Where did s'mores come from?

The origins of s’mores isn’t clear, but several sources do cite the publication of “Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts” in 1927.

The book contains a recipe for “some mores,” which of course was shortened to s’mores.

Recent history includes manufacturers tweaking the fireside treat with graham cracker sized marshmallows, and graham crackers with the chocolate already on them, but they can’t roast the marshmallow for you, so here’s hoping all your marshmallows roast to perfection.

You can make s’more history with the following books containing twists on the delicious treat.

“S’mores: Gooey, Melty, Crunchy Riffs on the Campfire Classic,” by Dan Whalen.

While contemplating a traditional s’more, mad genius Dan Whalen, the recipe creator behind Tots!, asked a tasty question: What would happen if you kept the essential s’mores architecture — three layers of gooey, melty, and crunchy — but changed it up? You get more than 50 playful, irresistible recipes that completely challenge the definition of a s’more.

Riffs range from classic — Salted Caramel S’mores, Nutella S’mores, and Lemon Meringue S’mores — to crazy. Think Avocado S’mores, S’moresburgers, and the Elvis — bacon, banana, and peanut butter nirvana. Enjoy your s’mores all year long! Every recipe is designed to be made in the broiler as well as over a campfire.
