Never Burn Your S’mores Again With This Simple DIY Roaster

We’ve all been there, holding our marshmallow roasting s’mores when suddenly it catches on fire. What, are you supposed to settle and eat that charred black mess? No way. You deserve s’mores that have been cooked to perfection. But as impossible as it sounds, you can make delicious melty s’mores every time using this DIY roaster made from an empty 16-ounce aluminum can.

This clever hack comes from Grant Thomas on Youtube. He transformed this washed-out Mike’s Hard Lemonade can into a simple s’mores roaster (though you can use any beverage as long as the can is aluminum and holds 16 ounces).

Not to mention it’s quick and easy to make. Using scissors, cut off about ¼ of the bottom of the can, flatten out the rest using a matchbox, add a couple of slits for legs (to hold it up), skewer holes, and voilà!
