Easy Gluten Free S'mores

Easiest gluten free s'more ever, plus it's yummier than the original.
Ingredients: raw almonds, butter, marshmallow, chocolate.
Chop up a handful of almonds as fine as you can get them.  For kids you might want to use a blender or food processor to get almond meal (see below), Adults probably won't mind a coarser, texture.  Melt a bit of butter (1/2 tsp to 1 tsp) in a custard cup, then stir in about 1oz of almond meal and press it flat to make a crust.  Add chocolate squares and marshmallow.  It looks and tastes like an open-face S'more.  Bake at 350 4-8 minutes.  Eat with a spoon.

 Two kids didn't like their graham crackers
 I loved the almond crust
Could I do this in foil on a camping trip?  I'm totally gonna try!  I'll just bring my baggy of almond meal

 Almond Meal:  Put 2 cups of frozen/cold raw almonds in blendtec on  speed 9 until the meal sticks to the edges and isn't getting blended anymore, about 30 seconds.  Put it in a jar and refrigerate, try to use within a week.  Use it on hot cereal, pancakes, waffles, to make granola, cookies, brownies, as a salad topper, in yogurt, with rice, on a sandwich instead of peanut butter, as a crumb crust or topping, or plain with honey/agave and milk.
