Holiday Gift Guide: Amy’s Ice Cream Big Kid S’mores

‘Tis the season to be jolly, meaning it is also the season for gift giving! As part of my full holiday coverage, I will be listing off a number of local places to shop and foodie gift ideas. In today’s installment of Ginny’s Austin Holiday Foodie Gift Guide we’re talking about Amy’s Ice Cream’s newly launched artisan Big Kid S’mores Kits.

Amy’s Ice Cream Big Kid S’more Kit

Growing up in South Texas, I spent many a night enjoying a roasting marshmallows and building s’mores around a beach bonfire. Whether enjoyed around a campfire or as a gussied up reinterpretation of the whimsical treat, there is still nothing that cures my sweet tooth quite like my childhood favorite treat, s’mores.

Perfect size!

Now, as an ode to the perennial childhood favorite, Amy’s Ice Cream has launched a ‘Big Kid’s’ s’more gift box just in time for the holidays. Perfect for kids and kids-at-heart alike, this S’mores kit reinvents the wheel in the best possible way by upgrading those crumbly graham crackers, super-sugary mallows, and milk chocolate bars in a big way. Amy’s version instead comes packed with packed with eight pairs of crisp biscotti cookies, three Amy’s Belgium chocolate bars, and 12 Mexican Vanilla marshmallows.

In order to do a bit of field research, Amy’s thoughtfully let me sample a s’mores kit. Inspired by the spirit of the season, I graciously shared my goods with a few friends while enjoying some Bing Crosby Holiday tunes and big kid grape juice (you’re welcome girls!). Since we lacked a live flame, we microwaved our s’mores rather than roasting the ‘mallow.Though the box recommends 15-20 seconds, I found 10 seconds is perfect for a more al dente marshmallow.

Hands and faces left a sticky sweet mess, these sweet treats were just as much fun to eat as we remembered. However, flavor-wise, Amy’s revamped s’mores proved to be much, much better (and in my case, sand free!).

Proving once again it’s all about the ingredients that make the final dish, every component of the S’more box, especially the marshmallows inspired by Amy’s signature ice cream, is sinfully delicious individually, meaning the end result is nothing short of dessert heaven.

Priced to move at $14.99, Amy’s Ice Cream Big Kid S’more Kits make an excellent foodie gift, treat for Santa, or a sweet surprise for the whole family. Order your kit by visiting Amy’s Ice Cream here.

Each box also comes with instructions for three ways to enjoy the S’mores, but just in case, here’s a video to help remind you just how to make the perfect S’more:
