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.
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.

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.

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.

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.
