Summer Fun: Personal Marshmallow Roasting Pot

Last weekend I asked the boys if they would like to roast marshmallows. There was much cheering and a rousing YES!!

We have a fire pit but we have not really used it yet this year because it has been really dry in our area.  I decided to surprise the boys with their own personal marshmallow roasting pot!

What you need:

  • Terra cotta pots enough for each person who wants to roast marshmallows~I found mine at the local thrift store for 25 cents each. You can easily find them in stores like Walmart or garden centers.
  • charcoal~I picked up mine during one of my CVS shopping deals. I picked up the kind where all you need is are matches or a lighter to light.
  • Aluminum foil
  • matches or a lighter

Line the inside of a terra cotta pot with foil. Drop in a few charcoal briquettes. Light charcoal. Wait for the flames to go out. The charcoal will have a white appearance. Start roasting your marshmallows!

Yum! Roasted marshmallows! You can either roast them for s’mores or you can do like we do and just eat them!
