S'mores Gift Basket

A basket filled with all of the ingredients necessary for making s'mores is a practical gift. The tasty campfire treat--whose name originates from the idea that they taste so good you'll want "some more"--first appeared in a 1927 book titled "Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts." Choose a basket and line it with a clean dish towel (look in crafts stores for an assortment of baskets). Add a package of graham crackers, a bag of large marshmallows, a large chocolate bar, and roasting sticks tied up with a length of natural twine. To make the roasting sticks, you'll need 3-foot long hardwood sticks, approximately 1/2 inch in diameter. With a pocketknife, whittle one of the ends down to form a point for skewering a marshmallow. Smooth down any rough edges with a piece of sandpaper. Using a small drill bit, drill a hole in the opposite end of the stick to create a hanging loop--you'll always know where to look for your sticks. Cut a 12-inch length of waxed-linen twine, thread it through the hole, and tie a knot to create a hanging loop.
