Yum… Chocolate~

Summer time always gets me to thinking about nighttime campfires, and roasting s’mores.  Well, believe it or not, we can make even s’more-making educational!  With the help of Amanda Bennett’s unit study on Chocolate. {if you choose to get her unit study on chocolate} Yum!!!!

What originally caught my eye was this
June_Summer_of_Fun_Cover_SM   I am all about something giving me ideas for summer activities, and a CALENDAR of monthly activities looked right up my alley. 
If you decide to download it (click on the image), you will see it starts off with this week being the week for Chocolate Challenge. One of the days suggestions is to make s’mores.  (But, before you do watch this video on how chocolate is made)

How to make a smore… outside
     Gather around a warm campfire with friends or family.
     Break a graham cracker into two halves. Place one quarter of a chocolate bar on one half of a graham cracker.  
     Stick one large marshmallow on the end of a wire or clean stick. An unwound wire hanger works well.
     Hold your marshmallow several inches over the hot embers of the fire.
     Rotate the wire as the marshmallow cooks, allowing the marshmallow to become lightly browned all over.
     Place the browned marshmallow on top of the graham cracker and chocolate.
     Place the other half of the graham cracker on top of the marshmallow, creating a sandwich.
     While firmly holding the two graham crackers together, pull the wire out of the marshmallow.
     Wait about 30 seconds for the warm marshmallow to melt the chocolate.
     Eat the s'more after allowing it to cool. You'll want some more - so return to step two.
Enjoy your s’mores and the time with your family!     Smores_Illustration
