Make A Decadent Fantastic S'mores Bar for The Upcoming Fantastic Four Wedding
As the Grimm-Masters wedding approaches, here's a delicious treat you can celebrate the happy couple with!
You are cordially invited to the wedding of Alicia Reiss Masters and Benjamin Jacob Grimm!
That’s right, on December 26, Ben Grimm will finally say “I do” in FANTASTIC FOUR #5 (the series' very special 650th issue)! Together since 1962, it’s about time that The Thing and Alicia made it official.
To celebrate this momentous occasion 56 years in the making, this Fantastic Four S’mores Bar contains all the elements for an epic team up: Mister Fantastic Marshmallows and Sue Storm Blue Chocolate are heated up thanks to a fiery tribute to Johnny Storm, all of which are sandwiched between two rock-like Thing Crackle Cookies perfect for a DIY wedding dessert. Make your own Fantastic S’mores and enjoy this super sweet homage to the First Family of Marvel. Congrats Alicia and Ben!
Fantastic Four S'mores Bar
flame/ethanol chafing fuel
silpat mat or parchment paper
Sue Storm Blue Chocolate
blue candy melts
Step 1: Place the blue candy melts in a heat-safe bowl and microwave at 15-20 second intervals until melted.
Step 2: Spoon evenly into the silicone mold, tapping to release excess air bubbles. Place in the freezer to set.
Ben Grimm Thing Cookies
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ cups sugar
1 cup unsalted butter
½ cup white sugar for rolling
½ cup powdered sugar for rolling
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
orange food gel dye
pinch of salt
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prep baking sheets with silpats or parchment.
Step 2: In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
Step 3: In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar.
Step 4: Add the vanilla extract, eggs, and orange dye until just combined.
Step 5: Stir in the dry ingredients until the dough comes together.
Step 6: Form walnut-sized balls of dough, roll them in white sugar, then in powdered sugar. Place onto the prepped baking sheets.
Step 7: Bake for 14 minutes. The Ben Grimm Thing cookies should look cracked. Let cool slightly on the baking sheets, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
Step 8: Serve with charred Mister Fantastic marshmallows and Sue Storm blue chocolate over Johnny Storm flame to complete the s’mores.
It's marryin' time!
