S'Mores 10 Ways

The perfect, Classic S'More.

(From the 4th of July Camping Menu)

We make S'Mores every night when we camp so we like to try different variations for fun. 

On the 4th, put all the ingredients out in separate dishes and let each person create their own masterpiece. Vive le difference!

S’Mores 10 Ways

1. Classic S’Mores

Legend has it that S'Mores were invented by the Girl Scouts, did you know that?

Serves:  8

8 graham crackers
8 marshmallows
4 Hershey’s milk chocolate bars
green, pointy sticks

1.  Toast each marshmallow on a long stick over the fire until it’s golden brown.
2.  Put a piece of chocolate on a graham cracker and put a hot, roasted marshmallow on top of the chocolate.
3.  Cover with a second graham cracker and smush together to make a S’More.
4.  Bon appétit!

2. S’Mores au Chois (“oh shwah”) – S’Mores Your Way

Instead of Hershey bars, substitute any kind of chocolate you like. My kids like Nutella. I like peanut butter cups.

3. Fruity S’Mores

Add some sliced banana or other fruit inside your S’Mores. We like sliced apples, strawberries and raisins.

4. PB & S’Mores

Spread the graham crackers with peanut butter before you add the chocolate and marshmallow.

5.  S’Mores in a Cone

Substitute an ice cream cone for the graham crackers – just put a piece of chocolate and a hot, roasted marshmallow inside. Mm.

6. Pie Iron S’Mores

Make your S’Mores in a pie iron with 2 slices of bread (buttered on the outsides) instead of graham crackers.

7. Brownie S’Mores

Substitute brownies or cake for the graham crackers! Is that sweet enough for you?

8. Bikkie S’Mores

Take a raw refrigerator biscuit – stretch it out and put a piece of chocolate and a marshmallow inside.  Wrap it in foil and cook it on the grill or directly on the coals.

9. S’Mores-adilla

Use a tortilla instead of graham crackers – sprinkle a tortilla with chocolate chips and mini marshmallows, roll it up and wrap it in foil. Place it on the grill until it's melted.

10. Quickie S'Mores

Put a marshmallow between 2 chocolate chip cookies, wrap it in foil and toss it on the grill or directly on the coals. Don’t leave it on too long!
