How to: Make Bacon S'Mores (No Campfire Necessary)

To be filed in your "Why didn't I think of that?" pile, two words:

Bacon. S'mores. 

Yes, of course. The smokiness of bacon echoes the campfire without needing hot coals, the salty/sweet combo, the textural contrast of something chewy mixed with melty chocolate, fluffy 'shmallows, and crunchy crackers.

How To: Make Melty, Amazing S'mores...Sans Campfire.

IMG_0215I'm so crazy pumped for my camping and canoeing trip this holiday weekend that I can barely sit still. And, oh, buddy, you better believe I'll be making some smokey and toasty s'mores over the campfire.

I get to be around one around once a year, which is about how many s'mores a year I can stand, so it all works out.

If you wanna join me on my trip, I'll gladly make you one with my reknown two level heat technique, but if you're staying urban this summer - don't worry. Here's two tricks for making great melty s'mores that are totally worth the calories, at home.
