Transcript:How to Make Campfire S'moresHey guys - Jonathon Stewart here for About.com with today's 90 second quick tip. Whether you're heading for the great outdoors, or chillin at home by your fireplace, there's nothing that rocks quite as hard as making s'mores.
Campfire S'mores RecipeFor this recipe, you'll need graham crackers, marshmallows, chocolate, and a roaring fire. Okay, maybe "roaring" is overdoing it a little - let's settle for happily burning campfire. You'll also need a couple cooking skewers, or, if you're going old school, twigs. (Go old school.)
Prep the S'mores IngredientsStart by breaking your graham crackers and chocolate into regulation s'mores sized chunks - set these aside until your key ingredient is ready.
Roast the MarshmallowsNext, carefully skewer your marshmallow, and set it over your fire to cook slowly. Some aficionados claim that a lightly browned, tender marshmallow is ideal; others prefer a more well done approach. Don't worry if your marshmallow happens to fall in the fire - while they don't grow on trees, one or two gone to the wayside probably won't break the bank.
Assemble the S'moresFinally, take your perfectly roasted marshmallow and place it on top of the chocolate, and sandwich it between the two graham crackers. Allow the chocolate to melt just a bit, enjoy, and repeat.
Origins of S'moresAnd just where did the name of this wonderful camping snack come from? Huh. I'm not really sure, though an early recipe for these suckers can be found as far back as the 1920s in the Girl Scout Handbook. In any event, these things are so delicious, I'm gonna go get me s'more.
