I have such great memories of being a Girl Scout and I loved the camp outs we went on. This is one of my best memories of that special time in my life.
The first recorded version of the recipe appeared in 1927 in the publication Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts. Nobody knows the exact origin of this campfire treat.
The word s’more is believed to be a contraction of the phrase “some more”. Very fitting, I think, since I’m always wanting some more of it! A sandwich of two graham crackers, toasted marshmallow and a square of milk chocolate. What could be better than that?
S’mores! They are everywhere right now. All over the Internet, tempting us mere mortals that don’t have a camp fire, fire pit, any kind of fire, really.
