Too bad they aren't back to back days so we can have one big, continuous s'more to last us all 48 hours!

All situations have a bright side - even pest infestations, but that is a story for another day.

One way is popping it in the microwave, but, using the microwave should be the last resort, as it will not be as good as it could be. A stove burner, leftover charcoal flame from the grill, a fire, naturally, and if worse comes to worse use a lighter! On a more romantic note, you can try toasting a marshmallow over a candle.
