We know that making s’mores is considered a camping cliche, but they are just SO good we had to dedicate (at least) one camping blog post to this delicious dessert! Ooey gooey toasted marshmallows sandwiched between 2 graham crackers with a (generous) piece of heavenly chocolate - it’s the perfect snack for morning, noon, or night.
Rumor has it this decadent treat was actually invented by the Girl Scouts! (Thanks, Girls!) S’mores bring family and friends together. They are easy to make on a grill, campfire, or in the oven! And, while the “standard s’more” is an oldie but goodie, there are some simple ways to shake up the traditional version. You won’t want to miss these:
● ADD PEANUT BUTTER. If you’re a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup lover, this version may be obvious to you! But, have you tried it yet? You should! You will LOVE the combo of creamy PB & melted chocolate!
● ADD PRETZELS. Can’t decide between salty and sweet? That’s OK - with this version of the s’more, you don’t have to! You can add a pretzel in the marshmallow-y middle of the traditional s’more or you can substitute the pretzels in for the graham crackers!! Brilliant, right?
● USE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES. Everyone loves a chocolate chip cookie! Make your s’more extra chocolate-y by substituting chocolate chip cookies in place of the graham crackers. Hold on to your sweet tooth - it may not be able to handle this super delicious s’mores version!
● USE OREOS. Smooth, toasted marshmallows and rich, melted chocolate sandwiched between the world’s favorite sandwich cookie - the Oreo! Need we say more?
