Pinterest Do: Individual S'mores Pots
If you guys follow me on Instagram, occasionally it shows us having S'mores - an ooey, gooey marshmallow, chocolate mess that is awesome! I even have a whole Pinterest page dedicated to S'mores!
Anyway, I saw a post by Apres Fete well over a year ago and pinned it. I finally got around to doing it (cause that's why I pin over 2000 things, because I actually want to do it or it inspires me), and what I pinned was the individual flower pots, filled with aluminum foil, charcoal so you can make s'mores - brilliant!
We don't have a fire pit in our backyard and I certainly don't want to dig out a pit, so this was a perfect fit for my infrequent s'more cravings. I sent the kids around the yard to grab twigs, leaves to put into the flower pot.
While the kids gathered twigs and dried leaves, I put together a simple S'mores assembly line using Hershey's Chocolate, Crackers, Marshmallows, Vanilla wafers and Fondue Skewers (I didn't have Ritz crackers, so I used Vanilla Wafers and another type of cracker - no one complained). :)
The little flower pot was just the right size! With the foil lining the pot, the pot acted as a little oven that warmed and toasted the marshmallow without setting them on fire.
