My kids love s’mores and are always asking to have a fire pit. The weather has not cooperated, it’s rained, rained and rained most of the summer. Needless to say, there have been no s’mores making at our house. I wanted to make something that would give the feeling of eating s’mores but without the fire. This recipe sure accomplished that!
You get gooey marshmallows, melted chocolate and crunchy graham crackers all in a soft bread pudding. It was really good and definitely satisfied my kids need to make s’mores.
5 cups French bread, cut into cubes (preferably stale or bake for a few minutes to make it crispy)
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup coarsely broken graham crackers
Spray an 8×8″ baking dish with cooking spray. Place the bread cubes in the baking dish and half of the chocolate chips and marshmallows over the bread. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, condensed milk, milk and vanilla. Pour the egg mixture into the baking dish. Lightly press down the bread to make sure it is all coated with the egg mixture. Allow to stand for 5 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Sprinkle three-quarters of the graham crackers over the top of the bread and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the pudding is cooked through and the bread is not soggy. Evenly sprinkle the remaining marshmallows, chocolate chips and graham crackers over the top. Place back into the oven for 5 minutes until the marshmallows are toasted and the chocolate chips have softened. Serve warm.
