Tableside S'mores, yo.

In honor of National S’mores Day we went to the experts for some advice on how to make a perfectly melted mess of chocolate-y goodness and fluffy ‘mallows (say that five times fast!).

The answer? Well according to s’mores guru Chelsea Von Peacock at Halcyon Southtown (1414 S Alamo) you have to “Let it sit there. Just let it melt.” Patience is the key to a perfectly toasted marshmallow.

At Halcyon you can order tableside s’mores for either two or four people. They will bring over a tray with an open flame, skewers, graham crackers, marshmallows and Hershey’s chocolate to create your masterpiece. Or you can sip your s'mores and order a “s’more-tini” or a s’mores flavored shot. Von Peacock said it best

“S’mores are the go-to dessert.”

If you do venture into Halcyon, here is something to keep in mind: “In case your s’more fire gets a bit too crazy, tell a barista. She will bring a coffee mug and put it out or we have complimentary cups of water to pour over the s’more fire and you’ll be fine. Just do not try to relight it yourself, it will burst into a gigantic flame.”

Happy S’mores Day!
