If you happen to watch a lot of movies (and TV series), I’m sure you already have an idea that S’mores have always been depicted as snacks eaten during camping. The usual scene we see in movies is where kids flock around a bonfire, carrying soft white marshmallows skewered on sticks plus a few graham crackers and chocolate by their sides.
These melt-in-your-mouth treats are usually prepared on the spot, so the warmth and gooey-ness of the chocolate with the marshmallows would perfectly blend with the graham crackers’ sweetness. I really believe the whole S’mores experience start with this — the preparation. Can’t you just imagine what it’s like to enjoy a couple of Toasted marshmallows and melted chocolate all sandwiched in between two graham crackers while hearing campfire stories? MMM mmm mmm!
As a kid, I have always wanted to experience my first s’more to be eaten like that. I wanted my first s’more experience to be D.I.Y -ed and I swore to myself that If ever that day would come. I would definitely get money from my own wallet and I’d buy all the graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate bars that I could get my hands on.
It never happened though, sadly. (My first s’more experience was still pretty epic also, but yeah. That’s another story.)
