12 Creative S’mores Recipes

S’mores! Need I say more? Summer isn’t complete without them. Although we’re not completely sure where the classic campfire dessert came from, the first published “Some More” recipe appeared in 1927 in a Girl Scouts handbook.  As awesome as the traditional graham cracker, chocolate and marshmallow s’more is, let your taste buds discover a whole new world during your next campfire with these fun new combinations.

Add new ingredients to the traditional s'more for endless possibilities!

First, how to roast the perfect marshmallow.

A good s’more first starts with the most important ingredient—A perfectly-roasted marshmallow.  Ever wondered how to get it golden brown on the outside, and soft on the inside (unless, of course, you prefer it burnt!)?  Follow these steps:

  1. Build a fire ahead of time, so that coals form.
  2. Get the right roasting stick.  A good roasting stick should be long enough, sturdy and pointed.
  3. Roast just one marshmallow at a time instead of stacking a bunch on top of each other.  It’s easier to get a good, toasted surface on your marshmallow this way.
  4. Cook your marshmallow directly over the hot coals.  The coals will perfectly caramelize the sugar in the marshmallow.  Turn the marshmallow gradually as it browns.  When the marshmallow has a brown coating on all sides, it’s done! 

Roasting the perfect marshmallow might be trickier than you think!

Now, let’s take that marshmallow masterpiece and create the coolest s’more ever.  Which one of these recipes speaks to you?
