Y’alls, this one is going to be short and sweet because I’m in Highlands, North Carolina and only have internet access while sitting at Buck’s Cafe. And apparently they are closing soon because the young guy who works behind the counter is currently sweeping around my feet.

(Why am I in Highlands you ask? Why, I was doing a book signing at the fantastic Cyrano’s Bookshop on Main Street.  And tomorrow I’ll be at Malaprop’s in Asheville, 7pm…)

Anyway. Le challenge.  Highlands, a mountain town, full of fresh air and outdoorsy people (also full of, oddly, women in fur coats in the winter) makes me thinking of camping.  And camping makes me think of S’mores  So here’s the challenge question: what is your S’mores philosophy?  Is it burning the hell out of the marshmallow, blowing out the fire, then sliding the burnt thing onto your graham cracker and Hershey bar and pretending that carcinogens taste good?  Or is it slowly, lovingly, roasting your marshmallow to a golden brown? (Guess which is my preferred method?)

Also, how many Hershey bar rectangles do you put on your S’more?  I always liked using half a bar myself, but I’m decadent like that…

Email me your answers at susanrebeccawhite@gmail.com.  Please include
1) your preferred marshmallow roasting method and
2) your preferred number of Hershey bar rectangles.

And if you–sacrilege!–use some other type of chocolate besides Hershey, let me know that, too.

The reward for your email diligence? One shiny lottery ticket with your name on it, to be entered in the drawing.

    Mmm! That much chocolate would make a killer smore! :)
    P.S. I love your contest! Brownies are amazing!

      Re: chocolate

      I know. I have got to find a giant Hershey bar to take on my next camping trip…maybe one I can rope to the top of the car.

    I prefer the golden roasting method also!
    And as for how many rectangles…at least 2, often 4! :)
