Step 2: S'mores Hearth
Use a cake pan and add a layer of sand place the alcohol burner to the outside of the pan to leave an open area for the marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers. Place your stones in a pleasing way.
Step 3: Add Fuel--Safety First
Add Alcohol to burner and light. WARNING---WARNING---Never ever add fuel to a flaming burner. Always ensure the flame is out and cool before adding alcohol. A square of folded aluminum foil can be kept near by to snuff the flame.
The alcohol burner is a simple container made from an aluminum bottle but any fire proof container that will hold one oz. of fuel will work. A 97% isopropyl alcohol works best.
