Gluten-Free Strawberry S'mores | Swirls and Spice

Strawberry S’mores {Gluten Free}

Take some fresh strawberries, your favorite chocolate, and warm fluffy marshmallows.  Then add some Pistachio Almond Blondie Brittle above and beneath.  The result? A swoon-worthy dessert no one will want to miss!

Gluten-Free Strawberry S'mores | Swirls and SpiceWhile we were visiting friends and family this summer, I had exactly one chance to eat s’mores, but I missed out.  At Grandma’s house in Missouri, certain children roasted and consumed all the marshmallows before I had a single bite.  My craving ever since then spurred me to create something new and delicious and absolutely worth the wait!

Gluten-Free Strawberry S'mores | Swirls and Spice

Make these strawberry s’mores in your backyard fire pit, over a gas grill, or even in your humble oven, and you’ve got a sure way to cap off the last weeks of summer with smiles of delight. Slipping in some tangy strawberry slices (which is a great way to rescue imperfect or on-the-edge berries) makes these s’mores reminiscent of chocolate-dipped strawberries.  The touch of fruit also prevents the s’mores from tasting overly sweet–my one qualm with traditional s’mores.

Even for the rare kid–like my youngest daughter–who won’t eat regular chocolate, these s’mores are a great treat.  Simply make them without any chocolate or use white chocolate.  Because strawberries…and marshmallows!  Who can resist?

Strawberry S'mores - Gluten Free

  • Print

Ingredients:

  • Large fresh strawberries, rinsed and sliced
  • Chocolate candy bars, such as dark chocolate, white chocolate, or milk chocolate*
  • Large marshmallows
  • Pistachio Almond Blondie Brittle** (scored into squares while baking)

*dairy-free chocolate chips can be substituted if necessary

**chopped pecans may be substituted for the pistachios if desired

Directions:

  1. Make pistachio almond blondie brittle as directed, except halfway through the baking time, pull the not-yet-crisp cookie out of the oven and score it into large cracker squares with a knife.  Let blondie brittle cool completely once it is done baking.  The squares should be crisp after cooling.  If not, separate and flip over the squares and bake at a low temperature (250 degrees F) for 10 to 15 minutes.  Allow the blondie brittle squares to cool again.  These can be made ahead and stored in a sealed container if desired.
  2. Roast marshmallows over a flame (such as a campfire or gas grill) to desired level of doneness.  Or follow the directions here for oven-baked s’mores.  Place the warm marshmallow on a square of almond brittle.  Layer a piece of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or white chocolate over the warm marshmallow.  Top with a slice of strawberry, followed by another cookie brittle square to complete the sandwich. Eat s’mores while still warm.

    1. Yes, it is really a heavenly treat to have the strawberry, chocolate, and almond flavors mingling together in each bite! It might be hard for me to go back to regular graham crackers!

  1. This sounds so good! I have never been a smore fan until this summer. I have had more then my fair share. Love the addition of fresh strawberries, and a natural pairing with the chocolate!

    Have a spectacular weekend!

  2. Yum! I’ll have to try using strawberries next time we do s’mores, it looks amazing! And that blondie brittle looks so good!
