I’ve said it many times before – one of my favorite things about summer is s’mores. In fact, it might be my absolute favorite thing about the sticky, sweaty season we call summer. Ok, ok. Maybe that’s a slight exaggeration, but I do love me some s’mores. [And hate the heat.] Now take out the outdoor portion of s’mores and add Reese’s. And I think you’ve found summer perfection in these Reese’s s’mores skillet yall!
The kids have recently discovered the joy that is a s’more. The last time we were up in Michigan we had a bonfire and roasted mallows. Both kids held a stick and had a go at toasting their own mallows. [Which was nerve wrecking but they did good.] Then when we took the mallows and made then into s’mores, well they were slightly excited.
I mean mallows and chocolate?! They probably had 3 each that night. And roasted the whole bag of marshmallows. I can’t tell you how many half burnt mallows I ate that night. The dog ate some too and quite a few were tossed over my head when they weren’t looking. [Ya, I’m that mom.]
Making s’mores in Michigan is slightly different from making them in Texas. Up there it cools down enough at night that you might actually enjoy a fire if your outside. Down here. Forget it. Any more heat is just not welcomed. [Well, by me at least.]
So take the best part of having a bonfire [aka the s’mores] and move it inside. Pure summer bliss. And even though the kids love roasting marshmallows, they sure had a blast eating this Reese’s s’mores skillet. Ryley grabbed her little step stool and bellied right up to the s’mores bar. I showed her how to use the graham crackers to scoop out the melted chocolate and marshmallows. I think we both will be able to handle the summer heat, as long as we have these s’mores inside.
- approx. 2 cups of chocolate chips
- 4-5 Reese's peanut butter cups (regular size)
