How to Make a Cherry S'more - Olivia's Dark Chocolate with Fresh Cherries recipe

After making our blue cheese burgers and orzo salad dinner, Sweetpea decided we needed to make our S'mores extra-special this weekend. She has a very particular way of making them (of course she would).

First, you have to brown the marshmallows without catching them on fire. 

Then she melts the chocolate squares slightly by holding them close to the hot fire. 

Finally, let little brother eat the first one since he had burned his foot on a hot coal that had fallen on the floor and was unable to make his own.

After an exhaustive google search for cherry s'mores, I think she may have actually invented a new recipe! I found recipes for s'mores made with marshmallow creme, dried cherries, maraschino cherries, baked into cookies, melted in the microwave - but none with fresh cherries added on to traditional s'mores roasted over an outdoor fire. 

The sweetness of the cherries combined with the strength of the dark chocolate made for a delicious combination.
