Get started on this frozen treat a day before you want to serve it because you'll need time for the ice cream mixture to set. If you're a fan of the classic chocolate, marshmallow, and graham cracker combination, you will love this dessert. When I served them at a recent party, they got rave reviews! They would be the perfect finish to a Fourth of July barbecue, so check out the recipe now.
We love our s'mores, but we *really* love them with Reese's peanut butter cups! We melted them onto the graham crackers by sitting them to the side of the fire while we toasted our marshmallows to perfection. So tasty!
One thing I love about camping and backpacking is that you stay very active, from pitching tents to building fires to hiking. So I don't have to feel guilty about enjoying a few s'mores.Of course, lounging around the campfire isn't going to burn off those calories, but a few good old-fashioned camping activities will. Take my quiz to find out how much you have to work to feel better about those choco-marshmallow treats. (All calorie calculations are based on a 130-pound woman.) Take the Quiz
Winter weather is approaching and when you find yourself rained or snowed in with the kids, make the most of it. A friend of mine came up with an ingenious way to enjoy s'mores and all their deliciousness without a campfire, barbecue or even a fire place.
All you need is a pack of graham crackers, a bag of marshmallows, some chocolate squares, a few water soaked skewers, and a tea light. The soft flame of the small votive candle is a controlled heat that makes warming the marshmallows much safer when small hands are involved. Best of all, it takes just a few minutes to make the gooey treats so you have more time to enjoy them with your lil ones.
