August 30: Toasted Marshmallow Day

image from whatscookingamerica.net

Well, what else do you do for Toasted Marshmallow Day?


S’mores

Materials:

  • Graham crackers
  • Large marshmallows
  • Chocolate bars
  • Sandwich cookies
  • Mint cookies
  • Miniature marshmallows
  • Chocolate chips
  • Foil

Directions:

  1. The most common s’more is the classic combination of a marshmallow roasted over a campfire and then sandwiched between two graham crackers and a slice of chocolate. However, consider these alternatives as well:
  2. Instead of graham crackers and a chocolate bar, put marshmallow between two sides of a sandwich cookie.
  3. For another interesting flavor, try putting the marshmallow on a mint cookie.
  4. Make mini-s’mores with miniature marshmallows, chocolate chips, and broken pieces of graham cracker. Wrap everything in foil and set on campfire coals - but not long!
  5. Finally, brainstorm how you can make s’mores indoors. Can you make them in a microwave or on the stove? Can you make them with candles?
