As I write this I am cuddled up in a cabin with the wind going crazy outside and I have one thing on my mind, S’mores. The delicious fireside snack that is synonymous with campouts, campfires, and sticky finger memories. As the sweet treat occupies my mind (and seemingly far away in reality with the current weather), I instead wondered about the origins of the S’more. While there is some debate surrounding the actual origins, the most common story was that the recipe for a S’more was originally published in a Girl Scout Guidebook under the name “Some More” in 1927. It’s unsure of when it turned from “Some More” to “S’more” but the camping treat is sure to be a beloved treat by many.
It has also become increasingly popular to put a twist on the classes S’more! One of my favorite variations is to use a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup instead of a Hershey’s Chocolate Bar. I have had friends who have exchanged the classic graham cracker sandwiching material in place of other cookie varieties such as Oreos, Milano Cookies, or some homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies.
