NATIONAL S’MORES DAY

What is a S’more? • Graham Crackers • Toasted Marshmallows • Chocolate A little bit about the S’more: S’more is the contraction of the phrase “some more”, which is not strange considering how tasty they are. The first S’more recipe can be found in a book of recipes published by the Campfire Marshmallows Company in the early 1920s, which also tells us that the treat had already been popular with both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of America for some time. Both groups have published the recipe in their campfire cookbooks. In 1968 the following recipe was provided: place a square of milk chocolate on a graham cracker, toast a marshmallow and put on top of the chocolate, then a second graham cracker on top of the toasted marshmallow and squeeze and you will want “s’more”. There are many variations on S’mores including versions made as Pop Tarts, pies and even cookies. S’mores can also be made in your kitchen….
