If you had any kind of outdoorsy childhood. It likely included a camp fire or two. They no doubt came with at least one batch of S'mores.
The law of averages says at least one or more of you has burnt the roof of your mouth on flaming hot melted molten marshmallow insides, that slid out of the perfectly
browned and crusty outer layer that somehow managed to stay stuck to the stick.
This is not a sing Kumbaya and hold hands kind of happy
felling at all! Avoid it at all costs!
If you can , but don't give up S'mores. Never give up on S'mores.
There is not enough happy in the world and S'mores are happy. They are the kind of happy that you remember for ever.
The played so hard the water from the hose was sweet and mud between your toes was the best it got in summer foot wear.
First strike at bowling happy.
First fish on the line happy.
Maybe not first kiss happy but up there with it.
You see where I'm coming from now don't you.
This kind of happy should not be marred by the fact the roof of your mouth is melting in to shreds of raw flesh that will surly catch fire any minute and send plumes
of smoke rolling out your nose so dense that the fire department will have to be called.
That is why I made these for my grand-kids...
There are many recipes and I do not know who came up with it first.... It has many names.....
The items you can put in it goes on for a bit too.
You can do a build your own S'mores in a cone kind of bar set up if you like.
I keep it simple, and make ahead of time to put on the grill after dinner.
(They don't get mushy,mushy is not fun.)
Here is the assembly in a nut shell.
I mix it all together at room temp.
Start to wrap the foil around the cone.
Then I fill with my mix.
Finish wrapping and twist the ends.
Now set them aside till later.
After dinner place on the grill or next to the fire for 2 to 5 min. The time will depend on how hot your fire is.
I can not guarantee no one will burn their mouth on this but it's not happened at our house yet.
Waiting on a bonfire is one of the hardest things for little boys.
We play a game called krazzy Kick ball ... long story short .... you can use your squirt gun to put soda or Kool-aid in someones moth you don't have to be out.
Happy Grand children left my house clutching the extra cones I did not roast on the grill. I sent home instructions with their mom on how to bake them in the oven ... and orders
for grand kids not to put them in the microwave.
Your can wrap in wax paper and nuke in the microwave for about 4 sec. on rainy days. Or make as above and bake in a 350° oven for about 5 minutes or as long as
it takes your oven to heat up to 350° which ever comes first.
is it dark yet?
