What Are S’mores?

S’mores are a contraction of two words: Some More. Because that’s exactly what you’ll want after your first bite!

The recipe first appeared in the 1920s in a Campfire Marshmallows cookbook as Graham Cracker Sandwiches.

These classic treats are made by placing a roasted marshmallow between two graham crackers with a piece of chocolate.

The heat of the roasted marshmallow softens the chocolate for a delicious treat.

How Do You Set Up a Holiday Dessert Board?

A s’mores board is very easy to put together!

You’ll want a variety of cookies, graham crackers, candies, and marshmallows. You can even serve sliced fruit for some fun flavor combinations.

Consider including some spreads like peanut butter, Nutella, caramel sauce, lemon curd, or jelly for more variations.

How to Make Indoor S’mores

Have you seen some of the new indoor, tabletop firepits that are growing in popularity?

They’re the perfect way to make s’mores in the comfort of your home.

We love the look of the indoor firepits made by Ston Home: they’re available in black or white granite.

However, there’s a wide variety of options available now to suit any home’s decor.

Wooden skewers or fondue forks work well to roast the marshmallows.

Be sure to use the type of fuel recommended by the particular indoor firepit you choose.

Many of them recommend either 91% isopropyl alcohol or this type of gel fuel.

Both options are smoke-free and clean-burning.

I prefer using an indoor firepit that has a lid to easily control the height of the flame and also quickly extinguish the fire.

Indoor Firepit Safety

While indoor firepits have been designed with safety in mind, it’s still important to follow basic fire safety measures when you use one.

Place your firepit away from flammable materials
Be vigilant about loose clothing
Never leave it unattended
Always supervise children and pets
Consider having a fire blanket available in case of an accident

Would This Be Considered a Dessert Charcuterie Board?

Charcuterie is a term referring to a variety of cured meats and cheeses.

In recent years, charcuterie boards have become a staple for entertaining, and for good reason!

Since these s’mores boards don’t include meats and cheese they are not considered charcuterie.

This is strictly a dessert board, a simple and trendy way to serve up a tasty treat.

So tell me, which s’mores combination do you want to try most?
