The kids wanted to make S’mores. We bought all the ingredients a few days ago and promptly ate them ’round the hob. You typically do this sort of food around a campfire. Lucy insisted that we do this properly. So back to the shops to buy some more ingredients. Everything is easy to find except the Graham Crackers. The closest I could get was ” petite beurre ” cookies.
Z demonstrates the final product.
For those who aren’t familiar with The S’more here’s a quick how-to. The ” S’more ” is short for ” that is so fantastic! I want some more! ” or Brent’s version, ” what a complete waste of chocolate and marshmallows. ”
Build a small campfire.
Toast your marshmallow over the campfire. Everyone has their own style. Kids usually flame their marshmallow just because they can. I’m more of a crusty on the outside, gooey on the inside kinda girl.
Minty demonstrates the layering. One cracker, two squares of chocolate and one hot marshmallow.
Squidge the marshmallow into the chocolate with the other cracker.
Fingers can get sticky in the process. Clean up and tuck in.
When the sugar rush hits your brain, you begin to slur and yell out ” That was fantastic! I want s’more! ”
When all the ingredients have run out and there is no more s’more, pout on a hay bale.
It’s okay girl, I know. Oh, I know.
