If my kids are nothing else they are resourceful.
This is kind of becoming a weird family tradition for us. It started last summer while on vacation. It was one particular rainy night. Too wet to grill, too wet to light a fire in the fire pit, yet we had all these marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers calling our names..."S'mores, you must have s'mores.
Thus was invented...
The Candle S'more
Now I'm not even sure this is healthy. Doesn't a candle give off some weird toxin that I've now exposed my kids too? They're already quite loopy so I'm not sure how much further damage this could really cause. I was sure however, to suggest tea lights because I'm pretty sure the flavor of a marshmallow should not be enhanced by the "tropical passion fruit" or "sun and sand" candles I have here in the house.
Let me tell you up front it takes a heck of a long time to roast a marshmallow over a tea light!
But here they are doing their level best...
Little had a really hard time not snuffing out the flame. Not much roasting going on here.
Large was not wasting any time with the tea light. He's the impatient one. The weird "I'm enjoying this way too much" look he has on his face worries me a little.
Check out the look of concentration on Medium's face. He tackles everything in this manner. No fooling around, especially when there's food involved!
And finally, the finished product. If it looks like a s'more, and tastes like a s'more, it must be...
