S'mores in a Bag

S'mores in a Bag

Brownie Troop 1169 of Scottsboro, Alabama, concocted s'mores in a fire-free (and mess-free) way by using ziplock bags and tinkering a bit with the usual recipe. In addition to being gooey and delicious, this variation on a classic snack comes with a lesson about resourcefulness and ingenuity. "The girls not only had fun, but they also learned that there's often more than one way to do something," says troop leader Martha Avans.


  • Graham crackers
  • Marshmallow crème
  • Chocolate chips


  1. To make one serving, place a graham cracker in a quart-size ziplock bag. Seal it and crush the cracker.
  2. Add 2 heaping spoonfuls of marshmallow crème and about 1/4 cup of chocolate chips. Reseal, then squeeze and knead the bag to mix the ingredients together.
  3. To eat, just snip off a corner of the bag and squeeze out the sweet treat.
