First you take the ‘mallow…

August 10 is National S’mores Day. A day entirely devoted to everyone’s favorite fireside treat. Although its origin is unknown, the first recipe for “Some Mores” appeared in the 1927 Girl Scout Handbook, “Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts,” and somewhere along the way the name was shortened to s’mores.

So celebrate this occasion by gathering your best girl friends and creating your own version of this fun and tasty summertime dessert.

What you’ll need:
A campfire or fireplace

A long stick for roasting the marshmallows

4 marshmallows
4 graham crackers
2 oz chocolate bar

(serves 4)
