S'MORES AT HOME

Using the S'mores supplies in your camper kit,  

here are a few ways you can make s'mores at home

(ADULT SUPERVISION ADVISED)

 MICROWAVE:

  • On a plate add the graham cracker half, cover with a square of chocolate.

  • Top the graham crackers with a marshmallow.

  • Microwave for 15 seconds.

  • Top with graham cracker half and enjoy immediately.​

OVEN:

  • Preheat your oven to broil.

  • On a sheet pan add your graham cracker halves (leave an inch of space or so around the graham crackers as the marshmallows will expand).

  • Top with the square of chocolate & marshmallow

  • Place on a rack 5-6 inches below the top of the oven.

  • Leave the door open 3-4 inches so you can peek in.

  • Watch for 20-30 seconds for them to char and expand.

  • Remove from the oven, top with additional graham crackers and serve.​

STOVE:

  • On a plate add one graham cracker half, cover with a square of chocolate.

  • Using a skewer, turn you gas stove onto high heat and hold the marshmallows over the flame.

  • Let the marshmallow “catch” fire for a couple of seconds before blowing it out and turn off your stove.

  • Using the second graham cracker square, put the marshmallow over the chocolate, press the graham cracker over it while taking the skewer out.​

ALTERNATE IDEAS:

  • Use Oreos instead of graham crackers and make S’moreos 

  • Put a small spoonful of peanut butter under the chocolate for chocolate peanut butter S’mores.

  • If you want to make room temperature S’mores, you can make them ahead of time, let them cool or put them in the refrigerator, then dip them in chocolate!
