August 10 is S’mores Day!
S’mores, a contraction for “some mores,” are traditional campfire treats consisting of a marshmallow toasted over a fire and a piece of chocolate sandwiched between two graham cracker squares. While the creator of the s’more is unknown, the first recorded version of the recipe appeared in the Girl Scout Handbook in 1927 and was credited to Loretta Scott Crew.
Whatever the origins of this gooey, chocolaty dessert, s’mores are definitely something to celebrate. Gather your kids, family or friends for a backyard campout and enjoy all the s’mores you can eat!
However, you don’t need a campfire to make s’mores. You can also make s’mores using a grill, toaster oven or microwave. Find out how by clicking here!
