S'mores Pavlova

S'mores Pavlova

You know that part in Clueless when Cher turns to Ty and says, “Elton said you gave him a toothache.” And Ty was like, “What’s dat?!” And Cher was like, “It means he thinks you’re sweet, stupid.”

This S’mores Pavlova will give you a toothache, in a good way. It oozes summer fun. It shines bright just like a diamond. And it’s screaming to be made and taken and bragged about at a BBQ.

I feel like this recipe is a lil’ ratchet. It’s definitely not the most classy recipe I’ve posted in my life, but it sure is fun.

The pavlova is chocolate-y by way of sifted cocoa powder and folded in bits of dark chocolate. The 7-minute frosting acts like a marshmallow and gets all toasty when a flame kisses it. (You can also do this in the broiler.)

The crushed graham cracker is sprinkled on every. single. layer. My favorite part about this recipe is the chocolate-y pavlova. It’s not crisp and dry throughout, which sometimes I want; this one is gooey and fudge-y in the center.

The idea is that it’s supposed to mimic how a piece of Hershey’s chocolate gets when a warm, toasty, burnt marshmallow is placed on top. It’s like that!

Hey! What kind of real life stuff you got going on this weekend?

Are you about to go on adventure? To a new restaurant? To a new town? Maybe with someone that’ll make you laugh… and make the whole thing that much better…

Are you about to watch your little youngin’ figure out how to put one foot in front of the other? Are you on that tip? That’s some beautiful stuff right there.

Are you planning a night out with your best friend to drink pink wine, talk about boys, tell inappropriate jokes and plan all the fall shoes you’re gonna buy?!

Are you about to watch another human eat a peach for the first time in their lives? This is gorgeous.

Or are you figuring out how you’re gonna make your horrid depressing dorm room cute?!

P.S. I went with the “minimalist” look and spent the rest on liquor that I hid in my ceiling. This is true.

I wanna know what’s going on. Mainly because I’m nosy.

Also, because I love real life talk…and we’re in the thick of it.

Can I tell you how to make all this good stuff slightly better?

I mean, I’m weary to promise big things…but this pudding…is super legit.
