>Hey, how about some s’mores to go with yesterday’s campfire?
Wait until the fire burns down to coals. Then you are ready to make s’mores.
You will need marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers (or arrowroot cookies).
Place chocolate on one cookie. If you have a grate over the firepit, place the cookie there so the chocolate gets soft. Roast your marshmallow until it is warm and puffy. Place the marshmallow on top of the chocolate and add another cookie on top, making a sandwich. Watch out! They are hot and very messy! (And super-yummy!)
You don’t always need a campfire to make these yummy treats. Try this at-home microwave s’more method. Put a cookie or cracker on a plate and place chocolate on top. Place a marshmallow on top of the chocolate. Heat in the microwave for a few seconds until the marshmallow starts to get puffy. Take it out of the microwave and add another cracker or cookie on top. Push down lightly. Let it cool and enjoy.
Careful! They can be very hot.
Make this a family activity: everyone gather round and make a s’more!
This activity promotes patience–waiting for the marshmallow to roast can feel like forever. 🙂
