aren't smores toasted marshmellow's? I did a search for them on google but all I got was regular vegan smores. So, I don't think so. I don;t even know how you could go about making them.. something mushy and sticky.. hmm

some things you just have to give up. like cotton candy. :rolleyes:
my bf contributes:
making raw food look like smores won't achieve what your body wants anyway, which is all the sugar you get from smores. The impulse that drove you to want raw smores is your primitive brain wanting sugar for energy, and your "higher" brain not wanting to consume the extra sugar.

There is a plant called a marshmallow:
" One commonly proposed theory about the origin of marshmallow holds that the traditional recipe used an extract from the mucilaginous root of the marshmallow plant, a shrubby herb (Althaea officinalis), instead of gelatin; the mucilage was used to soothe sore throats. However, while concoctions of all parts of the plant have been used as medicine, a more likely origin for the modern sweet can be found in old recipes: Stems of marsh mallow were peeled to reveal the soft and spongy pith with a texture similar to manufactured marshmallow. This pith was boiled in sugar syrup and dried to produced a soft, chewy confection.["
If the "pith" is edible when uncooked, it may be posable to make a raw marshmallow. I am yet to cross paths with the stuff, though. In this day and age, you'd probably have to go and pick it straight out of a marsh somewhere.

They serve them in Cafe 118 in Orlando and that was set up by Mathew Kenney so maybe he has the recipe in one of his books.
I tried it and found it too sweet. He has much nicer desserts on the menu for me.

Look. I found it on line on his website. How convenient is that.
I swear after reading that extended recipe, I'd slap a real smore together and be done with it.
The I'd call it a 'learning day'.
I've tried the smores at their restaurant and have played around trying to replicate it... I think they used young coconut for it rather than the recipe that was on that link...
Gotta love Cafe 118! Their business hadn't picked up yet when I went (they were brand new), but the food and service is really spectacular.
