Enjoyed any s'mores lately? Outdoor fun and backyard fire pits have been popular in the past months and so have their classic sweet snack. Here are some new s'mores recipes for this campfire classic.
Graham crackers, marshmallows and a chocolate bar. Untwist some hangers from the dry cleaner into skewers and tada! Your family has dessert and an evening event. Or a middle of the afternoon backyard party. Or simply a great idea for when everyone is cranky.
While roasting marshmallows until they're gooey is the perfect summer ritual, what you do with those marshmallows, sometimes could use a new, crazy idea. Here are some favorite new ways to break a s'mores rut and make sugary memories
Okay. This. Dig that box of cake cones out of the pantry - you know you have it. Fill each cone with about a 1/2 cup chocolate chips then a handful of mini marshmallows. Then repeat layering until cones are filled. Wrap each cone tightly in foil. Roast in campfire 3-5 minutes until chocolate and marshmallows are melted. Unwrap, serve, and be everyone's hero.
This delicious twist simply replaces the graham crackers with Granny Smith apple, thinly sliced. Toast marshmallows. Top one apple slice with one Hershey bar square, then two marshmallows, then drizzle with caramel sauce and add the other apple slice. Incredible. And the kids are eating fruit!
While the campfire here is optional, people going crazy for this is not. Take 24 graham cracker squares. Cover twelve with roasted marshmallow, or marshmallow creme or fluff ( yes what we used to eat on sandwiches.) Spread chocolate frosting on the other twelve squares.
Open a full container of ice cream and cut the cardboard off the block. Then cut the ice cream in three rows long-ways, then into squares vertically. Place squares of ice cream between the two graham cracker halves and freeze for four hours. Then get them to do all the chores because they are so impressed with your skill and genius.
I include this gem because if you slept the night in a tent, you need a breakfast that wins and people can make themselves. If you slept the night in your normal bed, sometimes you just need a treat to help you face the day.
Frozen mini waffles aren't always available in which case you can cut regular Eggo's in quarters ( and teach the kids math!) Bake waffles on a non-stick cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 5 minutes. Place milk chocolate and marshmallows between two waffles and brush Eggo's with cinnamon and butter. Return to oven for 2-3 more minutes.
Eggos make for great indoor s'mores. But this is all possible over the campfire as well. And in that case, Bless you. You deserve this as you scratch your mosquito bites.
I have a child who always chooses the milkshake. Every ice cream store, no matter the flavor, or toppings available, she goes with the shake. This s'mores dessert recipe is for that child and everyone else who feels like drinking their campfire vibes through a straw.
For the kids who will always choose to drink their dessert from a straw!

Add 10 toasted marshmallows and blend until smooth.

Here are 10 more slight variations on fireside s'mores. Remember, in life, Nutella, pretzels, Reese's peanut butter cups, and the chocolate chip cookie can only help.
Also, don't forget the Pumpkin Pie S'more next time you are around the holiday get-together fire pit. Or the s'mores dip to bring to a potluck cookout.
No one can argue with the delicious combo of ooey-gooey marshmallow, chocolate, and waiting for a treat. Pinterest could dedicate itself fully to the s'mores theme and only gain followers.
Time around the fire can't be beat. Neither can time in the kitchen waiting for the oven timer to ding! Enjoy getting creative and crazy with your s'mores throughout the year.
