Pumpkin White Chocolate Smores: A twist on the original smore, that SCREAMS Fall, and can be made outdoors over a campfire or indoors in a microwave!
There’s something about the flavor of pumpkin that kicks of the Fall season for me. (I have a feeling it does most of you too, because my Facebook feed is FLOODED with the term “pumpkin,” for a solid two-three months. Right!?
I’m a sucker for taking the original creation of something, and adding an easy touch of flair, to kick it up a notch. So when my gal pals and I were sitting around the table the other day, we started dreaming of smores, and one of them exclaimed, “PUMPKIN! We HAVE to do some sort of pumpkin smores.” She was right. So we did. And friends… this was the result, and they’re heavenly.
Pumpkin White Chocolate Smores
Let me just start by saying, original smores are completely blissful. Yes? But the minute we added a a white chocolate square, and spoonful of pumpkin pie filling on to the top of a melted marshmallow, we kind of fell in love all over again.
Ghirardelli White Chocolate
Using the white chocolate squares were kind of amazing. Ok, a lot amazing.
Indoor or Outdoor?
We live smack dab in the middle of town, so the day that we wanted to whip them up, we really didn’t have the kind of atmosphere to build a fire outside. So we did the next best thing, and made them indoor. I absolutely love making them inside, because no matter the weather… we can still enjoy smores for movie nights.
Toast those mallows!
How did we toast the marshmallows then? You can snag one of those creme brulee torches here, and they seem to toast marshmallows just as well!
A little more warmth?
Then once the marshmallow reaches its desired “toasty-ness,” we put ours in the microwave for just a few seconds to get it to melt a bit more. (But depending on how long you use the torch, you may not have to microwave it.)
You can make your own pumpkin topping for these by adding your favorite spices, or you can simply grab a can of pumpkin pie filling, to make it super easy. Warm it up just before making the smores, and you’ve added a whole other level of deliciousness.
Making the smores outside? Just empty the can in to a cute little bowl, with a spoon for dipping, and put it right by the smores station!
Top that marshmallow with a spoonful of pumpkin, and close the creation with the other graham cracker.
Its kind of heavenly, really. But sadly, I can’t stop there. My mind is already wandering, and dreaming up more topping ideas for smores. Perhaps, an apple pie smore? A lemon smore? Don’t get me started… I’ll never stop.
