Take Your S'mores Recipe to the Next Level

People often ask me how my kids do when we going camping nearly every weekend. The answer is they love it. They can't wait to go again each weekend. Why? Because I always try to have something new and fun. This past weekend, I took a simple twist on everyone's favorite campfire snack and it blew their minds.

That's right. I'm talking about s'mores and I have to tell you that you've been doing it wrong all this time. We all have memories of burning marshmallows around the campfire as a kid. So when we go camping we grab a pack of marshmallows, some graham crackers and a slab of chocolate and head out to the campground.

Simple but delicious.

Just roast a marshmallow over the fire. Place a peanut butter cup on a graham cracker and squish the melted marshmallow between the peanut butter cup and another graham cracker. Yum. You'll love it and everyone at camp will think you're a hero.
