Canada Day is Smores

We have yet to go camping this year. It’s sad. I love the woodsy smells, the quiet vigil as the sun goes down over a calm lake, the waking up early because there is a bird squawking outside of your tent and you want to throw your shoe at it. I mean the bird songs singing you to sleep and chirp of chipmunks as they rummage through your snacks and shoes you left outside of the tent. I mean the wildlife and food wonderfully cooked over an open fire.

Even though we haven’t made it anywhere rustic, we still get our fix for campfire food at home. Smores have been the quickest and most delicious.

You only need three basic ingredients to make you start smelling pine needles and swatting imaginary mosquitoes: graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows. I threw in some strawberries to switch it up.

Layer your ingredients on top of one of the crackers for the sandwich. Here is the classic chocolate and marshmallow. You might need to get creative to make the chocolate stick.

I used just a big slice of strawberry to get a little more flavour in some of them.

Broil on high in the oven for about 5 minutes, or until the marshmallows puff up and get golden. You might need to wrangle your chocolate back on the cracker.

Squish the other graham cracker on top. Let sit for two minutes and scoop out with spatula. Napkins are a must. Bibs, too.

These will definitely help you with your campfire fix. For more fun, melt the mallows over an open candle flame. Watch for cat tails and curious noses if doing it on the coffee table.
