some campfire roasting forks (and these with the gingham bag) last week so that we could use them for a Cub Scout bonfire and s'mores party. My secret hope is that our family will eventually have a fire pit of our own, around which we can use these adorable and useful sticks. I was also thinking that campfire roasting sticks would make a cute gift for a housewarming, a family present, or a grab bag -- all packaged up with the s'more fixings.
I don't actually enjoy s'mores, but I do love a nice roasted marshmallow. Melty on the inside and carbon crusty on the outside. A burnt marshmallow, if you will. This culinary delight is easy to produce if you have a roasting stick, a gas stove, and a husband who's out of town (and might give you some grief about this sort of thing were he around). I'm not sure you could get a golden brown marshmallow with this in-house method. Even when I thought I was giving my giant marshmallow some clearance, it was igniting. Ignite. Extinguish. Rotate. Repeat.
One bonus to charring your marshmallow at home: you can plate it and eat it with a fork.
