Campfires – Not Just S’mores Anymore!

marshmallows_campfireAt any given time during the year there is bound to be the crackle of a campfire in one or more of the fire pits here at Tomhegan Camps on beautiful Moosehead Lake.  It’s great to see families and friends gather around the fire in the evening or cooking breakfast on a crisp autumn morning.  There is something super special about food that comes directly from the fire to your plate and of course the quintessential s’more is at the top of everyone’s list.  The original Girl Scouts recipe from nearly 100 years ago is printed below, and if you are a purist, then this is the recipe for you.  But, we have collected a few ideas to kick your s’mores up a notch. Check out some of these creative additions that are sure to get your mouth watering and have you planning your next campfire… hopefully here at Tomhegan!

Of course you can switch up the flavor of the graham cracker to chocolate or cinnamon and get super inventive with any of these delicious add ins:

sliced bananas, sliced strawberries, bacon, peanut butter, caramel, toasted coconut, dark chocolate, mint chocolate, Nutella, cinnamon, chili powder…

The list is limited only by your imagination!
