Mmm. We made some yummy snacks. My favorite part is the char when the marshmallow catches fire on the open flame...
At one point I got impatient waiting for my turn with the skewer and stuck my marshmallow in the microwave. Boy did the kids' eyes get big watching it blow up!
As we were sitting at the table munching our sticky snacks, Maren reflected:
You know, if I were a superhero, I'd be Spider Girl. I would take a bag of marshmallows one at a time, blow them up in the microwave, and throw them at bad guys. Then they would be all stuck together and I could call the police to come get them and take them to jail!
I think microwave s'mores are the equivalent of gas station coffee. When you need a fix, it does the trick. However, for culinary satisfaction purposes, I have to recommend the gas burner method. There is just no replacing the char.
