National Marshmallow Toasting Day

Aug 13, 2014 02:00AM
During eleven out of the twelve months of the year, we enjoy a wide range of holidays. When we get to August, there is a major shortage of big holidays to celebrate. Perhaps that is why many Europeans take the month of August off for vacation. Perhaps it as just as well that there are no big holidays to compete with August’s very famous National Marshmallow Toasting Day. After all, how could any holiday compare with this day?

National Marshmallow Toasting Day is celebrated on August 30th every year, but we highly suggest you celebrate this holiday anytime in August, our last true month of summer, picnics, and campfires.

Enjoy today or tonight by a campfire or bonfire, toasting a big, soft, sticky and sweet marshmallow, or two, or three, or more. Summer would not be the same without a campfire and this great campfire treat. And, don't forget to make a few S'mores.

S'mores Recipe: Ingredients: • Chocolate candy bar • Honey graham crackers • Marshmallows Instructions: • Break off a square of graham cracker • Add a piece of chocolate. • Toast a big marshmallow over the campfire. • Add the hot marshmallow. • Top it with another graham cracker. • Eat, savor and enjoy! Note: You can make S'mores in the microwave. Just put them together and pop them into the microwave on high for 15 to 20 seconds. (Information and recipe courtesy of
