Today is National S’mores Day. It celebrates Girl Scout Loretta Scott Crew’s culinary invention, immortalized in the 1927 handbook Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts.
16 graham crackers
8 bars plain chocolate (any of the good plain brands broken in two)
Toast two marshmallows over the coals to a crisp gooey state and then put them inside a graham cracker and chocolate bar sandwich. The heat of the marshmallow between the halves of chocolate bar will melt the chocolate a bit. Though it tastes like “some more” one is really enough.
It isn’t clear at what point the name was shortened to S’more, but who cares? Happy National S’mores Day!
