Making s'mores around a campfire was a favorite summertime activity for me as a kid. I still love these sticky treats made up of roasted marshmallows and melted chocolate sandwiched between graham crackers. That gooey goodness makes for a great treat!

My oddball kids though don't have much of a liking for s'mores because the chocolate can get to be real sticky and messy when making them. So they tend to just roast marshmallows on a stick. That leaves me alone eating s'mores during our summer camping trips which bums me out.

This summer that may be changing though thanks to Stuffed Puffs! These are marshmallows stuffed with chocolate to allow making s'mores easier and not as much of a mess. By putting the chocolate inside the marshmallow, the chocolate melts while the marshmallow toasts creating a perfect s'more combination. Problem solved! Why didn't someone think of doing this sooner?!


Stuffed Puffs, which are available at WalMart, sent us a nice s'more making kit to try out this innovative idea. The kids are actually excited about making some s'mores now. I have to give a Geek Daddy nod of approval to Michael Tierney who made this idea a reality.

"The idea was born around a campfire," Tierney, who graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, told "It is a simple idea, but very hard to execute, which why it hasn't been done before. I spent seven years figuring out a way to make this happen that breaks the rules of traditional candy making."

"Stuffed Puffs is an easy new way to make a good old-fashioned American treat," Tierney added. "But s'mores are only our starting point. We are already at work on different flavor and coating combinations that will make Stuffed Puffs much more than just a campfire-season product."


Stuffed Puffs are now available at Walmart stores across the United States. They cost $3.98 for a 10oz bag. Thanks to Stuffed Puffs it looks like I'll enjoy eating s'mores along with my whole family the next time we go camping. In fact with Stuffed Puffs making s'mores is so easy we might just start enjoying them at home around the backyard grill or living room fireplace. I have a feeling my family is going to be stocking up on Stuffed Puffs during our Walmart shopping trips.
