Am I on? Are we on!?!? Good!!
If you stopped by yesterday you probably noticed that accessing my site was impossible. Boooo! My hosting company was dealing with some issues… and my poor fish tacos didn’t get all the recipe love that they deserve!
Hopefully the issue is now fixed and we can move on…
S’mores Tart. Or Pie? Or Cake? I dunno what to call it. But, let’s be honest… Who cares what it’s called when the word “s’mores” is in the title! For reals.
This decadent dessert happened because I needed to use up the leftover frosting from another decadent dessert – my French Macarons with Marshmallow Frosting. Love those little nibbles!
Thus, I was faced with a tub of marshmallow frosting that needed to be used asap. I also had 3 XL Hershey Chocolate Bars and a family-pack of Honey Graham Crackers… what would you have made!?
I hope your answer is S’mores Tart! What else is there?! 😉
I honestly do not know how I didn’t eat it all. The only thing that stopped me from doing it was the nice weather outside. I can’t hide the jiggle under a coat no mo’! Damn!!
I made my husband eat most of it. He won’t gain a pound. Again, damn!
If you love a traditional s’mores, then you will be obsessed with this tart. OBSESSED! Truly. It is so, so good, and you don’t even have to make the frosting if you don’t want to. Just top it with marshmallows and put it in the broiler for 3 minutes.
The only thing that irks me about this recipe is the waiting time. You have to let it set, and that can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours, depending on the humidity. Good luck trying not to cut into it before it’s time.
P.S. Just a reminder – You still have time to enter my KitchenAid Stand Mixer Giveaway!
