  • Gather all of your s’more supplies before heading out to the bonfire. 
  • Arrange a variety of the above ingredients onto a large platter. Think charcuterie–only in this case it’s the building blocks of s’mores. The above are only suggestions; feel free to experiment.
  • Start by selecting your preferred base, chocolate and topping. Then, roast a marshmallow (or two) over an open flame to your liking. Sandwich the chocolate, topping and hot marshmallow between the selected base. Squeeze gently to melt the chocolate. Enjoy!
