Scrumptious Saturday #3 - The easy way out!

This is on request from one of my fellow Homefrontiers as I was planning on skipping out on the recipe today. Liz of Fray Baby Bibs and More asked me if I could do the S'mores which we were having out over a campfire in our back yard this evening. So without further ado...

S'mores The Roland Way!

First I've decided to show the pictures of Hubby and Maddie with the finished product, then I will go through the process of how to make S'mores for those who don't know.

Maddie's expression in these pictures is priceless, she finally gets her S'more in the end!

When I tell people I live in the country they might not fully comprehend how much so until seeing this picture of our back yard. Yes, we have a fire pit in our backyard and are able to have a camp fire to cook hot dogs and S'mores over. For those of you worried about the Fire Department our neighbor is a County Fire Fighter so no need to be concerned. However if you live in less than convenient circumstances to light a fire in your own back yard this can be done over a grill, gas stove or even electric eye stove (just don't let it drip - it'll be heck to clean up).

You'll need Graham Crackers, marshmallows and Hershey's Chocolate Bars (I used the Special Dark as we like those best)

When putting Marshmallow on skewer be sure to use a long one, metal preferable (if you have to use a wire coat hanger, but sure it's not painted). Keep the marshmallow out of direct flame, but be sure to heat it enough to make it a nice shade of tan on the outside as pictured below.

Put the 1/2 the Hershey Bar on 1/2 the Graham Cracker, put toasted marshmallow on top of Hershey Chocolate and top with other 1/2 of Graham Cracker as seen below.

Don't worry, that's chocolate on his hands not dirt!

And Enjoy!

I'd like to note that the new pink bows Maddie's wearing in these pictures are made by Emily of Ella Bear Bowtique. She does fabulous work with her bows!
