Today is National S’mores Day!

With a little creativity — and not much effort — delicious s’mores can be made without a campfire.

With a statewide burn ban in effect in Washington state, the campfire-roasted s’more is a no-go, but that just means you have to get a little more creative to enjoy this tasty treat properly… and safely. And what better time to do it than National S’mores Day (celebrated this year on August 10).

The s’more (consisting of a roasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between two pieces of graham cracker) has been around since at least 1927. Over the decades, people have developed plenty of new twists on making this traditional summer favorite without a campfire. Check out these s’mores dippers: just melt some chocolate, coat a graham cracker, and apply mini marshmallows. You can also enjoy watching your marshmallows grow huge as you create s’mores in the microwave. Or you could whip up a batch of s’more brownies. Who says you can only eat s’mores around a campfire?

Celebrate this National S’mores day with a unique, fun, and fire-safe s’mores treat.
