Have you seen these build your own s’mores bars that have been popping up lately?
The idea is really simple. You start with your basic s’mores ingredients and then, add in a few extras, like almond butter and peanut butter cups. When you’re ready to serve, you place all the components on a tray or platter and allow guests to build their own s’mores.
My smallest guest likes her marshmallows untoasted and all the components separate.
It’s a fun way to spend an evening and requires zero cooking – unless you count toasting the marshmallows.
In ours, I used:
- Sliced strawberries
- Sliced bananas
- Almond butter
- Peanut butter
- Cookies and cream chocolate bars
- Milk chocolate bars
- Peanut butter cups
But, really, you could customize this any way you like. I think jams, raspberries and dark chocolate would also be wonderful additions.
What’s your favorite way to eat a s’more?

At the Odle house, we eat pork chops once a week. I’ve had my tried and true method for over year, but recently switched it up. As soon as Ellie had this new version, she announced she liked these much better. I liked them too, but for different reasons. They taste great, but their true…
For years, I have hated cauliflower. In fact, I couldn’t stand the smell of it, but something happened. I discovered I do like it – coated in cheddar. This 4-ingredient side is a great example of how something healthy can be improved with just a touch of something decadent. Cauliflower is roasted at a high…
This recipe is a family favorite. Smoky and addictive, these thighs have Ellie eating chicken. CHICKEN. The protein she dreads just a little less than fish. (Keegan and I also love it.) No one goes hungry. And, this 15 minute main dish is fast and flavorful. Smoked paprika, garlic powder and onion powder are rubbed…
Last week, I shared a 15 minute meal plan builder perfect for hectic nights when you don’t even have time for takeout. Today, I’m talking about a favorite 15 minute main dish. To prepare it, tilapia is cooked in a non-stick skillet, alongside lime, butter and fresno chilis. Sautéed over a medium heat, the butter…
In my 20’s, meals could take hours to make, because there wasn’t a small person who lived with me that cared how quickly she was fed. But now, there is. She also comes with 1,000 activities, which means we need meals to happen quickly. So today, I’m spilling secrets on how I make dinner happen…
I'm Lane. I’m the wife to an engineer, the mama to Ellie and a small business owner. I love trashy T.V., good books, a little pampering and great meals.
