You Will Need
- A campfire
- A package of medium to large marshmallows
- A roasting fork or long wooden stick
Make sure the fire is perfect for roasting
Check the fire and make sure it has areas that have burned down to embers. They should be orange, but not bursting with flame.
Prepare a fork or stick
Choose a marshmallow and place it at the end of a roasting fork or a long wooden stick.
Position the marshmallow over the coals
Place your marshmallow approximately 3 to 5 inches above the hot coals. Now slowly turn the stick so that the marshmallow browns evenly on all sides and gets warm and gooey inside. This should take about 15 to 30 seconds.
