S'mores Variations

Chocolate graham cracker, crunchy pb,milk chocolate, plain marshmallow

A couple of months ago, I took the kids to the store and we loaded up everything you might need to make S'mores. It had been a dreary week, of cold and snow (keep in mind we were in Utah then) and I thought we would have fun making them inside.
We wanted to do a couple of variations, so we got chocolate, cinnamon and regular graham crackers, strawberry, toasted-coconut and regular marshmallows, different kinds of chocolate and fresh fruit.
Then, we got home and started making combinations. We used the microwave to puff our marshmallows, but at this time of year, doing these around a campfire would be fun.
We went a little crazy. Here are a few of our favorite combinations.
We had neighbor kids over and all the kids really loved these fun treats. Well, the adults loved them too.

Have a fun, safe 4th of July. We are in Washington, D.C. and really looking forward to the festivities!

What a fun thing to do with the kiddos on a cold day, the variations sound so tasty :)! Right now, I am sooo missing the snow :P. We're in the south all summer and melting; it's hitting the 100s here!

How fun! The only thing missing is the commentary. What were your favorites? We're going camping next week and you've given me some great ideas. THANKS!

What a great idea!! How cool would it be to entertain and have a s'more bar with all those options that people can choose from to build their own s'more!
