Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes.Measure 2 cups sugar, 2/3 cup corn syrup and ¼ cup water into a heavy saucepan. Using a narrow, deeper saucepan works better than a wider, more shallow one. This helps in terms of tracking the temperature. Bring the mixture to a boil and continue boiling until it reaches 250 degrees F, the hard ball stage in candy making.With the paddle attachment of the stand mixer in place, and with the mixer running on low speed, slowly pour the sugar mixture into the gelatin. Add ¼ teaspoon salt. Increase the mixer speed to high. Continue beating on high speed for 10 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon vanilla extract.Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and let it sit overnight to dry.Combine ½ cup powdered sugar and ½ cup potato starch on a plate for dredging the marshmallows. Using a pizza cutter or just a sharp knife, cut the marshmallows into the desired shapes. Dredge them in the combined powdered sugar/potato starch mixture on all sides.Graham CrackersGraham flour is hard to find. It is technically winter wheat flour with the germ left in. For this recipe, you can use a mixture of whole wheat flour and unbleached white flour with successful results.* ½ stick (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter * 1 large egg * 6 tablespoons sugar * 4 tablespoons honey * 1-1/2 cups graham or whole wheat flour * ¾ cup unbleached white flour * ¼ teaspoon cinnamon * ½ teaspoon baking soda * ¾ teaspoon saltPREPARATIONPreheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Stir in the honey.Stir together the graham or whole wheat flour, unbleached white flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Add to the butter mixture in two parts.Dust a surface with the graham or whole wheat flour. Form the dough into a ball and roll out to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut the dough into 2 dozen crackers or cracker size and shape of your choosing. Prick each cracker with the tines of a fork.Move to the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 6 to 9 minutes or until a deep golden brown. Cool on a rack.Assembling the S’MoresPlace graham crackers on cookie sheet. Top with your desired 5 gram square of Scharffen Berger chocolate. We particularly like to use the 82% Cacao Extra Dark. The flavors go very well with the sweetness of the marshmallow.Top the 5 gram square with a marshmallow.Put the tray under a broiler and carefully watch so the marshmallow browns but does not burn.
