As I’ve mentioned before, I’m slightly addicted to S’mores, as is my hubby – so we decided to splurge & get a fire pit for our back yard as an early anniversary gift. We got one for around $60 at Target yesterday (along with some great deals on their summer items – 50% off summer clearance as I shared on the Thrifty NW Mom Facebook page!).
We had to try it out the first night, of course, so our daughters could have their very first experience with S’mores - but wouldn’t you know it, we have rain & colder temps in the middle of July. That didn’t stop us – we just got out our rain coats & sat around the campfire in the drizzle. It’s all about being adventurous, right?
Hershey’s is having a fun campaign called “The S’more the Merrier” - spending time with loved ones creating fun family memories while making S’mores over the campfire. Our evening of S’mores-making definitely fit the bill despite the rain! The girls have been begging for more S’mores since then.
You can see first-hand what our girls thought of roasting marshmallows & creating their first s’mores in my first-ever video!
As you can see, my girls definitely were devouring their s’mores – they loved the combination of warm, gooey marshmallow with sweet Hershey’s chocolate! And we found out that my 0ld daughter, Madalyn, is just like her mama – she loved seeing the marshmallow catch fire & then enjoy the crunchy, char-grilled marshmallow!
