National S’mores Day

National S’mores Day. A day for our favorite campfire treat … S’mores. Time to enjoy a chocolaty,roasted marshmallow treat on a graham cracker.

National S’mores Day

Held annually on August 10. The start of this day is unknown. The National Confectioners Association started this holiday. However, we don’t need a day set aside of the year to enjoy this yummy treat. We also don’t need a bonfire or a campfire to enjoy this treat too. This treat can be made using your oven or even microwave too. There are many ways you can make a s’more or other items you can add to it. You can use all kinds of types of chocolates, marshmallows and graham crackers.

What is a S’more

A s’mores is a traditional nighttime campfire treat popular in the United States, consisting of a fire-roasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between two pieces of graham cracker.2

S’more actually means Some More, where early Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts enjoyed this treat. Actually a 1927 publication from the Girl Scouts, Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts, was the first recorded recipe for a S’more. While even some earlier recipes used the name Some More. It has been said that this gooey treat came from an entrepreneur ,Alec Barnum.
