Cutting aluminum cans will give the metal very sharp edges. Sharp edges can cut skin. You may want to use gloves to mitigate any risk. Hot coals also pose a number of risks. Be aware of risk posed by open fires. This project should only be attempted with adult supervision and adequate training. Use of this video content is at your own risk.

Project History & More Info:

This was probably one of my kids favorite projects, because they got to eat the results. Even my wife was impressed with my mad cooking skills :) And I can't tell you how hard it was not to eat the s'mores right away while filming them. So tempting!

When roasting marshmallows for s'mores, I had taken note of how difficult it was to get them nice and gooey without catching them on fire. Most times, the marshmallows spontaneously light off, and burn a black skin of carbon all around the outside. Although this is fun, but doesn't taste that great.

In this project I attempted to take a common campfire item, like a drink can, and modify it into a roaster, that would soften chocolate and marshmallows to s'more perfection.

I was really happy with the results, as well as how versatile the roaster turned out to be. It can be used in a lot of different ways, and definitely helps mitigate the risk of marshmallows catching on fire, and chocolate that falling off when trying to balance it over a fire.
