Want to add a little old school fun to any summer party? Build a s'mores bar! It's really easy to create some old school fun... who doesn't love s'mores!
First question: what kind of party are you having? Casual? More elegant? Don't worry. You can create a s'mores bar with unique ingredients to suit the style and theme of your party. Use containers and vessels to suit the decor and mood of your event.
I like to make the marshmallows easy to reach so I create a little "sculpture" with them. For roasting, use something you can put into the fire--- wooden skewers work well, but only if you soak them in water for 30 minutes first so they don't burn up.
Select ingredients that will suit your menu. For this backyard camping party theme, we went a little old school with Hershey bars, graham crackers, and Jet-puffed marshmallows but added some fun with Nutella, the chocolate and hazelnut spread, sliced strawberries, coconut toasted marshmallows and even peanut butter. Then we also added some different cookies: Biscoff, Almond Thins, and ginger snaps are all good choices.
Simply toast up your marshmallows to the desired degree of doneness. I don't like mine too burnt, but I know some of you do. Spread Nutella on your cookie. Layer sliced strawberries or raspberries. Add your toasted marshmallows and top with another cookie spread with Nutella. Your guests will love this variation on a campout classic!
Almost any topping you find at an ice cream or yogurt shop will work for a s'mores bar!
Mini chocolate chips
Dulce de leche or caramel
