S'mores Bar12:31 PM
This was a very fun way to serve dessert and really very easy!
So, this is our S'mores bar we made for our 4th of July party. Lots of galvanized and glass.
The wooden skewers rested inside a empty paint can.
Hershey Bars and Reeses cups were tucked into a galvanized garden toolbox.
Glass canisters stored the marshmallows and Hershey miniatures. The glass canister worked perfectly to keep the marshmallows fresh.
As for where to put the "fire" - we used a really large galvanized tub that we usually use to keep drinks cold. A bag of pea stone was poured into the bottom, and then the sterno was placed in the rocks. It burned safely for hours and hours! I went to bed at 2 and it was still going. (I should probably mention that there were still a bunch of guys over ... it wasn't left lit all night unattended) I probably lit it around 7 o'clock.
Regular and chocolate graham crackers were in a tray on the other side of the table. I opened a couple packages and left the rest sealed until they were needed. I didn't want them to get soggy. Luckily, being set up under the deck in a little shade really helped, everything stayed fresh and the chocolate didn't all melt!
This is definitely a dessert idea I would use again.
