Once you are about 10 minutes away from s’more time, cut a few pieces of bacon into thirds and cook them up however you like to cook bacon (I am a firm believer in cooking bacon in the oven) until it is just the way you like it.
Now, depending on how much of a bacon fanatic you are, the assembly goes as follows:
1. Graham cracker half
2. Crispy warm cooked bacon
3. Square of milk chocolate
4. Melty, gooey, straight off the toasting stick marshmallow
5. If you are a bacon fanatic, one more piece of bacon. If you have more self control than I do, please proceed to step 6.
6. Other graham cracker half.
Now you know the drill – hold the s’more in your hands for the excruciating minute or two it takes to let the chocolate get nice and soft and gooey, pressing it together oh so gently….then close your eyes, and take that first bite. Sweet, salty, chocolate, sticky, crunchy, perfect summer, and all of the sudden you are 6 years old again. With bacon.
Happy summer, my friends.
