We had S'more Much Fun!

For my son's second birthday, we had an Alaskan outdoor theme party, and I thought since I have so much to share from his Birthday Party, I would start with the food! To start, though, I want to say a huge THANK YOU to my mother-in-law for helping with the food part. If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't have been able to get everything done!

And what would be the main food at an Alaskan Party for a 2-year old? Ooey, Gooey, Yummy S'mores!!! If it could be made into a s'more I think we had it. Of course I had so many ideas of things to make, it just wasn't possible to do it all.

His cake was non-traditional this year. There wasn't any buttercream frosting or bright fun decorations. Instead he had a Giant S'more Cake! It was so fun and it looked great on the S'more Bar Table. It didn't hurt that it was super yummy. The Giant S'mores Cake Recipe can be found: here

Brown Sugar Spice Cookies with a Maple Syrup Glaze cut out in the shape of a moose head. One of my all-time favorite fall cookies. When these bake the whole house smells like fall! These are from one of my favorite cookbooks from Gooseberry Patch "Old-Fashioned Country Cookies" it can be found here

All the hard work of these cupcakes including the meringue icing was thanks to my mother-in-law. There a few steps but worth it. You can find the S'mores Cupcake Recipe here

We also had cookies. S'mores Cookies Recipe  here

My favorite, beside the cake was the S'mores Bars. I forgot to take a picture of them, but I could eat a whole pan of these guys no kidding! Be sure and check the recipe out here.

For the main meal we roasted hot dogs and had chili to make chili dogs or just have a bowl of chili to warm up with! The chili recipe that I used can be found here  (I modified it slightly to appeal to the varying palates and tastes) We also had hot chocolate & homemade marshmallows and hot spiced apple cider to keep us warm. 

Here is the birthday cake on the s'mores table. 

We had all different kinds of chocolate bars and caramels to make up all kinds of s'mores. 

We also had all different varieties of graham crackers: regular Honey Graham, Chocolate & Cinnamon. (Not pictured)

And of course we had several different kinds of marshmallows. We had the Jumbo ones, regular size, mini's, and strawberry. I looked for chocolate mallows because I wanted a chocolate, chocolate, chocolate s'more but I couldn't find them, oh well maybe next time! :-)

I'm pretty sure my little guy ended up loving his party and the s'mores! He is still talking about the fire and the marshmallows!

Oh yeah, it was an ooey, gooey, good time!
