Toasted Marshmallow Day takes place on August 30, 2017. A popular camping or backyard tradition in North America and Australia is the roasting or toasting of marshmallows over a campfire or other open flame. A marshmallow is placed on the end of a stick or skewer and held carefully over the fire. This creates a caramelized outer skin with a liquid, molten layer underneath.
According to individual preference, the marshmallows are heated to various degrees - from gently toasted to a charred outer layer. Often, the latter is achieved by igniting the marshmallow. The toasted marshmallow can either be eaten whole or the outer layer can be removed and consumed separately and the rest of the marshmallow toasted again. S'mores are made by placing a toasted marshmallow on a slice of chocolate which is placed between two graham crackers. These can then be squeezed together. (With material from: Wikipedia)
