B onding over S’mores
A lways such a fun thing to do
S itting around a campfire
H ighlighting summer with bliss


I t’s in those special moments that we
N urture the child that lives within every one of our hearts, young and old


A mazingly we have the power to preserve that feeling, also enabling our children to remember these special times, too


B egin with three simple ingredients:  graham crackers, HERSHEY’S chocolate squares, and fluffy marshmallows
U tilize safety when roasting your marshmallow over open flame
C areful not to burn —unless you like it that way (I totally do!)
K now that exact moment when to place your marshmallow atop your chocolate and graham, and
E at your S’mores without a care in the world, without worry that your fingers and face are messy
T hat’s when you’ve achieved that S’mores zen, that feeling of summer and friendship and laughter and fun!

S’mores have become a regular bonding treat for my children and our friends.  They are so simple to make, even without making a bonfire; although, there’s something magically special about marshmallows that are roasted over open flame.
This summer, I suggest you get together the people in your life that make you happy, and throw a BASH IN A BUCKET party.    All you need for your bucket is graham crackers, HERSHEY’S chocolate bars, marshmallows, and sticks (or those fancy marshmallow roasting do-hickeys!)   Then you are ready to roll, making taste buds dance, hearts happy, and memories to last a lifetime.

The S’more, The Merrier!

“This summer, the Hershey Company is encouraging families to create their own S’mores memories with the Say S’mores campaign. Starting June 15, families are invited to capture and share their favorite S’mores moments on the Hershey’s brand Facebook page at for a chance to win S’mores-themed prizes.  The grand-prize is a Canon Rebel Camera, a slate marble outdoor firebowl, $250 SnapFish gift card, roasting skewers set and all of the ingredients needed to make S’mores, including Hershey’s Milk Chocolate bars. Families who visit the Hershey’s brand Facebook page on or after June 15 can download the Say S’mores application to participate in monthly photo contests and receive a $1 coupon good toward the purchase of any two Hershey’s Milk Chocolate bar 6-packs.”


Last week, our friend Pasha was visiting.  Pasha is an exchange student from Ukraine, and he’s due to go home soon.  We’ve had a great time bonding with him, and I thought it was a perfect night to introduce him to S’mores.  We couldn’t have a bonfire to roast marshmallows, so in a pinch I decided to try making them in the microwave.  I was skeptical, but —oh my gosh— it worked!

For dinner that night we had gone to Moe’s (can’t beat Kids Eat Free night!)  Pasha said he was too full to have dessert, but I still made them.  He liked them so much that he ate TWO!

Here’s some video I took of the merry S’more munching:


The kids were so happy, and now that the cat’s out of the bag—what with making delicious S’mores in the microwave—I’ll have to make S’mores for them as a treat more often.  One of them even said, “This means we can have S’mores any time we want now!”

And, that’s what happened just one night later when The Bigs stayed up late to watch a movie together.

Now you totally want some S’mores, right?
