in dish. Bake until a knife inserted into apples meets no resistance, 20 to 30 minutes.

 Turn oven setting to broil. Top each apple half with 2 marshmallow halves. Broil until golden brown. Drizzle with juices.

*I like my marshmallows crispy, but if you don’t, I would watch them in the oven so you don’t burn them.
