Ultimate S'mores

Hurray for the first camping trip of the season! :)
Emily and I got an extra special treat this last weekend. Not only did we get to hang out and see each other for the first time in years, but also we got to go camping together. We had such a fun time with each other, with our families, and with our extended family. Few things are as fun as staying up late talking around the campfire while all our kiddies are sleeping peacefully in their tents (well, all our kiddies except my little angel baby who turns out to be not such an angel when camping. What is up with that??? She seemed utterly confused about why in the world I was putting her down to sleep in the great outdoors.)

Anyway, we had a great time. And, as is typical when Emily and I get together, we decided to snazz things up a bit. S'mores are good, but ULTIMATE S'mores? They are AWESOME. :)





We had the usuals--marshmallows, grahams and chocolate, but we also included lots of fun new ingredients such as fresh strawberries, bananas, and pineapple, peanut butter and pecans, cinnamon grahams, lemon marshmallows, coconut and shortbread cookies. Yum-o! We all had a great time inventing new s'mores.

We created a whole slew of truly delicious s'mores, not to mention lots of fun new memories. The best part was seeing how much fun everyone had making new combinations. We all agreed that the fresh fruit, particularly the strawberries, complimented the sweet vanilla flavor of the marshmallows beautifully. It was a fun night!
