With heat indexes well over 100 all weekend, building a fire in the fireplace was right out of the question.
We didn’t really want to go outside, either. Even at night.
We wanted s’mores, though, and although I am sure we’re not the first to hit upon this, it was a novel idea to both of us: roast the marshmallows over candles.
Fondue forks make an excellent way to hold the marshmallows over the flame. They don’t get quite as hot all the way through as they do over a big fire, but this method is fairly effective. And delicious!
