Get ready for the most delicious day of the year!
Stock up on graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows because this Saturday, August 10, is National S ‘more Day. If you attended camp, you must have gathered around the campfire and roasted her very own tasty treat. It’s one of Girl Scouts’ many cherished traditions.
You may be wondering who invented this mouthwatering snack. No one knows for sure, but many say s’mores were invented by the Girl Scouts in the early 1900s. The recipe was first recorded in the 1927 edition of the Girl Scouts handbook titled Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts. Loretta Scott Crew, who made s’mores for girls around the campfire, receives credit for the recipe. The name s’more came from people asking for “some more” of the delicious concoction.
Over the years, people have come up with many different ways to make s’mores. The traditional Girl Scout way is to roast a marshmallow over a campfire, place it on a graham cracker, cover with a piece of chocolate, and then one more graham cracker. Press the sandwich together and enjoy! No campfire? You can still make s’mores without a campfire by using a microwave to heat up the combination.
