You may or may not know that I craved s'mores during my pregnancy, particularly 3rd trimester. I think I may have eaten one every day after school.
I ate so many that my sweet husband bought one of these for me. :)
It actually works surprisingly well and the compartment for water creates steam that helps eliminate the rubbery-ness that microwaved marshmallows can develop. Wow, is it crazy that I have this much knowledge of microwaved s'mores?
well nothing really beats the real thing over an open fire.
While we were visiting Adrian's family in Pittsburgh, one Sunday night we went out to the lake to take a swim and then have a cook-out. My father-in-law found these amazingly large marshmallows!
Look at it in relation to the graham cracker! Those suckers were huge!
The chocolate is already melty because we left the Hershey bars in the car a little too long. :) My mother-in-law kindly scraped them out of the wrappers and spread them onto graham crackers for us.
Have you ever been with someone for their very first ever s'mores experience? Adrian's cousin from England was visiting and we were able to introduce him to the American wonder that is s'mores!
Later in the week my mother-in-law had the brilliant idea to try nutella s'mores! Oh yum!
Do you like s'mores? What is your favorite s'more memory or occasion?
p.s. I keep seeing those strawberry flavored marshmallows at Target and wondering if they'd make a good s'more. What do you think?
Oh and check this out from one of my favorite blogs: a whole post about s'more goodness!
