Camping requires some basic supplies like a tent (or RV), sleeping bags, lanterns, and cooking supplies. But there are also some extra supplies for your campsite that will make your camping experience much more enjoyable for all involved.
We don't even know what to add to the Title. Toasted Vanilla and Chocolate Swirled Marshmallows sounds perfect to add to a graham cracker and chocolate bar to begin your camping weekend. Come enjoy one with us this Friday evening at 9pm.
Who could pass up something as cute as baby chicks? And who wouldn't want to eat something called "Marshmallow Treat Decorations?" These looked adorable so they will be added to our Friday Evening Bonfire free S'more. We figured instead of the typical marshmallow, we would try out these cuties.
Every Friday evening at 9pm we start a bonfire in our community bonfire pit in front of the swimming pool (between the camp store and the bathhouse). It's a chance to enjoy a bonfire you didn't have to work hard to start.
Each bonfire we will offer a free s'more to each guest. We are going to offer the traditional s'more of graham crackers, a chocolate bar, and a marshmallow each time. But we are also going to mix-it-up each week and offer a special treat for those brave souls. We were pleasantly surprised at the selection of marshmallows available at the store. And of course the substitutions available for the typical Hersey's chocolate bar are endless.
So on your next camping trip to Maple Ridge Campground, stop by the bonfire at 9pm on Friday evening and see what treat we have that night.
We started a new tradition at the campground last year. Every Friday night, we get a campfire going at our new community bonfire pit located in front of the pool. We moved the start time back to 9pm this year to give people more time to set up their campers and get all settled. Once you're ready, head over to the campfire and enjoy a free s'more on us. We will try and have a new twist on the traditional recipe for the s'mores each week. The bonfires give our seasonal campers a chance to mingle with each other. The bonfires also give the weekend campers a chance to enjoy a bonfire without having to get one going on the first night. We, as owners, will be there as well. It gives us a chance to relax and socialized after a hard week of campground repairs and before a busy weekend of campground activities. So on your next camping trip at Maple Ridge Campground, make sure you stop by on Friday night.
Today's recipe says it all in the name, Chocolate Fudge Sundae S'mores. Frost half of a graham cracker with chocolate fudge frosting. Toast marshmallow and place on top of the frosted cracker and top with sundae syrup. Add final graham cracker. Enjoy!
In honor of our Friday Evening Community Bonfire, I will be posting a new S'more idea each Friday. Most will come from a cute little book I just ordered entitled, "So Much S'More to Do" by Becky Rasmussen.
Today's S'more idea is called Chocolate Bar Substitutes. In addition to the marshmallows and graham crackers, why not try chocolate peanut butter cups instead of the usual chocolate bar? Or white chocolate bars. Other suggestions include dark chocolate bars, chocolate crunch bars, or your favorite candy bar. My top choice would be Kit-Kat. What substitutes have you tried?
