Would you like S'more? - Cooking S'mores IndoorsWritten by Anthony Tripodi
The best part of camping has nothing to do with being outside. Think back to last time you slept in woods and you will agree with me. Take away mosquitoes, unexpected rainstorms and going to bathroom in bushes and what's left? Not much you say? Well then you forgot 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 skip great outdoors and cook up some s'mores in comforts of your own home.
A great way to cook s'mores indoors is to use Casa Moda S'mores Maker. It's a lot like cooking smores outdoors. The S'mores Maker replaces campfire with a sterno and instead of passing around 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 over oven with a fork. But if you're trying to create a warm and cozy environment and have an enjoyable evening, then S'mores Maker is something to consider.
The second way to make s'mores indoors is also easiest. With a microwave and about 30 seconds you could dig right into a delicious plate of these chocolaty marshmallow graham treats. With same amount of time outside, you probably won't be digging into anything except maybe a hole in 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 on dish to use as 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 while marshmallow deflates, then place second graham cracker on top like a sandwich. What could be easier than that?
