All the fixings for a who-can-build-the-craziest-S'more competition.

Dipping our toes in the pool, taking long bike rides through lush greenery, eating a perfectly roasted marshmallow fresh off the campfire — these are just a few of the things we miss most when summer says its annual goodbye. Luckily, there's at least one way to still capture those simple summertime joys: create an epic DIY S'mores station! Packed with sugar cones, chocolate-dipped marshmallows and just about every goodie you could possibly imagine, it's sure to inspire an impromptu who-can-build-the-craziest-S'more competition. While this station is meant for outdoors, it could easily be done inside without the fire if the weather doesn't cooperate.

Here's what you need:

  • Large table
  • Wooden bowls and platters (one for each type of goodie you're serving)
  • Assorted goodies for topping (Sugar cones, yogurt pretzels, graham crackers, sprinkles, chocolate-covered almonds, mini cinnamon buns, mini marshmallows, caramel popcorn, candy-covered chocolate, cookie drops — and anything else you like!)
  • Small wooden crate
  • Chocolate-dipped marshmallows (or plain ones if preferred)
  • Sticks
  • Potted evergreen plants
  • Birch wood (optional)

Here's how to do it: 

  1. Place desired goodies and toppings into separate wooden bowls or on their own platter and arrange them neatly on your table.
  2. Poke through chocolate-dipped marshmallows with sticks to get them ready for roasting, and prop them up in the centre of the table.
  3. Add potted evergreen plants to the table for an outdoorsy feel.
  4. Put sugar cones into the slits in your wooden crate so they are standing up straight for easy access.
  5. Turn on firepit or create fire using birch wood, if permitted where you are.
  6. Fill your cone with all your favourite toppings, head over to the fire to roast your marshmallows and enjoy!
