AMY JO IRWIN: Peach Crumble S’mores
1/4 of a ripe yellow peach
1 large marshmallow
1 full graham cracker (divided in two)
Dark chocolate bar or chips (optional)
-Roast peach slices and marshmallows over the campfire.
-Make like a tradition s’more piling and squishing between the graham cracker, or throw the roasted marshmallow and peaches in a bowl, crumble the graham cracker on top.
-Dark chocolate is optional if you are craving that component.
This was born out of a need to use up some peaches on our family’s trip to Yellowstone last year. They needed to be used before they were a mushy mess, and we love grilled peaches at home. We thought why not roast over the fire with some marshmallows for dessert–heaven! Thanks for letting us share this!
(I believe the roasting sticks are Coleman product!)

We went camping at Pearyginn Lake last year in August when camp fires are likely to be banned due to extreme fire danger–in this case they were most definitely banned. We knew our kids would want s’mores so my wife and I thought we could do somewhat of a reverse s’more. We put out little bowls of chopped nuts, mini-chocolate chips, mini M&Ms, and most importantly crushed graham cracker. We melted chocolate and put the marshmallows on skewers, then let them dip them in chocolate and roll in the graham cracker and/or other toppings. (Mini M&Ms were a little heavy.) We had our trailer so we had access to a microwave and a freezer to get them to set easy, but you could melt the chocolate in a mason jar in a pan of water. You can let s’more pops set (which is hard for kids) or eat them all gooey and messy making it more fun for the kids. Not a truly original idea but our kids really enjoyed them and still talk about them.
