I was really in the mood for a fruity s’more this week so my 2 1/2 year old daughter and I went to the produce section to find something fresh, in season and yummy that would pair well with dark chocolate. I was leaning towards peaches, but she took one look at the kiwis and said “I want that little brown one!” I wasn’t sure if it was kiwi season in New Zealand (where these and I assume most kiwis are from) so I was dubious. They didn’t feel like they’d be particularly sweet.
In fact, they were a bit tart. However, that tartness was perfect for this s’more! I used Vanilla Bean Plush Puffs with 2 cookies with dark chocolate on the cookies. So, with the double chocolate and the vanilla sweetness of the marshmallows, the tartness was absolutely perfect.
- Vanilla Bean Plush Puffs Gourmet Marshmallows
- Chocolate covered cookies such as these or these. OR, a favorite, buttery cookie and some dark chocolate. 70% cocoa chocolate is great with this s’more
- Fresh kiwis peeled and sliced into circles
Lay out a chocolate covered cookie on a plate chocolate side up OR top a plain cookie with chocolate. Toast up a marshmallow or two and place on top of the chocolate. Top the marshmallow with one or two slices of kiwi and top with a second cookie (chocolate side down for chocolate covered cookies). Let it sit for about 15 seconds so the toasted marshmallow melts the chocolate on the bottom just a little bit.
