We’ve returned to the beach; our little corner of happiness here in the Northwest. It’s been on our calendar all year and I’ve been counting down the days. There is just something about the coastline of the Pacific Northwest that is so refreshing, so rugged and so beautiful. Needless to say, it’s the escape we’ve all been needing after a bustling few weeks of wrapping up school, moving in Mimi and Daddy’s wild work schedule.
Jemma and Max particularly love the beach. While I’ve been counting down myself, I’ve kept our trip a secret from them. Lord knows I can’t handle the constant questions – “How many days until we leave?”, “Is it tomorrow that we go?”, “When will it be beach day?”. Quickly followed by, “Are we there yet?”
When I finally broke the news, Jem’s biggest concern was my forgetting the food. All day long she’d say, “Mama, don’t forget the food for the beach!” I finally asked her why she was so worried about the beach food, to which she replied, “You know! The baby in your tummy makes your forget things!” Oh yes, I forgot! Poor girl has been the victim of some mass forgetfulness lately. Even more than the food, I knew she was worried that I’d forget these ingredients. A beach trip just isn’t a beach trip without a campfire evening and a little s’mores party!
It only seemed fitting to beach-ify our s’mores and go with something a little extra special. That’s why we decided to sprinkle our s’mores with sea salt! It was the perfect little oomph of flavor and paired lovely with the sound of the crashing waves and salty air.
To whip up your own Sea Salt S’mores you’ll need less than 10 minutes, an expertly built beach campfire by my husband … or I suppose your husband will do :) and these ingredients.
Ingredients & Supplies
- Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bars
- Honey Maid Graham Cracker Squares
- Kraft’s Jet Puffed Marshmallow
- Sea Salt
- Aluminum Foil
A helpful little FYI … Walmart has Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bars in awesome 6 packs and the Honey Maid Graham Cracker Squares are there too! I found mine on an end cap and a mid-aisle s’more display.
First things first, put someone on seagull watch. Those dudes are not scared of anything and gave us crazy s’more-loving eyes all evening long!
My preferred method of preparing s’more is perhaps a little different than most and if you’d like to join my s’more club you may :) First, snag a Honey Maid Graham Cracker Square and stack it with half a Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar. Second, sprinkle with sea salt. When everything melts, you want the sea salt to press into the chocolate and stick.
Third, add a Kraft’s Jet-Puffed Marshmallow or two and top with a second graham cracker square.
Tightly wrap your s’more in a square of foil, leaving one end open. You can now put a roasting stick in one end and quickly roast it OR tuck your s’more into the campfire embers and allow it to slowly melt to perfection.
Gently unwrap and dive in to your gooey treat as the sun sets! Taste that sea salt? Isn’t it just wonderful! Best news? If you’re not near a beach campfire this weekend, you can easily arrange your foil wrapped s’more on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes.

genius idea with the aluminum foil! and have you ever tried spreading some peanut butter on the graham cracker before assembling the s’more? i’ll warn you now – you may not want to because it’s THAT GOOD!!!
I can almost taste the sea salt on that s’more… YUM! Thanks for sharing this fabulous way to make s’mores! #client
