S'more Fun at the Cottage: How to Make the Perfect S'mores

Updated: Mar 20, 2023

Making s'mores is a simple and enjoyable pastime that the whole family can enjoy. S'mores are a traditional dessert that many people love at the cottage. S'mores making instructions for the cottage are provided below.

Gather materials: To make s'mores, you will need graham crackers, chocolate bars, and marshmallows. You can also use other types of chocolate or add additional ingredients like nuts, peanut butter or Nutella, as per your preference.

  1. Start a fire: In order to make s'mores, you'll need to have a fire going. The best type of fire for roasting marshmallows is a campfire. If you don't have a campfire, you can use a fire pit, a fireplace or a fire bowl, to make smores.

  2. Preparing the marshmallows: Spear a marshmallow on a stick, or use roasting forks, if available. Hold the marshmallow over the fire, keeping it at a safe distance from the flames, and rotate it gently until it is golden brown and gooey on the inside.

  3. Assemble the s'mores: Once the marshmallow is perfectly toasted, take two graham cracker squares and place a piece of chocolate on one of them. Place the toasted marshmallow on top of the chocolate. Take the other graham cracker square and press it gently on top of the marshmallow, forming a sandwich.

  4. Enjoy: Carefully hold the s'more sandwich and take a bite, enjoy the warmth of the fire and the gooey, melty goodness of the s'more.

S'mores are a great way to enjoy the campfire, and making them is a fun activity for the whole family. You can experiment with different types of chocolate and other ingredients to make your s'mores truly unique. Always be safe and mindful when roasting marshmallows and around fire, and don't hesitate to ask for help if needed. Happy camping!
