My favorite four-year old is turning FIVE this week and to celebrate his birthday, his mom and dad threw a camping-themed bash last Saturday afternoon. Burgers on the grill, tents, sparklers, a fire pit and Boone’s Farm (for the adults only, of course) transformed their backyard into the quintessential campsite; complete with ‘Smores-Making Kits as party favors.
- Melting Milk Chocolates or Milk Chocoloate Chips
- One Bag of Large Marshmallows
- Graham Crackers
Pour the melting chocolates or chips into a shallow bowl. Heat in 30-second increments in the microwave, stirring the chocolate in between heating until melted and creamy.
Put 3-4 graham crackers in a plastic, ziploc bag and crush into crumbs until they are nearly dust. Pour them out on to large plate and spread evenly.
Poke a marshmallow with a toothpick on its flat side. Roll it in the melted chocolate, coating the entire rounded portion. Then roll the chocolate-dipped ‘mallow in the graham cracker crumbs until covered.
Plate on its flat side and let sit for 10-15 minutes until the chocolate starts to harden. Serve & try not to eat the whole plate yourself.
