We rarely have campfires, but when we do my kids love to roast S’mores. After seeing the “So Much S’More to Do” book in a half dozen National Park visitor centers, we decided to buy one. We loved it so much that we gave a book, plus a dozen or so S’more fixings to all of our family for Christmas last year.
Last week we had a little get-together with all of my family here in Minnesota, and my brother has a beautiful, new fire pit in his backyard we just had to put to good use. The girls took a trip to the grocery store for the treats and we had a great evening roasting marshmallows over the fire and discovering new, delicious ways to eat them!
Some of our favorite personal recipes:
Directions: Roast your marshmallow until golden brown. Gently pull it off your stick and put a piece of Hershey’s chocolate INSIDE the marshmallow. Let it melt for 1-2 minutes and eat without a graham cracker.
S’Less with Peanut Butter
Directions: Same as above, only use Peanut Butter M&M’s instead of plain chocolate.
Peanut Butter Cup S’Mores
Directions: Use a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup in place of your plain chocolate.
A new favorite recipe this time around included marshmallow cream, chopped up Oreos and Keebler Fudge graham cookies. Last winter we had a fire with friends in Las Vegas and I pre-made brownies to use instead of chocolate (Instagram photo).
Other fun recipes in the book are: Peanut Butter & Banana S’mores, Rice Krispie Bar S’mores and even Pumpkin Pie S’mores.
Oh! The possibilities! What’s your favorite way to eat a S’more?
