S’Mores Reimagined: Getting Creative with the Campfire Classic


These innovative s’mores recipes will take your summer dessert to the next level!

For almost one hundred years, s’mores have been a classic summertime dessert. No matter how you prepare them, s’mores are delicious, and the recipe is pretty straightforward. You only need three simple ingredients: graham crackers, marshmallows, and, of course, chocolate. While this combination is undeniably great, these innovative s’mores recipes will take your summer dessert to the next level!

For The Traditionalists

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being a traditionalist. If you like the simple taste of crispy graham crackers, toasted marshmallow, and gooey chocolate, you’re not alone. This summer, though, enhance your traditional preference with locally-made, gourmet breakup chocolate. Milk chocolate is the usual choice for most s’mores lovers, but dark chocolate breakup chocolate would be a delicious alternative. By having both, you can please everyone at your campfire get-together!

Liven Up Your Dessert

S’mores are amazingly delicious, and, honestly, it’s hard to go wrong with any combination of chocolate, marshmallow, and graham cracker. If you’re willing to try something new this summer, try using nonpareils for the chocolate part of your s’mores. Baltimore Orioles orange, black, and white chocolate nonpareils would be ideal for a night when the O’s are playing! If you love the taste of chocolate and nuts, why not try cashew bark or almond bark on your s’mores? You’ll have the same delectable s’mores that you’ve loved for years, but with a high-end, gourmet taste.

Fresh Takes

Perhaps you’re someone who really loves experimenting with candy and different flavors. If this sounds like you, adding delicious, locally-made caramallows to your s’mores this summer will bring another element of sweetness to your dessert. Looking to deconstruct the traditional s’mores recipe altogether? Try using gourmet peanut brittle in place of the graham crackers for a buttery, nutty flavor. No matter what gourmet candy you choose to include, make sure to have lots of napkins on-hand! Even with new ingredients, s’mores will always be as messy as they are delicious!
