Have S’more with Stackermallows

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATS TO THE WINNERS: heidij1304@, alancaster1223@, pattywheeler@

This week the kids and I had a fun little lunchtime dessert. S’mores! We don’t have a fire pit and I wasn’t feeling motivated to turn on the grill. But, these indoor s’mores came together in less than 5 minutes. So, gooey and yummy.

One of the things that made them come together so easily were the new stackable marshmallows called Stackermallows from Kraft. These are perfect for making s’mores in the oven because you don’t have to fuss with rolling and wobbling marshmallows. These babies just sit there, nice and calm like.

Like me.

We used whatever chocolate I had lying around, which would include a large Special Dark bar that I bought on clearance for 50 cents, a random KitKat bar, and three mini Hershey bars from last October.

Yes, really.

But, you know what? No one cared. And the chocolate didn’t even have that dusty white stuff that old chocolate has. So, we were good.

Very good.

Everybody enjoyed his “lunch dessert” in all its sticky, chocolatey, dripping goodness. One of the easiest sweet treats I’ve pulled off in awhile.

You can try out Stackermallows, too.

Three LifeasMOM readers will each win a bag of Stackermallows from Kraft.

  1. Well, I’d have to say hot cocoa. But this time of year? S’mores win. (By the way, did you know that dusty white film is called “bloom” and is ugly, but harmless? The things you learn when your dad is the director of engineering for Nestle… ;))

  2. Roasted Marshmallow Milkshakes!

  3. My favorite use for marshmallows is bringing out sheer joy in my 4 year old; the child LOVES marshmallows and will happily eat them until he gets sick (although I always stop him before he gets to that point).

  4. Honestly my favorite thing to do with marshmallows is to eat them by themselves during most of the year, and then during Jan/Feb when it is really cold, use them in hot chocolate. I also love putting them in homemade snack mix.

  5. Oooh, I want to try these.

    My current favorite use of mini marshmallows is as potty treats when we run out of something more exciting. Big brother gets one for pooping, and little brother gets one for cheering him on. =)

  6. Marshmallow? It’s a food group right? LOL I love them alone or warmed by a campfire. S’mores are heavenly!

  7. If I open a bag of marshmallows for a purpose such as smores, I will just eat any that are left. I don’t know why, but I just love them.

  8. S’mores of course! We’re going camping later in the month….these would be perfect.

  9. Rebecca says:

    My favorite place (use) for marshmallows is in my belly :) on a frugal note I have a bag of bunny marshmallows that are flat and colorful I think they would make fun smores too. And we know these kinds of shaped mashmallows go on clearance after the holidays :) I will be thinking ahead next time :)

  10. Eckert S says:

    I like to toast them in the toaster oven and enjoy just the toasted marshmallow. Don’t get me wrong, I like chocolate and graham crackers just as much as the next chocoholic, but the marshmallow is much better savored by itself instead of being overpowered by the other smores ingredients!

  11. I really don’t like marshmallows, except when they’re in smores so that’s my favorite use for them!

  12. susan t says:

    We use them to make rice krispy treats.

  13. Marshmallow fights with the kids!!!

  14. If you were ever a part of Young Life, you know the game called “Chubby Bunnies”. It sounds gross to me now, but in high school it was totally hilarious. Whoever could stuff the most marshmallows in his/her mouth and still say “Chubby Bunnies” was the winner.

  15. We had a S’mores bar for a family gathering last weekend, and I used the StackerMallows! I saw them online, and looked for them in the store (I found them at Target). They are tooooo cooool! For me, it adds just enough marshmallow gooeyness (is that a word??) to the chocolate and graham crackers. (We also had coconut, raspberries, and strawberries if you wanted to make your smores fancy – so fun!)

  16. I like to just roast them and eat them off the skewer.

  17. Jen Logan says:

    We put mini marshmallows in a “mixed-up” snack for the kids but smores are my fave!

  18. My favorite use of Marshmallows – besides s’mores – are for Rice Krispy Treats! Yum!

  19. Jessica says:

  24. Rice krispie treats. but my 4 year old loves to just eat them and she’s never had smores. I think she’d love them.

  37. Those rock! we just had s’mores last night, but all I had were the crummy regular shape marshmallows. I’ll be scanning the grocery store shelves for those babies the next time I shop!

  38. We like to make chocolate covered marshmallows.

  39. I’ve always loved roasting marshmallows over a campfire but indoor s’mores have recently become popular in our house!

  40. We made indoor s’mores using stackermallows last week. They were really good. My three-year-old son calls s’mores “fathers and sons” because he ate them at a fathers and sons camp-out. So cute!

  41. Diane G says:

    Marshmellow are great in any food. But my family is partial to smores and Rice Krispie treats.

  66. Jennifer says:

    S’mores are by far my favorite use of marshmallows! We made them in the oven last night and my (3yr old) little girl asked for peanut butter on her graham cracker. Let me just say, I may never go back to just chocolate & marshmallow filling. It was so ooey-gooey good!

    Also my mom makes something called Super Brownies that involve brownie and marshmallow and then a frosting on top. We have those once a year but they are good!

  91. Melissa says:

  100. Ashley F says:

    I love to roast them, but my favorite way to use them is in ice cream. I love the way they sort of freeze up and get chewy. Every time we go to Cold Stone or Marble Slab I always get sweet cream with mini marshmallows (sometimes I add in strawberries). It is so yummy!

  101. We love marshmallows by themselves over a fire. I NEVER thought of the oven!

  102. Tracey Bridges says:

    We love to use marshmallows to make Rice Krispee treats. Thanks for the giveaway!

  103. These look fun! We’re always up for sampling a different shaped marshmellow! How fun to make s’mores without searching out a campsite. A family we know just browns them over their stove top I assume just using a fork! Easy peasy! K.

  104. Rice krispie treats!

  105. Hot cocoa in the winter, roasted over the fire pit in the summer.:)

  106. Definitely s’mores. Our kids go crazy for them!

  122. Andrea D says:

    My fave has to be s’mores, or just plain right after roasting them over the fire….mmmmm, it’s making me hungry….

  123. Jen Fitzpatrick says:

    I didn’t know they had these marshmallows! They would have been easier than the giant campfire ones we used last night, but probably not as gooey and messy (which the kids LOVE the messy part!). We definitely use a lot of marshmallows for smores!

  124. Definitely s’mores.

  125. Mary Beth says:

    Rice Krispie Bars! oh. And S’Mores.

  126. I love marshmallows as a quick treat fix when I REALLY need something sweet. I like to put whatever kind I have in a mug with a couple of chocolate chips and microwave them until the marshmallows almost overflow, then stop the microwave just in time. So good and quick!

  127. Best use of marshmellows is probably homemade rice krispie treats.

  128. Catherine Prewett says:

    I love them in Hot Chocolate!

  129. We just love marshmallows. My kids will just eat them out of the bag. I live marshmallows in my fruit salads, hot cocoa, and s’mores. My son is very excited we built a fire pit and he has requested s’mores. We will be making them this weekend.

  130. I LOVE roasted marshmallows!!! Rice Krispy treats is also another oone of my favorites!! :)

  131. Rebecca says:

  142. Kim Thebiay says:

    I love to give my boys a summer treat in the winter. We make S’mores in the winter by putting a Graham carcker in the microwave with a marshmellow on the top for 10 seconds then we add the chocolate square and the second graham cracker. YUM!!!

  143. I like a roasted (or microwave’d) marshmallow on a graham cracker, without the chocolate. Yum!
