One of my favorite summertime activities is sitting around the fire pit enjoying some good drinks, good conversation, and campfire treats. I must say that I have some pretty strong opinions about the proper roasting of a marshmallow. And if you are roasting ‘mallows then most likely you are also fixing to put together some s’mores. Here is a Trail Family guide delightful s’mores smorgasbord.
The classic: graham cracker, perfectly toasted marshmallow, Hershey’s milk chocolate. The endurance of the classic construction shows that it still has wide appeal. If you have a fire pit with a ledge or rim, put the crackers and chocolate there while toasting your ‘mallow. It melts the chocolate a little.
The PB upgrade: graham cracker, perfect ‘mallow, Reese’s peanut butter cup. This variation has been around for a long time. Whoever thought of it first, blessings upon your head. This is a delicious twist on the classic. If you love chocolate and peanut butter together this takes the s’more to the next level.
Choco-mint: I personally am rather partial to the chocolate mint combination. The best way to add a hint of mint into your campfire treat is to use two or three Andes candies instead of the classic Hershey’s. If you are a chocolate mint lover like me, trust me on this one. I’ve considered using a York Peppermint Patty but haven’t tried it yet. If you try this one be sure to tell me how it is over at trailfamily.blog!
S’more Easter Fun: This is another combination that I have not personally tried so eat at your own risk. I’ve seen on social media others who have used Peeps or other peep shapes instead of the classic marshmallow. If you are in the mood for some sugar shock, this sounds like it will do the trick. The kids will probably love it!
As summer gets in full swing, my kiddos look forward to tons of outdoor time and staying up later than during the school year. It’s likely the same at your house. We hope you all enjoy many great campfires, time with friends, outside activities, and of course lots of s’mores.
