Camping and s’mores. They just go together. Who doesn’t have fond memories of enjoying delicious s’mores around the campfire?

sm-making-smoresFirst, here’s how you make your basic s’more (just in case you need a refresher):

* Collect graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate bars.

* Heat the marshmallows over the open flame of a campfire until it starts to brown and melt.

* Break your graham cracker in half so you have two pieces that will act as the top and bottom.

* Sandwich the chocolate pieces between the graham cracker and the heated marshmallow (be careful).

* Allow to cool for a bit and enjoy. Yum-o.
