View Full Version : Smore ideas?
07-08-2005, 11:59 AM
A few of my friends are getting together and they've decided that they want to make smores for old times sake...does anyone have any ideas about what i could make instead? I wouldnt mind having it already made and just bringing it along...i was thinking about just trying to make a sweet cracker sort of thing and try to find a whipped creme recipie...but i cant seem to find either, so I may just experiment and see what i get. any suggestions?

i liked reading that because just the other day i was thinking i want smores! and i thought - well smores are one of the rare cooked foods that we cannot make raw! (like croissants!) what did you come up with? i like that sweet cracker and cream idea. maybe with dates and almomds as a chocolate substitute.

I'll bet almond butter mixed with carob and honey on a cracker would make a nice substitute....

I might suggest making a great "Nutella" like spread using ground nibs (raw chocolate) and almond butter, and sweetened with agave...
YOu could spread it on a nut based dehydrator cracker, with a slice of banana for a "marshmallow"?
Sounds delish actually, must try!

Here is a recipe for whipped cream for starters and we can find crackers and chocolate to replace them! :)
1 1/2 cups raw walnuts, cashews or nuts of your choice
Filtered water for soaking nuts
1/2 cup fresh- squeezed orange juice
2 tablespoons maple syrup
A few drops of almond extract (optional)
INSTRUCTIONS: Put nuts in a container filled with enough water to cover; let soak for at least 2 hours. Drain. Place nuts in a blender; add orange juice, maple syrup and, if you wish, a few drops of almond extract. Blend, scraping down sides of blender jar with a rubber scraper to help cream turn over. Stop and check for sweetness and consistency; add more water if cream is still too stiff. Continue blending until fluffy and smooth.
Use immediately. Yields 1 1/2 cups.

woo-hoo! great ideas, guys...it turned out that i didnt have enough time to dehydrate my cracker/cookie all the way so it was still sticky, but i used dates, figs and flaxseeds for my cracker, a creamy pie filling recipe for my marshmallow, and a raw brownie recipie for my chocolate...it was, well, interesting...i'd still like to experiment more with it, I cant wait :-)

HaS ANYONE come up with a good recipe for these or close to it?

Okay here is my graham cracker recipe
4 cups frozen corn (take fresh corn and cut off the cob, then freeze, it changes the texture)
3/4 cup flax meal (flax seed, ground, unsoaked)
1 tsp fresh ginger (grated)
1/2 cup coconut oil
3 T agave' nectar
1 T mesquite' pod meal
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/8 tsp Celtic Sea Salt
put into food processor, and blend until smooth
spread onto teflex sheets (makes two), and score with the back of a knife to make the shapes and sizes you want.
I tried these and really like them .. maybe a little less lemon in the crackers for smores though... also I think dark brown Agave may add to the the taste for more grahamish crackers :)

Can someone explain what 'smores' are? Don't think I've ever heard of those in England.

Graham cracker as the base, a toasted marshmallow in the middle with a piece of chocolate (gets it nice and melty!) and another cracker for the top. Great camping food with the camp fire going and everyone roasting the marshmallows. I've eaten my fair share of these through the years and will sure try the ideas here to come up with a raw alternative!

I thought of these the other day! I haven't had smores since they broke the news that the Emes's vegan carageenan/gelatin in the vegan marshmallows wasn't really vegan. *sigh*
Not that it matters now!
Keep me/us updated on the progress of this smore experiment!! I'm interested to know.

In Australia they wrap bananas, rose marshmallows and chocolate in tin foil and roast it on the campfire grate. I really miss that. I was thinking if we found a way to do the marshmallows then you could kinda mush up the bananas a little to give them that roast consistancy and roll them in carob. Could be easier than trying to do graham crackers...

I would do 2 sweet crackers with Rp's raw brownie and misslinda whipped topping in between.

Here is a chocolate you could use.
Then you could wrap them in foil and set in the sun or dehydrator
