Double Dark Chocolate S'mores

What is better than a regular s'mores sandwich?  Answer: One made with dark chocolate and chocolate graham crackers.  This makes the perfect last summer-dessert-hoorah!

I shall be departing for the UK and starting my masters degree very soon!  No worries, as I have plenty of recipes saved up to tide the blog over until I get a flat.

You will need:
Dark chocolate candy bar
Chocolate-flavored graham crackers

I suppose most Americans are fully-capable of building a s'more, but for anyone else reading that somehow manages to get their hands on some graham crackers... simply layer the chocolate on the cracker, with the marshmallows on the very top.

There are several ways to toast the marshmallows, the most rustic being on the ends of sticks over a campfire.  Failing that, you can toast them over heated coals.  But, perhaps the most accessible way to toast the marshmallows is to make your s'more, leave it open-faced, and pop it in the oven on a low 'broil' until the marshmallows puff up and brown.

Once everything inside has melted, simply pop another chocolate graham cracker on top!
