August is National S’mores Month .  Who doesn’t enjoy roasting marshmallows over a campfire until they are almost burnt to a crisp, and then shoving them into layers of graham and chocolate?  

The origin of s’mores is shrouded in mystery and intrigue, with no one rightfully knowing how it came to be or was named.
Most records believe that the Campfire Girls created it and that the Girl Scouts brought s’mores their popularity.
The first printed S’mores recipe appeared in 1927 in the Girl Scout handbook called, Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts.

” S’MORE” FUN FACTS
S’mores got its name because you’ll always want “some more”!
Graham crackers were created in 1829 by Rev. Sylvester Graham. They were originally considered a health food.
About 90 million pounds of marshmallows are purchased every year. No word on how many are used to make s’mores.
Egyptians enjoyed a marshmallow-like treat made with mallow plants as early as 2000 B.C.
The world record was set in 2003 with a S’more weighing in at 1,600 lbs

S’mores go hand and hand with Memorable Times.

S’Mores In A Bag……

  • 1 individual-sized bag of Teddy Grahams
  • 1/8 cup of Marshmallow Fluff (1 large spoonful)
  • 1/3 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips (divided)

You can find a 12 pack of the small Teddy Graham bags at Wal-Mart with three flavors– honey, cinnamon & chocolate.   Choose a flavor and open the bag carefully, making sure the sides don’t tear.

Measure out the Fluff & add it to the bag of Teddy Grahams, stirring slightly to coat as many crackers as possible.

Add the miniature marshmallows and half of the chocolate chips (1/8 cup) to the bag.

Place the remaining chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and heat (in 20-30 second intervals) until the chocolate is melted.  Pay close attention not to let it burn.

Pour or spoon the melted chocolate into the bag of Teddy Grahams and mix well to cover all of the ingredients.  Mmmmmmm!!

S”Mores Dessert Pizza

Refrigerated pizza dough

Marshmallow fluff

Graham cracker crumbs (or whole crackers that you can smash up)

Chocolate chips or chunks

Chocolate syrup (a last minute addition)

 

First, you’ll unroll the dough and squish it down into your pan.

Bake it according to package directions. I baked mine at about 350 for about 12 minutes. When it comes out, it should look slightly golden.

Use the fluff as your “sauce”. You probably won’t need the whole jar. Spoon it out with a tablespoon and then push it around the crust to cover it.

Sprinkle with a  handful or two of chocolate chips or chunks.

Sprinkle it with a couple of spoons of graham cracker crumbs as well.

Bake it again for another 12 minutes or so. The marshmallow really gets a nice crust on it and holds everything together really well so you can cut it into slices. Drizzle chocolate over the top.

ENJOY!!
