There are certain thing we always have when we're camping. S'mores are one of those. A few years ago, I even served S'mores for Breakfast.
This year, on the last day of the trip, we had to use all the firewood...and eat all the s'mores ingredients. "Mom, we have to make all the s'mores. You never let us have s'mores at home." True.
The boys decided to try a variation that their friend Trinity had made during one of our Halloween camping trips: marshmallows (roasted or not), dipped in melted chocolate, and rolled in crushed graham crackers. So, they called it 'The Trinity' - named for their friend...and because it's the holy trinity of camping foods.
Here's the original! Her dad sent this to me!

My boys fashioned a double boiler and melted the chocolate! This isn't so much a precise recipe as a process.
- chocolate, broken into chunks
- graham crackers, crushed
- Also needed: roasting sticks, double boiler
Place crushed graham crackers in a shallow bowl for easy rolling. Melt chocolate in the double boiler. Keep warm.
Toast marshmallows - or not. Roll marshmallows in chocolate. Dip in graham crackers. Eat immediately!
You can see our variations. I dipped one side only; D dipped both ends; and R covered every bit of the marshmallow. Jake just waited by the fire to "test" all of our creations. What fun!
