DID YOU KNOW? S'mores fun facts

• The sweet invention is usually credited to Girl Scout Loretta Scott Crew whose award-winning recipe entitled "Some Mores" which appeared in the Girl Scout handbook in 1927.

said no thanks.

• Since then, it isn't s'mores without graham crackers. Reverend Sylvester Graham (a minister who believed in avoiding processed wheat) invented the sweet whole wheat cracker named for him in 1829.

• In addition to the classic recipe, variations on the smores theme have included chocolate-covered mint s'mores, chocolate chip cookie s'mores, and our all-time favorite -- s'mores brownies

• S'mores 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. (Who wants to buy s'mores when making them is half the fun?)

How to make s'mores

graham crackers, marshmallow, and chocolateUsually listed as one of the Top Ten favorite campfire recipes, s'mores 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, s'mores can also be made by popping them in the microwave for 15 seconds. They aren't as good as campfire s'mores, but they're great as a rainy day activity for kids and takes much less time and effort than warming them over a fire.
