Did You Know? S'mores are thought to have gotten their name from frequent requests for "some more" whenever they were made.
The S'more is a wonderful Girl Scout tradition that started way back in the 1920's.
The first publication of the "Official S'more Recipe" was in Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts, Girl Scouts of the USA, 1927.
More American than apple pie? Perhaps!
But if sitting around a campfire with marshmallows on a forked stick doesn't appeal to you, there are variations aplenty.
Cold Weather S'mores
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Slather peanut butter onto crackers. Top with a few chocolate chips and mini marshmallows. Bake in oven just til golden (only about 2-4 minutes). Cool a few moments and eat!
1 (9 inch) graham cracker crust
1 (7 ounce) jar marshmallow creme
1 (3.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
1 cup chocolate shell topping (optional)
1 Spread marshmallow cream in the graham cracker crust. Prepare chocolate pudding according to package directions and pour over marshmallow cream. Cover top with chocolate shell topping. Refrigerate for 1 1/2 hours.
8 large oatmeal cookies
4 ounces milk chocolate
1 Lightly oil grill and preheat to high.
2 Place 1 ounce of chocolate on the flat side of 4 of the oatmeal cookies. Skewer the marshmallows and roast them, turning constantly, until they are a golden brown all over.
3 Slide a warm marshmallow onto the chocolate and top it with another cookie (flat side down).
Repeat for all cookies. Let sit for a couple of minutes to melt chocolate, and serve.
