Kitchen S’mores // VIDEO

You may honestly be wondering what in the world am I talking about when I say “Kitchen S’mores”. It basically involves a desperate girl in need of some s’mores but lacking some of the basic necessities like graham crackers and oh, yeah, a fire pit. A month has passed since our move and things have been a whirlwind of activity: visiting family, fixing up our basement, school supply shopping (*sob* my baby is going to be in Kindergarten!!) and of course, cooking. The one thing that we haven’t gotten around to doing is shopping for a new grill and fire pit. Budget and time has not allowed us to do those things quite yet, but I am not one to let that hold me back. Especially when it comes to enjoying my summer time s’mores.
Going on a pantry raid to find a little nibble of sweet is pretty routine around here. I honestly hardly ever buy cookies from the store and it has nothing to do with being a snob about store-bought cookies. The problem is, they last for about a split second around here. Desserts and sweets tend to last a bit longer when we have to put some effort into them.
And I always have marshmallows. Always.
I most of the time have some sort of cracker around, too. And with these two items, I’ve gotten very good at hobbling together a simple treat in the evening. After making countless kinds of random kitchen s’mores, I figured it was about time that I shared some of my favorite combinations here on JT. So here they are in all there glory:
Oh, remember how I mentioned that we don’t have a fire pit at our new house yet? Well, I *very carefully* toast my marshmallows over my gas stove burner. Works like a charm.
Don’t have a fire pit or a gas stove? Just melt them in the microwave for a few seconds or toast them under the broiler. Again, watch because the marshmallows can get away from you in a hurry.
This post is part of an ongoing partnership I have with Campfire® Marshmallows. They are hands-down my favorite marshmallows and I am having a ball spreading the word on how incredible these fluffy, sweet marshmallows are.
