We celebrate National S’mores Day on Sunday! I remember eating S’mores in my childhood around the campfire laughing with my friends. It was a fun to toast your own marshmallows, often lighting them on fire, and watching the chocolate melt from the heat of the marshmallow. And it was messy! What kid doesn’t like to eat something messy?
Although no one knows exactly when or where the popular campfire treat was born. The first recorded S’more recipe is in the 1927 publication, “Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts.”
The Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary defines S’more as: “a dessert consisting usually of toasted marshmallow and pieces of chocolate bar sandwiched between two graham crackers.” However, time has evolved, and so have S’more recipes! I came across some S’more recipes that sounded delicious and I wanted to give you the opportunity to try some for yourself. Just because we’re now adults doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy eating something messy from time to time!
