The fact that every Texas summer generally brings back fond memories of sitting around a campfire isn’t lost on us. We love camping in the Texas Hill Country and beyond. Just as much as the next Texan, we enjoy our backyard firepits as well, and that usually entails some outdoor cooking in the process. But when the meal is all said-and-done, the dessert takes center-stage. Nine times out of ten, that will be s’mores. And Joanna Gaines knows a thing or two about that.

Shared on, the blog curated by Joanna Gaines, Indoor + Outdoor S’mores are a treat that can be had either in the great outdoors, or within the comforts and confines of home. So, for those of you who love all the taste but don’t necessarily love all the “outdoors,” this is for you. Although a recipe generally calls for food ingredients, one key ingredient to this is experiencing it with family and friends. It seems that the joy of loving s’mores is sharing it with others. Can you image sitting around a fire by yourself, roasting marshmallows, making s’mores, and then trying to have a good time knowing that you’re the only one who’ll be eating them? Oh wait… Well, maybe that last part is an alright scenario for some, but for others, the concept of summertime fun with a group is the best kind. Now you can take the process indoors for those temperamental Texas weather days.
