We’re sharing the easiest way to make indoor s’mores!
In addition, we’ve got all the ingredients and ideas you need for a great indoor s’mores bar station.
These ideas are a great way to have some outdoor fun … inside or simply sitting around your outdoor patio table or on your deck, if you don’t have a fire pit!
In fact, this indoor s’mores bar station is the perfect way to celebrate National S’Mores Day on August 10.
Why is National S’mores Day in August?
I have no idea.
Because it’s AUGUST and who wants to add even MORE heat to your evening?
So an indoor, air conditioned s’mores bar seems like a splendid idea!
In fact, it’s perfection at any time of the year.
How darling would this idea be for a holiday celebration?
So be sure to bookmark it!
Because the holidays will be here before you know it!
OUR INDOOR S’MORES BAR STEP BY STEP …
There are no rules here!
Just be creative!
For our indoor s’mores bar station, I gathered décor items from around our home (as well as my closet), to set the scene.
The cute plaid table topper is actually a blanket scarf from one of my favorite local boutiques.
Repurposing items to place on a tabletop is one of my favorite things to do.
It looks adorable … and no one knows!
The colors of the scarf remind me of a classic Coleman camping lantern.
They are simply perfect for this theme.
In addition, I raided our Christmas and fall decorations to make the tablescape extra cozy for our s’mores bar station.
Repurposed miniature Christmas trees, cute galvanized buckets, large pinecones and whimsical marshmallow “bouquets” helped to complete the outdoorsy tabletop scene.
HOW TO MAKE INDOOR S’MORES WITHOUT A FIRE …? GET A CAMPFIRE IN A CAN!
At the center of our table is the “campfire,” the Sterno 20261 S’mores Heat can.
This safe and clean-burning fuel is made from renewable sources and non-toxic ingredients. It specifically formulated for cooking.
PRO TIP: Traditional Sterno heat cans cannot be used for this purpose, as they are NOT safe for cooking.
THE ESSENTIAL INDOOR S’MORES BAR INGREDIENTS …
Since this is an interactive s’mores bar station, I’ve broken up the chocolate and graham crackers into individual servings for our “campers.”
We went traditional with the classic Hershey milk chocolate bar.
But there are endless options to you choose from including dark chocolate, chocolate with almonds, or even white chocolate.
Mix it up with your family’s favorites and make it your own!
HOW TO MAKE S’MORES DIP …
In addition, to the usual s’mores, we’ve added an adults only, deconstructed version to our menu.
This boozy s’mores fondue is perfect for mom and dad to share, after your little happy campers have gone to bed.
Obviously, you can omit the whiskey to make it kid friendly … but we sure didn’t!
This Boozy S’mores Chocolate Fondue is simply the bomb!
BOOZY S’MORES CHOCOLATE FONDUE RECIPE
2 cups chopped quality dark chocolate
1/3 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup whiskey
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
Large marshmallows, for toasting
Heat water in a double boiler (you can also place a metal bowl over a sauce pan, filled with water) over medium-low heat.
Add the chocolate and cream, and stir until melted.
Stir in the whiskey. Pour the chocolate sauce into a bowl.
Place the graham cracker crumbs in a small bowl.
Toast the marshmallows over the flame.
Dip the marshmallows into the chocolate sauce, and then into the graham cracker crumbs.
