I recently went solo camping and brought supplies to make smores. My friends couldn’t believe that I would make smores when I am camping all by myself. Why not? I mean, I love to share that oohy-goodness, but when a girl needs melted marshmallows and chocolate, don’t stand in her way. I will tell you though, when it’s just me, I grab a long twig off the ground then using my camping knife, whittle a point on the end. I will place that in the flame for a little bit to burn off anything that was there. Then I add my marshmallow and go to town making a decadent smore or two to enjoy. This recipe though is one I use when I have a few friends with me and want to impress them with gourmet smores. Yes, there is such a thing! Campfire Smores That Your Friends Will Fight You is a delicious recipe that can even be made boozy!

There are a couple different variations that you can do with one cast iron skillet, marshmallows, and gourmet chocolate. That’s right – use the good chocolate for this and if you want to go boozy, add a little bit of Kahlua or Bailey’s. 🙂
Campfire Baked Marshmallows
In a cast iron skillet or pot, line up your marshmallows so they are all touching. Then simply place your cast iron skillet directly onto your campfire’s coals or use a campfire tripod. Watch carefully, because depending on how hot your fire is, these can be done in just a minute or two.
Boozy Campfire Marshmallow Dip for Adults
This is where it gets good. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I don’t like smores because I make a big f*cking mess when trying to eat it. I like to have it as a dip instead. On the bottom of the cast iron skillet add your gourmet chocolate, I love Theo Chocolate out of Seattle, then add in a shot or two of Bailey’s, Kahlua, or Godiva. The next layer is the marshmallow layer. Grab your graham crackers or even just get a spoon and dig in! That’s what I do!
Wheat allergy note –>> You can make graham crackers from coconut flour (working on this recipe). For now, I might have one regular smore and then simply make this campfire marshmallow dip and eat it with a spoon. I have been known to top off the chocolate and marshmallows with whipped cream. I mean, if you are going in, you should go ALL IN.
