Jason has been asking me to blog about this for a long time now. Actually, he's been asking when I will blog about it since it happened, which was back in April. I had misplaced my SD Card so I didn't know where the photos were for a while (not so gentle shoulder-shaking-in-your-face reminder: upload your photos to your computer for crying out loud! Do not store them on your card... that's ridiculous!) So, the photos were misplaced as well and now I'm finally getting these up on de blog.
Without further ado (or semi-irrelevant explanations) I give you, my readers, GIANT S'MORES!
First, you will need to go to the grocery store. Upon seeing the giant marshmallows you must simultaneously look at each other in a way that says "I'm pretty sure we just discovered gold! Or better yet, GIANT freaking marshmallows!!!" Buy them.
Once you are home, put them in a mug with some cocoa to compare how big the marshmallow is compared to your mug. Look at that thing! It's taking up the whole mug! There's like 2 tablespoons of hot chocolate in there! There's hardly room for the spoon! This is awesome!!!
Next, gather your supplies. You will need:
- Graham Crackers (if you can find giant graham crackers, use those. We could not, so we just used regular graham crackers but we didn't break them in half, so instead they are double long. That's ok.)
- Giant Marshamallows (we also got regular sized marshmallows to, once again, show you how GIANT these things are.)
- Giant Chocolate Bar (once again, we have a little one too, just to be sure everything is proportionate.)
Assemble your s'mores. Graham crackers first, then chocolate, then marshmallows, then more graham cracker. Take photos to show just how giant these marshmallows are (did I mention they are giant? I'm wasn't sure you got that.)
Next, stick those guys in the microwave and watch the marshmallows get all poofy. Smoosh (yes, it's a word, look it up. Ok, don't, but you can trust me, can't you? Maybe not. Just stop doubting me and SMOOSH!) and enjoy!!! Be careful, they are sticky!
Note from the microwave owner: I am a Vermont girl, born and raised. I would OBVIOUSLY prefer and completely advocate for you to go out and build yourself a fire and roast those bad boys up. That is the ideal way to enjoy a marshmallow. However, this was (remember?) back in April, and April in Minnesota is c.o.l.d. Also, we didn't own property at the time and I don't think our apartment management would appreciate us starting a fire to roast marshmallows over, even if they are GIANT and it was for blogging purposes.
Another note from me: I have wanted to type 'marshamallows' instead of marshmallows the whole time I've been writing this post. I think 'marsh-a-mallows' is a much better name anyway and if you want to go ahead and start saying it that way instead, I would love you forever. It's just more fun, right?
Wait? Another note? Ok, here, one more: Why in the world is it spelled 'marshmAllows' and not 'marshmEllows?' The English language is so weird sometimes.
