No Campfire? No Problem! Make a Portable S'mores Fire Pot

No Campfire? No Problem! Make a Portable S'mores Fire Pot

I grew up as a Girl Scout and did my fair share of camping, and the s'mores were always my favorite part. Even as an adult, I would toast s'mores on my gas stove, but sadly my current home has an electric stove, leaving me without a makeshift campire to make s'mores. Rather than letting that stop me, I made this portable s'mores fire pot with Sterno ethanol gel canisters and a planter pot! 

 This is an incredibly easy project to whip up with a pot and rocks, but it's the perfect way to enjoy homemade s'mores with the same feeling of a campfire. As long as you burn the gel in a safe environment, it's completely safe and easy to use. Get ready to make a lot of s'mores!

Materials:

  • Sterno ethanol gel canisters
  • Ceramic pot, heat safe
  • Rocks

Step

Place any larger rocks at the bottom of the pot. Then add small rocks until it is about 3/4 full.

Step

Carefully insert a Sterno ethanol gel canister into the center of the rocks.

Step

To use, carefully pry off the top of the canister with a screwdriver. Inside is a gel. When ready to toast marshmallows, light the gel with a long-stemmed lighter. The fire may not be easily visible because of the size. Stick marshmallows onto skewers and toast over the open flame just like a regular fire! 

Step

To extinguish the flame, carefully place the lid back on top. This suffocates the fire and puts it out almost immediately. Note, Sterno canisters are intended for single-use.

Sandwich the toasted marshmallows between chocolate and graham crackers and you can enjoy the best parts of camping right from your home!
