S’more Just Got Better

No Comments

S’more are the perfect campfire treat. It’s also the perfect treat in the middle winter in front of the fireplace. Come to think about it, they are the perfect year round treat. But its time to upgrade and branch out from the basics of graham crackers, Hershey bards and roasted marshmallows. Here are 20 awesomely delicious and outrageous upgrades to the traditional S’more.

  1. Make your own graham crackers. Better yet, cut them into dinosaur shapes.
  2. Add a layer of peanut butter on your graham cracker. Easier still, replace the Hershey bar with Reese’s peanut butter cups. Other nut butters, such as almond and cashew work great too.
  3. And how about Nutella????
  4. Add banana slices to your peanut butter s’more.
  5. Have you tried an Oreo s’more? Pull apart the two cookies and place your roasted marshmallow in between. The Oreo cookies act as a graham cracker and who doesn’t love the creamy center? Use double-stuff cookies for extra extravagance.
  6. Take this concept further with the S’moreo. For a S’moreo, add a dab of peanut butter onto the cream center before adding a roasted marshmallow.
  7. Do you love the tropical coconut? You can’t go wrong with toasted coconut marshmallows. Add the normal s’more necessities, the chocolate and graham cracker, with this coconut bite of bliss. When roasted over the coals of a fire, the coconut shavings and gooey marshmallow is to die for.
  8. What about a caramel chocolate s’more? Chocolate, a sprinkle of crunchy sea salt, and rich, smooth, caramel make pretty much everything better. Cover your chocolate with a spoonful of caramel sauce and a sprinkle of coarse sea salt before adding your perfectly roasted marshmallow.
  9. With your caramel chocolate s’more, you can swap out the sea salt and add some toasted coconut for a Samoa S’more!
  10. Everything goes better with bacon. This one can be a bit messy but it’s worth it. To achieve this level of s’more perfection, layer bacon, a toasted marshmallow and chocolate in between graham crackers. Top it off by drizzling your favorite maple syrup in the middle of the miraculous mess.
  11. Try a Mexican s’mores. Build your s’mores the traditional way but sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon and chili pepper over the Hershey’s bar before adding your roasted marshmallows.
  12. Chocolate chip cookies s’mores creates an added decadence to your s’mores repertoire. Replace the graham crackers with chocolate chip cookies.
  13. Next, use double fudge chocolate chip cookies. If you like shortbread, that’s a great alternative too.
  14. For southerner’s, use a biscuit in place of the graham crackers.
  15. Go for broke and use glazed donuts in place of your graham crackers. Its best to cut the donuts in half horizontally. Pure sugar and chocolate bliss.
  16. The S’moritto. Take a small tortilla, cover it with a thin layer of peanut butter and jelly. Add a slice of bacon, then top with a Hershey bar and your roasted marshmallow. Wrap like a burritto and its ready to be devoured.
  17. Replace the traditional Hershey’s bar with a Cookies and Cream Hershey bar.
  18. Have you ever tried a S’moreover? Start with puff pastry dough. Top the dough with a graham cracker on one-half of the dough. Then add a thin (or thick) layer of peanut butter, add your Hershey Bar, and then top with marshmallows straight out of the bag. Wrap the dough into popover sizes and seal the edges. Pop int he oven for 15 minutes at 400 degrees.
  19. Replace the Hershey’s bar with thin mints or York Pepperment Patties.
  20. Try something completely different – a Lemon Meringue s’mores. Replace the Hershey Bar with lemon curd.

No matter how you spin it, s’more can be more than a great camp tradition. Not only are your options endless, you don’t need to confine yourself to a campfire. Your fireplace, oven or cast iron skillet are also great vessels to melt your chocolate and marshmallows any time of the year when that craving hits.
