Summer is quickly approaching and we are definitely counting down the days here! My favorite thing about summer is how relaxing it is- no school lunches to pack, no alarm clocks to set, no homework to get done, and less laundry to do since the boys live in swim trunks and flip flops all summer. For me summer is also all about easy meals and quick snacks, especially when we go camping, which is something we love to do. We just got a camping trailer this Spring (yippee!) so we're busy planning our summer camping trips.
And I definitely have a favorite part about camping... it's the FOOD!
So get ready and pack your s'mores ingredients! Seriously, camping is all about fun foods. I plan out all of our meals ahead of time so that I make sure I have all of the ingredients ready to go. It means less time for me in our trailer kitchen and more time relaxing with my family. I ALWAYS bring fun food with us when camping. And remember to pack plenty of easy to grab snacks.
Sometimes I set out healthy snacks like a platter full of sliced fruit and veggie sticks, but sometimes I like to get some fun camping snacks. They're easy to grab, the kids love them, and they're on sale right now at Stater Bros. Markets. I just set out a tray of snacks and then I get to relax. Aren't those mini Coca-Cola™ cans the cutest? I like them because they are little, so there won't be half full cans sitting around.
And speaking of S'mores, it's always fun to come up with fun variations of S'mores, like these and these. These cute little S'mores are super fun because they don't even require a fire (perfect if you have little ones and don't want to deal with the stress of little ones by a fire).
Here's how to make these Mini Nilla Wafer S'mores:
- one package Mini Nilla Wafers
-chocolate buttercream frosting (use this recipe and add 3-4 teaspoons of unsweetened cocoa powder)
Spread a teaspoon of frosting on a Mini Nilla Wafer. Sprinkle with mini marshmallows and top with another Mini Nilla Wafer. Enjoy!
Everything is cuter in mini form, right?
