If the past few months have taught us anything, it’s that simple pleasures really are some of the best. Now, that doesn’t mean that it’s just the “same old, same old” thing when it comes to one of our favorite outdoor traditions—s’mores!
We took the challenge of finding some creative s’more ideas with great enthusiasm. It was kind of a “camping to glamping” approach and think that we are definitely keeping a few of these ingredients on hand as we head into fall. Ready to take the challenge?
Caramel Apple S’more
What’s better than a freshly picked Door County Sweet Tango or Honeycrisp apple, thinly sliced, on top of a chocolate caramel square with the marshmallow oozing down the sides of graham crackers? Not much. She’s a keeper.
Peanut butter slathered on graham crackers with fresh strawberries (although you could use any of your favorite fruits) next to your toasted marshmallow. Yes, please.
The Nutty Banana S’more
Not gonna lie. Nutella on anything is a win. But pair it with your grahams, sliced bananas, and that gooey marshmallow? Perfection.
The Scotcharoo S’more
Why does one have to use a graham cracker we thought? So, we split a rice krispy bar in half (lengthwise, of course) and added a thin Reece’s PB cup along with more toasted marshmallow and voilà—you’ve got a new favorite.
Coconut-Caramel Collision S’more
For my coconut loving friends, this is heaven in a s’more. Toast up some coconut flakes in a small pan over the fire. Grab two fudge striped cookies (in keeping with our theme of thinking outside of the box), and toast that marshmallow to the perfect shade of tan. Add your chocolate caramel square and then roll the edges in the toasted coconut. Like one of your favorite Girl Scout cookies—only better. Yup. Better.
Mexican Chocolate S’more
Our adventure was simple. Use the Cinnamon graham crackers (even by themselves they are oh, so yummy!), plain chocolate bar, marshmallow, and then sprinkle with cinnamon and chili powder. Literally delicious.
Milk & Cookies S’more
Back to our adventure of “what else can we use instead of a graham cracker?” So, we went with a classic. Chocolate chip cookies. Homemade, bakery, or out of a package, there is no wrong way to make this s’more. Add a cookies & cream chocolate bar along with that marshmallow, and you might want to even consider dunking this one!
Door County Cherry S’more
Because…well, do we really need a reason? Chocolate, Door County dried cherries, marshmallow, in between vanilla wafers (or a traditional graham). Either way, mic drop delicious. You’re welcome.
