After a long day of skiing, there is nothing better than cozying up by a crackling fire with a sweet treat. Snowmass S’mores returns with a new, COVID friendly s’mores iteration. Because even a pandemic can’t get in the way of this Snowmass tradition, even if that means cuddling up in your slopeside condo for socially distanced s’mores family style.
Innovation seems to be one of the many themes of 2020 and on that front, mix6 and Slow Groovin’ Chophouse are bringing it with two unique takes on this sweet treat. In Snowmass Base Village, enjoy a mix6 S’mores Cup, complete with chocolate ganache. On the Snowmass Mall, taste the S’mores Bar, a secret recipe made of chocolate graham cracker crust topped with layers of rice crispy, homemade toasted marshmallow, and chocolate drizzle, sprinkled with graham crumbs, courtesy of the newly rebranded Slow Groovin’ Chophouse.
Be sure to check out both locations to try each s’mores inspired treat!
For the traditionalist, Snowmass’ favorite fireside snack only calls for three ingredients…
Graham Crackers? Check!
Chocolate Bars? Check!
With these in hand and a toasty flame to gather around, you are ready to start roasting some s’mores!
Though associated with camping, s’mores have become the ultimate snack for après in Snowmass. Not only do local restaurants stock the fixings as does Clark’s Market at Town Center and GG’s market – opening December 2020 in Base Village.
Are you new to s’mores? Have no fear, the process couldn’t be easier! Start by skewering your marshmallow on the s’mores stick and rotate it above the flames of the fire pit until it is roasted to a perfect, toasty, golden brown. Like rotisserie, the best roasted marshmallows have an even golden brown all the way around. The key is to warm it up, making the inside soft and gooey without catching the marshmallow on fire (practice makes perfect but that just means more s’mores for you!). Local’s insider tip – if you put the graham with chocolate by the fire, your marshmallow vessel will be perfectly melted as well. Once your marshmallow is roasted, put the graham cracker with chocolate around the bottom and squeeze it with the other half of the graham cracker to slide it off the roasting stick. Once your s’more is assembled it’s likely you’ll need both hands to complete the dismount and ensure every sticky, chocolaty bite is accounted for.
While chocolate, ‘mallows and grahams are the conventional construction, everyone loves a good remix. Shake things up with specialty ingredients to mix up the s’mores flavor profile, like stroopwafels, white chocolate, mint chocolate, pretzel crisps, peanut butter cups, or gingerbread cookies. Think we missed something? Show us your 2020 take on the s’more and don’t forget to tag @Snowmass!
No matter how “grown up” you believe yourself to be, we are all young at heart and never too old for time around the fire making s’mores. So, gather up your tribe for a nostalgic laugh or a cozy up to loved ones and enjoy this classic toasted treat.
Little kids and big kids alike, we will see you in Snowmass for another season of s’mores!
