You don’t need a campfire to make these grilled caramel bacon s’mores…just fire up the barbecue and grill them up! The perfect salty/sweet treat.
It’s that time of year again…S’mores season! Don’t you think S’mores are to summer what pumpkin is to fall? Or the ground-hog is to spring? Wait, what?
Hear me out: when you start to see s’mores recipes popping up, you know it’s almost summer. And even though we’re thisclose to June 21, can we please call it summer already? Because the s’mores recipes are rampant, and I have another one for you! With bacon! That’s right, these are bacon s’mores!
But not just any s’more recipe…a campfire-free s’more recipe. Because sometimes, you don’t want to drive all the way out into the mountains and build a campfire just to get your s’mores fix…with this recipe, any day can be a s’mores day!
Why not make s’mores on the barbecue? I mean, it’s the perfect last-minute backyard barbecue snack!
And because sometimes I like to get a little crazy with my desserts (come on, you know it), I threw on some bacon. And caramel sauce. And it was salty-sweet-gooey-melty-s’mores heaven.
