Is there anything better than a bonfire in the mountains? I love the fresh air, the smell of the bonfire smoke, and making memories with my family. Oh, and S’MORES. Last weekend we toasted marshmallows up the canyon, but we only had chocolate chips for our S’mores. We’d never used chocolate chips before, so it was a new experience. Jordan and I ended up having ourselves a friendly competition to make the perfect S’more. Since we both think our own method is the most clever, I need your help to decide the winner! So I’m presenting both of our Chocolate Chip S’mores and you tell me which one you think is best!

Chocolate Chip S’mores Surprise

Supplies for S’more Surprise:

  • large marshmallows
  • chocolate chips
  • campfire skewer
  • graham crackers – optional

Marie’s Method:
First, make 2-4 holes into the sides of your large marshmallow with the campfire skewer (for adult use only, please be careful if these are hot or have been near the fire.) Now push one chocolate chip into each hole made previously by the skewer (again carefully if your skewers are hot). Then place your marshmallow all the way onto the campfire skewer, from top to bottom, avoiding the holes you just made.

S'mores with chocolate chip

Roast your chocolate chip filled marshmallow over the fire, until toasted to your liking.

I like to add it between 2 sections of a graham cracker. Perfection!

Jordan’s  Method:
Toast your marshmallow until just golden on all sides. Go slow, these things take time.

Then carefully slide the marshmallow off the skewer and into the palm of your hand. Now proceed to insert as many chocolate chip into the hole left from the skewer. Keep filling with chocolate chips until it’s almost over flowing. Now devour, no graham cracker necessary.

Either way, using chocolate chips was a lot of fun. And both methods are super delicious. But now it’s time to vote! Jordan’s is about maximum chocolate intake! Mine is about being cute and crafty! Which do you prefer?
