Happy National S’mores Day 2016 everyone! Each year National S’mores Day is observed on August 10. In celebration of this day the kids and I will be roasting delicious marshmallows.
This year I have a game changer for marshmallow roasting. I will be using my new Bernzomatic Campsite Torch to quickly and efficiently roast our marshmallows. Although I have a firepit in the backyard, lighting up a fire is not an option due to Hurricane Season in the beautiful South Florida. The rain won’t stop my celebration though.
First and foremost, remember to be safe when working with fire. Be sure to use gloves and eye protection. The Campsite Torch is easy to use, simply screw it on to a portable gas can, turn the gas nozzle to the on position and click to spark the flame. The torch is a great multi-purpose igniter that works great for lighting campfires, grills and of course roasting marshmallows to perfection.
Do you have a unique recipe you will try this National S’mores Day? Feel free to share via comments below.

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs
2 Tbsp. baking powder
2 tsp. Kosher salt
2 large grade “A” eggs, well beaten
2 cups whole milk
1 tsp. powdered ginger
4 Tbsp. unsalted butter
2 tsp. cocoa powder
16 pieces of cooked bacon
1 bag of mini marshmallows
16 oz. of chocolate sauce
½ cup powdered sugar
Bernzomatic WT2301C Campfire Torch
Bernzomatic 16 oz. Propane Camping Gas Cylinder
Standard campfire stove or open campfire with grill grate
Fork or whisk
Cast iron skillet or large sauté pan
Safety glasses and gloves
Directions: Preheat griddle over gas camping stove using Bernzomatic 16 oz. Propane Camping Gas Cylinder (medium heat) or over an open fire. Combine dry ingredients (flour, graham cracker crumbs, cinnamon, baking powder, cocoa powder and salt) until evenly distributed. Whisk in milk, egg and butter. Spray the cooking surface with pan spray, then place two pieces of bacon on the skillet and spoon pancake batter over them. Let the pancakes cook until the edges are golden brown. Flip the pancakes and finish cooking (1-2 minutes). Remove from the skillet and top the pancakes with mini marshmallows, chocolate sauce, and a dusting of powdered sugar. (PRO TIP – use the Bernzomatic WT2301C Campfire Torch to lightly torch the mini marshmallows to a golden brown before adding chocolate sauce and sugar.)
