I am sharing two dessert/ice cream recipes in a row ....... and the only excuse I have is summer, heatwave. Serious heatwave. But I'm not complaining at all. A little extra heat to use as excuse to eat more ice cream is fine by me.
Also, any excuse to spend a little less time in the kitchen and a little more time at the beach or poolside with friends in the dog days of summer is also fine by me. And while I love projects such as homemade ice cream and homemade pies, I also welcome a little sandra lee inspired simplistic meals. You know, the semi-homemade kind of recipes where you find the best of the pre-made stuff and throw it together so your dinner parties are that much easier. For me, the best quality dark chocolate, organic graham crackers, and dairy-free vanilla make the best/easy/summertime dessert.
Oh, and s'mores without the hassle of building a campfire is just taking this to a whole other level of lazy summer cooking. Cover a sheet pan in foil, place the chocolate on top of the graham cracker, cook until the chocolate melts. Scoop your favorite cold ice cream on top and that is one helluva delicious, semi-lazy, adult kind of s'more that you can eat with a fork and knife to save your fingers from getting super sticky. Boom.

grilled open-faced s'more ice cream sandwiches
2 s'more ice cream sandwiches
2 square pieces of graham cracker
1 bar of chocolate, cut in half
2 scoops of ice cream (flavor of your choice)
- Pre-heat the grill to medium heat.
- Fold the Reynolds Wrap® Foil for the grill in half, making a rectangle that is about 8”x11”, and place it onto the grill in the center. Or, if you're using regular Reynolds Wrap Foil®, then you can just cover a baking sheet in the foil.
- Place the graham crackers onto the foil, and place the chocolate squares on top. Close the grill, and cook for about 3-5 minutes, until the chocolate has melted. Using a spatula, transfer the crackers to a plate.
- Scoop some ice cream over top of one of the crackers with chocolate, and then top with the other cracker and chocolate. Top with any additional toppings you like such as marshmallows or crumbled graham crackers. Serve immediately.
*Reynolds Kitchens Tip: Using Reynolds Wrap® Foil for the grill allows you to melt the chocolate onto the graham cracker, with ease and without dripping chocolate onto the grill.
