Indoor S'mores and GIVEAWAY

UPDATE: Congrats to Kristiina who was randomly chosen as the s'mores giveaway winner by Enjoy! And thanks to everyone for playing!

The weather is turning a bit cooler here, which means our fireplace is getting plenty of use. Luckily Dan makes the best fires. Not only do the fires keep us nice and toasty, but it gives us an excuse to have indoor s'mores!

A couple of years ago I went to a work conference and met a bunch of Australians. The hotel we were staying in had a massive double-sided fireplace in the lobby. I off-handedly remarked that it would be the perfect place to make s'mores. They had no idea what I was talking about. It turned out that they don't have s'mores in Australia. Nor do they have them in England. So sad, right?

So, if you're reading this and wondering what the heck I'm talking about, s'mores are a great American tradition. They consist of roasted marshmallows and Hershey's chocolate bars sandwiched between two graham crackers. Now, if you don't know what a s'more is, you probably also haven't heard of graham crackers. They are, what the Brits would call, a biscuit (cookie) made from graham flour. They are sweet and crunchy. Sometimes the crumbs are are used as the crust of cheesecake.

Here's where the giveaway comes in! I think everyone should have s'mores at least once so I'm going to give someone a "s'mores kit," including a box of graham crackers, a pack of marshmallows, and a bar of Hershey's chocolate. Leave me a comment with your name and the words "Give Me S'mores!" and I'll choose a winner at random. The giveaway is open to anyone in the world and will close at 5:00pm GMT on Sunday, October 13.

Good luck!
