A s’more (sometimes spelled smore) is a traditional nighttime campfire treat popular in the United States and Canada, consisting of a fire-roasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between two pieces of graham cracker. National S’mores Day is celebrated annually on August 10.
S’more is a contraction of the phrase “some more”. Although the exact origin of the treat is unclear, reports about scouts from as early as 1925 describe them. One early published recipe for a s’more is found in a book of recipes published by the Campfire Marshmallows company in the 1920s where it was called a “Graham Cracker Sandwich.”
In honor of National S’mores Day, the Girl Scouts announced that they will be adding not one but two new cookie flavors inspired by the campfire treat.
Girls Scout Blog reports:
As a nod to the different ways people “s’more,” the new variety includes two versions: a crispy graham cookie double dipped in a crème icing and enrobed in a chocolatey coating and a crunchy graham sandwich cookie with a chocolate and marshmallowy filling. The cookies will be the first new addition to the Girl Scout Cookie lineup since 2015.
How to make a S’more:
S’mores are most typically cooked over a campfire by first roasting the marshmallow over the flame until it is golden brown. The marshmallow is then added on top of half of a graham cracker and a piece of chocolate. The second half of the cracker is then added on top.
