Almost any United States citizen that has gone camping knows how to make the delicious treat known as the smore. However, other countries do not know how to make smores. So if you’re going overseas, especially in South America, and plan to go camping, you might want to bring some supplies with you as they can help you make some new friends.
For those of you who do not know how to make a smore, yet you want to bring the technique with you to another culture, your going to want to practice. This can be done of course by a campfire, or fireplace, but if you do not have one of these you can also use a candle that is made of non toxic natural materials.
First take out a Marshmallow and put it onto a stick or a carving fork or some other thing like that and gently roast the marshmallow. Do not get it to close to the flame, as you will burn your marshmallow, and the point is not to catch your marshmallow on fire, but to heat it until it begins to liquefy and soften to the point where you can crush it flat between two gram crackers. Once your mash mellow begins to grow in size and turn a golden brown gently sit it down onto the chocolate, which is sitting on the first gram cracker, now take the second gram cracker and place it down onto the stack, crushing the marshmallow, and pulling the stick or other roasting utensil out of the marshmallow.
If you wish to make a super smore, do the same process, only use peanut butter to affix the chocolate onto the gram cracker.
Now, to teach a person from a foreign land you will repeat the process, except you will have to explain the ingredients. Milk chocolate is the chocolate that the people of the United States are accustomed to. Many other places use a chocolate that does not readily melt, and is to thick and dark. You might have to pack your own milk chocolate or go to a specialty store in the country you are visiting. Also many places do not have marshmallows, as the heat will make them stick together and clump. The same thing is true with chocolate, as it needs to be kept cool.
Above all remember to be patient when sharing the cultural technique of smore making, someone may criticize you for ruining good chocolate, or using inferior American ingredients, but getting angry will only breed more anger, just encourage them to try it.
