DIY S’mores Bar: Stovetop Style
It’s the beginning of August, and I have s’mores on my mind. Two things in particular:
- News alert: You don’t have to wait for a campfire to make s’mores
- S’mores can be more than just marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate bars
S’mores can be made year-round (on the stovetop) and they can be decked up in all sorts of ways (see below for a bunch of ideas).
A Build-Your Own S’mores Bar
Why not make a DIY s’mores bar for your next get-together? Whether you’re planning a baby shower, bridal shower, wedding, or other celebration, your guests will undoubtedly love creating their own dessert.
A DIY s’mores bar is an extremely easy dessert option with minimal prep time. Simply lay out all of your toppings and let guests build their own s’mores.
Pedicures and S’mores: The Perfect Girl’s Night
The other night, I got together with some friends for pedicures, pizza, wine. and an unanticipated dessert. It was the perfect summer evening. Here are our pedicured feet:
After dinner, the host (my friend Ellen) asked if anyone wanted s’mores. We shouted out a collective “yes”, but scratched our heads wondering how she would toast marshmallows without a flame.
Well, we learned something awesome that night: You don’t have to have a campfire to make s’mores. Just a gas stove. Indoor s’mores. Brilliant idea. Thanks Ellen!
DIY S'mores Bar
Practice safe indoor s'mores making: To make stovetop s'mores, you'll need a fork, metal chopstick, or other non-flammable object to put a marshmallow on. The technique isn't much different than traditional campfire s'mores making. Just be extra careful because you're inside. Beware of oozy melting marshmallow, and have a bucket of water on hand just in case.
Hershey's chocolate bars
White chocolate bars
Peanut butter cups
Mini chocolate chips
Sea salt flakes
Place toppings on a tray or serving table. Be sure to have small spreading knives available if you are including peanut butter, almond butter, or Nutella. Prepare s'mores as usual.
