Which do you prefer? Sitting out on the porch with a popsicle or sitting around a campfire roasting s'mores? I'm from Texas, so I can handle some scorching heat. I try to enjoy the winter fun outside, but I will admit, I get cold way too quickly. This means I have to get creative with indoor fall and winter activities. So, what's the equivalent of me enjoying a pickle pop on a hot summer day when it's 28 degrees outside? An indoor s'mores maker.
That's right. No fire pit or bonfire needed. Indoor s'mores makers are perfect for those who can't build a campfire or don't have a fireplace. Also, it's a safer alternative for little ones. You can have your own delicious s'mores in minutes with a s'mores maker. For me, s'mores bring to mind campfires as a kid, trying to perfect my s'more- do you char it on the outside for a crispy exterior, or slowly roast it on all sides to golden perfection?
I was never the kid who had the patience to do that, but it's hard to make a s'more that tastes bad. Using an indoor s'more maker is a great way to perfect your skills and take a trip down memory lane to the days of summer camp. Plus, it's a fun way to make some sweet treats. After all, no one's too old to enjoy a warm, melty marshmallow with a crunchy graham cracker and a piece of chocolate.
