Make Cookies, Chocolate Squares and Marshmallows
To make chocolate squares, melt chocolate chips in a double boiler, stirring constantly until chocolate is thoroughly melted. Pour melted chocolate onto a wax-paper-lined pan, spread until chocolate is approximately 1/16-inch thick. Allow to cool, then break apart into rough squares.

Create Toasting Sticks
Whittle branches to remove bark and create a point at one end. Coat sticks with a food-grade oil or wax to make removing hot s'mores easier.
Add Leather Cording
