Growing up, going on a camping trip was basically synonymous with roasting marshmallows over the campfire, building the perfect s’more and enjoying the gooey goodness. Then you’d lather, rinse, repeat until all the ingredients were eaten up or we’d stuffed ourselves silly. But now that I’m a grown up, I’ve realized I don’t have to be on a camping trip to enjoy this DIY treat — I can easily make one from the comfort of my backyard.
And of course, now that I’m making s’mores on my own terms, I want to improve upon the process and make it easier at the same time. While the humble s’more has three basic ingredients — graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate — there are a number of supplies that make perfecting the s’more quick and easy. For starters, Stuffed Puffs® Chocolate Filled Marshmallows filled with Real Milk Chocolate streamlined the whole game. Instead of three ingredients, you only need two, and you’ll never have to worry about running out of chocolate or marshmallows. Once you’ve got your main ingredients, feel free to improvise and level-up your s’more with some additional, surprising ingredients that will surprise and delight your tastebuds (seriously — we included bacon on this list, you’re going to want to check it out).
When it comes to backyard s’mores, you’ll also need some basic supplies. After all, what’s a s’more without a fire to roast it over? That’s where the fire pit and roasting stick (or the s’more maker cage, if you’re really sophisticated) come into play. Keep reading for all the things you need to make the perfect s’more.
