I read pretty much any chance I get. I mostly read YA books but some adult ones as well. To me all books are precious gems and are meant to be treasured.

The Third Recipe for S'more Month Is......

S'more Brulee:
( By Paula Deen )

- This one takes a little more time to cook and cool
- Serves 8

  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 8 large egg yolks
  • 1 small bag mini marshmallows
  • Graham crackers, for garnish


- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Bring cream and half & half to boil in large heavy sauce pan.
- Reduce heat to low.
- Add finely chopped chocolate and whisk until melted and very smooth.
- Remove from heat.
- In large bowl whisk yolks until they are uniform in color.
- Gradually whisk in half of the hot chocolate mixture.
- Whisk until very smooth.
- Once eggs are slightly warmed in this way, gradually add the rest of hot mixture whisking all the while.
- Strain if desired.
- Divide custard among 8 (3/4 cup) custard cups.
- Place cups in large baking pan.
- Add enough hot water to pan to come halfway up sides of cups.
- Bake until custards are set, about 50 mins.
- Remove from water and chill for 3 hours.
- To finish, top custard with a layer of mini marshmallows.
- Use a kitchen blowtorch to evenly caramelize the tops of the marshmallow and garnish with graham crackers.
(You can also broil them so that the tops caramelize; just have to keep a close eye on them so they don't burn.)
