So I had grand plans for our weekend. They included camping (when I was feeling ambitious) or at least spending a couple hours into the late evening at the camp ground and roasting s’mores + enjoying a summer night outdoors. The weather wasn’t on board though, and we found ourselves snuggled up for most of the weekend listening to the thunder and watching the lightning through the windows.

But when you’re set on having s’mores, nothing will quite satisfy that need for a roasted marshmallow. So, between storms on Saturday we resisted the urge to set up the tent on the back porch but did haul out our cooler I’d packed with drinks for the weekend + made this incredibly easy smores pot to pretend we went camping after all.

First off, MAKE THIS SMORES POT right now. Or after a quick trip to Lowes (or Amazon from your couch), if you don’t happen to have a terra cotta pot and charcoal lying around. All I did was line a pot (like this one) with tin foil and fill with charcoal and presto, we had our own little fire pit perfect for the back deck. The pot was less than a dollar so even if we never use it again – totally worth it.

  3. I really want to do this! So just terra cotta pots, foil covering the inside with match light charcoal, and the supplies for the smores?! Wow! Sounds super easy! I am concerned though with the table they will be on? Did anyone have problems?

  4. Genius Idea! Is it possible to use a bigger pot or would that have a different effect?

  6. do you have to use charcoal? Can you use sticks or small pieces of wood?

  7. We use E.L.Fudge Stripe Cookies for the most part. But Thin Mint and Samoa Girl Scout Cookies are also amazing! I am wondering if you could use wood or like bark chips and maybe some small wood cookies. I’d love to have these at Center Pieces for my future wedding (which we plan on doing camping immediately following the ceremony and reception), with S’mores fixings available after dinner and signs warning to please not leave children unattended.
