Really there's only one reason to go camping--the s'more. For those s'more challenged folks out there, here are 4 easy steps you can take to make your camping experience much more enjoyable. Remember to follow each of the 4 steps carefully or else you'll just end up botching the whole thing up.
STEP 1: The campfire
You can't make a good s'more without the right campfire. After you've started up your campfire, you can't just jump right into making the s'mores. You've gotta be a little patient, let the fire marinate for a little while until the coals are glowing just right.
STEP 2: The mallow roast
Again, the trick here is patience. Once you have your mallow on its roaster, suspend it over the coals, slowly rotate it with care, and wait until the mallow is lightly browned.
STEP 3: The mallow transfer
Okay, this may very well be the most crucial step. Be sure that you have an acceptable wingman before attempting to execute the mallow transfer. You have to be quick, you have to be precise...Oh man, I'm getting a bit nervous just thinking about it. If you botch this step up, the whole s'more will be ruined. Once your mallow is sufficiently browned, have your wingman close by and ready with the grahams and bed of chocolate. As you can see, Melanie's an expert at the mallow transfer. Study the pictures, learn from her.
STEP 4: Mmmmm, s'mores
Once you've successfully completed the mallow transfer, you're ready to eat your s'more and enjoy the rest of your camping experience. Follow these 4 steps, and your camping buddies will look at you with awe and envy, not unlike the way Luke is looking at Melanie in the photo above.
Melanie and Luke...I told those two to take it easy with the mallows, but they didn't listen...just a couple of crazy kids.
