Backyard S’mores

Toasting marshmallows over a large bonfire is one of my favorite fall activities. Unfortunately, starting a bonfire in my backyard would be dangerous, so instead I put together a table top roaster so we can enjoy toasted marshmallows all fall!

I started with selection of  fresh graham crackers, campfire marshmallows and assorted chocolate bars. I selected a Sea Salt Bar from Videri, a classic Reese Peanut Butter Cup, Chocolove Orange Peel in Dark Chocolate, World Market Strawberries and Champagne, and Chuao Spicy Maya Bar. We had a great time tasting all of the chocolate bars.

S'mores and beerTo compliment the s’mores, I picked up 21st Amendment’s Marooned on Hog Island oyster stout. A rich and creamy stout is the perfect addition to a chilly fall evening.

Are you planning to make s’mores this fall? What are your favorite fall evening activities?

    1. You should! My favorite was the orange peel in dark chocolate, but they are all so tasty. Be sure to let me know what you try.
