Today, August 10th is National S’mores Day. Every day seems to be some National Food Day and while I don’t normally honor these food days with posts, today I decided to repost this S’mores piece originally published on July 6th. I personally like this post for it’s ingenuity. I’ve tried each of these recipes since the original post and let me tell you unless you’re a professional food photographer with photoshopping capabilities, trying to capture the right angle for a newly s’mored S’more is challenging at best so that’s the reason for the “professional” shots. What I can say is Holy Mackerel! each of these newfangled twists on the classic S’more is equally as fantastic! Give ‘em a try, you won’t be sorry.

July 6, 2012 – Summer is in full swing and that means good ‘ole burgers & dogs on the grill with S’mores for dessert. Nothing beats the classic way of S’more-ing; by firing marshmallows over an open flame and squishing the melty goodness between two graham crackers; allowing the chocolate to melt in to one sweet gooey treat. However, every now and then we all need a little adaptation, so should your classic way of S’more-ing get a bit stale I’ve got some new twists on the classic sure to add a bit more delight to your summer. Let’s start with a classic recipe:

  • 1 large marshmallow
  • 1 graham cracker
  • 1.5 Hershey chocolate candy bar
  • Heat the marshmallow over an open flame until it begins to brown and melt
  • Break the graham cracker in half. Sandwich the chocolate between the cracker and the hot marshmallow. Let the marshmallow to cool just a before eating
