S’mores Are a Delicious Dessert Treat Easily Made Over Campfire

     “Over the years, answering the phone for the Shaver Lake Visitor’s Bureau has raised some interesting questions,” said volunteer Debora Delaney. “One of the more off the wall questions is ‘where do I get s’mores.’”
     Well we have the answer for you. You don’t really get them anywhere. They are special. You have to make them.
     The making of a s’more is very educational. You can teach the kids some valuable camping skills. But, first you need ingredients: a box of
graham crackers, a bag of regular sized marshmallows, some Hershey Bars and a long roasting tool.
     Part of the excitement in creating s’mores is cooking them over a campfire. So first you have to start one. Show the kids how to make a safe campfire in a provided fire ring. Next you pile different sized sticks and dry pine needles into a tee-pee shape.
     Then have the kids light the pile under adult supervision. Toast the marshmallows to a “crispy, gooey state.” Put the marshmallow on top of a chocolate bar and place that in between two graham crackers. Yummy!
     Nobody agrees on where s’mores came from, but seriously, would anybody over eight years-old ever think of squishing together a chocolate bar, a toasted marshmallow, and a pair of graham crackers to make a dessert?
     So now you know you can’t just buy a good gooey “s’more” at your local grocery store!  However, it is a wonderful experience for a kid.
