You know how when you go on vacation, you get so absorbed in the food and the feel of the place, you just can’t let it go when you get home. When you go to the Amalfi coast, you come home and the first thing you eat is a caprese salad and a seafood salad. Or when you go to New Orleans and you come home and the first thing you have for dinner is a roast beef Poboy. Well, we went to Mendocino for a few days and stayed ocean front on the cliffs. We had a fire pit which was so great for the chilly nights. But what’s the first thing you think of with the fire pit? S’mores! Yes, Yum. I’ve found the perfect way to make them that ensures the chocolate melts and the whole thing is a totally gooey mess.
So, we came home from Mendocino and had s’mores for dessert. We just had to have them again. The leftover supplies were staring us in the face. We don’t have a fire pit. Where did we cook them? We did them on the side burner of our barbecue. Well, it wasn’t as picturesque, for sure, but equally as yummy, maybe more. We use the jumbo (not the regular large size) marshmallows and held them over the fire and cooked / burned them. Then we pulled the burned part off and put it on the graham cracker. After that, we put the chocolate bar on top of the marshmallow and cooked the rest of the marshmallow over the fire so it was gooey through and through. Then we put it on top of the chocolate bar before putting the second graham cracker on top. It made the ooiest-gooiest s’more ever!

You can see in the picture above that the chocolate in the jumbo marshmallow s’more is melted because it is between the 2 hot parts of the jumbo marshmallow. You can see in the picture in the beginning of the post the chocolate is not melted. Don’t get me wrong, that first s’more was amazing but this one is far superior. The jumbo marshmallow is a lot of marshmallow!
Aaaahhhh! This says summer. I love my marshmallows totally burned. With the jumbo ones, I can have the burned part I love, but there is also a lot of gooey goodness. It’s the best of both worlds. How do you like your marshmallows? S’mores are the best! The kids were in heaven! Who wouldn’t be? Y’all try it! Happy summer!
