    S’mores are a campfire treat that consist of two graham crackers, a toasted marshmallow, and a piece of chocolate bar melted together into a sandwich.

    Yummy, although I don’t like sweets much anymore.

    S’mores… definitely an American thing.

    Usually made over a campfire, they are graham crackers (digestives), chocolate, and marshmallows. You roast the marshmallow, and put it between two graham crackers with some chocolate. The heat from the marshmallow melts the chocolate and it turns into an ooey gooey mess.

    But it’s NUMMY!

    When I was younger, my grandmother would let me make them over the (gas) stove when I had my friends over. :)

    The traditional thing Aussies do at campfires with marshmallows is put them on a stick and roast them. Haven’t ever done a sandwich thing with them though.
