National S'mores Day - August 10th



Today is National S’mores Day! I used to make S’mores with my kids when we spent our summer vacations in Cabin 18 at Harrington Manor State Park. We’d toast marshmallows over a camp fire and sandwich them between graham crackers along with a nice hunk of chocolate. But according to the Kraft website, you can make indoor S’mores in your microwave. Here’s the recipe:


4 Honeymaid graham crackers, snapped in half
4 Jet-Puffed marshmallows
1 Hershey’s milk chocolate bar (1.55 ounces), quartered

Place 4 graham squares on microwaveable plate; top with chocolate and marshmallows. Microwave on high 15 to 20 seconds or until marshmallows puff. Cover with remaining graham squares; press together gently to secure.

There are many other ways to celebrate National S’mores Day.
