4 S’more Recipes for National S’mores Day

Blog | August 4th, 2022

No matter the season there’s nothing quite like a crispy-on-the-outside, gooey-in-the-middle marshmallow roasting over an open fire…unless of course it’s sandwiched between two graham crackers and a slab of melting chocolate. With S’mores Day approaching on August 10th, there’s no better time to celebrate and enjoy this magnificent combo!

It’s up for debate as to exactly where this favorite began, however, the first published recipe for “Some Mores” was in a 1927 publication called “Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts.” The story has it that a troop leader by the name of Loretta Scott Crew is given credit for the recipe after making them by a campfire for her Girl Scouts. The name was soon shortened to S’mores which is totally fitting because once you take a bite, you will want s’more!

This highly popular treat has expanded recipe boxes everywhere into quite an array of related recipes. So, when a campfire isn’t convenient you can still celebrate and satisfy your s’mores craving with recipes such as these!
