Happy Smores Day! Chocolate and Marshmallows, say no more. For those of you who have been living under a rock, a smore is a graham sandwich of a roasted marshmallow and melted chocolate. The original Smore is generally associated with camping and for some reason is a staple when it comes to sleeping in the wilderness with bears while not showering. However since the days of our prehistoric ancestors who had to rub sticks together for heat, the Smore has come a long way. Here’s some 5 new ways to make smores that will have you begging for S’more.
Let’s start with an old school favorite…the Peanut Butter and Jelly Smore. Replace the chocolate with pb and J for a kindergarten twist to this classic Boy Scout snack. I don’t know how I feel about the warm jelly but anything with chocolate and peanut butter is a yes in my book.
The Elvis Smore
Since The King lived (or died) off peanut butter, bacon, and banana sandwiches, why not make it into a smore? Take some graham crackers, peanut butter cups, marshmellows, and a banana (maybe bacon too if you’re feeling aggressive). We’ll dedicate this one to The King.
The Mexican Smore
Feeling Spicy. You’ve seen a Choco Taco, but how bout the Mexican Smore. Take your basic smore and add on some cinnamon and nutmeg. Salsa anyone? No? Yeah, that would have been weird.
Smore on the go? Sure, try a Smores Pop! Take a marshmallow on a stick, dip it into some melted chocolate and then roll it around in crushed up Graham Crackers. Great for a mid-day chocolate fix, or an appetizer to the next Smore Concoction. Beware.
If you’re really a Smore fanatic go big or go home: The S’more-a-palooza…stacks on stacks on stacks of Smores. Don’t try this at home Divas. For best results, hit the gym before and after.
