Servings 5 sandwiches


  • 2 pounds 5 cups shredded russet potatoes, washed and peeled
  • 1 large egg whisked
  • 1/2 cup graham crackers crushed into crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar plus more for sprinkling
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt plus more for sprinkling
  • ½ cup oil such as canola or grape seed
  • 5 marshmallows plus a few more for eating
  • 5 chocolate squares or pieces of gelt!


  • To make latkes, fill a large bowl with ice and cold water. Shred potatoes using the large holes of a hand grater into the bowl of ice-cold water and let sit for 10 minutes.
  • Then, remove the potatoes (use tongs if necessary. The water is super cold. You may be tougher than I am.) and squeeze out any extra moisture (as much as possible) into the water bowl. Finish drying potatoes really well with a towel.
  • Let the water sit for 15 minutes so the starch builds up on the bottom of the bowl with water. Carefully drain off water and reserve the milky white starch. You may have to scrape it off. Dry the bowl very well.
  • Place shredded potatoes back in the large bowl. Then add in egg, reserved starch, graham cracker crumbs, cinnamon, sugar and salt and stir to combine.
  • Heat up a ¼ inch layer of oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. You know the oil is ready if a small bit of latke batter sizzles when placed in oil. Scoop ¼ cup dollops of the latke mixture into oil and flatten slightly and fry until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and fry on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter adding more oil if necessary (make sure to heat the oil back up.)
  • Drain latkes briefly on towels and place on cooling racks. Season with salt and sugar immediately.
  • To make sandwiches, drain oil from pan and heat over medium heat. Place one latke down, top with a marshmallow split in half the long way and a piece of chocolate. Top with another latke. Brown 1-2 minutes per side until marshmallow is gooey and chocolate is melted. Eat right away!
