When I think of S’mores, I think of the ooey gooey mixture of melted marshmallows and chocolate with the nice little crunch from the graham crackers.  I remember making these around the campfire in scouts, and insisted that I get to make them at home, too.  That’s when I discovered the magical world of indoor S’mores-making.  I’ve been hooked ever since.

Let’s Make S’mores Tonight

I planned on having a movie night with my family last weekend, and I knew that would be the perfect occasion to make this recipe.  After a day of playing outside in the summer heat, it can be so nice to just crank up the air conditioner and enjoy some together time indoors.

To get ready for our big night, I picked up my supplies at my local Walmart.  They in the center of the wide space right between the breakfast meats and baking supplies.  Look at this adorable display!  Most of my ingredients were right there, all together.  I got my Hershey’s Milk Chocolate bars (sold in 6pk at Walmart), Honey Maid Graham Cracker Squares (exclusively at Walmart), and Kraft’s Jet Puffed Marshmallows.

When I got to the register, the cashier smiled this huge grin and said, “Looks like it’s S’mores tonight for you guys, right?”  Oh yes, she was so right!

Not that the original was lacking anything, but I wanted to put a twist on the classic S’mores recipe, so I got a few more of my favorite dessert ingredients to really get this movie party started.
