• Smores has inspired major American food manufacturers to make S'mores Grahams children's cereal as well as the Hershey's S'mores candy bar. But both were short-lived. (Seriously. Who wants to buy smores when making them is half the fun?)
How to make smores
Usually listed as one of the Top Ten favorite campfire recipes, smores are best prepared as the camp fire flames lower and the embers begin to glow:
1 large marshmallow
1 graham cracker
1 chocolate candy bar
Place marshmallow on a stick. Heat the marshmallow over hot embers until it begins to melt. Break the graham cracker in half. Place the hot marshmallow and a piece of chocolate on one half of the graham cracker. Top with the second piece of graham cracker to form a sandwich. Let the marshmallow cool a bit before serving.
NOTE: For a quick treat, smores can also be made by popping them in the microwave for 15 seconds. They aren't as good as campfire smores, but they're great as a rainy day activity for kids and takes much less time and effort than warming them over a fire.
