Who doesn’t like Smores? These simple tasty treats are as common as smoke around a campfire. The traditional Smore means a graham cracker, a marshmallow, a piece of Hershey’s chocolate and a little prep. You toast the marshmallow over the campfire first.

 Take care not to flame on and burn the mallow. Remember that sharp sticks or forks with melting, potentially flaming, marshmallows need some safety overseeing. Whether with kids or goofy adults, you do not want this to end badly. Anyway, once the mallow is golden brown and toasted perfectly, place it on a graham cracker stacked with the chocolate bar. Use the top cracker to pull the soft mallow onto the sandwich. You have now made a basic Smore.

If campfires are banned , due to the fire danger, use the grill, or propane campfires as an alternative.

The greatest thing about Smores is that the sky is the limit. You can change up the ingredients in so many ways. Try using big cookies instead of graham crackers. Maybe an Ice cream cone or a banana. Make your own special variation.

Recently I saw a new marshmallow product. PUFFS!!! These marshmallows come pre-stuffed with chocolate. They are a tad pricey, but you would not need to buy the Hershey Bars. I have not field tested them yet but, what a great idea.

Remember to that Marshmallows also come in flavors, sizes, and shapes. You can get HUGE mallows, flat mallows, Strawberry mallows. or coconut covered mallows. I wonder if the first native peoples that used the Marsh Mallow flowers, to make a sweet treat, could have ever imagined Smores!

Smore please!
