Summer is here and it’s time to enjoy a little time outdoors. Our family spends a ton of time outside from April until October – it’s just too nice to be inside.

One of our favorite things to do is to get together with friends and have BBQs in the backyard! The kids play ball, the adults sit and chat and there’s always plenty of food and drinks! Just last week we were able to grill out some hot dogs and hamburgers and make our favorite dessert – S’mores! YUM! We ALL love S’mores!

Nothing says summer more than a backyard BBQ. But after the meal is served and the conversations wind down, only coming together to experience the magic of S’mores can keep the gathering going. That’s why adding S’mores to the menu is a no-brainer!

There’s just something about them that takes me back to being a kid. Maybe it’s the ooey, gooey toasted JET-PUFFED marshmallow or maybe it’s the melted HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate bar or maybe it’s the crunchy HONEY MAID graham cracker – it could be all of it combined!

What I do know is that it’s THE BEST BBQ dessert around! BBQs in the backyard don’t have to be hard or elaborate – just grab a few friends, have everyone bring a dish and sit back and relax!

Here are my TOP 5 Favorite Tips For Throwing A Backyard BBQ!

1. Keep it simple – Hot dogs, hamburgers and S’mores are easy and everyone loves them! Plus super affordable! When it gets too complicated, you become a caterer instead of a host.

2. Smart set -up – Set up the backyard before your guests arrive. No need for tablecloths – tables and chairs are fine! Have a dedicated eating area and sitting area to keep things moving freely.

3. Fill a kiddie pool with ice – Keep things cold by adding them to small kiddie pool filled with ice. Set it on a table to keep pets and pests out of it.

4. Games – set up various areas around the backyard for games – frisbees, badminton rackets and croquet sets are good choices!

5. Keep kids busy – Set out various activities for the kids – hula hoops, bubbles, water games and more! Plus, making S’mores on the grill turns into a fun activity in and of itself!

The quintessential S’mores brand trio, HONEY MAID Grahams, HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate and JET-PUFFED Marshmallows, have joined together to make sure the easiest – and tastiest – part of your backyard gathering is the grand finale.
