August 10: National S’mores Day

August 10, 2010

National S’mores Day is August 10.  The Hershey Company and Kraft Foods have shared five S’mores recipes. Just click here to view these ideas! Here are a few ways to celebrate with four ways make S’mores. Be sure to have a responsible adult around if you are going try the backyard fire pit idea.

1) Microwave ’em – You can make S’mores, in seconds, right in your microwave. It’s easy; just top each of four graham squares with one chocolate piece and one marshmallow. Place on a microwaveable plate and microwave on HIGH 7 to 10 seconds or until marshmallows puff and chocolate begins to melt. Carefully remove plate from microwave and then cover the S’mores with remaining graham cracker square.

2) Fire up the Fire Pit – Can’t get out to a campground this National S’mores Day? No problem! Make an impromptu campfire setting at home over your backyard fire pit. You can even use real sticks to roast your marshmallows to make yourself feel like you’re immersed in the great outdoors.

3) Sweet Grilled S’mores – Mix it up this year by making S’mores on the grill. Build the S’mores ahead of time then wrap in aluminum foil. Place the wrapped S’mores on the grill and cook 1 to 2 minutes over a medium-hot grill on each side or until the marshmallow is gooey and the chocolate is slightly melted between the graham crackers.

4) Classic Campfire – Everyone loves classic campfire S’mores. If you’re looking for a reason to get together with family and friends before the cold weather returns, plan a camping trip to commemorate National S’mores Day and make the timeless treat the center of your fun. Start by placing half of a chocolate piece on top of half of a graham square. Then, lightly toast a marshmallow over the campfire and place it on top of the chocolate. Finally, top the toasted marshmallow with the remaining graham square half and press together.
