August 10th Is the Perfect Day to Enjoy This Popular Treat
Crackers, melted marshmallows, and melted chocolate on top — for some people, nothing probably tastes better during a cold night camping than s’mores!
The first s’more recipe was credited to a recipe book published by the Campfire Marshmallows company in the early 1920s. It was called “Graham Cracker Sandwich.” However, the treat was already popular with Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts way before the recipe book was printed.
The name comes from a combination of the words “some” and “more.” The treat probably became known as “s’more” as people wanted some more of it after eating their first marshmallow treat. While no one knows who first coined the term s’more, it somehow stuck over the years and became the official name for this dessert.
We dedicate August 10th of each year to this little slice of toasty heaven. National S’mores Day is the perfect excuse to enjoy and appreciate s’mores in every way possible.
To help you celebrate National S’mores Day, Veteran Car Donations has come up with some fun activities that you can try alongside your friends and family:
- Go camping!
S’mores are often associated with camping where participants sit around the campfire telling stories while eating big, puffy marshmallows on sticks. Invite your friends or family to go camping for a quick getaway with nature. Don’t forget to bring large packs of marshmallows!
- Make different s’more variations!
Peanut butter s’mores, banana s’mores, or chocolate-dipped s’mores — you can do many variations of this treat to add some twists to the original s’more recipe. Give some a try on National S’mores Day.
- Try culinary recipes inspired by s’mores!
Roll up your sleeves and head on to the kitchen! From s’mores-themed cheesecakes to s’mores crème Brulee, these culinary creations require more than a campfire to make. Though they do need a bit of effort, the result is pretty worth it!
- Beat the heat by making s’more milkshakes!
Feel like you need a cold drink on August 10th? Celebrate National S’mores Day by making a s’mores milkshake. You’ll need to blend vanilla ice cream, milk, chocolate syrup, marshmallow crème, and some ice. Once you’re done blending all the ingredients, top things off with some graham cracker crumbs.
- Make mini s’mores cereal for the family!
Make miniature s’mores by cutting regular-sized marshmallows in half. Melt the marshmallows and cover them with graham cracker crumbs before they cool down. Add milk and presto, you got a miniature s’more cereal! Have your family enjoy the treat.
