Valentine’s Day is a trade-off in our house. One year I plan. The next year he plans. It’s romantic, I promise. We have yet to talk about it this year though. I’m hoping that means it’s his turn. But just in case, I’ll have s’mores ready. They have a sweet spot in our hearts.
A couple Valentine’s ago I took him out for sushi. A true act of love. Try as I might, I can’t stomach it. I ordered the one non-sushi item on the menu—a chicken teriyaki bowl—with all the other kids in the restaurant. We hopped next door for dessert—s’mores. A mini flame, dark chocolate, graham crackers, and marshmallows. It was far from fancy but just right for us. There’s something about making food together that makes my heart go pitter patter. Even if roasting and assembly is all that’s involved. That must be the secret to fondue restaurants. But my favorite part—looking up at each other after taking the first bite. Roasted marshmallow left on the sides of our mouth. With a shmear of chocolate. And a smile on our face. Something you can only do in the midst of complete comfort.
I hope your Valentine’s Day is filled with messy s’mores and smiles.
That sounds wonderful!
We have s’mores on Valentine’s Day too! It’s a good tradition 🙂
Yum! Will definitely give these a try, if I can save any marshmallows that is 🙂
I had to make more just for these gems! It’s a problem. Kinda 🙂
Love these! Oh how I wish you could teach me your styling skills
You are too kind! I feel like I never know what I’m doing. Composition has always been my weakness.
Awww this looks like a real treat! I adore s’mores.
Sounds like my kind of Valentine’s Day 🙂 Smores are always a fun treat! I cannot stomach sushi for some reason either and always get a veggie stir fry or vegetable tempura. I’m glad I’m not alone! 🙂
Homemade graham crackers?! I looove this! So perfect and “homey”. Great recipe 🙂
These look yum!

This sounds like just about the perfect dessert recipe for Valentine’s Day! Those homemade graham crackers… YUM.
I’ve been meaning to make homemade graham crackers for ever. Thanks for the reminder! I’m hoping that eating these messy s’mores will be just as fun with a group of my favorite girls!
Oh, yum. I definitely need to give these a try.
Lovely. I all about comfortable-romantic, too. Your s’mores are so pretty!
That is such a cute tradition that you take turns planning out valentine day dates. I’ve never made graham crackers from scratch excited to try the recipe.
This post makes me think of summer and bonfires! I wish I had a smores right now! =)
I think I’m craving summer bonfires too. A few more months if I’m lucky. In the meantime, I have my gas stove for better or worse.
Homemade graham crackers + Green & Black’s sounds like the perfect valentine’s day treat! Delicious.
