Have you had s’mores yet this season? Did you know that August 10 is National S’mores Day? It’s true! I can’t think of a dessert more worthy of a day of celebration in the summer.

A delicious roundup of s'mores inspired #recipes from MyUntangled Life

For me s’mores conjure up great memories of beach vacations, warm-yet-starting-to-cool August nights, and delicious experiments with s’mores. Over the years my family moved from the standard combination of graham crackers, milk chocolate, and marshmallows to incorporating variations on the typical ingredients. We might use a cinnamon or chocolate graham cracker or try different chocolate elements (dark chocolate, chocolate with raisins or caramel, peanut butter cups) or even add grilled fruit. With all the great variations on marshmallows available now–like the creative offerings from my local confectioner, Sweet Lydia’s— I would love to try experimenting with different flavors for this element.

If outdoor s’mores aren’t in your future, there are even recipes for those of us who are without access to a grill. If basic s’mores aren’t quite your thing, there are a lot of great recipes from bloggers combining the basic elements into other formats like cookies, truffles, or cake. Really, with such great flavors, you can’t go wrong.

In celebration of National S’mores Day we’ve put together ten spins on the campfire classic. You’ll definitely want s’more.

Get to know Kathleen MacArthur (78 Posts)

Kat has enjoyed baking and cooking for as long as she can remember. Her grandmother, Rita, was a great baker—especially of pies. Inspired by Rita, Kat began to be the one to bring dessert to family events. (Her grandfather, Stu, used to say that “Kat is bringing dessert” were some of his favorite words.) Often her family will hide the Christmas cookies she gives them when they have guests in the house. Her husband is a great tester of Kat Treats. When Kat is not baking or blogging, she works in higher education (but secretly dreams that some day she might open a treat truck or bakery/bookstore).
