How to make the best s'mores ever!

By: Canadian Living
Summer in Canada usually means camping (at least it does for me) and so I spent part of last week camping in Algonquin Park in Ontario. It was my 4-year old son's first time camping and he loved it. As we packed up (in the rain) on our last day, he was crying and saying he wanted to camp forever! One part of camping my son enjoyed the most was roasting "smarshmallows" and eating s'mores - the classic campfire treat. I have mixed feelings about s'mores - I am not a huge fan of graham crackers (they can be really dry) and sometimes the chocolate is not fully melted - but the toasted, gooey marshmallow gets me everytime! My brother taught me this great trick for the perfect s'mores - it changed my mind about s'mores, and I ate way too many of them! making s'mores At our camp site, we were lucky enough to have a fire pit with a small grate on one side. He put a folded piece of heavy-duty tin foil on the grate, and placed the 2 graham crackers, one with 2 squares of chocolate on it, on the foil to warm and melt the chocolate. a perfectly roasted marshmallow Once you have expertly toasted the perfect marshmallow, sandwich it between the warmed graham crackers. assembling the perfect s'more By warming the graham crackers and chocolate, the marshmallow stays warm, the chocolate oozes and you have the perfect campfire treat. a perfect s'more Just try eating only one...I dare you!
