So I must admit, my downfall is Chef Mark LoRusso’s Chocolate S’more Doughnuts at Wynn Resort’s  Botero Restaurant. Last evening, I had to introduce my “Blue Baker” to this over the top, melt in your mouth, can’t get enough dessert. Honestly, this has no connection whatsoever to my memories of roasting marshmallows over a bonfire and putting between two graham crackers with squares of bar chocolate.

These warm, brioche doughnuts covered with just a sprinkle of graham crackers have a gooey marshmellow filling. The melted chocolate for dipping is warmed and the creme anglaise is beyond description. The homemade marshmallow square is just off the grill. Now, slowly assemble.

Close your eyes and savor the taste sensation. So what if it’s the holiday season. Watching calories is probably smarter than full press, jump over the cliff decadence, but .   .   . Afterall, some desserts should defy the standard rules for calorie counting. This one is at the top of the list.

I have chef’s restaurant recipe, but who would bother when you can fly to Vegas for the weekend, stay at the fabulous Wynn Resort Las Vegas and enjoy a great meal at the 2011 AAA Four Diamond Award recipient’s Botero Restaurant?  Now pick up the phone and get your reservation!
