Roasting marshmallows sandwiched in between two crispy graham crackers with melted milk chocolate is better when said bonfire is in the ground rather than above.
Stepping down into a sunken fire pit completed with couch-like seating arrangements that surround the entire pit make for a cozy night out with friends and or family.
Similar to a sunken living room, sunken bonfires offer living room like seating that completely surround the fire in replace of wooden stools or logs that typically hurt your tush after sitting for long periods of time!
Throw in a few pillows, soft cushions and maybe even a standing cart with a few shelves to store away the necessary goods for s’mores making and a few fire starters to get the bonfire up in flames and your marshmallows only slightly burnt.
Now, who wants s’mores, say I!
