One trick ponies no more, s'mores are making appearances as pies, bars, and souped-up versions of their former selves.
No Campfire? No problem!
Yes, classic s'mores prepared over a campfire are, well, the best. But we don't always have an open flame handy, and sometimes we want them in the winter (not exactly camping season). No need to let that stop you! Try one of these ooey-gooey recipes for a s'more-like treat. No firewood or matches required.
If summer's in full swing and you’ve got your campfire going strong, then take advantage of the situation! Good old-fashioned s'mores it is:
Feeling adventurous? Try them with a little something extra like peanut butter, caramel, strawberries, bananas, or different candy bars. Here are a couple more ways to give your s'mores a kick:
S'more Campfire Safety Tips
- Be sure your campfire area is away from trees and low-hanging branches.
- Keep area well-contained with plenty of rocks surrounding the fire.
- Sweep away leaves and small branches at least 10 feet away from the campfire.
- When building the fire, use smaller pieces of burning materials in the center for kindling, with larger pieces of wood over and around kindling.
- Make sure skewers or sticks for marshmallows are long enough so little ones don't need to scoot too close to the fire to roast them.
- Have the kids sit while roasting--this ensures they won’t get too close to the fire, and there is less chance of tripping or falling if they are already stationary.
- Once the fire has died down, put it out by pouring water over it (beware of smoke and ash on the rise when you do this).
