Last week my neighbor was discussing s’mores on Facebook. She and her friends were discussing the merits of s’mores heated in the oven or microwave, but my thoughts immediately turned to the solar oven. How simple! Why hadn’t I already thought of this?
It was already getting late in the afternoon on a cool day when we decided to put out the GSO. So we only let the oven pre-heat for about 10 minutes.
- Graham crackers
- Chocolate bars
I put a layer of graham crackers in the bottom of a cookie pan. Since I only had large marshmallows, I cut them in half and put a piece on each cracker.
And then into the GSO to heat. I thought that the marshmallows would take a bit longer than the chocolate to melt. In fact the oven just didn’t have time to get really hot that day, and it took longer to get the marshmallows hot than I had thought. But finally the marshmallows warmed up, and we added pieces of chocolate, and added another layer of graham crackers.
After another 15 minutes in the GSO, the marshmallows were warm and gooey and the chocolate was melted.
Classic s’mores –solar oven style.
