I have no issues with North America’s collective love affair with s’mores. In fact, I can overlook all the uncomfortable nuisance of sitting around a campfire just for the experience of toasting a perfectly golden molten marshmallow. I have skills, you know. What doesn’t get me excited is graham cracker. It is the weakest link in the s’mores trifecta, easily outshined by melting chocolate and gooey smoky marshmallow. It can barely fulfill its responsibility as delivery vehicle. Something needs to be done.
It’s no secret that I love pretzels in all shapes and forms. When I saw that President’s Choice introduced mini soft pretzel rolls this summer, I snapped up a bag with no second thought. I suspect most people would fill it with grilled sausages but I immediately imagined its potential to elevate s’mores. With crispy crust and soft warm crumb, the pretzel roll would add just the right touch of contrast to chocolate and marshmallows.
