"Bacon weave s'mores?" As soon as the words came out of my mouth, I immediately regretted it. I was embarrassed the concept even crossed my mind. You've gone way too far, Lauren, I thought. The room got uncomfortably silent and my coworkers politely moved onto other ideas. I assumed the idea was dead. Until the next day, when our deputy editor Lindsay sent me an urgent text confirming that bacon s'mores were in fact a thing and that we must shoot bacon weave s'mores ASAP. So here we are.
Is it crazy? Absolutely. Does it taste good? Yes. Yes. Yes. It's disturbingly good.
If you've never made a bacon weave, you're missing out. Start now. They're a welcome addition to basically any sandwich, which, as it turns out, includes s'mores. In this case, the idea is absurd but simple: Replace graham crackers with bacon. It's that easy.
To make the bacon even better, sprinkle a little bit of brown sugar on top before baking. It balances the smokiness of the meat and caramelizes the outside to become candy-like. Although you'll be tempted to, don't eat it before the gooey mallow and melty chocolate come into play. The trifecta is game-changing.
