S’moregasbord

IMG_0615

Okay, raise your hand if you’ve made s’mores before. By fire, not microwave. Well, before a few days ago, I hadn’t. I know. I can’t believe it either. I feel like I’m the only one who’s never made these campfire treats.

S’mores. Melty marshmallows and chocolate sandwiched between graham crackers. Mmmmmm.

They are extremely difficult to make so I thought I should document the process for you.

Okay, so that’s not true. I know you don’t need me to show you how to make s’mores, but since I blog about the things I make, I hope you’ll enjoy these marshmallowy photos.

You just need three things.

Four, actually. Fire comes in handy.

Five. Friends to share them with are good, too.

Skewers don’t hurt either.

Heat the marshmallows over a fire until the surface starts to get brown and the inside gets all melty.

It’s very scientific.

I like my marshmallows a bit on the burnt side.

Remove the ooey gooey goodness from the skewer …

… and sandwich in between two graham crackers. The heated marshmallow will start to melt your chocolate.

That is all. But, that isn’t enough.

Because, then you get to go again.

This one was warmed just enough without burning the edges. This photo makes me want another one pronto.

By the way, you might not be able to tell by the pictures, but these were mega marshmallows. Huge. Practically the size of the crackers.

I wish I could remember the name of them for you. But I can’t. Forgive me for teasing you.

Be glad it’s dark if you decide to use gigantic marshmallows. Let’s just say I would have made a good photo for a new “Got Marshmallow” campaign.

So here’s the fun part. Well, the more fun part. We made s’mores with a few kinds of chocolate.

Hershey’s, Reese’s and Caramello candy to name a few.

We made a little s’moregasbord of chocolate and peanut butter and caramel… oh my!

And I have to tell you the Caramello candy bars ended up being my favorite.

Yep. this one. I think I will dream about you tonight.

Hope you enjoyed the pics.

Please tell me a that few of you have never made these either. Anyone?

Or if you’re a pro at them, do you have any suggestions for s’more kinds of combos? I’m thinking nutella would be delish.
