August 30th is National Toasted Marshmallow Day

During eleven out of the  twelve months of the year, we enjoy a wide range of holidays. When we get to August, there is a major shortage of big holidays to celebrate. Perhaps that is why many Europeans take the month of August off for vacation.

Perhaps it as just as well that there are no big holidays to compete with National Marshmallow Toasting Day. After all, how could any holiday compare with this day!?!

Enjoy today or tonight by a campfire or bonfire, toasting a big, soft, sticky and sweet marshmallow, or two, or three, or….. Summer would not be the same without a campfire and this great campfire treat.Summer is short. Summer is good. So enjoy it while it is still here. Toast a marshmallow and forget about everything else.

And don’t forget to make a few S’mores. Click on photo above for easy recipe


  • 1 bag large marshmallows
  • Sticks or Skewers ( one per person)
  • Hot Fire


Push one or two marshmallows onto stick or skewer. Hold over hot flame just until marshmallow begins to turn golden and melt inside.

If it begins to fall off stick, turn upside down quickly and have a dish ready to catch it!

Allow to cool for a minute before eating because the filling is hot.
