  • Honey gram crackers

  • Hershey's milk chocolate bar

  • Marshmallows

Cooking Instructions​​

  1. Using a fallen stick or metal skewer, stick a marshmallow (or two or three) on one end.

  2. Over the coals of a dying fire, slowly roast your marshmallow until golden brown. For those that enjoy a blackened marshmallow, go right for the orange flame, just be prepared to blow out a flaming marshmallow and have a bucket of water nearby. 

  3. While roasting, ask your friend to prepare a gram cracker and chocolate sandwich. 

  4. Once your mellow is cooked to your liking, have a friend use the gram cracker-chocolate sandwich to grab the hot marshmallow off the stick. 

  5. Enjoy the gooey yet crunchy bites while warm!
