When darkness falls and the campfire lights up at night, there’s a promise of a sweet treat. S’mores are the classic dessert where everyone has gathered around the flame. But sometimes, a taste twist can make that bite even more enjoyable. Fancy trying some savory s’mores recipes?
A s’mores recipe is quite simple, marshmallow, chocolate and graham crackers. While each ingredient may change a bit, the basic idea is a sweet dessert. Even if one chars the marshmallow too much or adds some peanut to the chocolate, the recipe is sweet at its core.
Sometimes a little savory note can make a dessert even more delicious. Just like the idea that a touch of salt brings out the sweetness, a savory note can bring all the flavors together. Why not bring the savory flavors to s’mores?
Recently, Reynolds Kitchens created two savory s’mores recipes that people are talking about. The taste of the unexpected may be a little unusual, but the first bite won’t be the last.
The Caramel S’more and Bacon Cookies is the perfect mix of salty and sweet. Similar to the idea of a salted caramel, the bacon brings that salty note. In short, this dessert covers all taste notes.
While the Reynolds Kitchens version uses a dough made from scratch, a dough mix can also be used. Or a store-bought cookie can also be used. Simply sprinkle with the bacon, caramel and marshmallow.
For a recipe that pushes the boundaries of taste even further, pickle s’mores will get people talking. This dessert idea is either loved or hated. There is no middle ground. But pickle lovers will want to master this idea.
Basically, this recipe adds pickles to the classic s’mores recipe. While the recipe doesn’t specify the type of pickles, it could just be a personal preference. Or it can be fun to try different types of pickles and see which flavor works best.
Whether these savory s’mores recipes are enjoyed around the campfire or they inspire some creativity in the kitchen, a new flavor awaits. Are you ready for a savory twist?
