    Treats from summer camp: Graham crackers with melted marshmallows and chocolate, prepared over an open flame such as a campfire. Best accompanied by acoustic guitar/folk songs and scary ghost stories (the ones with the flashlight pointed underneath the narrator’s chin, giving weird shadow effects.

    This American classic is everyone’s favorite childhood treat! S’mores are thought to have gotten their name from frequent requests for “some more” whenever they were made.

    There is no “right” way to make a S’more. Anyway you like it, is the right way. This recipe is one that has been passed down through years of family and scout camps. If your children haven’t tasted them yet, then you need to make sure to bring the right stuff to make them for your next camping trip, because they are missing out on an American classic.

    Traditionally made over an oven bonfire, but you can bring this treat into the kitchen. Some people think you can’t have or enjoy S’mores without a large bonfire, but you can. Home in front of the stove is ok, but really you should be out tent camping. No one is really sure who invented S’mores, because the recipe has basically been passed around by word of mouth since then. The first known recipe appeared in the 1927 Girl Scout hand book called Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts.

    Campfire S’mores – How To Make S’mores

    Recipe Type: Chocolate, Marshmallows
    Yields: serves many
    Prep time: 3 min
    Cook time: 5 min

    Ingredients Needed:

    Graham crackers, broken into squares
    Hershey’s plain milk chocolate bars, broken into sizes to fit the graham cracker squares
    Large marshmallows

    Equipment Needed:

    8 wood sticks or long metal skewers (for roasting the marshmallows)
    Bonfire, campfire, fire pit, or an commercial indoor S’mores Maker

    Directions:

    Take one (1) large graham cracker and break it in half (one for top cracker and one for bottom cracker). Notice graham crackers are scored across the middle, creating two sub-crackers. Break apart at this part. Repeat with additional graham crackers. Unwrap chocolate bar. Break bar into smaller pieces as indicated by manufacturer’s indentations in the surface of the chocolate (like a Hershey’s Bar, pre-scored into rectangles). Cover one of the graham cracker halves with chocolate pieces to fit your graham cracker.
    Put a marshmallow (or two) on the stick and hold it over the fire until roasted. Toast marshmallows over a campfire, turning the stick until the outside of the marshmallow is golden brown and just starting to get mushy. NOTE: Some people like to roast them for a few minutes, then make them catch on fire, blow them out, and then the marshmallows are done to their liking. Your choice on how you like your marshmallows! your toasted marshmallow (still on the stick), and lay it on the side of the graham cracker with the chocolate. Now take the other half of the graham cracker and cover the hot marshmallow, pressing down firmly enough to pull out the stick. When the S’more is fully assembled, let it sit for a few seconds. The heat will somewhat melt the chocolate and you won’t burn your mouth! Now squish the S’more between your fingers and eat it. Make sure to lick the “marshmallow goo” that slides out the sides.

    When ever I say that to my wife, she just replies,
    “How can I miss you when you never leave.”
