Latin Elvis S'mores

I have to admit it's pretty random but....I have become super intrigued with Elvis Presley.

I'm honestly not really sure why, but I think it has a little to do with a Elvis Presley cookbook that I scored at a local flea market for $1.00! 

Obviously there is nothing new about Elvis, I mean I've heard plenty stories about 1,000's of lovely muchachas standing outside of Graceland just to get a peek at him,

I've heard the song "Blue Suede Shoes" more times than I really want to admit to......

and who can forget the millions of videos showing him in his white bell buttoms, freshly appointed side burns and his girating hips!
Up until that one dia  (day) when I scored the deal for his cookbook all of that just gave me a vague idea of who he was.....but now,

Now I realize that Elvis Presley is SUPER GUAPO and has an awesome taste for food!

 I mean as a certified junk food junkie, who could deny a man who loved: crispy fried chicken, ham bone dumplings, bbq bologna and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with fried bacon in between ( Fools Gold Loaf Sandwich) as it's really called!

So I'd like to think that these Latin Elvis S'mores would be something El Rey (The King) would crave...

C'mon anything stuffed with fluffy marshmallows, layers of chocolate, a creamy lake of Latin caramel stuffed between two crisp Graham Crackers in my eyes are definitely the type of ooey gooey cookie goodness fit for a "King"!

Vamos a la cocina!


6  whole graham crackers
1 bag of mini marshmallows
2 ripe bananas
1 bottle of squeezable dulce de leche  I used Lechera
3 Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bars
1 jar of your favorite Peanut Butter ( I adore Skippy!)


I'm not big into using fire to warm and melt my S'mores so I just take a cookie sheet and do the following:

1.Split graham crackers into 2 halves, slice your bananas and set them aside.

2. On top of graham cracker spread on a layer of peanut butter and place on the mini-marshmallows and banana slices.

3. Place bottom half of your S'mores under broiler for a few seconds until toasty. Remove and place 1/2 of a Hershey bar on top of marshmallow and drizzle with the dulce de leche ( if you want the dulce de leche to be warm, you can drizzle it on before it is put into the oven.

4.The heat from the marshmallow will melt the chocolate bar. (If you would like it a little more melty you can always place it back into the broiler for a few extra seconds.

5. Now place other 1/2 of graham cracker on top of all your goodness. Press lightly to flatten marshmallows.

Now sit back...take a bite, and Bienvenidos (Welcome) to S'mores Heaven!
