We’re packed up for some tent camping at Lake Michigan this weekend. Well, actually I’ll be staying at my folk’s house with our youngest while my husband roughs it with the girls down at the state park campground. It’s not that I’m averse to tenting, hubby and I spent our first 10 weeks of marriage on a camping roadtrip up the West coast and into Canada. But when a nice bed, AC and a coffeemaker are just a few blocks away at grandparents’ house…I’m choosing that! Part of the fun with camping is making camp food. All the goods for hobo pies, bacon and pancakes, and s’mores are ready to go.
Obviously, you don’t need a recipe for s’mores, just the technical know-how. I used to pack Divvies chocolate chips, try to stack them on the bottom graham cracker and hope they’d stay put while placing and smashing the toasted marshmallow into the s’more sandwich. More often then not, chocolate chips ended out in the sand and didn’t melt too well. Now I pre-melt chips in the microwave and spread the chocolate chips on the graham cracker before we go and they’re perfect!
