15 Crave-Worthy S’More Recipes

Certain things just scream summer, so much so they’re almost essential to summer. S’mores is one that screams very loud!  Do you know where they came from?

The history of s’mores is somewhat unknown, but the first recipe was found in a publication of the Girl Scouts in 1927 by Loretta Scott Crew who made them at a campfire for the scouts. It is unknown when the name was shortened, but recipes for “Some Mores” are in various Girl Scout publications until at least 1973.

But you know the best part of the s’more is not it’s history, but it’s taste. Let me share with you the original 1927 recipe for s’mores compliment’s of the girl scouts.

“Some More:
8 sticks (for toasting the marshmallows)
16 graham crackers
8 bars plain chocolate (any of the good plain brands, broken in two)
16 marshmallows

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. “

The largest s’more ever made weighed 1,600 pounds and used 20,000 marshmallows and 7,000 chocolate bars. That was in 2003, and the Guinness World Record category for largest s’more was retired shortly after. A larger s’more was made in 2007 to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Virginia State Parks, measuring 1,936 square feet, using 55,000 graham crackers, 40,000 marshmallows and 8,000 Hershey’s chocolate bars, but was not recognized by Guinness.

National S’mores Day is August 10th. And you don’t need to know who invented the s’more to know that’s going to be a very good day.

S’more Fun Facts…….

• Of the 90 million pounds of marshmallows American buy every year. 50 percent of those are toasted over the fire during the summer (and that’s a lot of marshmallows.)

• Reverend Sylvester Graham, a minister who believed strongly in avoiding processed wheat, invented the sweet whole wheat cracker named for him in 1829.

• The original S’mores recipes has inspired major American food manufacturers to make S’mores Grahams children’s cereal as well as the Hershey’s S’mores candy bar — both of which have now been discontinued — proving once again that making S’mores is half the fun.
