Summertime is here, and that means it’s time to get out the graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate! August 10th marks National S'mores Day, so you can bet that everyone will be celebrating in their own special way. Whether you’re a traditionalist or an innovator, there are plenty of ways to enjoy this classic campfire treat.
The Classic S'more Recipe
For those who prefer the classic s’more recipe, nothing beats the original combination of roasted marshmallows, gooey melted chocolate, and crunchy graham crackers. To make a classic s’more, toast your marshmallows over a fire until they are golden brown and gooey. Place the roasted marshmallow between two pieces of graham crackers with a piece of chocolate in between. Squish both pieces together so that everything melts together into a delicious treat!
Variations on the Traditional Recipe
If you’re feeling adventurous and want to try something new for National S’mores Day, there are plenty of variations on the traditional recipe. You can use different kinds of chocolate, like dark or white chocolate, instead of milk chocolate for an added layer of sweetness. For those looking for something savory and sweet, try adding some peanut butter or bacon to your s’mores for a salty kick. You can also switch up your s’more base by using waffles or pretzels instead of graham crackers! The possibilities are endless when it comes to s’mores recipes—the only limit is your imagination.
Other Ways To Enjoy S'mores
You don't have to just stick to making s’mores over a campfire, either! If you want to celebrate National S'mores Day but don't have access to a fire pit or grill, try baking them in the oven or microwave instead. You can even buy ready-made ingredients like premade marshmallow fluff or pre-made graham cracker sandwiches if you're short on time but still want to indulge in this tasty treat. There's no wrong way to enjoy s'mores—just make sure you do it safely!
No matter how you choose to enjoy them on National S'more's Day (or any other day!), one thing is clear—s'mores are here to stay! This classic summer treat has been around since 1927 and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. So gather around the campfire (or oven!) with all your friends and family this August 10th—it's time for some s'more fun!
