As soon as the weather warms up, camping becomes a serious topic of conversation in our house. We spend time looking at our summer calendar and planning out how many weekends we can devote to camping. Whether it’s in our very own back yard or at a camp ground, the experience of being together, sleeping in a tent and cooking around the campfire is something that we all look forward to. It’s pure family time, and frankly, a ton of fun.

When we camp, flashlights and glow sticks are a must at night. I’m not sure what the kiddos would do if they didn’t get to have their nighttime rave around the tent. Dinner over the campfire usually consists of hot dogs, baked beans and corn before moving on to the campfire popcorn. If you’ve never made campfire popcorn, you’re missing out. It’s smokey, salty and just plain delicious.

But not more delicious than s’mores.

Last fall, I shared the Buddy’s camping themed 6th birthday party where we served up a huge spread of s’mores makings. A variety of chocolate bars and marshmallows to build your very own, personalized s’mores. That was quite possibly the most fun party that we’ve ever thrown. Simple food and s’mores.

Can it get any better than that?

This past weekend, we uncovered our fire pit after our long brutal winter and made our very s’mores of the season. To make the occasion even more special, I whipped up a batch of sweet, roasted berries to drizzle over the toasted marshmallows. And not just any marshmallows – Campfire® Marshmallows Giant Roasters.

Roasted Berry S'mores by Jelly ToastHave you seen these Giant Roasters? They’re enormous – both in size and in flavor! Breaking these out during our camping trips and backyard adventures always brings the huge smiles (not to mention sticky cheeks) to the kiddos’ faces.

These Roasted Berry S’mores were a hit with the whole family. Sweet, crunchy waffle cookies, a chunk of milk chocolate and a perfectly toasted Giant Roaster marshmallow. All of that drizzled with the slightly spiced berries made for some seriously epic s’mores. The addition of the juicy, roasted berry sauce with vanilla and cardamom is unexpected, but oh so amazing. It makes me want to roast all the fruits just for the purpose of spooning them over warm and melty Giant Roasters.

Is that wrong?

  1. When my friends and I went camping the other weekend, we did the ol’ cruise the campground and check out what everyone else is cooking bit. One site had those ginormous marshmallows and we were soooo jealous that all we had were the normal size.

    These s’mores look amazing! Roasted berries?!!! Genius! I love that you all are doing a s’mores chat! How fun and clever.

    • Totally look for these, Julia! You’ll love them. I hope you can stop by the chat! I would love to hear about your favorite s’mores recipes :)

  2. First of all, those mallows are Ridiculous!! Humongous!

    Second, I love the mixed berry compote over the marshmallows. I bet that sweet-tart fruitiness plays nicely with all the sweet-sticky mallow and milk chocolate.

    Third, it must be fate. Someone literally just asked me today if I could make a S’mores ice cream for an upcoming Ice Cream Tuesday. I said yes but that I would probably not go with a straight-up traditional version because: boring. So, I am going to turn your S’mores creation into ice cream, if that’s okay with you. Of course I’ll link here as the inspiration. What do you think?

    • Right?!! The berry/marshmallow/chocolate/waffle cookie combo just plain works, I’m telling ya! I am waiting on the edge of my seat for your ice cream version. When I saw you doing a roasted berry one the other day (the same day I made my roasted berry sauce) it all made sense why we’re friends! We’re definitely on the same wave length ;-)

  3. I love that you’re making camping a part of your family tradition. We camped a lot growing up and I have such fond memories of gathering around the campfire. I love that these marshmallows are giant! I always want more marshmallow to chocolate ratio so these would be perfect!

    • You would love these, Courtney! There are seriously 4x bigger than regular marshmallows. But if they’re wrong, I don’t want to be right ;-)

  6. I’m so excited it’s finally summer, if only because it’s the best excuse to immediately get to making these smores. Winter will make it’s unwelcome return before long.

  16. They are seriously the biggest marshmallows I have ever seen. Ever. EVER! We don’t really do much campfire marshmallow roasting here in Australia (it’s only just really catching on in my circle of friends) but I can imagine how much fun those giant marshmallows would be to eat. I absolutely love the look of these s’mores sandwiches. The roasted berries with cardamom would add such an amazing dimension to the chocolate and marshmallow sandwich. Yum! Trying these asap xx
