Back in July I had a chance to take a quick break from cookies to create this S’mores table for a client’s housewarming party. It’s a fun idea that can also work perfectly as a treat for guests at summer engagement parties or rehearsal/welcome dinners…just as long as a fire pit or grill is involved!
For this set-up I made 4 different flavors of marshmallows, raspberry, lime, vanilla, and chocolate. There were 2 different kinds of graham crackers, 3 types of chocolate, and 2 toppings. The toasted coconut and chopped toasted pecans were delicious add-ons and stuck to the melted marshmallows perfectly! I used simple plates and bowls for the display as well an incorporating some tin pails and wicker baskets to keep it elegant but summery and slightly rustic.
Since there were so many possible s’mores flavors I thought that it would be nice to give guests some creative ideas by attaching tags with different combinations to the end of the skewers with some paper raffia. Some delicious flavors included Key Lime Pie – honey graham cracker with lime marshmallow, white chocolate, and dipped in toasted coconut: Dark Chocolate Raspberry – chocolate graham cracker with raspberry marshmallow and dark chocolate: Vanilla Nut – honey graham cracker with vanilla marshmallow and chopped toasted pecans: and of course Traditional S’mores - honey graham cracker with milk chocolate and vanilla marshmallows. Yum!
Another option to include s’mores in your event without the work of building a whole display or making multiple flavors is to package some homemade (or store bought) marshmallows with enough graham crackers and chocolate to make a few delicious treats per guest. Leave them out by the grill or fire pit along with some skewers and let guests enjoy them at their leisure!
