Picture of The Perfect Smore - GOLD EDITION
In this Instructable I will show you the best way to make a smore at a campfire. This is for the pros, be prepared to take spend more time than the kids around you burning theirs in the fire.

Step 1: The Materials

Picture of The Materials
This is a no brainer.


Fire (more importantly, the coals)
A nice long stick
Graham Crackers
What is a Graham Cracker?
R U serious?
Very. There's a recipe in a cookbook I have that suggests Graham Crackers, but it's American and I live in Wales and I've never heard of them :(
It is like a cracker that tastes like a cookie. It is thin and usually golden brown and tastes lightly of honey. It usually is somewhat porous and is light yet hard. It has a honey-sugar taste
Its a recipe if you want to see for yourself!!
How sad. They are really good. You need to try one sometime. Possibly order online?
Sorry to post late here, but I live in Australia, and if you say 'Graham Cracker' to someone, they get this really blank look.... :S FYI I do know what they are my self... :)

Nice instructable, but I prefer the taste of my marshmallows after they've been engulfed in flame. (Actually I usually burn it to a crisp, slide the outside off and eat it, then burn it agian. Double dipping lol!)
the coals may be hot, but it takes too long, good instructable though.
and tastes better
i beg to differ, i have been camping all of my life, and i can make the perfect one.

Smores are much, much better if you spend five minutes making each smore instead of one - roasting them slowly  until they're golden brown and completely gooey and puffy all the way through. If done right, the marshmallow should be on the brink of falling off the stick until you quickly save it from its fiery demise.

The sign of a perfect marshmallow is when it puffs up to about double its size and is uniformly golden and cracked all over. This can take much longer than burning your marshmallow in the fire, but it is oh so worth it. Also, it helps you pace yourself so you can eat more of them!

I used to put the chocolate on the graham cracker and next to the fire to melt the chocolate, but if you do the marshmallow right it gets burning hot all the way through and will completely melt the chocolate in the time it takes for it to cool down enough to eat - this also prevents the chocolate form becoming TOO liquid and on your hands instead of all over the marshmallow.

I approve of your method, the coals are unequivocally the best way to toast the marshmallows. Flames are for kids and the impatient.

what i do is i take a skewer, lite the end so there is a flame on the tip. then i blow it out and slap it on a tree. it should become a sparkler for a few seconds.

The best part about smores is running around with a flaming marshmallow torch!
