This last week, we got together with Alan’s family and headed up to their cabin in Idaho (which is why I haven’t been able to post for a week, but don’t worry, I’m back!). We did some great activities which included, swimming, hiking, competitions, games, lots of eating, and of course cooked some delicious hot “smoes” (as Buzz Lightyear would call them – I watched that movie this weekend with my 3 year old niece).
We put some coals in a little pan and toasted marshmallows and starbursts. There are so many different ways to make s’mores! It’s just not summer without them! We even cook them in our apartment over the stove since we don’t have a fire pit. 🙂
Here are some of my favorite ways to make s’mores:
1. Traditional – which will now be explained by Ham from Sandlot.
Ham Porter:Hey, Smalls, you wanna s’more?
Smalls: Some more of what?
Ham Porter: No, do you wanna s’more?
Smalls: I haven’t had anything yet, so how can I have some more of nothing?
Ham Porter: You’re killing me Smalls! These are s’more’s stuff! Alrite now pay attention. First you take the graham, you stick the chocolate on the graham. Then you roast the ‘mallow. When the ‘mallows flaming… you stick it on the chocolate. Then cover with the other end. Then you scarf. Kind of messy, but good!
2. With the chocolate replaced with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
3. With the graham cracker replaced with Keebler Fudge Striped Cookies.
4. With the chocolate cooked in the marshmallow (no graham crackers necessary).
