Can you believe it?!? Smores Challah! For Realz!
It wasn’t that good. But I think it was the execution that was flawed — not the concept.
As you can tell by the pictures, I flatted out the dough (which was the last of the previously-frozen low-fat dough that no one bought ), sprinkled it with graham cracker crumbs, chocolate chips and marshmallows. I then rolled it up, as you would a jelly roll, put some decorative scores across the top, as well as a little but more graham cracker, and then baked it.
I was expecting a rich and decadent, thick layer of smores goodness in the middle. Actually, I was hoping for layers of smoresness swirled throughout, like a real jelly roll, but once I rolled it and there wasnt enough dough to complete more than one revolution, I adapted my expectations. I was hoping the marshmallows would be gooey, but still identifiable, and that the whole thing would be a smores wrapped in a challah.
When we cut into it, the middle was rather underwhelming. It tasted of smores, but was really just a thin layer of desserty mush. No little fluffy marshmallows, and not much chocolate. The crunchy graham was completely gone.
Had I made it from scratch rather than using premade dough, I’d probably mix all the ingredients into the dough as I was adding the flour. I think having random marshmallows and chocolate throughout the challah would be amazing, and I’m definitely going to try it at some point in the future.
So, smores challah is a yet to be finalized chapter in the Adventures in Challah chronicles. How will it end? Only time will tell.
