Strawberry S’mores

Strawberry S'mores

Best way to end a summer night? Roasting marshmallows by a fire and making s’mores! This was by far one of my favorite things to do growing up. My whole family loves s’mores and if we were having a fire before my Dad was done milking cows, one of us would run a s’more down to the barn for him to enjoy.

Now that Ian and I live in an apartment, our s’more days are limited to when we visit my family. To make these evenings even more special, I tried my hand at making my own marshmallows. I experimented with a few flavor infusions and settled on these strawberry swirl marshmallows!

Once they are lightly toasted and sandwiched between a piece of chocolate and two graham crackers you can dive into a delicious s’more that tastes like a chocolate covered strawberry. Pure perfection! Just be warned, they can be a bit messy!

To make your own strawberry swirl marshmallows at home, follow this recipe. Once you have the marshmallow batter poured out into your container, dollop a few spoonfuls of strawberry jelly on top and drag a wooden kabob skewer through the batter to create a swirl effect.

Luckily, summertime campfires and making s’mores didn’t end with my childhood. My family still gathers around our fire pit we when get together and roast marshmallows while we catch up on each others lives.

The lightly toasted marshmallow, chocolate and graham cracker combination is hard to beat, so I thought it was the perfect inspiration for a summer cocktail.
