It’s National S’mores Day!

Late in the day I learned that today is National S’mores Day. A day devoted to the combination of chocolate, toasted marshmallow and graham crackers? Yes, please. On a side note, I think I’m going to start making up holidays. Tomorrow is National Bring Stacey Chocolate Cupcakes Day. Spread the word.

Upon looking up information on National S’mores Day, I found NUMEROUS s’mores makers online. S’mores. Makers.   You want to know how I made my s’mores today? I used a Zippo lighter, a toothpick and my hands.  Any illusions to my class have been shattered, but at least I don’t own one of these.

Or one of these.

Should anyone want to spend the $10 – $15 on either of these contraptions, I will gladly take your money and come over with my trusty Zippo anytime you like. I’ll even bring the Hershey’s bars.

I’m fairly certain everyone knows how to make a s’more but in honor of the holiday, I’ve posted the recipe (I use that term loosely) below. It’s nearly dusk here on the east coast. Why not end your evening outside with an ooey, gooey s’more?

S’more

Ingredients:

1 graham cracker

1 marshmallow

1 Hershey’s chocolate bar

Directions:

Break graham cracker in half.

Break chocolate bar in half, placing one half on each half of graham cracker.

Heat marshmallow over an open flame. In my case, with a lighter.

Place marshmallow atop the chocolate and place the other graham cracker/chocolate half on top. Smoosh together and enjoy.

Happy S’mores Day everyone!

    Marshmallows are heaven-sent, especially when perfectly toasted.
