I have my youngest son to thank for this Instructable. He wanted S'mores, but didn't want the marshmallows put in the microwave. He wanted authentic, toasted-on-an-open-flame S'mores.

When I told him that I did not really want to fire up the grill just to make a couple S'mores, he suggested a mini grill. BRILLIANT!

Step 1: Parts and Tools needed

Parts:

(1) Cedar Plank
(4) Bolts - 1/4 inch and 2 and 1/2 inches tall
(4) Nuts - 1/4 inch
(4) Optional washers for the bolts
(1) 2.5oz Stainless Steel Condiment Cup (Four for 1$ at Wal-Mart)
(1) Box of cheap toothpicks
--NOT PICTURED--
(1) Box of matches
(1) Bag of large marshmallows
(1) Chocolate Bar
(1) Box of graham crackers
(1) Bamboo skewers, normally used for shish kabobs

Tools:
(1) Drill
(1) 2 and 1/2 inch drill bit
(1) 1/4 inch drill bit
(1) Saw
Fun project!
yep, nice and easy. couldn't find a steel cup so used a little glass candle holder
<p>I love this! So cute and easy to make. Thank you!</p>
Cool
<p>that's nice</p>
it worked like a charm. love this. keep adding more instructables!
This is so awesome. You are awesome to let your son do this :)
Yummy this is so cool nice work!!!!!:) ;)
Interesting that nobody seems to have suggested using a Tealight in place of the broken toothpicks as your fire source. I always make toasted marshmallows by lighting a small tealight candle in a shot glass.
cool!
I have these cups. i was wondering what the hell i would need them for =]. i might use all 4 on one board. I've been roasting marshmallows on a penny stove recently but 4 tiny fire pits should work nicely. i thought about welding them together to make a penny stove lol. I want to see more instructables with these cups lol.
I like mine black and bubbly. Then when i chip away it's gooey and warm inside. Perfect.
ya! catch it on fire, then blow it out. thats the way to go!
That's what i usually do. I'm kind of impatient when it comes to marshmallows.
they are also fun to throw at people while they are on fire, they stick AND burn. Woo-Hoo
home made napalm! Yay!!!
never tried that.......gonna have to now. *grabs marshmallow skewer and immediately begins looking for victims*
Hide your kids! Hide your wife!
i dont tame the time to blow it out i just shove the flameing sugar blob in my mouth =-)<br/>lol<br/>
LOL<br />
yum.
I just eat it, black and all. EXTRA IRON!!!!!
lol that black stuff is carbon not iron remember that marshmallows aren't magnetic :)
*blank face* you...you mean that.....that they LIED to me!?!?!?! AHHHHH!<br/>
boo urns :(
i thought it was fiber
SWEET! i shaved a candle and placed a fair amount of the shavings in the cup with the toothpicks. it burns much longer and hotter! :)
Great idea! I'm going to have to try this...
&nbsp;Me and my friend just took a lighter, stuck a marshmellow on a fork, and roasted it with the lighter.
Ah, the modded Instructables Avatar.
Chea brother. This pretty mean :-)
YES!!! ( if you weren't using a zippo, consider it; your thumb won't get tired
i havent tried this but it looks AWESOME!!!
A better fuel would be pure isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol). <br/>It will produce a big flame with that size of opening but the products of the combustion are harmless - carbon dioxide and water vapour.<br/><br/>Take a look at this mini burner: <br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://how2dostuff.blogspot.com/2008_05_01_archive.html">http://how2dostuff.blogspot.com/2008_05_01_archive.html</a><br/>
This is an excellently rendered version of the penny stove. Now I understand how it works. I couldn't with the versions here at Instructables. As the author said, missing pictures.....etc.
siiiicccckkkk!!!!!!
SECONDED
it's spelled K-E-B-A-B-S not K-A-B-O-B-S
&nbsp;actually, kabob is the correct middle eastern spelling. Americants just like to change stuff.
&nbsp;Americants? :(
American replicants. ;)&nbsp;
like that one movie? where the robots looked sooo much like real people that they blended in perfectly until they overthrew the human race from the inside? I think it was called... oh yeah. <strong><em>&quot;The Robots That Looked Sooo Much Like Humans that they Blended In Perfectly Until They Overthrew the Human Race From the Inside 2&quot;</em></strong>
That movie inspired so many people.
You know, this site was created by Americans, and I see you are using it.&nbsp; Check out the 'be nice&quot; policy rules
There is nothing un-nice about that.&nbsp;
Hi 8bit, I&nbsp;was referring to another post that's been removed by the author.
K-A-B-A-B is the middle eastern spelling not K-A-B-O-B. Although i think it doesn't matter since there are a whole lot of spellings and pronunciations.<br /> <br /> Read the wikipedia article:<br /> <br /> <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kebab" rel="nofollow">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kebab</a><br />
<strong>How about -&quot;wow! wonderful Instructable&quot; There is a private message option where you could send your spelling help so that the author could edit it without being publically shamed</strong><br />
seriously we don't<br /> have to be analytical<br /> <br /> <br />
I have no idea what that means but I agree.<br />
