S'mores Slider StackI wanted to make at least one of these burgers with graham cracker as the bun and I knew if I did it would have to be a slider sized burger. Still though, we thought the crackers would get soggy so we came up with the idea of making marshmallow sandwiches to make the "bun" a little heartier. Then the chocolate is, of course, inside the burger itself. These sliders came out tasty, but we all agreed that they came out S'more-heavy with a hint of burger, as opposed to a clean and balanced melding of s'mores and burgers
Getting some ingredients ready. Not sure why that marshmallow is sliced I didn't use any sliced marshmallows in either of these recipes! Wrap up the chocolate in about 1/8th pound of meat for the slider. Nice square patties with a suprise inside. We just skewered a bunch of marshmallows to toast them for this burger. Form your marshmallow sandwiches, then use them as the bun for this slider. These look like monsters but they are pretty small and manageable in only 3 or so bites (perfect slider size.) As I mentioned though, while very good, the s'mores flavor overpowered the burger flavor and we wished they were more balanced. Also they were way too messy to get the cross section photo of molten chocolate ooze.
The S'moresburgerThis is the true melding of s'mores and burger we were looking for. A regular backyard-sized patty stuffed with a molten chocolate center that comes oozing out when you take a bite. 3 marshmallows melted on top like cheese with just enough char for that campfire marshmallow flavor. 2 simple graham crackers go above and below the burger to complete the s'mores trifecta of flavor. This thing is special.
Break up your chocolate so it stays in the somewhat center of this burger. Disclaimer: I tell you in the instructions to toast the marshmallows and then put them onto the burger, but as you can see these are un-toasted. We had a blowtorch so we went took some liberties. The graham might seem like it is so small that it totally gets lost in this burger, but that isn't true at all, it makes a big difference. Gooey marshmallow madness. One more graham on top, and then the top bun. Oh yea! Don't try and look into the soul of this burger. Warning, messy photos ahead. This burger is completely rediculous.

- 1/8 Pound Ground Beef 85% Lean
- 1/2 Ounce Chocolate Bittersweet 60% Dark

For the sliders - (amounts are per burger)
- Wrap the beef in a thin layer around the square of chocolate. Keep the patty square to match the graham cracker. Salt well. Toast the marshmallows to brown. Use the crackers to make sandwiches with the marshmallows (Like a s'more but without the chocolate). Grill up the burgers until you start to see chocolate wanting to come oozeing out but get it off the grill before it actually comes out too much! Use the marshmallow sandwiches as buns for your burgers.
The S'moresburger - (amounts are per burger)
- Break the chocolate squares so they can lay in a single layer in the center of the burger. Wrap the burger meat around the chocolate. Salt well. Grill the burger on the first side and toast the marshmallows while it is grilling. Flip the burger and put the toasted marshmallows onto the top of the burger, pressing them down a little. Close the grill to allow the marshmallows to melt a little to coat the top of the burger. Meanwhile, lightly toast the buns. Put half of the graham cracker onto the bottom bun, then top with the burger, add the other half of the cracker, and top with the top bun. Watch out for molten chocolate when biting into this thing!
