    Wire coat hangers conduct heat which would equal very hot fingers. :eek:

    ;) yes and make sure you don't eat directly from the stick. We learned this the very hard way when roasting marshmallows as kiddos.

    Graham crackers sandwiched with marshmallows and melted chocklit and covered in more chocklit.

    Go to 50s Prime Time for the best version ever. :D

    You could use a long toasting fork that is usually carried in the outdoor cooking sections of Target and places like walmart.

    You roast the marshmallow then place it hot on a graham cracker half, top it with a portion of chocolate and then another graham cracker half. The heat from the marshmallow melts the chocolate a bit and you eat it like a sandwich.

    Personally, I find them unbearably sweet, and a little icky. :sorry: I don't like marshmallow though, so that tells you why.

    It's best to have a thin chocolate if possible. If the the bar is too thick it won't melt well and you have a clunky mess. :lol:

    If you buy chocolate coated graham crackers that saves having to deal with the chocolate candy bar.

    But they still are unbearably sweet and a little icky. :eek:

    Oh, and never use wire coat hangers! The paint (or other coating) on them is very toxic. Same for using "sticks" that you find in the wild. You'd better know your trees or you could end up with something toxic, too. Plus, stripping a tree for a marshmallow stick is probably heavily frowned upon at Disney. :yes:

    Ok then...is this the point where I admit I have a collapsible wiener roaster? It operates a bit like the walking sticks vision impaired folks use...it fits right in my bag and then unfolds and locks to the proper length. What can I say? We did a lot of camping in my youth.

    Sounds like that 'dog roaster might just come in handy. You could roast those marshmallows, fill the pit left by the roaster (I'm picturing a larger "stabbing" end on it than a toasting fork?) with chocolate ghirardelli fudge sauce and smoosh it between those aforementioned graham crackers. :yes:

    Really? uh oh this explains A LOT about me now........

    I'd rather just have the toasted marshmallows.....

    Another yummy graham cracker treat is to take a graham cracker, spread a layer of peanut butter and then add sliced bananas. MMMM yummy!!!

    This is a graham cracker. They are also used in a lot of pie crusts.

    The graham cracker was developed in 1822 in Bound Brook, New Jersey, by Presbyterian minister Rev. Sylvester Graham. Though called a cracker, it is sweet rather than salty and so bears some resemblance to what Americans call a cookie and the British call a biscuit. The true graham cracker is made with graham flour, which is unsifted and coarsely ground wheat flour.

    Thanks Johnie.
    Now that I have the full picture, I reckon that I`ll stick to the old fashioned marshmallow`s on their own!

    They are similar but not quite the same as a digestive biscuit.
