Can you have crock pots or electric fondue pots? You could plug one or more of those in with melted chocolate. Provide marshmallows and graham cracker crumbs, and let guests dip the marshmallows in chocolate and then crackers. I know it doesn’t melt the marshmallows, but that’s about all I can think of at the moment.

Oh, and chocolate fountains would work for melting the choclate too. πŸ™‚

Can you use marshmallow fluff instead of marshmallows?  Not as tasty, perhaps, but might be your only option, unless you want them pre-made and re-heated.

I love the marshmallow dipped in chocalte then rolled graham crackers! And, by the way, I’ve used those indoor little electric things and they kinda suck. You don’t get a good toast and it takes forever and they’re messy.

Rent a couple of commercial electric grills.

Great ideas! I may just do the pre-made ones.

I don’t know if it would still count as an open flame, but here’s an idea: take clay/terracotta pots and line them with aluminum foil. Put hot charcoal in them. There shouldn’t technically be a flame, so maybe it will pass as acceptable? FWIW, we’re doing the s’mores on a stick idea- but instead of using chocolate chips, we’ll be using either baker’s chocolate, or those wilton’s melting chocolate (so we can have different colors). We’re also think about doing different flavors-melting in white choc/rolling in coconut, milk choc/roll in nuts and shortbread cookie crumbles, etc. Good luck!

My original plan was to have a smores bar too! But like you, my venue says no open flames (since we’ll be on a mountain) so I gave in and changed to a cookie bar! I hope you find a great solution–I’m sure it’s out there!!

So I assume you have asked your venue this already, but my venue had a no open flame policy and when I inquired further I learned that was directed toward candles and did not apply to Sterno.  Since most caterers use Sterno for buffets it is typically allowed, just wanted to throw that out there in case it helps.

I love the idea of a fondue-or other “melted chocolate” idea! Maybe you can have different things to dip the mallows in after, like grahm crackers, sprinkles, coconut etc. Sounds fun!!

JenGirl:  Fabulous idea!!!  I will probably go this route since our venue is flame free.
