No summer is complete without backyard barbecues, camping trips, and of course, s’mores. Loved by parents and children alike, this yummy DIY dessert is not just a menu course, but a great activity. Over the years, people have developed innovative marshmallow roasters to minimize burn potential and give us a much better alternative to a long stick.
We even have the fire fishing pole right here that adds a whole new dimension of fun to roasting sugary goodness over an open flame! “When you JIG it, it FLIPS it!” Any family that camps often will love how easy these are to use and will find that they are not just perfect for marshmallows, but also for hot dogs, shrimp, and anything you can skewer.
Want something different than the classic graham cracker, chocolate bar, and marshmallow combination? Try these ideas:
- Use a different type of candy, like peanut butter cups, rice crispy bars, or caramel bars
- Jazz up the basics with sprinkles or nuts
- Add fruit, particularly strawberries or bananas between the marshmallow and chocolate layers
- Use a hazelnut spread or peanut butter instead of candy (Note: this is a great addition for indoor s’mores!)
Have fun, be safe, and get creative on your next camping excursion or backyard adventure!
