Who doesn’t love s’mores? August 10 is National S’mores Day and any other time I’d be bummed because s’mores usually don’t fit into a low-cal diet. But I have a great skinny version of this all-time favorite treat that I know you will love. They are a huge hit with both the kids and adults.

Yields 6 sandwiches

Ingredients

6 whole low-fat graham crackers, split in half to make 6 sandwiches
3-4 tbsp fat-free sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
A dash of your favorite low-cal sweetener to taste
6 large sugar-free marshmallows or a handful of smaller ones
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

Note: If you can’t find sugar free marshmallows  in your grocery store, you can easily make them at home with this recipe from Food.com.

In a microwave proof dish, heat the sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips on 50% heat in 15 second intervals until smooth. The slower the better. You don’t want to burn the chocolate.

Add the cocoa powder and  stir until smooth again. Taste test and add a little bit of sweetener until you get it the way you want it. Stir in the vanilla extract.

Spread 1 tablespoon of chocolate on six of the graham crackers squares.

Warm your marshmallows over the fire or a grill. Put one on each chocolate covered graham cracker and sandwich with the remaining cracker.

If you’re stuck inside, you can assemble the sandwiches, wrap in foil and heat in 250 degree oven for about 10 minutes.

Want some alternatives to the traditional s’more? Try adding a little peanut butter, banana, apple or strawberry slices or try raspberry sauce if you’re not a chocolate lover.
