3. Classic S’more
Four easy steps for one sweet treat! Read on for instructions.
Step 1: Prep two graham crackers, lining one cracker with a piece of chocolate.
Step 2: Roast one marshmallow. Cook until golden brown. The best method is to keep the marshmallow away from the flames, and slowly roast it over the fire’s coals. Rotate your roasting stick frequently to ensure it is cooked evenly.
Step 3: Without touching the roasting stick’s hot end, pull the marshmallow off by sandwiching it between the two graham crackers. Keep the chocolate piece inside as you do this.
Step 4: Lightly press the two crackers together flattening the roasted marshmallow and melting the chocolate.
Step 5: Bon appetit!
4. Raspberry S’more
If the original s’more wasn’t quite enough, use this recipe to make this favourite extra decadent.

5. Banana Boat
A Banana Boat is the perfect combination of a s’more and a banana split. It is as quick as splitting a banana in half, covering it with tasty toppings of your choice, wrapping it in tin foil, and placing it over the fire. Get the scoop on nine different kinds here.
