S'Mores, Indoors!

Today was a gorgeous day and tonight promises to be cool.  Katie and Bill have their fire pit ready, Adirondack Chairs circling round.  A fire at night usually means we break out the graham crackers, marshmallows, and Hershey Bars.  We find good marshmallow sticks in the woods and the S'More fest is on.  If, however, you do not have a fire pit, and don't want to work through a blackened marshmallow to get to the soft middle, how about making your S'Mores in the oven?  It's easy to do and it will remind you of your campfire days!

S'Mores, Indoors
(inspired by Paula Deen and the Food Network)

Preheat oven to broil.
Place oven rack about 6 inches from broiler.

Have ready:  graham crackers, halved, marshmallows (not mini), Hershey bars (1/2 a bar per S'More)

Place a piece of aluminum foil on a cookie sheet, shiny side up. 
Arrange graham cracker squares (half a cracker) on cookie sheet.  On top of each, place a large marshmallow.  Heat under broiler until marshmallow begins to brown and is soft in the middle.  Watch carefully, this can happen very quickly.
Remove from oven.  Place half a Hershey Bar over soft marshmallow.  Place other half of graham cracker on top.  Press down.  

Let sit for a minute, then enjoy!
