Late spring and early summer are the best out here. The BEST!
Our house sits on a few acres of land, peppered with really tall black walnut trees. At dusk, the fireflies come out in droves, lighting up the grassy slope beyond our backyard, flashing their glowing lights in-between the lengthy trunks.
It becomes the perfect setting for a campfire and a summer party. With good friends. And yummy S’mores!
The thing is though, making a ton of S’mores for a summer party can be tricky, especially when you’re outside and it’s dark.
I’ve found an alternative way to make ooey-gooey S’mores on the campfire, with minimal mess, in under 10 minutes.
Easy 10 Minute S’mores
First up, I grab aluminum foil and cut it into rectangular strips, about 6″ wide. Then I lay out all the S’mores ingredients, which include graham squares, milk chocolate, and large S’moreMallows (whaaaaat?!).
Then I create S’mores foil PACKETS, assembly-line style: strip of foil, graham square, marshmallow, chocolate, graham square.
Each gets wrapped up tight in an its own S’mores foil packet.
At this point, you can set the S’mores packets aside until your guests arrive, or until the campfire gets crankin’. (Or both.) It’s a quick, easy solution for summertime: weeknight meals, get-togethers, BBQs, a summer party. You name it.
When you and the campfire are ready, toss the packets directly on the fire, or set the packets in cast iron skillets and then place those on the fire. This is what I do.
Five minutes in a really hot campfire is all it takes to produce amazingly delicious individual S’mores packets, perfectly proportioned for your guests. Who doesn’t love individual packets of anything…especially dessert, right??
That being said, you don’t always need a campfire for S’mores! If the weather’s bad, or you’re just feeling lazy, simply put the S’mores packets into a preheated 400°F oven for 5 minutes. DONE.
For all the S’mores makings, including the Honey Maid Graham Cracker Squares, Hershey’s Milk Chocolate bars, and Kraft’s Jet Puffed Marshmallows, check your local Walmart for a display like this one – everything was placed together, and finding what I needed was a breeze! Let’s make S’mores tonight (any day can be a S’mores Day)!
I’ve shared how we create fun, tasty, and memorable experiences with S’mores. I’d love to hear your favorite way to make and enjoy S’mores!
