Campfire Treats

You’ve probably seen scenes in films or T.V. shows of people gathered around a bonfire or a fireplace with skewersin their hands and white, puffy things at the tips of them.

The white, puffy things are marshmallows and they are traditional to roast over a fire, especially when you are with friends or family. These roasted marshmallows become soft and liquid-like, and are then placed on top of a chocolate square which is then placed on top of a graham cracker.


Marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers are the components of a s’more. S’mores are usually eaten as a snack of dessert when camping or elsewhere in which bonfires are made.

They’re fun and easy to make! If you’d like to try this at home, you can put the whole s’more in the microwave for a few seconds to simulate a similar effect.

    Hello Aba!

    How are you?

    This article is very interesting, I like to know new things about England.

    Anyone know if they sell at any grocery store marshmallows?

    I would like to provide this snack or dessert.

    Have a good day!

    Hi Belinda!

    You live in Spain? Here you can find them in sweet shops, and they’re called “nubes”. The bigger the shop (maybe Carrefour?), the more types you’ll find. I hope we helped! Let us know if you have anymore questions and enjoy your roasted marshmallows!

    Have a lovely day!

    Hello Aba:
    Sure, it’s a very great subject. The very strange and wonderful thing I’ve found in my life was that, if I open any page of any science or book I must find a new word or new words or expressions. From this subject you’ve written about, I’ve got the very useful words and expressions. I hope to learn more from you. Thank you and have a nice day.
