What are s'mores?
A s’more is traditional nighttime campfire treat popular in the United States. Although many variations of the s’more have appeared over time, typically a s’more consists of a lightly toasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between two biscuits.
Where did the name “S’more” come from?
These sweet, gooey, delicious treats always leave kids (and adults) wanting more, which is likely how they got their name. S’more is thought to be a contraction of the phrase, “Some more”, as in “I want some more of those amazing s’mores!”
Who invented S’mores?
No one knows for sure who invented the s'more. However, the first published recipe for “some mores" was in a 1927 publication called Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts. Loretta Scott Crew, who made them for Girl Scouts by the campfire, is given credit for the recipe.
What if I don’t have a campfire?
Of course, a big part of the fun of s’mores is roasting marshmallows on an open fire but if you don’t have access to a campfire, you can always make s’mores at home in your kitchen, on your BBQ or using a gel tea light! Just make sure you have an adult around when deciding to roast marshmallows for s’mores!
