S'mores Filled Beer Mug

Are you still searching for gifts for dad?  We're on the downhill stretch to Father's day!  Today I have a fun little gift to share with you.  One that is so simple but perfect for the dad that is a beer connoisseur as well as a s'mores enthusiast. 
There's not a lot to this mug, but it is incredibly fun to make.  You could also go one step further and personalize a mug by etching your dad's name or initials on it.  When I started thinking about this idea I started thinking about all the different types of beer and the coloration of them.  I wanted to do a mug that held the makings for s'mores since Spencer LOVES s'mores, and my mind automatically went to a dark, amber style beer.
Once I got that nailed down, it was a cinch from there.  I added some fun size dark chocolate Hershey's bars, to resemble the amber beer.  Then to resemble the gradual color change of the head on the beer I layered in some graham cracker sticks and then topped it with an overflowing mound of marshmallows.
I couldn't have been happier with the end result.  A big beer stein filled with the makings for s'mores and all the while resembles a mug of ice cold beer.  Give this, alone, to dad and he'll be thrilled.  Or, pair this cute mug with a 6 pack of his favorite beer and tell him to relax and enjoy on his day.

S'mores Filled Beer Mug

To assemble-
Place the candy bars in the bottom of the mug, next add the graham cracker sticks, and then top with marshmallows.

Give to dad as is, with a 6 pack of his favorite beer, or tie a ribbon and note around it.
