Written by Anthony Tripodi


The best part of camping has nothing to do with being outside. Think back torepparttar last time you slept inrepparttar 143193 woods and you will agree with me. Take awayrepparttar 143194 mosquitoes,repparttar 143195 unexpected rainstorms and going torepparttar 143196 bathroom inrepparttar 143197 bushes and what's left? Not much you say? Well then you forgotrepparttar 143198 best part because nothing is more fun about camping than making s'mores. If you don't have time for camping anymore but melted chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers still sounds tempting, don't worry. We'll show you three ways to skiprepparttar 143199 great outdoors and cook up some s'mores inrepparttar 143200 comforts of your own home.

A great way to cook s'mores indoors is to userepparttar 143201 Casa Moda S'mores Maker. It's a lot like cooking smores outdoors. The S'mores Maker replacesrepparttar 143202 campfire with a sterno and instead of passing aroundrepparttar 143203 bag of marshmallows, there are neat places to stack all of your ingredients. The Casa Moda S'mores Maker is great for those of us who are trying to set a mood. There are people who don't mind their guests digging in a box of graham crackers or standing overrepparttar 143204 oven with a fork. But if you're trying to create a warm and cozy environment and have an enjoyable evening, thenrepparttar 143205 S'mores Maker is something to consider.

The second way to make s'mores indoors is alsorepparttar 143206 easiest. With a microwave and about 30 seconds you could dig right into a delicious plate of these chocolaty marshmallow graham treats. Withrepparttar 143207 same amount of time outside, you probably won't be digging into anything except maybe a hole inrepparttar 143208 ground to put your campfire. On a microwave safe dish, place a graham cracker, a piece of chocolate and a large marshmallow. Place another graham cracker onrepparttar 143209 dish to use asrepparttar 143210 top. The marshmallow will puff up while it's cooking so don't bother trying to make a sandwich at this point. Cook for 30-45 seconds. Wait a few seconds whilerepparttar 143211 marshmallow deflates, then placerepparttar 143212 second graham cracker on top like a sandwich. What could be easier than that?
