Who says s'mores are a campfire treat you can enjoy only in the Summer? Why not bring them indoors to have them year-round? For our annual ugly sweater party last weekend, I put together a s'more's bar to bring some warmth and fire to the table and some yummy marshmallow goodness to all our bellies. It was the perfect warm snack for a cold winter night, and especially festive with the twinkle lights to accompany--yes I am a sucker for twinkle lights. It also provided a great excuse to use a few of my dozen or so cake stands :)
What you will need:
1 wooden planter (roughly 2 feet x 6 inches x 6 inches)
25 lb river rocks ( I used about half of a 50lb bag they sell at home depot for less than $5)
4 chafing fuel cans
Now lay out out your graham crackers and chocolate and roast a marshmallow! Check out s'more recipe ideas at the bottom.
Okay, I'll admit, it can be the tiniest bit of a fire hazard, so make sure you supervise your kids if they are participating (and maybe have a fire extinguisher nearby). The s'mores bar was a hit at our party, nobody was injured, and my furniture stayed intact--an overall success in my book. Definitely worth getting out for the next party...and the next...and the next...
