Problem: An abundance of halloween chocolate and an aging stash of marshmallows were exerting telepathic influence via my sweet tooth, but no graham crackers were to be found within the confines of Casa.
Possible Solution: We have tortillas (and bagels, foreshadowing a possible sequel).
So what does hungry but pathetic blogger attempt? Smoritos! or maybe Smoradillas! depending on trademark research.
Results: The chocolate melted much faster than the marshmallows, leading to uneven distribution of sweetness. Bites including everything were good, but some bites with disproportionate tortilla were salty. Maybe if I nuked the marshmallows first to pre-melt the cores…
Not pathetic as an attempt at all.
I think for this experiement I would combine your ingredients like this:
* melt marshmallows in a bowl in a microwave
* melt chocolate till soft in microwave, but not liquid
* heat tortillas directly on flame enough to change the texture, careful not to burn them!
dollop marshmallow into tortillas, put in a cube or three of chocolate, then wrap like a burrito, wrap in a paper towel and let the combination melt more — then taste.
For smores, I fear you’re always going to miss the graham cracker flavor in this. But chocolate and marshmallow are pretty awesome in a tortilla.
Perhaps you doubt my recipe? It may not be perfect, but I am no newbie in the tortilla arts. Tortillas are an excellent delivery platform for many snacks. A selection of my own tortilla experiments includes:
in the non-sweet category there are even more
tortilla+leftover turkey+season to taste
Quesadillas and tacos obviously are included in this category. But I hate to have the tortilla ghettoized as a “Mexican food.” Neither to I want it to lose its cultural identity, of course – after all, Bunuelos are probably the best sweet thing one can do with tortillas. Lightly fried, covered in sugar and cinnamon — super tasty.
Perhaps I will start a website devoted to the many uses of tortillas.
LOVE the smoritos idea. Perhaps in lieu of marshmellows you try marshmelow cream. OR mini marshmellows are tiny and may melt more quickly.
maybe some graham cracker CRUMBS for taste.
Not sure how you can replicate the beach bonfire taste, however… 🙂
