Nothing quite tastes like summer as much as s'mores!
As one of the most defining flavors and experiences of summer, Hershey's Milk Chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers have brought families together for decades! While we love these fun s'mores recipes, we also like the classic 3-step recipe.
Not going camping this summer? No problem! There is no camping required for our tabletop s'mores bar.
Tabletop S'mores Bar
Our tabletop s'mores bar is perfect for patios or even indoors. My 6 year old loved it!
The set up is simple to do. Display your graham crackers, marshmallows and Hershey's Milk Chocolate on a pretty platter. I wanted my s'mores bar to have a rustic feel (even though we weren't camping) so I picked up a tree stump cake plate to display all the fixin's for our s'mores.
Setting a S'mores Family Table
I finished off the table with a bunch of wildflowers for some extra color and to bring even more outdoors to our tabletop smores bar.
I know you're wondering how we toasted our marshmallows. Don't worry, that was simple too. Since we weren't camping I created a "mini campfire" using river rocks, clay pots and a sterno can. I displayed bamboo kebab skewers in a mason jar that we used to toast our marshmallows over our mini campfire.
Skip the Crowds and Take Your Family Skiing in Waterville Valley
After a sizable snow storm over Martin Luther King weekend, there were plenty of lift lines and skiers heading to Vermont. Amazingly, most of them drove right past an awesome resort. I'm encouraging families to skip the crowds on the next winter holiday and take a family ski trip ...read more
Keeping your New Year's resolutions
The New Year is off to a fresh start, and many of us are committed to doing something or many things with more intention this year. But it's tough to stay on track. In fact, “Quitters Day”, which falls on January 14th this year, is the day when most people give up. How can you ...read more

Toasting S'Mores to Perfection
At first our marshmallows got a little crispy if we weren't really careful. Turning the marshmallows slowly a few inches above the "mini campfire" gave us the best, slightly toasted results. Don't rush it unless you like slightly burnt marshmallows (I don't mind that).
Either way your marshmallow will be all warm and gooey and just right to smoosh between 2 graham crackers and warm and toasty enough to melt your Hershey's Milk Chocolate.
It was such ooey, gooey goodness! Mmm, s'mores!
Kids simply love making these tabletop s'mores and it was so simple to put together. A perfect summertime dessert even if you aren't camping.
And as if you needed a reason to make s'mores, National S'mores Day is August 10th.
