S’more Hot Chocolate

If you attended BlogHer this year in New York City, then you may have found a small spot of serenity at the Wal-Mart & Hershey’s Camp Bondfire.

Upon entering the hotel suite, each guest stepped into a backyard of campfire fun complete with tabletop grills to roast marshmallows and make scrumptious graham cracker and chocolate sandwiches also known as s’mores.

It was the tastiest fun at BlogHer.

But this campfire themed fun wasn’t without reason.  Did you know Friday, August 10th is National S’mores Day?

For my chocolate loving family, that’s old news. However, this year, we decided to commemorate the occasion with a twist on an old favorite: S’more Hot Chocolate.

So this season, when you’re snuggling around a campfire, wrap your hands around this warm chocolaty goodness.

That looks nice never had s’mores before, it’s not a common thing in the UK, but would really like to try that on my next camping trip! :)
Are graham crackers similar to digestives?

Cheers!

Welcome from across the pond, Martin! Yes, graham crackers are similar to digestives only graham crackers are slightly thinner. S’mores are a camping must. I hope you enjoy them!
