National S’mores Day: 3 Easy Recipes to Make with Your Kids

August 10th is the Perfect Excuse to Indulge in S’mores with Your Kids

When we think of camping, one of the things that come to mind would be those tasty toasted marshmallows with a chocolate bar sandwiched between two graham crackers. Everyone calls them s’mores. After all, it’s the ultimate campfire treat!

While s’mores are made for camping, you can still savor them even if you’re not around a firepit with fellow campers. Whether you’re at home watching a football game or at a park hanging out with……… the fam bam, you can certainly satisfy your sweet tooth with this decadent goodie.

Since people of all ages can’t seem to get enough of s’mores, it’s only fitting that we have a day dedicated to celebrating it. August 10th is National S’mores Day!

There are tons of activities you can do to make the most of this delicious occasion. You can invite friends over to enjoy a s’mores bar, try unique s’mores-flavored foods like cookies or muffins, and of course, set up a campfire in the wilderness to roast marshmallows with the people you love.

However, there’s another idea you might want to try: Make the best s’mores with your little ones without any campfire involved!

 

Easy S’more Recipes to Make with Your Kids

If you’re thinking about celebrating National S’mores Day at home, there’s no better way to do it than by whipping up homemade s’mores with your youngsters. Here are three of the simplest recipes that will make a mouth-watering summer treat:

1. Basic Microwave S’mores

Ingredients:

Large marshmallows

Graham crackers

Milk chocolate candy bars

Directions:

Have your kids place a marshmallow onto a graham cracker.

Microwave it on high for 10 to 12 seconds, or until the marshmallow begins to puff.

Take it out from the microwave and top it with a chocolate bar that should fit the cracker.

Top with another cracker to sandwich the filling.

Flip over so that the chocolate-filled part is facing downward.

Let your kids squish the dessert sandwich together until you see the marshmallow oozing out and the chocolate starting to melt.

 

2. Frozen S’mores

Ingredients:

1 box of graham crackers

1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

2/3 cup mini-marshmallows

2 cups of whipped topping

Directions:

Using a wooden spoon, stir together the chocolate chips, marshmallows, and whipped topping in a large bowl. You can let your kids take turns mixing.

Scoop the mixture onto a cracker square and sandwich it with another square.

Once you’re done with all the s’mores, store them in the freezer for approximately one and a half hours, or until frozen.

Serve frozen.

 

3. Sunbaked S’mores

Ingredients:

Mini marshmallows

Chocolate chips

Graham crackers

Directions:

Ask your kids to put one graham cracker piece on a foil pie plate.

Let them sprinkle it with mini marshmallows and choco chips.

Wrap the pie plate with tin foil and label tins for each child.

Leave it outside under the sun or somewhere hot, preferably at a temperature of at least 85° F. Check after 20 minutes.

Serve them once the chocolates and marshmallows have melted.
