Every evening in the summer, the kids look forward to eating the one thing they love most… burnt marshmallows!

There’s nothing more satisfying than sandwiching that between a bar of Hershey’s chocolate and graham crackers. S’mores, was made for summer nights or any other night for that matter. While in Europe, finding marshmallows was quite easy so we made S’mores often. We were surprised that many Europeans never had a S’more so sharing the experience with other kids from neighboring campsites was a way to make friends and a great excuse to cuddle up near a fire on those cold Spring nights.
