Bonus weekend recipe: Stove-top s'mores

It's kind of pathetic, I know, but I have a horrible new habit. Well, maybe it's a horrible longtime habit. Whatever.

When my sweet tooth gets the best of me late at night, I often turn to marshmallows. I like marshmallows, but I tend to pull them out of the cupboard in a pinch, when there's no ice cream, cookies, or pudding in the house.

I've always been a fan of gas stoves, but toasting marshmallows is one of the reasons I think they are so great. I just put two or three of the fluffy white sweets on a metal skewer and slowly brown them over a medium flame.

In case you've never had the pleasure of making s'mores, you should take your toasted marshmallows and a couple chocolate squares, and make a sandwich with them between graham crackers.

Who needs a campfire, anyway?

Today's question: What's your favorite late-night/quick-and-easy snack?

Ummmmm...smore's! Yummy. I usually turn to something involving ice cream or chocolate syrup and peanut butter and sometimes its just chocolate syrup and peanut butter. Damm sweet teeth!

I think you could do this under the broiler, or even in a toaster oven. Just watch the marshmallows carefully; they'll burn really fast under the broiler.

I love it! When I was a kid, my mom and I did the same thing. I always thought it was so decadent!
