New Treats to Celebrate National S’mores Day

Summer and s’mores go hand in hand.  It makes sense then that National S’mores Day is on August 10th.  The dog days of summer have everyone searching for something to help them forget that summer is nearing its end.  S’mores, with their gooey marshmallow and melty chocolate have the nostalgia of summer camp, vacation, and the days when the sun shines for most of the day.

1. S’mores Ice Cream Sandwich

Not all s’mores have to be hot and melty.  The flavors of the toasty marshmallow, graham and chocolate all come through in this treat bound to keep you cool on a hot August day.

That loaded title is perfectly fitting for this s’mores treat that is loaded with toppings and flavor. Chocolate and peanut butter are a classic combination, and it gets elevated with the addition of marshmallow.

3. Double Chocolate S’mores Martini

A grownup version of a childhood classic is always a good idea.  When you don’t feel like heating up the oven, or eating a dessert, drinking your s’mores dessert is the perfect solution.  It is creamy, chocolatey, and won’t leave you with sticky, melted marshmallow all over your hands.

These s’mores treats have all the classic ingredients of campfire s’mores, but come in a much neater package.  The toasted marshmallow frosting paired with the creamy chocolate center is everything you would ever want in a s’mores treat.

5. S’mores Doughnuts

Who doesn’t love doughnuts? They are soft, sweet, and slightly chewy; the perfect combination.  These doughnuts, with their marshmallow glaze and chocolate drizzle are the perfect late night snack, and since they are doughnuts, you can even get away with eating them for breakfast.

6. Baked S’mores Bars

With this s’mores dessert, you get the sandwiched, messy effect of the classic, but a little upgraded. With a homemade graham cookie crust, this treat tastes like the red carpet version of its campfire self.

7. S’mores Ice Cream

This combines two summer favorites: ice cream and s’mores.  You even get the added nostalgia of Golden Grahams cereal, which adds that signature graham flavor as well as crunch.  There are so many delicious things going on in this ice cream, you’ll want to make a big batch because it will be gone before you know it!

8. S’mores Scones

I love any food item that really should be dessert, but can pass as breakfast. These scones are just that. A graham scone base, with flavor pockets of marshmallow and chocolate will start your day off perfectly!

These tarts are the perfect package.  The ooey-gooey texture of the melted marshmallow and chocolate, all bundled up neatly in a crisp graham cracker crust.  The most delicious hand held pie for a summer morning, afternoon, or night.

10. Toasted S’more Truffle Pops

If you’re looking for something a tad more elegant for a summer dinner party, or something that is super easy to eat, look no further than these truffle pops.  The rich chocolate center is surrounded by crunchy graham cracker crumbs, and soft, torched marshmallow.  A one-biter that will have your guests coming back for more.
