If we lived next to Kilauea volcano in Hawaii, there’s a 100% chance that we would do this and film it and put it on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
But, according to alleged experts, roasting marshmallows over lava is dangerous:

And you mean to tell us that something “spectacular” might happen if you roast marshamallows under certain conditions?! This is like a volcano scientist’s version of a “Wet Paint” sign that really means “Must Touch:
Erm…we're going to have to say no, that's not safe. (Please don't try!) If the vent is emitting a lot of SO2 or H2S, they would taste BAD. And if you add sulfuric acid (in vog, for example) to sugar, you get a pretty spectacular reaction.
