Recipe of the week: S’mores treats a la Hamptons


Who says s’mores must be messy? Sure, the favorite campfire treat, with its oozy chocolate and melted marshmallow, is not easy to contain. (And sometimes that’s what we love about it.) But it’s not impossible. 

Consider Annie Falk’s Gourmet S’mores. The Palm Beach philanthropist and author fashions more of a s’mores tartlet than a gooey little sandwich. The recipe, contained in her 2015 book, “Hamptons Entertaining” (Stewart, Tabori & Chang), is a perfect one to make when National S’mores Day falls on a weekday, as it does Thursday. 

Enjoy!
