Did you know August 10th is National S’mores Day? It’s true. America’s deep love of the campfire treat is official and on the record.
Nobody is quite sure how the campfire confections composed of melted marshmallow and chocolate sandwiched by graham crackers entered our orbit. It’s mostly an anecdotal recipe, passed on by word of mouth, likely even before a recipe surfaced in the first publication of the Girl Scout handbook called Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scout in 1927.
What is not in question, though, is that the concept of the s’more quickly transcended mere Girl or Boy Scout outings, becoming a treat enjoyed by all ages, at any time of the year, whether served at an outdoor cookout, or made in the microwave or toaster oven.
In celebration of National S’mores Day, I put together several ideas for toasting (get it?) the treat by enjoying it in some creative and unexpected ways. Check them out on Craftsy!
