It's summer time!!
I don't know about you, but summer always makes me think of long days at the beach, pool parties and backyard BBQs. There's just something about the rising temperatures and the kiddos being out of school that makes us all want to get everyone together and throw parties! In celebration of the 4th of July, we had everyone over for fireworks...and a little summer time fun by the way of Hershey's S'mores!
One of our favorite summer time desserts is S'mores with Hershey's Chocolate - who doesn't love a little ooey, gooey chocolaty goodness?
While I would love to have the kids over (seriously, we have 12 cousins within a square mile so there is never a shortage of kids coming over!) to roast marshmallows over an open fire, we live in a residential area where there are no open fires allowed.
No fire pits.
It kind of stinks!
So we've learned to be really creative with making S'mores. We microwave them, or wrap them in tinfoil and cook them in the oven...or my very favorite way: we cook them on the grill!
While it isn't the same thing as roasting marshmallows and making S'mores over an open fire, it is still pretty fun watching the Hershey's chocolate get all melty and gooey over the flames coming from the grill!
The only downfall to making S'mores on the grill is that you don't get that melty-almost burned marshmallow that you do when roasting marshmallows over an open flame. That's okay...we still had a ton of fun at our HERSHEY’S CAMP BONDFIRE!
The results are equally delicious, whether you cook them in the microwave, oven, grill or over an open fire!
Hello, how could you possibly go wrong with Hershey's Chocolate?
Answer: You can't!
I made up a batch of Hershey's S'mores during our little HERSHEY’S CAMP BONDFIRE and the kids ran out front to watch my husband and my sister's boyfriend set off fireworks. I think half of our family was there, it was so much fun! My aunt and uncle and their four children were down visiting from South Carolina and they came over to watch the fireworks with us. It was really nice to spend a little time with them before they went back home.
It may not have been a real HERSHEY’S CAMP BONDFIRE in the traditional sense, due to our restrictions in the city...but with delicious S'mores and an hour's worth of fireworks going off in the front yard, it was pretty close.
How did you celebrate the 4th of July? Do you have any plans for a summer gathering that includes Hershey's S'mores this summer?
