More thoughts on making these DIY Marshmallow Roasting Sticks

EXRA:  Get creative with your electrical tape colors and designs; there are so many colors of electrical tape now. I often grab decorative duct tape and add it to the bottom of the handle so that each person can identify their stick.

Storing: When you are all done roasting, remove the medal from the cardboard tube, squeeze the open prongs together and insert them into the tube for storage until you’re ready for a future roast.

Washing:  I let the sticks cool and the marshmallow that’s left behind.  Simply wash with dish detergent and a scrub brush, it comes right off.

How we make our S’mores:

We love a traditional S’more with a roasted marshmallow, graham cracker and chocolate bar, but we have discovered and love a few other flavors as well.  Here are a few ingredients to pick up next time you are at your local Price Chopper/Market 32 Supermarket to make and try.  Experimenting with S’more flavors makes for great fireside conversation with friends and adds that extra touch family fun; it’s all about making memories.

  • Roasted marshmallow, graham cracker and Reese’s peanut butter cup.
  • Roasted marshmallow, chocolate graham crackers and either Ghirardelli Mint Chocolate Squares or Peppermint Patties.

Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • Wire hanger(s)
  • Electrical tape
  • Wire snips
  • Marshmallows


    1. Using the wire snips separate the medal part of the hanger from the cardboard tube by clipping as close to the tube as possible.  You want to keep as much of the medal intact that you can.  There will be a little medal hook left behind in the cardboard tube.  Sometimes this pops out, sometimes you have to clip the cardboard.

    2. Straighten the hanger hook as much as possible.

    3. Insert the straightened hook part of the wire hanger into the cardboard tube.  The portion of the hanger with the prongs will be exposed and coming out of the tube; ultimately they will be your marshmallow roasters.

    4. Cover the cardboard tube with electrical tape to protect it from the fire!
