This Summer Make The Most Memorable S'mores Face and you Could win a prize!


Around our house and neighborhood, fire pit nights and S'mores are fun times!
We  have a big Bonn fire the last night of our family vacation. Everyone cooks their own  hot dogs, Mountain Pies, and S'mores.
  I find that unwrapping all the ingredients for S'mores and putting them in separate bowls makes it a little easier to manage the cooking and assembling of S'mores, or use paper food boats for individual grab and go!




personal s'mores boats
We like the original S'mores version of; Graham cracker, marshmallow, and Hershey's Chocolate Bars.



fresh and hot out of the oven
You can get creative and add sliced strawberries, bananas, or apples, add a scoop of your favorite ice cream or try the flavored marshmallows available in chocolate and strawberry.
 The rain brought us indoors for our S'mores making. We were glad for the rain after days of really hot weather!  The girls had a good time making the S'mores and eating them! We assembled the S'mores and put them in the oven to bake. The Hershey's Bars melted nice and gooey and the S'mores were tasty! This turned out well and now we know how to make S'mores indoors or outdoors! Watch the video and see the fun!



Do you like eating S'mores or even making them? Take some photos of your campfire or fire pit time and enter them in  Hershey's  Say S'mores contest, the details can be found on Facebook . The contest ends September 21, 2011.  Capture and share your Summer Memories  for a chance to win Prizes!  The grand prize is a Cannon Rebel Camera!  Prizes also include; a slate marble outdoor fire bowl, $250.00 SnapFish gift card, roasting skewers set and the ingredients to make S'mores including Hershey's Chocolate Bars. There is a coupon available for Hershey's Chocolate Bars on Facebook too! Grocery stores have special displays for all the fixings to make S'mores, grab what you need, and use the coupon to save!

New! Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Dinner Kits are cooking up in my kitchen

Summer time dinners are often made on the grill around my house.  For  those hot humid days I don't have much interest to fire up the oven. I tried some new meals from Velveeta called Velveeta Cheesy Skillets. All you have to add is chicken or beef.  The box has the rest of the ingredients all packed inside.

The Chicken and Broccoli skillet meal was tasty and easy to make. I added a bag of frozen broccoli instead of chicken . We had it as the main meal, but you could even serve this as a side dish. We also tried the Zesty Barbecue with Chicken meal.


This skillet meal I did add chicken. These meals are easy to prepare, all in one skillet.
Think of the time and clean up you save! You can go out for Ice Cream!

Look for Velveeta Cheesy Skillet Meals at your grocery store and keep them on hand for those too hot to cook nights or any night!  Also available in Ultimate Cheeseburger Mac and Nacho Cheesy Skillets Dinner Kits.

Disclosure:  I was given this product to try from House Party, the comments and views are my own.
