Fall is on the way! It’s a great time for camping trips and/or sitting around a fire catching up with friends, storytelling, and indulging in a favorite pastime… making s’mores! Young and old alike go a little crazy for these sweet treats. If you have a large crowd, passing out all of the ingredients can be a bit tedious. But, not with this make ahead S’mores Camping Kit!
Making s’mores kits ahead of time can be a real time saver. Just pass them out with skewers or have them ready to grab off of a tray and everyone is ready to get started!
The Mini S’mores Kit is super simple to put together. You will need snack-sized plastic baggies to hold all of the ingredients. Put one of the small s’mores labels on the bottom corner of the baggie. The add 2 graham crackers, a quarter of a Hershey’s chocolate bar and a couple of marshmallows for roasting.
These whip up in a jiffy and are great for single servings.
For your big eaters, make up a few of the Large S’more Kits. You will need sandwich-sized plastic baggies for these. Include several graham crackers, an entire Hershey’s bar and several marshmallows. After sealing the bag, apply the fold-over large s’more label to the top of the baggie.
The easiest way to use this label is to trim the long sides of the sheet of paper with the labels right up to the edge of the labels themselves with a paper trimmer or pair of scissors. Then, carefully peel up bottom half of one of the labels and trim off 1/2″ of the paper backing. Repeat with the top half of the label. Repeat this process with the 2nd label on the sheet. You should now have 2 labels with 1/2″ of paper backing missing from the top and bottom sections (see top right photo above). Stick the label to the front of the baggie then fold in half and stick the other end of the label to the back of the baggie. Do not remove the center strip of backing on the label. This will make it easier to remove later when someone is ready to use it.
How excited will your group be when you pull out these s’more kits once the campfire is lit? Whether your bonfire is in the backyard or off at a campsite, you’ll be glad you made these up ahead of time.
