What Cracker Do You Use To Make Smores?

Recommended Posts

We have an upcoming, annual camping trip with several other families. Smores are ALWAYS involved. Does anyone have a grahm cracker recomendation? Or a cracker that could be substituted instead?

We make "cowboy s'mores". Instead of using graham crackers we make gluten-free chocolate chip cookies (really easy) with LOTS of chocolate chips. Then we use them instead of crackers and chocolate. EVERYONE loves these!

We did the cookie thing as well-it was really yummy, but a little too thick for me. I made Pamela's Namaste pancakes for breakfast one morning camping and had leftovers and used those. They were awesome! I just rolled the choc and marshmellow up and they were less messy, too!

I like to use lundenburg rice cakes. I make s'mores in the toaster oven all the time. Put down the rice cake, top with hersheys chocolate and a few mini marshmellows. Bake for 5-7 min or until melty. It's SOOOOOOOO yummy!!

Enjoy!

We use Health Valley rice bran crackers. They are a decent substitute for graham crackers, and easy to find in the store.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I was thinking the next time I make choc chip cookies, I'd try to make a few thin ones without choc chips and a few thin ones with choc chips - to use in a s'mores trial. Then of course some regular ones to just be eaten on the spot. I've already got those glutino (ritz-like) crackers. I hadn't really thought about those 'cause I would assume they would be too salty - like a Ritz. My daughter is the Celiac so those crackers are hers and it has been awhile since I had one but I had one today and I think they would be alright.

Then maybe I'll set up a little taste test at home before we hit the trail. (Yes, I have been know to roast marshmallows over an electric stove :rolleyes: My kids haven't caught me yet - I wouldn't want to set a bad example :P )

Jessica - you're home version sounds a little safer than mine - maybe I should switch over. :)

Terri - I've been trying to get my daughter to use pancakes for other things, such as a hot dog bun, and she keeps saying no. I think she thinks that it will taste like a hot dog with syrup on it :P I told her that next time I make pancakes, I want her to take a bite before she puts any syrup on it so that she knows what it actually tastes like. I've got high hopes that I can use pancakes for many other things . . . B)

Jillian - I would have to mail-order those and unfortunately, I am a cheapskate :rolleyes: Perhaps I'll try them sometime when I've got several things to order and I can justify the shipping charges.

Gina - We've got those in our pantry, too. That was the original cracker I bought but my daughter didn't like them (by themselves), but chocolate and gooey marshmallow may be able to change her mind. I'll add them to the trial :D

hm, yeah, been pondering this myself. i bet a regular cookie would do the trick. i think i'm gonna bring a couple types w/ me...w/ and w/out chocolate chips to try out. also, if your daughter's freaked out by "pancakes", then make up some extra batter, and pour them out into hot dog bun shapes (long, narrow), so they don't look like pancakes. also, i made pigs in blankets before. that would be a good idea as well i think. i just used some roll dough i was using to make breadsticks, and kinda draped it around the hot dogs. it was sticky, so i just improvised, but it worked well. and i laid some cheese on top. yum!

We use Josef's gluten-free Graham Crakers. They are very good. We can buy them at our Whole Foods Market but we have also gotten them on line. But even better yet, we have made home made graham crackers from a recipe in The Incredible Edible Gluten Free Food For Kids book. They came out great for both smores and everyday snacking. Also very good with peanut butter. If you would like the recipe let me know and I will dig it up.

Happy camping!

I bought some glutenfree Graham Crackers in Dillsburg, PA, at the "Gluten Free Source" the other day. They were fantastic. Unfortunately I can't remember the brand. Maybe one of the other celiacs on here from the Harrisburg area know what I'm talking about.

I use the MiDel arrowroot animal crackers, they're really good... I think they'd be good as a sub for graham crackers in a pie crust too.

We did discover the joy of inserting a hershey kiss into a hot marshmellow and just eating it that way too. The chocolate gets really gooey inside... oh, yum :rolleyes:

I also use Mi-Del arrowroot cookies, though make sure you have two of the same animal to make sure they line up properly. :) I just did this the other night using some marshmallows heated up in the microwave (hey, I was bored!).

On a related note: Since I'm still in the process of outgrowing a childhood chocolate allergy and don't always do well with it, I've also found that you can use nut butter -- I use sunflower seed due to a peanut allergy -- instead and make little fluffernutter-style s'mores that are really, really good. The different textures of the marshmallows and the sunflower seed butter makes a really neat combination that's fun to eat.

nature's path gluten free vanilla crackers - though not the ordinary size - work quite well, and I like the texture. :)

Momma Goose,

Try putting a marshmallow (for s'mores use only really) in the microwave for about 11 seconds. You have to stay close and watch it. As soon as it starts to get big, you pop open the door and roll it between the cracker/cookie and chocolate pieces (sort of clam shell pick it up action). And voila! An indoor s'more. I used to do the roasting on an open stove thing too. This is much safer. :D And much faster! I used to eat s'mores quite regularly pre-Celiac (our house is gluten-free). I actually read this thread for myself (non-Celiac). My son prefers straight toasted marshmallows!
