National S’Mores Day-Campfire Favorite

Happy National S’MORES Day!

This is probably the first recipe you learn how to make as a kid sitting around a campfire.It’s a delicious, but sticky and gooey treat we all love. I haven’t met anyone yet who doesn’t like S’Mores, have you?

S’mores is so simple to make, all you do is crack open a bag of marshmallows, roast them over a campfire till golden brown, then smush your marshmallows onto a graham cracker and add your favorite chocolate. Top off the sandwich with another cracker and squeeze together. The chocolate melts into the marshmallow, and the creamy goo makes the crackers stick together. YUM!

You can also add peanut butter on the graham crackers before adding the other ingredients or use another candy bars you like instead of the chocolate bar. Some people use marshmallow creme instead of plain marshmallows but where’s the fun in that 🙂

Or if sitting around the campfire isn’t possible, here’s an easy step by step recipe for making S’Mores indoors – Indoor S’Mores from LifeasMom.com

There is simply no better way to have fun with your kids and enjoy chocolate at the same time!

According to the National Calendar Day website, this tasty snack is credited to the entrepreneur Alec Barnum, however the first recorded version of the recipe can be found in the 1927 publication of Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts. Even though the Girl Scouts were not the first ones to make s’mores, Girl Scout groups describe them in their reports as early as 1925. Earlier recipes used the name “Some Mores” and it is unclear when the name was shortened to “S’mores”.

Have Fun making S’Mores on your next camping trip!

Happy #NationalSmoresDay !
