Build-Your-Own Gourmet S'mores!

Build-Your-Own Gourmet S'mores!
by Bernard Moran

The recipe is one we all know and love: a toasted marshmallow and a square of chocolate sandwiched between two graham crackers. Eat and enjoy.

A summertime staple, S’Mores have been a tradition around the campfire since the American Girl Scouts first published the game-changing recipe in their 1927 handbook. And we are so glad they did! Named after their addictive quality (everyone always wants “some more”), S’Mores are a classic summer treat that can bring any family together.

Here at Madd Capp, we love S’Mores so much that we’ve created two games based on the snack: crunchy graham crackers stuffed with sweet chocolate and a golden toasted gooey marshmallow. But who says the recipe has to stop there? It doesn't! We’ve scoured the internet for the best build-your-own gourmet S’Mores recipes to put a twist on the classic treat. Try them at your next family campfire or backyard barbecue! They’re simple, delicious, and sure to please any summer crowd.
