Think it’s starting to get too chilly to cook outside? Well, grab a blanket, a thermos of cider, and think again! With a backyard fire pit and a few crazy s’more recipes, you can keep the fun going even on cool autumn nights.
Now when you think of a propane fire pit
, you probably also picture a puffy, golden marshmallow on a roasting stick in your hand. S’mores and fire—they go together like a pellet grill and pork
. One without the other feels wrong. But if you had any sort of a childhood, you’ve already experienced the classic white mallow, melty chocolate square, and honey graham cracker combo. Tonight, it’s time to change things up.
If you’d rather not venture far from the conventional s’more recipe, then the Negative S’more is the one for you. It’s a simple reversal of your favorite ingredients: marshmallow, chocolate graham, cookies ‘n’ cream chocolate square. Yes, please!
