Who loves a good campfire? I just love sitting around the flames with friends, telling ghost stories, and eating s’mores!
Those irresistible treats full of RICH chocolate, that perfectly toasted GOOEY marshmallow, sandwiched between CINNAMON-Y graham crackers.
Boy, do I LOVE THEM!
The best part is the marshmallow. How do you like yours?
Me? The more charred the better. My marshmallow is always the last to come off the fire, usually falling off the skewer because it is so MELTY.
What if you don’t have a campfire? Or want to go through the trouble of making one? Or don’t want all that mess?
