The Detailed Guide To Make Smores

Learn how to make smores. Although it may seem obvious to those who haven't had them before, smores are a must-have for any cooking experience. Smores, an American favorite, are a great thing to make over an open fire. They can be made over an open fire, on a fire pit, in your fireplace, or over a campfire. You can also make them in the oven or on your stovetop burners. However, they will not have the same atmosphere as the open fire. Here are the basics of making smores.

What you should prepare to make smores

  • A hot fire: You will need heat. You can use your fireplace, a campfire, or a fire in the fire pit. You can also use your stovetop in an emergency. You want the fire to be hot and glowing with red embers. If you have a new fire, and your marshmallows are too close to the flames, they may catch fire.
  • Skewers - Any long skewer will work. Two prong skewers are preferred by me, as shown below. A single prong skewer can cause marshmallows to become droopy as they cook, and they may also tend to break off the skewer. Two prongs hold the marshmallows better.
  • Marshmallows - Any will do.
  • Chocolate Bars - I recommend that you spend a little more on premium chocolate. Although simple Hershey's chocolate bars will work, gourmet chocolate brands are far better!
  • Graham Crackers - While any brand will do, there are some better brands that you can find in fine supermarkets.

A detailed way to make smores

  1. After you have built your fire, place one marshmallow per skewer. Keep your Graham crackers, chocolate, and other snacks close at hand.

  2. Then, rotate the marshmallow close to your fire. To ensure even cooking, rotate the marshmallows around your fire. You should also avoid getting too close to the flames to ensure they don't catch on fire and burn. If they catch on fire, blow them out quickly. You can simply take the black, charred marshmallow off your plate before you eat. I like a toasty, brown marshmallow. You can take your time and rotate them around the fire but not directly. It may take some time, but it is well worth it.

  3. Once your marshmallow is cooked to your satisfaction, place it on a Graham cracker. Then use a piece of chocolate to lift it off the skewer.

  4. You can either eat the smores or add more Graham crackers to make a complete sandwich.

  5. When making smores, some people prefer to melt the chocolate slightly. The chocolate will melt slightly when it comes in contact with hot marshmallows. However, if you want your smores to be gooey, you can heat them in the oven before you start to make them. You can also place the entire thing wrapped in foil in a warm oven for just a few minutes.
