We’re coming close to July 4th. People everywhere will be BBQ-ing and be drinking to our nation’s freedom. There isn’t anything more 4th of July than a chocolaty, marshmallowy, s’more! Us toddler moms are always a little concerned about littles around an open flame, so here are 3 ways to include them in the s’more fun without the danger and my top 11 all-American, USA, red, white, and blue songs to include on your BBQ playlist.
These s’more dips are super easy to make and pack all the flavor of the favorite combo.
What you’ll need:
Graham Crackers, Marshmallow spread, Mini Chocolate Chips
Break up the graham crackers and dip in the marshmallow. Then dip the marshmallow in the chocolate chips. Pretty simple. Pretty good!
Marshmallow S’more Pops
These mallow pops are so fun to make. My toddler thought they were the best treat ever!
What you’ll need:
Marshmallows, Marshmallow spread, Chocolate sprinkles, Graham crackers, and Paper straws
Smash up few graham crackers. Put a marshmallow on straw as the stem of the pop. Dip the top of the mallow into the mallow spread, then the flat top into a bowl of chocolate sprinkles. Then roll the sides around in the graham cracker crumbs you made. Refrigerate or serve promptly as the marshmallow spread does start to drip.
S’more Trail Mix
Trail mix is always a hit with the little kids. Especially when you set up a trail mix bar where they can make it themselves.
What you’ll need
S’more goldfish mix, Mini marshmallows, and Red, white and blue m&m’s (we used peanut butter for extra flavor) You can add any variety of things for more options. Like popcorn, nuts, cereal, pretzels, or other crackers.
Have a fun and safe holiday! Try adding these songs to your playlist.
