National S’mores Day!

6 1
It’s National S’mores Day! S’mores are one of my favorite desserts. The chocolate, the gooey marshmallows, the yummy crunch….what’s not to like?  The great thing about s’mores is that they made be made indoors or out.  S’mores are popular in a crowd and make excellent party favors.  A kit may be easily crafted and handed out to guests as a party treat or an extra special take home present.  Happy National S’mores Day y’all!! 
There are many, many ways to package a s’more kit.  If your party, wedding, or special event has a specific theme – use it!  Small favor boxes, theme bags, or novelty containers make clever packages for s’more kits.  You can be as creative as you like from specialty printed packaging with printed tags to simple bags for single serve s’mores.  


The basics for the kit are in the photo below.  
Graham Crackers or Any Cookie Type
Hershey’s Chocolate Bar
Junior Mints
Maybe Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares

How To:

Make your kits with enough ingredients for two s’mores per kit.  Break the graham cracker sheets in half and stack four halves. 

Next pull the marshmallows into two pieces.  You may choose to use the marshmallows that are flat and specially made for s’mores.  I place one Junior Mint on one half of each marshmallow.

Close the marshmallow with the Junior Mint in the center and stick the skewer through it – like a candy kabob.  Use two marshmallows per skewer.  Once the marshmallow is roasted, there is chocolatey mint goodness in each s’more bite!

Unwrap the Hershey’s bars.  It is also delicious to use Ghirardelli chocolate pieces in mint, peppermint bark, or chocolate caramel pieces for a gourmet take on the traditional s’more.

Stack the graham crackers on the bottom, then the chocolate into whatever packaging you choose to use.  Place two marshmallow skewers in each package.  Cross the skewers and tie the bag close at the point where the skewers cross.  This creates stability for the bag.  Use a twist tie so if you only eat once s’more, the bag may be closed easily and the other s’more eaten later.

In the s’more kit, I like to place one skewer with Junior Mints and one without for variety.  Enjoy your s’mores with friends and family!
