Some of my favorite memories in life are around a campfire on camping trips or even in the back yard making S’mores. I confess that I like my marshmallows barely warm so I didn’t do a lot of cooking, but I always enjoyed the whole process. (It was also a blast when the occassional marshmallow went up in flames…) Last week I was thrilled when the UPS driver brought me a box from Hershey’s with everything I needed to have S’mores night at our house! (I think the UPS driver secretly wants to live with us by the way.)

I can’t imagine there is anyone out that doesn’t know what a S’more is but just in case, they are the perfect combination of graham cracker, marshmallow, and chocolate.  They’re a classic staple on every family’s camping trip for those nights around an open fire, but the great thing about S’mores is that you can even make them by popping them in the oven at your house.

Right now, Walmart is running a fun campaign to help you plan your S’mores events.  Visit the special Walmart website, choose the fall get together you would like to host, pick your budget and pull the picnic basket handle to see all the must haves for a perfectly sweet time!  While you’re on the site, you can also print out the $1 off Hershey’s Milk Chocolate coupon so you can go ahead and get started on your own S’mores kit!

      Smores are super yummy. My favorite memory is making smores around a bond fire at church camp. Fun times!

    • We love them so much.  When we couldn’t get outside, my kids and I would improvise with the fireplace or stovetop.  What a great idea for this weekend.

      Traditional S’mores are great, but I also like to use Hershey’s Special Dark chocolate in my S’mores.

      Add some Caramel to the smore and it gets even better.  My kids who are 2 and 4 havent had a chance to experience smores yet – great time to start!

      My favorite memory so far is when my two year old tried his first s’more while camping for the first time this past summer. He looked at me with chocolate and marshmallow all over his face and said “Thats good stuff mommy”. I will never forget that moment.

    • Anonymous

      We had planned to make them this summer in the mountains with my two 6 yr olds but it rained all day and we couldn’t start a fire that night.  Instead, we made them in the toaster oven.  They actually turned out great, because the chocolate melted and the boys had fun anyway!

      Now that both my brother and I have moved from our parents house we both have a lot of fun coming back to visit. My mom always has the ingrediants for smores so we can all sit and chat around the campfire and make delicious treats! We love the time we have to enjoy good food and good conversation.

    • Kelly Pellum

      My favorite memory involving s’mores is ending every camp day in Girl Scouts with a marshmellow roast and s’mores. All of the bug bites and sore muscles don’t seem so bad when you’re eating gooey chocolate marshmellow meltyness.

      I’ve tried them with a Reese’s peanut butter cup instead of the hershey’s chocolate.  Pretty good!

    • my current twist is graham, chocolate and guava paste, it’s unique but the guava and the grahams add the sweet and dark or bitter chocolate add some bitterness

      It was July 4th weekend. My husband & I just got home at 11:00 p.m. from having spent the weekend in Gatlinburg. We pulled in the driveway and when we got out of the car I could hear people talking. At the bottom of our back yard were my kids. They were sitting around a fire makeing smores.

    • Favorite s’more memories are while camping and roasting marshmallows of the fire.  I think it’s funny how my husband tries so hard to get them as gooey as he can but loosing most of them in the fire.  
      One time friends did a s’mores party and had a bar of different candy bars and “toppings”.

    • Tara Maple

      My favorite S’mores memory is introducing them to my daughter at a cook-out last year.  Her face looked like she was thinking, “Wow!  My mom is letting me have all of that sugar melted together at one time??”  haha!

    • I love to sit around the camp fire making smores and socializing with everyone there.

    • I loved making Smores as a kid and I still love making them!

    • Nothing quite like a cool summer night…sitting by the campfire…roasting marshmallows to put between a graham and some hersheys! :) yum yum!

      My then-boyfriend (now husband) and I made s’mores on our $9 wal-mart grill during a BLIZZARD. It was a ton of fun and totally worth the cold hands. :)

    • I am sad to say that I have never had a S’more. My family did plenty of camping when I was a kid (because it was CHEAP!), but we never got into this tradition. HOWEVER, my husband and I love to camp, so this is something we will do next time!!

      Twist: I’d like to add some chopped walnuts!

      One of my favorite S’more’s memories is usually around Halloween. My family always has some sort of fall/halloween party which always consist of a bonfire. We have a huge family (my Dad is the oldest of 12) so that means a lot of kiddos! S’mores are and easy and fun treat and has been something my family has made for years. We have often changed up the chocolate a little and instead of using plain milk chocolate we would often use the cookies and cream or other chocolates that would consist of nuts or a crunchiness. But there is nothing like your original S’more’s taste!

    • I LOVE smores!! I even tried to make them using my gas fireplace one time because I was craving them sooo bad!! 

    • Samiee Slaughter

      My favorite memory? The time my sister flicked a flaming marshmellow. It fell on dry grass and started a fire in my parent’s backyard. It wasn’t funny at the time, but it sure is now!

      I never made s’mores that I can remember when I was a kid so my favorite memory is making s’mores with my husband and my kids every Christmas for the past two years at the annual Festival of Lights in Charleston.  My kids love it and it make me so happy to see the smiles on their faces.

      I can remember as a kid hanging around the camp fire cooking smores with my uncle bobby and also him somehow melting milk bottles and them making crazy sounds in the campfire. That may be a little off subject but that is what I remember….strange what kids remember the most…which is why you must always be on gaurd with what you say or do around them ;)

      My favorite S’Mores memory is from when I was in junior high school. My family would go camping on the weekends and it was the best times. My brother and I would ride bikes and fish and run around the camp site until we were exhausted and at night we would sit around the camp fire and sing or tell stories or play cards and make s’mores.

    • Always have loved the gooey-ness of them! YUM!

    • Try adding pretzels to your Smores!  It adds a little more crunch and a salty taste to counteract all the sweet ingredients.  Try melting the chocolate just slightly to make the pretzels stick.  I volunteered at a Girl Scout camp, and my group of 3rd graders there loved it!

      My father-in-law introduced me to a new concept recently: Peep smores. When the craving comes without a campfire handy, he preps them in the toaster oven.

    • Cheryl Rogers

      These were a must have for any camping trip.   I liked the marshmallows to burn just a little bit , added to the flavor.   It was an edible science experiment.    You cannot beat a family gathered around a fire pit roasting marshmallows and getting it in each others hair!   Such memories…….

      Ok True story: I ws 6 years old and my family and I were roasting marshmallows and making smores. My mom had gone over all the rules with me and my 4 years old brother about fire safetly and what not. We are all ejnoying the night when my moms marshmallow catches of fire. Instead of blowing it out ( like we were instructed to do) she starts swinging it around! It flies off and lands directly on my eyeball. It is on my eye and still on fire! Finally someone blows it our and takes me to the ER. Yould should have seen the look on the doctors face as my mom tried to explain that she hit her daugher in the eye with a ” Flaming-Flying-Marshmallow”!!!!!

      The S’more’s memory that comes to mind the best comes around the fall season. My family is huge ( my father the oldest of 12) and we always have a fall/halloween party which always consist of a bonfire. I can always count on having my S’more’s and has became a tradition with all the kiddos (believe me there is a lot of them). It is a wonderful easy treat and still seems to bring the kid out of some of us adults. We have often used the cookies and cream chocolate or some sort of other chocolate with nuts or crunchiness in it. But we always tend to revert back to the original s’more’s!

    • I used to camp in Upstate New York with my parents. Favorite times where sitting around the fire listening to my dad sing while all of us kids roasted marshmellows. Of course we burnt most of them and made our dad eat them cuase they were too burnt for us.

      Best by the campfire but a gas grill will do in the heat of Southern Florida.  Did them July 4th over the bbq.  Like the marshmallows nice and brown.  Went to North Carolina to a family reunion 2 years ago Thanksgiving and we did them on the beach over a bonfire, Awesome!

      It has been a while since we have had smores.  I wonder how fast the choc and marshamllows would melt in this sweltering heat we have had this summer.  Could we sit them in a frying pan or glass dish outside with a glass dish? More of a kids experiment but still a good way to get the kids out of the house.

      I had my first smores in a cabin at Gatlinburg with my husband.  He just got back from overseas due to 9/11 and we spent a week there.  We had fun starting the log fire and making a mess with all of that marshmallow and chocolate.  But it was so yummy.

    • Cathryne Collins

      We live near the coast, south of Houston. A few years ago when Hurrican Ike hit we lost all power, of course. During the outage, after the storm, my younger  brother decided he really wanted a s’more & got us all craving one! Since there wasnt much getting out of the house at that point, we did with what we had: mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, & vanilla wafers! We used all our candles & toothpicks to melt the marshmallows & had ourselves a nice mini-s’more-making party. Its a sweet memory of us all having a great time in a bad situation.

    • Smores are a must when you are camping. We camped at one place where open fires were prohibited – I made smores with an electric frying pan. Don’t like camping? You can make them in the microwave!

      I can remember when I was little and now I am 50…we would go camping in the mountains of Maggie Valley NC and we would have a campfire and make smores with other things that would could cook such as franks, marshmellows, and we could really get our imaginations go wild…the smores were always the desert..

      graham crackers, marshmallows, hershey’s chocolate bars, Peanut Butter, and Banana… YUM

      This summer has been hot enough that we can heat everything up outside with no fire. It’s not quite as magical. :)

    • I remember Smores every night at the campfire on a family reunion camping trip with my then-boyfriend/now-husband’s family. :)

      Girl Scout campouts. I was a scout for 7 years as I child and 13 years as an adult. I never get tired of Smores. My favorite way to cook is to sandwich the marshallow and chocolate between to graham crackers the wrap in foil and place on the coals.

    • so many fun memories with smores.  now with my own children i love watching them get marshmallow all over their faces.  one twist to the original is to use the Keebler fudge rounds instead of graham crackers and chocolate, makes it one step easier.

      Not only do I have a great memory but an add-on too! MY 9 year old neice came to visit me at my new house in SC. Before we moved here, I lived in her town in PA and was her Girl Scout leader. This was her first visit to my new house and she was super excited when she saw the fire-pit we recently bought for the backyard. When pointed to it and said “we have to make S’Mores Aunt Keri!” She knew they were my favorite so there was no way I was going to deny an opportunity to make them! We saved it until her last night; bad choice… by the time we got home from our day-outing, the rain had soaked all my firewood. Being a good Girl Scout, I improvised! We turned the broiler in the oven on and threw them on a foil lined cookie sheet. We both sat on the kitchen floor and watched them cook. They were SOOO good! No burnt parts just total golden brown marshmallow goodness! Don’t know where the idea came from but we added ice cream sprinkles over the gooey marshmallow for some color! Great memory we will always have.

      We went camping for my 10th birthday. I had only had smores once at this time. And had mentioned it ALL the time about how I wanted to have some again. My parents would always brush it off, so I stopped asking. To my surprise, my camping birthday turned into smores every night! They told me after, that they saved the smores as a birthday surprise all because it was the theme of my birthday!  And now I do the same for my little one….and to be honest, I love them so much, he has no idea its a secret treat for me too! :)

    • My favorite memory is the first time we made S’mores with our four-year-old niece. She had so much fun roasting the marshmallows!

    • Emily Freeman

      A fun twist to the traditional recipe would be to use a large Reese’s Cup in place of the square of regular chocolate.  It’s also delicious with Hershey’s Dark Chocolate in place of the milk chocolate (and more “heart healthy”- haha!)

    • Every summer when I was a child, my family would go camping in the North Carolina mountains for the whole month of July.  I have a ton of memories from these trips.  One memory is making my first smore and LOVING it.  Now we take my kids back to these mountains every summer and needless to say they enjoy the smores now too.

      Smores are a necessity in my household.  We make them enough that I have to make sure we have graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate in the pantry at all times.  Let’s see there was the time, we “roasted” the marshmallows over the grill, one dropped on the grill and made an absolute total mess that never really came out (RIP grill), or there was the time the marshmallow exploded in the microwave–hubby still doesn’t know about this, or the wonderful gooey faces my kids make when they are eating them. Lots of memories with smores.  Love them!

      My favorite memory is a funny one: When my brother & I were teenagers, one evening we wanted to make S’mores but we didn’t have a camp fire. We used a scented candle & the marshmallows ended up tasting like blueberry.

    •  My favorite S’more’s memories are when I was growing up my family would go camping 3 to 4 times a year and at night my dad would make a bonfire and my mom would bring out the things to make smores with. My two other sisters and I would fight to see who could make the “BESTEST” smores. As I have gotton older, I invite the family over including all the niece and nephews and we all gather around the campfire and make more memories and more smores. My niece and nephews are starting their own smore traditions; They try to see who can stack their smores the highest and who can eat theirs the fastest.

    • Best recent memory involving S’mores. We don’t have gas appliances in our home, only electric, so my husband took a mini cookstove, placed in the middle of the kitchen table, and we all sat around cooking our s’mores INSIDE the house.

      I was on a over night Girl Scout camping trip. I learned so much! How to whistle using an acorn cap, how to cook stew ‘underground’ in a dutch oven, and how to make s’mores. I didn’t know what it was. I was just told to ‘toast’ my marshmallow….a blackened one later, they said try again. I finally had the perfect brown gooey mess almost dripping from my stick. I walked over the Girl Scout Leader and she helped me sandwich my first S’more….I remember opening my small mouth wide while trying to get my first bite. Oh YUM!!! Then something clicked in my head. Being the ingenious one, I declared I knew why they named them that….cause “I want S’ more please!!” I shouted.  LOL. What a great memory from childhood.

      My favorite memory is making “indoor” s’mores with my parents, 3 brothers and sister when the power went out when we were all little. We had no idea that having a gas stove could be so useful and FUN when we had no power during a storm. :)

    • We like to make s’mores with dark chocolate Hershey’s bars and colored marshmallows! Yum!

    • My best smores memory is in front of the fire place with the kids making them. My family is a huge chocolate fan so the kids love smores on the chocolate graham crackers.

    • Ok, I was thinking I was the only person who used Reese’s in my s’mores.  My favorite memory is when my husband and I were dating and we went camping with my now step-son & and 2 of his friends.  I had never been so scared in my life, but we had fun. A camp fire with roasted hot dogs  and smores.  I can’t wait for the fall to go camping.

      Some of my favorite childhood memories are revolve around campfires making S’mores with our little twist, of course…. Sometimes instead of Hershey’s Chocolate we would put Reese’s cups and that was to die for! Creamy melted chocolate with peanut butter and a toasted marshmallow, what more could a girl ask for! My fiance and I are getting married next summer and we have already made plans to give away wedding favors each with 4 graham crackers, 2 hershey’s and 2 Reese’s and homemade marshmallows, sending our close friends and family home with S’more love :) This would be awesome to win before the wedding!

    • My little boy wanted a camping trip for his 3rd bd.  So he got a tent for his bday and put it up in backyard at his grandparents and we all sat outside and had dinner over the fire that ended w yummy smores then he and daddy got to sleep in his new tent

      As a family we always made s’mores on every camping trip we went on.  Since they were such a hit in my family my mom started making them in the oven for us.  I’d eat a s’more every day if my figure would allow it! ;)

    • The most important part of a bonfire. Bananna split S’mores! use strawberry marshmellows, hersheys choc. bar,bananna slices. graham cracker. UMM, UMM.Also like them with cocunut marshmellows.

      My kids no longer think smores are a fun thing.  they want them nightly.   They love to see me heat them up in microwave and the marshmellow puffs up.  little things make them happy.  

    • When I was younger we would go on 2 week vacations in my parent’s motor home and just drive from historical site to historical site. Camping just wouldn’t have been the same without s’mores by the first in our campgrounds. I used to get adventurous and try adding different things to the mix and my favorite to this day is still a little bit of McDonald’s strawberry jam. Just squeeze a little out onto the cracker before your chocolate and marshmallow – it’s like a strawberry chocolate pie! Delicious :)

      My favorite memory is camping in the blue ridge mountains with my family!  We would make s’mores by the fire and listen for animals in the mountains.

    • Smores are just part of the 4th of July for us.  But I remember one year as a kid.  Mom used to cut our graham crackers in half, but our aunt made us a smore with two whole long graham crackers and an entire Hershey bar apiece.  Wow oh wow!  I still remember how exciting that was.

      it is just a joy to pass this tradition along to our children now…

    • My favorite memory is making smores with my family on the back deck.  We had a small fire pit, and when the weather started to get cool, we made smores and laughed and spent time together as a family.  Now that I have kids of my own, we make sure to make the same memories with them. :)

      A few years age my husband and I went on a cruise to Alaska.  Every meal was rich and scrumptous, but after a while I became tired of the fare (I know that’s hard to believe).  On our sixth day, we came into a port and our excursion was to go whale watching and a stream-side salmon bake.  After we finished eating, we saw they had small campfires set up, a large rubbermaid tub full of marshmallows another full of graham crackers, and another with Hershey’s chocolate.  That was the BEST s’more ever made!!!

      We had a Thanksgiving family reunion in Oklahoma one year and made s’mores. They are delicious in the wintertime too! And a fun twist for me would be to add a drop of peanut butter onto the grahams. Yum!

    • Really simple twist is to grab the cinnamon graham crackers instead of the regular one…such a nice change!

    • It was Dec 2007, we lived in Fort Riley, KS and my husband was home from Iraq on r&r. We’d had an ice storm which knocked out the power for most of the day but since we had a gas stove, we could still cook. We were very cold and decided to make S’mores- indoors! We made as many as we could along with hot cocoa. My husband, both kids, and I cuddled up in bed eating S’mores and drinking hot cocoa. It’s one of my fondest memories.

      My family didn’t have much money.   Raising 6 children was hard for my parents.   But the one treat we all got was when the hot dogs were done and off the Bar  B Q grill we all got the marshmallows out and made S’mores.  It didn’t happen often, maybe once a summertime, so it was very, very special for the family!

      My favorite s’more memory is my daughter’s 9th birthday  party campout.  We played an outdoor movie and roasted marshmallows over an open fire.  The kids had a great time and they tasted awesome.  We even used the giant marshmallows- they were a  huge sucess!

    • Jacky Souders

      I love using different flavored graham crackers! They add a nice fun twist to the flavor!

    • My favorite S’mores moment–Sitting around a youth campfire (next to a boy I had a serious crush on) and burning my marshmallows (for the S’mores we were making) on purpose so that I could give them to him as I knew he liked the burnt ones and so that he would roast one for me since he thought I couldn’t roast them without burning them. Ahh–young love!

      My favorite memory was actually quite recently.  We went camping with our adult daughter, her boyfriend and our two younger children.  We cooked hot dogs over the fire and then made mountain pies and made s’mores.  It was awesome!

      I can remember what we used to call “trail rides” at my small school in Mississippi.  We would have dinner at school on a Friday night, and then do s’mores, and actually spend the night at school! The next morning, we would get up and ride horses that belonged to the some of the faculty.  So much fun!  You don’t hear about things like this today in school.  It was such a time of fun and fellowship.  I will never forget it. :)
      My favorite twist on S’mores:  Smore’s cupcakes!  A double chocolate chip cupcake made with Hershey’s chocolate chips with marshmallow frosting and graham  cracker sprinkles on top!  Everywhere I have ever taken these, they have disappeared fast, and my kids love them! 

    • denise stevens

      My family didn’t have much money. It was hard for them raising 6 children.   My favorite memory of S’mores was when the hot dogs were cooked and off the grill we would toast (or burn) the marshmallows for S’mores.  Now, this was a special treat because it might only happen once a summertime.

      Over the years, my husband and I have introduced many friends to s’mores around our fire pit.  Since we live in FL, there’s only a couple months a year where it gets cool enough at night to sit by a fire outdoors, so we take full advantage and have lots of gatherings at our place.  There’s nothing more amusing than seeing a grown adult squeal with delight at trying s’mores for the first time : )

    • Had smores kits as are wedding favors back in June but somehow all of us forgot to put them out at the reception!! My parents had alot of smores to get rid of! II personally like to add some peanut butter on my graham cracker!

      Favorite memory is camping and making s’mores, it’s a must have when you’re camping out :)

    • Once when I was pregnant with my first, the power went out and I was really hungry for s’mores. My sister had this s’mores maker that you cooked the marshmallow over a little sterno flame. It was really reassuring to sit and watch the blizzard while eating s’mores. Warmed me right up while sitting in a cold apartment.

      The perfect roasted marshmallow is crispy golden on the outside and melted all the way through the middle, yum!  and gooey.

      We like to add cinnamon to ours. Goes great with Hot chocolate on Halloween night after trick or treating.

    • Me and the kids always add peanut butter to our traditional smores. We also go to the barn and hang out as a family with the horses. We eat smores in the pasture while the horses hang out around us! Our all time favorite will have to be hanging in base housing over the grill with all the military families eating smores, sharing frustrations, smiles, and good times.  When you live the military life you find ways to have inexpensive and relaxing family fun with all of our military family no matter where we go! It gets even better when we share a smores fight….hahahah. very sticky and yummy when it is all over

      We did a lot of camping as a family when we were younger and so the stories I have about S’mores could fill an entire book but one of the funniest memories I have while we were making S’mores was about my cousin. We were all roasting our marshmallows telling fun stories about the past and my uncle asked my cousin if he could move one of the bricks around the fire so he could rest his stick(or palmetto stem as we always used) on it and not have to hold it up. Without thinking he walks up and with his bare hand picks up the brick and moves it and goes to sit back down. All of the rest of us were balking at him with open mouths in utter astonishment that he was not screaming in pain from the heat of the fire. My Uncle then states to his boy, “son don’t you think that was a little hot?” All at once my cousin begins to scream and jump up and down and do the “burning hand dance” as we all named it. Thankfully we were on the edge of the lake and we are all yelling at him to put his hand in the lake to cool it off, so he runs down there and cools off his hand. So to put some minds at east the brick was not extremely hot and his hand was not burnt at all just a little red (which is why we can laugh about it now) and therefore every time we sit around the fire we recall this story and the whole family will laugh and do the famous “burning hand dance!”

      Recently, we’ve discovered the joys of smores via our oven!  Place graham crackers on a cookie sheet, topped with chocolate, and then 2 marshmallows.  Stick in the oven & turn to “broil”.  I would only recommend trying it if you can literally sit there & watch your oven (i.e., if you don’t, your oven could catch on fire from marshemallows), but assuming you can watch like a hawk, it works great!

    • I remember sitting by the fire with my 3-year-old and her very first s’more…she was trying SO hard not to get goo on her hands or face (she was very prissy about getting dirty)  lol  it was too cute

    • We made Smore’s last week using Reese’s peanut butter cups in place of Hershey’s chocolate bars…they were delicious!!

    • Having Smore’s with my kids around a camp fire this past year.

    • Girl Scouts campfires–we always roasted marshmallows and then made s’mores! Ah the good ol’ days…

    • adding peanut butter on your graham cracker make it SO MUCH BETTER! give it a try!!

    • I made them at camp when I was younger around a campfire and singing songs. Good times.

    • When we were kids my sister and I would dip the long pretzel sticks with chocolate and then stick a marshmallow on the end and roast it. The best twist on S’mores EVER!

    • I like using the cinnamon graham crackers, they’re extra crunchy and the cinnamon and chocolate are a nice mix. Yummy!

      We love smores at our house! they are a must have when we are camping. I once saw a different version that paula deen did so I thought I’d share it, so yummy!!

      Paula Deen’s Chocolate Chip Cookie S’mores
      Serving Size: 5 Time: 15 minutes Difficulty: Easy Ingredients: Canola oil3 bananas10 store-bought chocolate chip cookies (the larger the better)1 cup graham cracker crumbs1 cup small marshmallows1 cup chocolate chips Preparation: Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Brush grill with canola oil. Instructions: Cut
      the bananas in half, lengthwise and grill, skin side down just until
      warm. Remove warmed banana from the skin and cut again in half.On
      a piece of aluminum foil, place 1 cookie. Top evenly with banana
      slices, marshmallows, chocolate chips, graham cracker crumbs and top
      with another cookie. Wrap foil around the sandwich and place on the
      grill until warmed through and melted.


    • My favorite memory is actually the first and only time I have ever made S’mores. My whole family and I went to the lake for a week with my aunt whom is battling lung cancer. We sat around the campfire and made smores and popcorn and telling scary stories. It was a really nice memory.

    • We love to take our left over Easter candy and use that to make smores. Peeps make an awesome marshmallow and the sugar coatings really crunches when cooked over the fire. The Chocolate bunnies work great as the chocolate too more if it is a dove chocolate bunny. ;) It is a great cure to using up the extra candy and a really yummy treat! We do this every year with friends not too long after Easter.

We was camping and it was at midnight and the sun was still out.. it was so beautiful sitting by the fire with my hunny eating S’mores I’ll never forget that weekend.. :)  And we made them the original way!!

      What a treat s’mores are! Camping with family, choosing the sticks on which to toast the marshmallow, discussing those that like the lightly toasted marshmallow and those that love the burned marshmallow.. then, put that s’more together and share with whomever wants to share!! then.. for some.. repeat the process as soon as consumed!!.. Wonderful memories created… <3 it!

    • I have a great memories involving smores! Last Summer was the best because my husband was home(he is deployed this summer). We would get in the backyard with our 2 little boys, light up our homemde firepit and eats smores til we about get sick. And we discovered if you substitute reeses peanut butter cups instead of the hersheys that its just as good! Of course we love both. Smores are a must have for any family!

      When we lived in Georgia the church we attended would have a fall festival with bon fire roasting hot dogs on the fire and of course roasting marshmallows to make smores with everyone was asked to bring either chocolate, marshmallows or graham crackers and everything else drinks, chips, hot dogs and buns were provided.  I miss the hay ride after have a smore or two then going and roasting more marshmallows for more smore’s as soon as you got back to warm up.  I love to use Hershey’s special dark instead of the milk chocolate or a little both is good too.  Can’t wait for the weather to cool down a bit more so we can have a bon fire at our new house and start some new smore traditions.

      My favorite memory was in high school when instead of actually making s’mores, we got into a marshmellow fight.  It was all fun and games until my dad made me get up early the next morning to clean up so ants won’t invade our yard.

    • One of my best memories was last year before my mother-in-law passed away from cancer.  She was too ill to go on our annual camping trip, so instead we set up tents in her back yard and had a BBQ with s’mores for dessert.  It was a good time!  :)

    • We were having a backyard camp out with our 4 kids.  I don’t know how they had gone so long without actually having a s’more, but some how it had happened.  We started up a fire in the fire pit, taught each child how to roast the marshmallow just right and then put it all together.  Apparently, this was too calm of an activity for them because this later turned into them warming up the marshmallows and then flinging them at each other.  It became a full blown war, but they had a blast.

      I have many memories of growing up and making/eating s’mores with my family. My parents owned a piece of property in the county. We would go on the weekends and just “be there”.  We would build a fire, sit around, listen to the radio, hike with my dog, momma always packed a picnic and just have an all day/Saturday lazy time! As it would get dark, we would make s’mores as dessert :-) I can still see my daddy unfolding a coat hanger and mother putting the graham crackers & chocolate together. Very good memories for me since both of my parents passed away in 2008. We make s’mores with our children as often as they want, no matter the season, so that they can treasure their memories. 

    • I accidentally bought cinnamon graham crackers for Girl Scout camp one year. Now every time we go camping they want to make sure we are having s’mores with Cinnamon graham crackers and they won’t eat it any other way!

    • Cinnamon on smores is yummy!

    • Our last camping trip with marshmallow juice everywhere! The Racoons wouldn’t leave us alone!

      My favorite S’mores memory is when it was getting cold we didn’t ahve a lot of money so we set up camp in the kitchen, rosted marshmellows on the gas stove and made S’mores that way. The kisd didn’t even realize they were missing out on anything!!

      Favorite s’mores family memory is having to turn the AC on so that we could make a fire in the fireplace.  I like to make mine with graham cracker, peanut butter, and a marshmellow.

    • Favorite Memory would have to be, sitting by the fireplace as a young girl in our home with my family all of us holding metal hangars over the fire roasting our marshmellows to make the smores!

      Teaching my 9 year old son to make them in the microwave.  He thought it was cool.
      He made them every afternoon for a week. He even tried using bananas but didn’t do to well.

    • Thanksgiving 2010- After the big dinner was over and most of the company gone, we lit the fire pit in our backard and sat around making Hershey S’mores and telling ghost stories. The kids loved it!!

      When I can’t have a bonfire, and I have a super craving for s’mores (which is quite often :) ) I pop’em in the microwave BUT I add a little something special to mine. Of course I keep the basics, but I add a little bit of JIF peanut butter. SO DELICIOUS! It’s like heaven in your mouth!…and of course the favorite memory I have with s’mores is always accidently catching my marshmallow on fire and having to try and slide the crusty coat of to enjoy that mouthwatering combination of marshmallows, chocolate, and honeymaid graham crackers!

      We make S’mores after trick-or-treating every year!  This gives the dads something to keep the kids busy while all of the moms check and sort candy!  I would LOVE to win the kit for our annual Halloween party!

    • I like to use dark chocolate, and lots of it, instead of milk chocolate. it makes it seem all the more sinful and decadent. I like to put the cracker and chocolate near the campfire on a piece of foil so that the chocolate has time to melt. The gooier the better :)

      Not much of a camping girl, but we loved to make them in the microwave, it was so cool to see them “grow”…

    • I went camping with my family one year. We all enjoyed s’mores and after our tummies were full we found a new use for the marshmallows. We warmed them up so they were gooey and had a marshmallow fight! It was tons of fun but took days to get all of the stickiness out of out hair.

    • Smores!  YUMMY!!!  Favorite memory:  the first time my little boy ever had smores on his very first camping trip at just over a year old!  I will never forget the look of excitement on his face as he sat in his little camping chair by the campfire and waited for us to make his smore. And, I will never forget the ooey, gooey mess on his face as he enjoyed every single bite!!! Gotta love smores :)

      My favorite memory is when my son set up camp outside for my daughter-in-law and my granddaughter and grandson.  They had the campfire and all the trimmings.  The kids got scared so he moved the camp inside before they made the s’mores.  They had to use the stove to melt the marshmallows so they could have the s’mores.  It turned out to be so much fun!!

    • Along with s’mores try wrapping dough around a stick for biscut on a stick over the fire!

      I loved making S’mores while trying NOT to catch my marshmellow on fire.  My brothers of course loved to catch it on fire, but I was always the “mom-type” and worried someone would get hurt!

      We like to enjoy these treats on those cool fall evenings! We use Fudge Stripe cookies and marshmallows instead of separate graham crackers & chocolate. They’re less messy & just as good!!

    • I remember being a girl scout and going camping for the first time. Of course we made s’mores and it was the best sweet I have ever had. Now I enjoy making them with my own daughter. She gets very messy but the memories are worth it

      Try adding a bit of peanut butter to your next S’Mores.  Tastes great, and it helps eep the ingredients from sliding around until they meld together.

      After having my baby boy i went off sugar since I was bf him and I am a chocoholic!! So this was killing me not eating sweets during the day. when i got s’mores ingredients on sale I couldn’t wait for him to go to bed so I could pop a s’more in the microwave and indulge in my weakness. Now I like them over a fire too but I could never get it gooey enough. Plus I liked my marshmallows burnt when cooked over open flame!

      My little girl likes s’mores as well. She asks all the time mommy can we make “some mores”.

      Smores were a fun treat that we only had with our Aunt. She didn’t have children of her own so she made sure all of her neices were spoiled!
      As a twist, try making smores with york peppermint patties instead of hersey’s chocolate. Just as yummy with a minty flair!

    • Kimberly Naff

      Instead of using Hershey’s chocolate, I like to add an Ande’s mint. It’s a whole new flavor profile. And if you don’t have an oven or an open flame, you can use a microwave! Just pop in half a graham cracker topped with chocolate and marshmallow for 15-30 seconds, or until super-fluffy-looking, and top with the remaining graham cracker half. This way, you can still enjoy this delicious treat even if you only have mini-marshmallows *and* your chocolate gets a little melted, too.

      Fall festival at church when I was a teenager…great friends, great times around the campfire making smores of course!! :)

    • Favorite memory. My boys had went camping the other night with the neighbor boys and that left my daughter,age 5, home with just my husband and myself. she felt left out and was moping around.even though we really had no where in our back yard to start a fire,my husband cleared out a small area just big enough for a tiny fire,perfect for her to roast some marshmallows to make her smores! she had a blast getting all sticky and we made some great memories with her that night!

    • I had S’mores when I was a kid at a barbecue with my cousin. She would burn the marshmallows and eat them anyway. My twist was to put a little caramel syrup on the S’more.

      My favorite way to eat a smore is to cook them in the microwave and watch the marshmallow as it grows and expands. So fun… and also, very, very yummy.

    • My favorite memory is of my daughter eating her first smore!  She was 2 and it was ALL OVER HER!  But, of course, she loved every bite! :)

    • I remember the time my family had a cookout at the farm and it was my cousin’s job to bring the smores. Instaed he brought marshmallows a hersheys bar but left the graham cracker so we had to use cereal on the outside. it was hilarious trying to crunch the cereal over the melted chocolates and marshmallow.

    • David Crowley

      I remember me and my brother used to get in arguments around the campfire as kids about how the name was pronounced… Sumores vs. smoores

      Well, little did we know, we maybe got one or two made because of all the arguing, while my little sister had a big smile on her face as she finished off the fifth one.

    • as kids I would go to my friends house and we would put little choc. chips on the graham cracker and a marshmallow on the graham cracker and put it in the microwave. and have an after school snack. :)

      While visiting my sister’s home a couple of years ago, we started a tradition and made some awesome memories. It was winter time, but at the beach, and in Florida. So, perfect bon fire weather. My two neices and my daughter learned how to make their first smores and loved melting the marshmellows almost too much. We ate so many smores on that trip that when my daughter and i got back home in Maryland we started making smores in the oven using little honey graham bunnie cookies (by Aunt Annie’s, can’t remember what they are called).
      They were to die for. We ate bowl after bowl with hot chocolate. Yum :)

    • smores are not just for camp time! we have an Easter tradition of makin smores with peeps :) everyone gets peeps and chocolate bars in there basket..yummm ( and watchin the peeps grow in the micro is fun )

    • I remember when I was having a bond fire for my birthday, and I think I was turning 8. I had a “boyfriend” and a few friends there. My older cousin and I had been planning a scare for them for weeks! We had made up a crazy elaborate story  about the “white walker” that lived in our wood shed. He had killed many people with an anvil… and we made sure we had one! In the midst of us all eating s’mores, by cousin came out of the woodshed dressed as this monster and scared us all! Sadly, my boyfriend threw his s’more down and we had to call his parents because he was so scared! What a waste of a good s’more….

      My favorite memory was making smores over the stove while I was babysitting my little brothers and sisters. (this was years ago)  We didn’t plan smores, but we just happened to have all the ingredients.  My mom prolly would not have let us if she were home.  But we had a blast… and they never caught fire…  The toasting was so even. THey turned out perfect. 

    • My memory is camping as a family and making smores.  We would all try to see who could eat their’s the fastest and always ended up with a burned tounge.Our parents would warn us be we would shovel it in as fast we we could. I never won!!

    • Elizabeth Fann

      My favorite was an early dismissal from elementary school on a Friday (well, several Fridays) where my parents would load us and the pop up camper up and head out. I can’t tell you how many state parks we ate S’mores at. Those were good times :)

    • I like to use Fudge Stripe cookies for the outside..it already has chocolate on it..and the chocolate actually melts..unlike real  chocolate bars.

    • Mike Burwick

      First smores for my step son were this summer in his home in Brazil…they don’t sell marshmallows or graham crackers like we do in the US.

    • We camp ALOT! We usually camp with my sister-in-law. Last year around Christmas time there was an arts and craft show. She went to it one day and I went to it another day. Over Thanksgiving, we talked about the show and she asked me if I noticed the s’more makers for the microwave. I responded with laughter and replied, “Those are the DUMBEST things I have ever seen! If I wanna make a s’more at home I will just pop it in the microwave and I would NEVER use one camping!” Well, Christmas day we got together and when I went to open the gift she started laughin…Yep, you guessed it she had bought me one of those things at the craft show! She Already had it when I was saying how dumb it was! Then this spring when we went camping, it rained and rained.Of course I didn’t have that thing in my camper and YEP sure wish that I had. I could have made a nice s’more with it! 

      We spread peanut butter on the graham crackers then add the Hershey chocolate and roasted marshmallow! We make with all kinds of things Reeses cups, york peppermint patties, almond joys…ect ect..we are S’more fanatics!!

      Growing up, we went camping twice a year as a family with our pop-up camper.  To us kids, it was just the way we vacationed.  Turned out, we vacationed that way because it was inexpensive.  And smores were always on the menu.  Getting the marshmallows  perfectly brown and melty was awesome.  And occasionally we would set them on fire on purpose, blow them out, eat the burnt crust and do it all over again. 

    • I like to use Fudge stripe cookies instead of graham crackers.  They already have chocolate on them and the chocolate actually melts, unlike the candy bars.  Also real simple..just marshmallow and cookies.

    • My favorite S’more moment was about two month ago when my 7yr old found out she was going camping. She had never had a s’more she saw a picture in one of the All You Magazines. Anyway, she was more excited about being able to make s’mores than she was about the camping trip! She loves them! So now we have to make them at least once a month!

    • Amanda Byelich Stewart

      My favorite s’mores memory is of my first camping trip. I was such a nervus and shy child and sitting around the campfire with my family making s’mores allowed me to open up. Even when it was dark and scary there was something warm and comforting about sitting around the campfire. Even to this day I can’t camp or hang by a bonfire without making s’mores. It’s a requirement!!! I can’t wait until I can do it with my own children :)

    • i remember making smores with my family when we camped almost every summer growing up.

    • Donna Weathers

      The first time my kiddo had s’mores.  He was about three years old, and we were at a local wilderness park enjoying a family fall event and telling ghost stories around a camp fire.  He couldn’t get over the fact that we were okay with him getting all gooey messy and eating as many s’mores as he wanted!

    • Raven Wildharber

      Camping with friends.  We’d put bananas on our smores.  YUM.

    • We found some fantastic caramel marshmallows last year.  They made the best s’mores.  We got so desperate for s’mores one night that we made them on the back porch with sterno cans.

    • Genevieve Lewis

      It’s always fun to have the whole family together around the bonfire to make smores!

    • I have never actually had a s’more, but I love s’more flavored foods.  Every fall and winter I roast marshmallows for my son, but this year I think he will be big enough to finally make his own s’more. And I will even try one too!

      We decided to have S’mores for the kids and bought the large marshmallows. Instead of roasting in a fire, we decided to heat them up in the microwave and….the mallows grew 20 times their original size!!! Needless to say, we gave a whole new meaning to messy.

      The last (and most favorite) time my family made s’mores, we tried the
      giant marshmallows!!It was a tremendous success. We have 5 kiddos; 13,
      12, 11, 10 and 2. This was a first for the wee one and the big kids had
      more fun than the littlest even. They were amazed by the giant marshmallows and getting 2 whole graham cracker each and an entire Hershey bar. This was awesome in their eyes… and mine, watching them (try to) eat a gigantic s’more! There were s’mored feet, faces and laps, but it was awesome!

    • My favorite memory making s’mores was with the children from our church last fall at Lake Junaluska in N.C.

    • Two years ago a group of my friends rented a cabin and smores were on the agenda!  It was too cold to roast them around the campfire, so we huddled around the little woodburning heater and ate smores all night long.  I can’t wait to do this with my son when he gets older!

    • The winter my daughter was two, we had an ice storm. That evening, we got the fireplace going & made S’mores. It was her first taste of S’mores & I got the greatest picture of her huge smile with smeared chocolate all over her face.  :)

      And another great way to eat S’mores is to use a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup instead of a Hershey’s chocolate bar. Incredible!

      S’mores at family reunions bring smiles to my face and recently trying them in the microwave with my kids was a fun experiment.  The twist you may decide to try it using “peeps” instead of marshmallows.  My mom first did this with the grandkids when she realized she was out of marshmallows.  It was a hit and the grandkids expect s’mores with peeps now!

      A fun memory I have is from when I went to visit my family in Brazil and took all the items necessary to make smores there. The day my aunts, cousins, brothers, sisters, sisters-in-law, nephews… came to my Mom’s house to see me and my family, I made smores for them. They were all so excited. We don’t have smores in Brazil, so it was something they never had before. Their reaction was amazing. They couldn’t stop telling me how good it was. So now I’m the official smores maker when we go to Brazil.

    • I loved s’mores as a kid. Now I work in a nursing home, and we make them for our residents sometimes. I have a butane smore burner, and little marshmallow prongs, and we make our own, right in our dining room. Sometimes we use the microwave too, but they still seem to enjoy “roasting” their marshmallows over an open flame.

      Peanut butter!  mmm, who doesn’t like Peanut butter with chocolate? :)  Smore will always remind me of family time outside.  

    • My favorite memory is family get-togethers and making smores by the fire. :)

    • My favorite memory of making smores is actually from this year at the end of April 2011 North Alabama was hit with alot of tornadoes. So I traveled to my moms to help clean up on her property.  I was at my moms house with my little sister, my daughter and my older sister’s 2 kids.  we all camped outside built a fire that was burning the debris of trees in there yard and made smores and of course told stories.  the kids loved it!

      Smores always remind me of fall time and being outside around a cozy campfire.

    • I remember standing around a bonfire with a bunch of friends making s’mores and another group of our friends jumped out of the woods and scared us all. I love s’mores. I am having s’mores at my wedding. The gift card would go to good use.

      In door s’mores are a good second to the real thing, make them just like Rice Krispie treats but use Golden Graham cereal and add milk chocolate chips to the marshmellow mix.   Yummy!

      I wanted to see how smores would be on the grill.  Turns out graham crackers CAN burn, and chocolate can be melted even though it looks like it hasn’t.  Once I figured that out, they turned out delicious.  More fun making on a camp fire.  After all, who doesn’t like torching marshmallows? 

    • Anonymous

      S’mores are a must! Not to mention, it was the only time as a kid when adults allow you to play with fire.  We used to use peanut butter to stick chocolate chips onto one graham cracker, for a semi-sweet chocolate and PB twist.  It was also great because my mom wouldn’t buy the milk chocolate bars, but always had a huge bag of Sam’s Club chocolate chips in the pantry. :-)

      Love them with peanut butter….yum!!

    • My favorite memory was when we went camping with a foreign exchange student from Hungry.  He had never made smores or roasted marshmallows.  He took his marshmallow and placed it on the grill grate over the fire.  He looked so puzzled as the marshmallow melted and fell into the fire.  We all had the biggest laugh and then showed him how to roast marshmallows and then make a smore.  :)

    • I loved when it was just me and my kids around the fireplace making smokes.  Good times.

    • Laura Byars

      I loved the way the marshmallow would always stick to my lips and face because I could never open my mouth wide enough to get the whole bite in!  I bet I could open my big mouth wide enough now, though!  : )

      First and last camping trip when I was a kid! (I fell into the ashes of the fire from the night before and burned my hand.)

    • My favorite Smores moment came by surprise. It was right before payday,and I was flat broke, doing that thing where you keep opening and closing the cabinet and fridge hoping something good jumps out. I had half a bag of marshmallows and one packet left of graham crackers. That might have been a decent snack, but then I remembered I had Hersheys Bars in my hurricane supplies.Smores score!
      We toasted the marshmallows over BBQ burner and sat on the stoop trying to close our eyes and imagine we were  camping. It sure tasted that way

    • Courtney G

      My favorite memories of making smores is when I was camping.  Evening time with a fire going singing songs and making smores :-) 
      A fun twist on the traditional smore is to cut up a banana and warm it up on the fire to replace the marshmellow.

    • My favorite Smores memory is from about 3 years ago, my entire family went to the beach and our rental house had a really awesome outdoor fireplace.  We took one look at the fireplace and decided we HAD to make smores that night.  I ran to the only convenience store on the island and bought the overpriced ingredients. That night there was a downpour but we still wanted those smores so we made them in the oven… it was messy and wonderful and the best part was my whole family was there.

    • My fave memory is when me and my family went on vacation to Scotland when I was a child.  We made s’mores out back and my Mom was thoroughly enjoying them.  So much so that they were all over face.  We all laughed and laughed at that for at least 10 mins. Got the picture to prove it:)

    • I had a great time making smores with my husband and kids. It was pretty sad to say my husband had no clue how to make them and my 4 year old had to teach him.

    • Meredith LaBoone

      My favorite smores memory is the birthday party we had for my son and daughter last year.  Instead of a cake, we roasted marshmallows and made smores.  The kids loved it!

    • Tina Pierce

      My husband makes the BEST smores. We are big campers and smores are always a must. We all sit around the fire in our fave camping chairs patiently waiting on daddy to make the perfect marshmallow. He set the graham cracker on a rock with the chocolate on it, near the fire to melt the chocolate just a little. Oh so yummy…now I am craving!!

    • sun going down over Lake Chautauqua, NY on a summer night . . . sitting by the campfire with my family hearing the water slap against the shore . . . uncle playing guitar . . . sharing stories of who caught the biggest fish of the day and  who had the biggest wipeout on the skitube :-) while the yummy smores bake in the fire.  Family times . . . fun times ~ it is my favorite place to be!

      My favorite memory is when my husband and me were counselors at a camp.  We told fun stories around the campfire and helped all the kids make their own smores.  It turned out to be a great night!

    • Shelli Richard

      Last year I made smores for all the kids at our family reunion.  This year I couldn’t do it because of the burn ban.  We did a scavenger hunt instead, which turned out to be just as much fun.

      This is a camping must for my family.  Traditional smores usually, but thin banana slice or different choc. bar is good too.

      My boys love to make smores in the backyard.  The only problem we have is trying not to eat all the Hersey’s chocolate before making the smores.

    • I’m a mom of 10 and my husband and I take our crew every fall to the mountains and tent camp for 3 days.  We always have smores over the campfire each night.  If you can imagine the work it is to prepare several smores a piece for 12 people.  24 sticky hands and all the little ones chocolaty faces are quite a sight!!  It’s always hectic and I wonder why we do this every year because it’s so much work, but it’s one of the funnest memories that we have.  One year we got rained out and had to get a cabin.  We got a fire going in the grill and “grilled” our smores so we didn’t miss out on our tradition!

      Every vacation we have consists of s’mores! So many memories.

    • My favorite memory involving S’mores is making them with my family (even thought my son loves to cook the marshmellows, just not eat them…).   A twist from the traditional recipe is making them with peanut butter cups instead of Hershey’s chocolate.  Thank you!  Sharon

    • I grew up overseas, so my first time making and eating Smores was with my husband! :) Recently we tried the chocolate-vanilla swirl marshmallows on our Smores and they were de-lish!

    • My favorite S’mores memory was during clinicals while in nursing school. We were at a retirement home. Our “challenge” for a test { our instructor liked throwing us curves in real life rather than written } was to fill the courtyard with booths that offered some sort of activity that all the residents at the center could do. I did a S’mores booth. I even got sugar free choc. for a few residents that had severe dietary restrictions. It is amazing how much joy a hibachi and 3 ingredients can bring!

      Not really a special memory but a new way to try S’mores…instead of chocolate bars, try Reese’s peanut butter cups! :)

    • Allison Hartley

      My favorite way to eat smores is in a tortilla.  Prepackaged for camping, there is no mess, either preparing it or eating it.  Yum!

    • My favorite S’mores memory happened on New Year’s Eve. All of my cousins, aunts and uncles were at my grandparents house, and we had built a giant bonfire.  It was too hot for S’mores, so all twelve of us cousins ended up huddling around a little red grill, with the coals from dinner still glowing. It took forever for our marshmallows to roast, but when they did, they were perfect: warm and gooey, with the outside slightly toasted. The best part was spending time with all my cousins.

    • Going to the lake with my grandfather and 8 other cousins for a cookout. The star of the night was of course when he brought out the graham crackers, marshmallows & of course the Hershey candy bars. We would blacken our marshmallows on sticks that each person had to go out and find while the fire got hotter and hotter. We would roast our weiner first and as it got dark and we could here night birds calling out in the woods. Everyone would get real close together for comfort and the fun would start. Never has a dessert been created that could beat a S’mores made with a stick you cut yourself. These three ingredients go together like gravy on potatoes.

      The smore memories that means the most to me and my family has to be during our recent storm in our livingroom. The power was out for about two hours. We use our candles and bamboo skewers to roast our marshmellows. This helped the time pass so quickly. This was a great way to forget our troubles during scary weather. Thanks for letting me share!

    • Just had a memorable S’mores experience yesterday!  We had some friends gathered at a friend’s house for a Sunday afternoon BBQ with S’mores for dessert.  Our friend Manny admitted that it was the first time he had ever had a S’more that wasn’t made in the microwave.  We were all shocked because, of course, the open flame makes all the difference.  What’s a S’more without the flaming ‘mallow?!?!  And for a twist…try a peanut butter cup in lieu of the Hershey’s square.  Delightful!

      Making smores in the microwave in the middle of winter. You don’t get the crunchy marshmallow crust like on a fire, but it’s fun watching them balloon up in the nuker.

      Saturday night we decided to go out back and start a little fire and make some smores. It led to singing campfire songs, and laying on a blanket looking at all of the stars in the clear open sky. I will forever treasure this memory of watching my two girls and their cousin enjoy nature and each others company!! What an easy way to bring families together right in their own backyard!!

      My favorite memory of making s’mores is going on a camping trip with my college friends, sitting on the tail gate of a truck in the woods in front of the fire eating s’mores, straight of the camping fire. Yum! A twist for s’mores I would have is an alternative for when you don’t have a camp fire: roast some strawberry marshmallows in the oven under the broiler, put some nutella on the graham crackers, top with the marshmallows and enjoy.

      My husband actually proposed to me while we were on a camping trip.  I remember sitting next to the fire roasting marshmellows preparing to make us smores and then he popped down on one knee and asked me to be his wife.  I was so excited I dropped my smore onto the ground.  Oh well, I might have lost the smore, but I got the man of my dreams.

    • My favorite memory of making s’mores….. (we are avid camper’s, so there are many!) My favorite was probably when we went to a cabin for Thanksgiving two years ago to Asheville, NC.  We had a cozy house high in the mountains with a huge fireplace between the kitchen and the living room.  We all sat in the living room with our sticks we had found on our hike roasting marshmallows.  Some preferred their’s burnt and some liked their’s a wonderful chocolate brown. We ate s’mores until we were all sick to our stomachs!!  It was well worth it too.

    • A twist on it, use Ritz crackers, and coconut marshmallows, chocolate is optional, but good!

    • My favorite S’mores memory is camping with my family and watching my daughter try them for the first time. I love seeing the kids trying to eat one with the marshmallow squeezing out it. Totally funny!

    • My favorite memories are around the camp fire with my youth group making smores and telling each other how God is working in our lives.

      My kids had never had s’mores until a school picnic recently.  I thought it was going fine but apparently my just turned 3 year old doesn’t understand how close is “too close” to a fire pit.  I was helping my 4 year old with his marshmallow and didn’t see him less than a step away from the edge of the pit.  Some of my coworkers almost had heart attacks though!  Made me think a fire pit isn’t the best way for us to cook s’mores!

      My favorite memory of S’mores involves eating them around a campfire at a Fall Retreat, and then cleaning up the mess and discovering that one of the Hershey wrappers was a “T-shirt Winner”, and winning a long sleeve Hershey’s T-shirt!  YAY!

    • Sometimes we don’t have chocolate so my husband uses chocolate syrup instead with the marshmellows and grahm crackers – the kids still love it – it makes a nice evening snack for them before bed.

    • All my smore’s memories involve Girl Scouts……Smores are the “official” dessert of the Girl Scouts.  I can’t seem to eat one without remembering all my time as a child sitting around a campfire with my fellow scouts waiting for the marshmallow to get cooked enough to plop it between the Hershey bar and the graham cracker.  Aahh, memories!  Now, my three daughters are also involved in scouting, so I can expect to look forward to many more campfires, and many, many, many more smores!!

      My favorite memory was one Christmas my mom gave my 6 siblings and me the same Christmas presents.  We all recieved 1 large square package and 3 large clothing style boxes all wrapped alike.  We were instructed to open them at the same time so we all started with the first box and it was full of Marshmallows (we were wondering if my mom had “lost it”), the second box was full of Hershey’s Chocolate bars (what on earth was she giving us?), the third box had graham crackers (why did she give us the fixings for S’Mores in the dead of winter?) and the final box was an indoor S’Mores maker (it finally made sense!).  We were all able to make S’Mores with our children regardless of the weather outside.  It was such a fun gift and the kids of course loved it.  I can’t think of S’Mores without smiling and thinking of that Christmas!

      We LOVE smores at our house…we even add a little peanut butter for a special twist! :) YUM!

    • My very favorite memory of s’mores comes from last Thanksgiving when we had some family and friends over. It’s a HUGE deal to have family for Thanksgiving, my husband is military and we are always either in a different country, on the other side of the country or my husband is deployed (in fact, my husband and I have been married for almost 9 years and we have only had 2 Thanksgivings together as a family.) We had the fire pit going, the family sitting around and announcing what we were thankful for all while eating s’mores. It was the sweetest moments of our lives (no lie!). My favorite twist on this recipe is to smear some Nutella on the cracker before adding the chocolate bar and roasted marshmallow MMMMM soooo good!!! :o) I am looking forward to this Thanksgiving, because it will be HUGE (the first time ever that my husband will be home for an entire year without a deployment) and the s’mores will be a MUST! :-)

    • When I was a kid, my Dad was the official S’Mores maker. He was the best at it and they always turned out yummy. I remember sitting by the campfire and the chocolate running down my hands and licking it off. He also would make campfire popcorn sometimes and add that to the S’mores. It was extra special then!!

    • Every year for my children’s birthdays I make a homemade cake to go with the party theme. Last fall my son had a camping themed party with his friends. I constructed a cake tower using the graham crackers, marshmallows, and Hershey chocolate squares. I popped some candles in to the marshmallows and wha-la, we had a camp themed birthday cake. Best part was taking it apart one by one, as the kids made smores with it over the fire pit. He wants to do it again in October for his birthday!

Today, my family makes S’mores when the weather is cool & my brother builds a bonfire on my parents’ property, or we just use the microwave at home when we get the craving! The microwave works great when you’re using the toasted coconut marshmallows … love those in S’mores!

      I actually didn’t have my first smore until about three years ago. Chocolate sure, Grahm crackers yep, and roasted marshmellows too but not all put together. We went camping a couple years ago and I decided to bring all of the ingredients for smores my very first one was great. I like it when the marshmellow is a little burnt. Now I make them using my gas burner and a little kabob stick to roast the marshmellow with. It tastes wonderful it’s one of my favorite desserts now.

      we recently did a cookout by our patio outside with a grp of friends that were in town :)

      got myself a nice smore kit ( 36 smores, hersheys bars etc the whole nine yards)

      Funny part of the night was when one of the guys roasted his marshmallow way too much and flung it to put it out only for it to get flung onto another friend of his. Haha, should have seen his face – the both of them. Nothing like a flaming marshmallow flying across the way to get everyone laughing lol.

    • The first time I had S’mores was at a camp-out for GA’s when I was in the 5th grade!

    • I love sitting in the backyard with my family and make some smores with our fire pit. I’t so cozy and yummy.

    • Love S’mores.  We lived in the middle of the woods as kids, so we camped out and made fires and had S’mores.  Good times. 

    • I loved teaching the girls about s’mores when I was a Girl Scout camp counselor! If they were lucky I could bring some caramel squares to add a fun twist! (“Turtle S’mores”)

    • We got a fire pit last fall and we made smores every Saturday night…It brings out the kid in everyone…I bought everyone toasting sticks so we could all make our smores..the neighbors always “drop by” when they smell the fire pit cranking up. I already am drying my firewood for this Fall!

      Every Girl Scout camping trip as a child and now every camper club trip with the kids requires S’Mores….even when it is too hot for a campfire!

    • Elisa Intraboona

      My hubbie and I found an awesome smores recipe. You grind up the graham crackers and add a little sugar and butter. Then layer it in a baking dish (as the crust). Put in the oven to bake at 350 about 10-12 minutes. While waiting, melt the chocolate then pour over the crust once it is removed. Add marshmallows and press into the top of the chocolate. Place in the oven on broil for about 2 minutes. Then put in the fridge to harden. This makes a whole pan of awesome smores without the campfire!

    • I have great memories of grilling smores on the beach with friends as a teen!

    • S’mores are a staple in our house-either by fire or microwave if need be!  Once we have our hot marshmellow, we have one side of the graham cracker waiting with the piece of Hershey bar and the other covered in peanut butter to smoosh it all together!  yum!!!!

      We make smores in the microwave–quick and easy cleanup!

    • Smores were a staple at every childhood get together with family. We had a large family, so as a child these were an almost every weekend type thing. Sitting round the campfire roasting marshmallows for our smores, I can almost taste them now! Just brings back some of the great memories ever of my life. I definitely try to carry this one over into my childrens lifes. But as it is there childhood is sooo different than mine its hard to recreate. We live in town so most of the time its no fire pits allowed :( . But we have gotten creative with it and we pull out the ol grill and collect some twigs off the ground, and in no time at all, instant memories and warm smores.

      I love the summertime recipe for smore’s we made at VBS several years ago.  Mix a container of cool whip with mini marshmallows and mini-chocolate chips (not sure how much of each, but just to taste).  Spread a big spoonful between two graham crackers and freeze.  They are delicious!!!  Sometimes I leave the filling in the cool whip container and just dip the graham crackers in it for a snack.  =)

      S’mores were a childhood favorite for my sisters and myself. We would take them everywhere. I remember a tire blowout on the way to the beach. We had no spare and no cell phones at that time. I’m so glad my Mother packed the S’mores for a snack.

    • I loved making smores with some of my college friends a few years back! Great times!

      I don’t have one memory of S’mores that stands out…but I’ve made many of them over my lifetime!!  Always a fun time around a campfire…

    • In the fall I love making s’mores with my family in the backyard using a fire pit. My husband likes his with a little peanut butter.

      When I was working at WinShape Camps, we had forgotten to bring graham crackers to the camp out!  Our dinners had chocolate chip cookies included, so we just sandwiched the toasted marshmallows between 2 chocolate chip cookies!  Now THAT is the best S’more I’ve ever had!

    • As a child we couldn’t wait for the sun to set while camping so we could start the campfire for those yummy smores. Setting around fighting on who gets the roasting stick first and fighting over who roasted the best marshmallows was alwasy the highlight.  To add a little something special try peanutbutter!!! Yummy Yummy!

    • Me and my family actually just came home a couple weeks ago from a camping trip. One of the best moments of the trip was all of us roasting marshmallows for S’mores right after we roasted hot dogs over the open camp fire. Everybody kept laughing at me because everytime I turned my head, my hand would drop enough without me realizing it and catch the marshmallow on fire. While I love to  eat them like that, I couldn’t ever get get just a lightly roasted marshmallow. It was fun, and hilarious!!! And who would ever think a marshmallow would be so pretty while lit up! :)

      I just saw a recipe on tv where they made the smores (melted in the oven), put them together, stuck a lollipop stick in it and dipped the whole thing in melted chocolate.  Looked delicious!

    • Smores were a staple for our family growing up.  When I was a teenager and in college, I would always invite friends over for a campfire, a bit of crazy campfire songs, a few ghost stories, and hershey chocolate smores.  There is nothing better.

    • My family always used to catch Fireflies together.  Then we would make smores and talk.  I always loved smores!  (And I still do!)

      S’mores made with Reese’s peanut butter cups are insanely delicious!!  Watch out though, they are very addicting!!  : )

    • Smores are great!  Even better with peanut butter!

    • I have such fond memories of my childhood camping trips when my dad helped my sister and I roast marshmallows by the camp fire. But, last year my family made s’mores and it was my 3 year old daughter’s first s’more. It was priceless when she bit into it and smiled with marshmallow and chocolate coming out the sides of her mouth!! I will never forget that!

      Smores is a movie night tradition.  We love going to the drive-in.  We pack up our grill, cooler, blankets and off to the movies we go.  The last time we went to go see Planet of the Apes.  There was a car beside us with 5 kids.  They told their Mom look they are making Smores.  I told my hubby lets make some for them.  It made therie night.  So not only did we enjoy our Smores, we shared with others.

      My husband and I have a tradition with s’mores… on the first night of cold weather, we open up all the windows in the living room and bring out a little pot of sterno and some skewers.  We make our own little campfire on the coffee table and have date night with s’mores.  

    • Try cooking them in the microwave. Put everything but the top cracker on a plate and microwave for about 10 to 15 secs or until the marshmallow starts to puff up and they are ready to enjoy. We cook them like that all the time.

      Sadly enough, I don’t have a S’Mores memory, because I am 50 years old and have never had a s’mores.  I guess I was never a campfire kid.

    • My favorite way to make a smores is to wrap them in foil, put them in a shoe box, and then sit them in the sun. (sometimes we add peanut butter cups! )I usually do this with my class during the warmer months. However this past July we had to have our camp out inside. We made jiffy Pop and it caught on fire! The kids thought it was cool. Then when we heated our smores in the oven my mit hit the burner and made it smoke! Needless to say it was a crazy day. I’ll stick with the sun for heat.

      Instead of just chocolate, do a chocolate peanut butter mix!

    • Beth McDowell

      We had these several times a summer, but my favorite was out of the fireplace on Christmas eve- it was a very special tradition!

    • My husband takes the kids out in the backyard, makes a fire in the grill and lets them roast their marshmallows. They’ve even used sticks to put them on. Sometimes if we don’t feel like doing all that we will make them in the microwave. When I was little we would take saltine crackers, peanut butter and marshmallows and put them together. They were so delicious and I still like them now!

    • We did a lot of camping with my family growing up. My grandparents would always come out and join us for smores night around the campfire.They were such troopers, any time one of us kids would burn a marshmallow they would always eat them saying that was just the way they liked it! You know how you always shake the stick to try and put out the flames of the burning marshmallows? Well my grandmother was paralyzed from the waist down and was in a wheelchair so she wasn’t able to flee from the flying burnt marshmallows. My grandfather would always laugh and tell us later about the marshmallows he had to get out of her hair and her wheelchair tires! Every time I eat a smore, I always think fondly of them!

      Camping.  Sitting around the warm fire, listening to the wood pop and the crickets, and eating smores – great memories.

      My best memory of making SMORES is this past summer as myself and my family went on our 1st camping trip together.  My 2 1/2 year old could not get enough SMORES, probably because most of it ended up on her face instead of in her mouth. 

      I suggest adding a little bit of p-nut butter to the graham cracker before adding the melted marshmellow and chocolate.  Adds a nice little twist!

    • We make smores with our broiler when the weather is bad outside. So easy and just as warm and gooey!

    • Every time my husband came home from a deployment, we went on a camping trip.  Nothing felt better than sitting next to him and the campfire with a s’more in my hand.  I knew that if I was camping, my husband was safe.  S’mores are very sentimental to me and my husband.

    •  My favorite smores memory is sharing smores with my Bunko group.

      Some of our fondest memories include sitting around our fire pit with our small group from church (Group Ate), roasting marshmallows and making s’mores. One night someone wondered aloud how it would taste to add peanut butter to a s’more. We tried it … YUM!

    • We like to use the cinnnamon graham crackers to make our s’mores. =) Hope we can win a kit! =)

    • Smores at girl scout camp!   We would put them together in a foil packet near the fire to really melt the chocolate. Yummy

      Introducing my son, who was 15 months old at the time, to his first experience with a S’more. He always loved eating marshmellows whenever I had them and gave him one, and the same for chocolate.  At first he had a puzzled look on his face, when we showed the gooey warm S’mores to him.  He turned away as though he didnt want it, but not more than a second later, he turned back towards us with a huge grin and took a big bite. He chewed with the usual content look that one gets while enjoying a S’more, messy face and all! Since that day they have been has favorite treat, even if we make them indoors in the microwave.

      A funny smores memory was this year camping at the beach for my birthday.  We were sitting around the campfire and a bandit faced racoon busted out of the marsh scrub.  It was obvious he was not going to back down and had his sights set on our marshmallows and chocolate.  We retreated to the car for fear of rabies and watched him drag our bag of marshmallows into the night. 

    • First of all, I think it’s really awesome that you share these giveaways with us when you probably could find a way to keep them all yourself. It just goes to show what kind of person you are!
      My favorite smore night was at a family get together with long time family friends. We had a campfire smore roaster that did 3 smores at a time. We’d roast the marshmallow to perfection, make the smore sandwich and put it over the fire just long enough to melt the chocolate. YUUUUUUUUUUUMMM! :-)

    • err…the classic s’more recipe is pretty much perfect but you can always tweak it a little; like say adding sliced bananas in between the layers or using miniature peanut butter cups instead of the chocolate bar…or you could go even further and substitute the chocolate for some thin-sliced apples with a little caramel drizzle…

      Also – a fun way of making s’mores:  At camp one summer, we didn’t have a campfire to roast marshmallows over, so our counselor showed us how to make s’mores with a handy, dandy blow dryer!  Fun times are always had with a s’mores in hand!

      I don’t remember having s’mores too often as a kid, but I sure have made a lot of memories with my own children making s’mores around the campfire.

    • my fun memory is being 8 months pg, “sleeping” outside on the trampoline with my 7,10 and 12 yr old kids and toasting miniature marshmallows for smores over a candle…even if the marshmallows turned a little apple scented, and the cat snuggled up to me in thing night, and the baby-to-be-born jumped in me all night…well, isn’t that enough for memories?!!!

      One of the few memories I have of my grandfather was him letting us make s’mores in his backyard fire pit, as a five year old I was so excited about mine that I proudly turned around with mine on my stick and iy got stuck to the poor man’s leg! It singed all the hair off his leg and he had to jump into the pool to stop the burning!

    • My favorite smores’ memory is from a youth trip in which we camped outside. Myself and a couple other girls stayed up later than everyone else around the campfire eating smores. This one girl must have had this one single marshmallow on a stick at the fire for an hour. Smacking it on the burning, ashy wood, catching it on fire and putting it out several times….but when last call came (we were running out of chocolate) you better believe she slapped that baby on a honey maid and smooshed it with some Hershey’s!

    • Traci Hammett

      my favorite memory is me and my best friend in introducing her daughter and her best friend to s’mores.  the girls loved them and we all had a blast making them together

    • Favorite memory:  When I was about 10, we had a loc- in at my church for girls only and we were going to make s’mores by the camp fire.  Unfortunately it rained so our leader made them in the microwave.  I remember crowding around the microwave with 8 other giggling girls at 1:30 in the morning as Ms. Kay made them one at a time.  I used that same back up plan years later when I was on an overnight camping trip with 29 of my 5th grade students who were completely devastated that it was raining and we couldn’t make s’mores.  Luckily the camp cabin came equipped with a microwave and I had patient parent volunteers who made countless batches of s’mores for my students!

      Recipe:  I don’t know the exact recipe, but someone brought a plate of s’mores brownies to our school last week.  From what I could tell it was graham cracker crumbs on the bottom, brownie in the middle, and marshmallows that had been toasted on the top.  DELICIOUS!

      My favorite S’mores memory was a first date from college.  I was cooking dinner on a first date and wanted to make S’mores for dessert.  We didn’t have a place to make a fire so I got the bright idea to “roast” marshmallows on the stove top.  After a couple of minutes the first marshmallow was brown on all sides and ready to meet the chocolate and graham cracker.  Not realizing the stove was now warmer, I held the second marshmallow over the burner and as I was smiling at my date and trying to make a good impression I dropped the marshmallow which immediately hit the burner and caused a small flame.  I put the fire out with a dish towel while my date watched me beat the stove top.  This occurred directly after I told my date I loved to cook and my parents had previously owned a restaurant.  You’ll be shocked to know there actually was a second date – at a restaurant.

      My family and I lived overseas for almost 8 years, where marshmallows were almost impossible to buy and real Hershey’s chocolate had to be carried over from the States.  Graham crackers were very hard to find, also!  But one happy day I managed to get all three ingredients together and introduced my girls (ages 6.5, 5, and 3) to the delight of S’mores.  We didn’t have a real fire, but had the next best thing…a gas stove!  We toasted the marshmallows to a perfect golden brown, put it all together, enjoyed every sweet and sticky bite, and then of course, asked for S’more!

    • sorry no campfire memories with these
      but we did do graham crackers with peanut butter and marshmallows heated in the oven which was good

      I have many memories of making s’mores because I was a Cub Scout leader for many years.  I think my absolute favorite is the first campout my boys had as Boy Scouts. It was a huge event with Boy Scout troops from all over central Florida.  Each troop did a skit or song.  After all the fun, we made s’mores around the fires.  They never tasted so good.  JIL

      Here is a fun twist to the traditional recipe.  Take a banana and peel one side down, but do not remove peel.  Scoop out part of the banana so the banana looks like a canoe.  Add the hersheys chocolate in the center of the carved out banana.  Add marshmallows on top of the chocolate.  Lastly, secure the peel back to the side of the banana.  Either wrap with tinfoil and put on campfire or stick on top of grill for a few minutes until the chocolate and marshmallows melt.  Can be placed in microwave without the tinfoil  for 30 seconds.  Delicious!

      My favorite S’more twist recipe:

      S’more Cups 
      (The Pampered Chef 2011 Recipe Calendar – October)

      7 whole graham crackers, crushed

      ¼ cup powdered sugar

      6 Tbsp butter, melted

      4 bars milk chocolate candy

      12 large marshmallows

      1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, and butter in Small Batter Bowl. Using Small Scoop, place scant scoop of crumb mixture in each cup of Deluxe Mini-Muffin Pan. Press crumbs to form shallow cups with Mini-Tart Shaper. Bake 4-5 minutes or until edges are bubbling. Meanwhile, break two of the candy bars into rectangles. Remove pan from oven; place one rectangle into each cup.
      2. Cut marshmallows in half crosswise using Professional Shears dipped in cold water. Place one marshmallow half in each cup. Return to oven 1-2 minutes or until marshmallows are slightly softened. Remove to Stackable Cooling Rack; cool 15 minutes. Carefully remove cups from pan. Cool completely.
      3. Break remaining candy bars and place in Prep Bowl. Microwave for 1-1 1/2 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring every 20 seconds. Dip the top of each marshmallow in melted chocolate. Let stand 40-60 minutes.

      We make smores with marshmellow cream when we cant have a campfire.  The we set up a tent in the living room and “camp out”!

    • I loved our neighborhood bonfire after Christmas.  We’d haul our old Christmas trees to the park, start a bonfire and burn the trees.  We’d have little fires going where we could roast marshmallows and make s’mores.  It was awesome!

      Growing up, my family lived on a dead end dirt road. Right before school started in the fall, the next door neighbor invited all the kids to her backyard for S’mores.  We made S’mores, played games and had a great time.

      My 6 yr. old just asked tonight if I could please buy some marshmallows and fixings so we could have some smores. I love how everyone likes their marshmallow a certain way: barely warm, light brown, or totally burned.

    • My favorite S’mores memory is from a few weeks ago. I was making them in the oven and I used Pam on the pan! DUMB IDEA!!! The broiler got so hot that it caught the Pam on fire and it exploded and the marshmellow caught on fire and would not go out…while trying to put out the fire in the oven I caught a bunch of other stuff (like towels and such) on fire in the kitchen…as I am about to totally freak out my 4 year old walks in the room and says “Mommy, I smell fire…I think I need to call the fire department.”…he was so calm and I was the one freaking out! I ended up using the faucet sprayer from the sink to extinguish everything.

    • Peanut butter is an awesome addition to the traditional s’more.  Another great idea is to eat them cold…  We made them (in the oven) for a late-night snack at camp.  The adults didn’t get to partake until after lights out – and they were extra chewy and delicious!

       We live in Georgia where it is obviously very warm, but the first evening in early fall when it is actually “cool” enough to be warmed by a fire, we get the fire pit going in the back yard and make s’mores! Last year, my husband and I, our three daughters, and my parents sat around the fire licking the marshmallows off our fingers and enjoy simply being together!

I have never had marshmellows before then. He has since past but I will never forget my first s’mores with the best man in the world.

      Thinking about S’mores reminds me of the church camp I attended every summer from ages 6 to 16. At every week of camp there was one special night, usually the middle of the week, that we would make S’mores. Usually we would have an awesome night worship service, followed by a hayride and S’mores. Fond memories.

      My favorite S’mores memories are of roasting marshmallows over a giant campfire with all my high school friends from church, then putting that ooey, gooey marshmallow between two graham crackers and a giant chunk of Hersey’s chocolate.  I could never eat one without getting in all over me!

    • Please don’t laugh — but I’ve never had a smores treat…and I’m 40 yrs old.


    • We love s’mores (understatement) and even when we aren’t camping, we’ll fire up the grill, grab the skewers and make them in the back yard under the stars.  What’s amazing is how the magic of roasting marshmallows and making s’mores never lessens, even when the sum of outoor adventure is lying on the trampoline, eating our gooey treats, and searching the skies for constellations.

    • I have very fond memories of making S’mores at girl scout camp every year growing up. Everytime I see a camp fire it reminds me of how it isn’t complete without S’mores.

    • My twins had a camping themed sleep-over for their birthday which was in January. So, we set up the big tent in the living room, made a campfire cake found here: http://www.mypapercrane.com/blog/?p=767 and made indoor s’mores recipe here: http://www.hersheys.com/recipes/4346/Indoor-or-Outdoor-S'Mores.aspx. We ended the night with a game of flashlight hide-and-go seek through the house! Lots of fun memories!

    • We regularly have fires behind our house on our 8.5 acres. Nothing spells fall like a nice hot campfire and S-M-O-R-E-S!!

    • Who knew that such a simple treat would lift up our hearts and enjoy every minute that life has to offer, but S’mores have allowed me to savor every moment with the onces I love.  Before my roomate was deployed to Iraq, it was a challenging time for all of us. We studied, cooked, and did everything together including eating S’mores every thursday night which was movie night in our apartment. So during his last weekend in the States before being deployed, we all went to the beach and made S’more over a roasting fire under the stars with all of our friends. As we had our S’mores I learned a very valuable lesson: Life is meant to be lived with family and friends making memories and taking pleasure in the little things in life like walking barefoot on the beach, feeling warmth, hearing a child’s laughter, feeling emotions.  Those S’mores were the most delicious S’mores I have ever had because I shared them with my friend! S’mores: Enjoy the little things in Life!

      we made smores last weekend in our backyard. we dont have much of a backyard, so we build a square out of wood and added gravel in it. then we put a metal bucket in the middle and made a small fire. this was my 2 yr olds first time making smores. we had soooooo much fun. he talked about that all week ;-)

    • In 2004 we had several hurricanes, and after three days with out power our entire street helped each other out with clean up and decided we should cook all our freezer food together before it went bad and have a street pot luck.  Every one just went house to house and filled up their plates from grill to grill.  Most of these neighbors we had never met before, but am still friends with.  When we ran out of propane we made smores with grill lighters.

    • I know this may be boring BUT the best time to have smores is around a campfire outside during the fall time. Love my marshmellow a little burned! :)

      My favorite memory of smores would have to be when me, my husband, sister and niece went camping. My sister at the time was 13 and my niece was 10 and they both acted like 2 yr olds all day long because there wasnt anything for them to do”or so they thought” at the campsite. Anyway that night my husband made smores and all of a sudden it went from we are bored we wanna go home to wow this is so fun and these tatse so good. Thank goodness for smores!

      Hershey’s won’t like this, but I think the best way to eat a roasted marshmallow is between 2 Keebler fudge stripes cookies!! The chocolate is so thin that it melts right away and the taste is amazing!! When I’ve been desperate, I’ve made them in the microwave. :-)

      A few weeks ago I was out of Hershey’s chocolate and had to substitute Godiva chocolate.  My 5 year old son called it the best day of his life.  I’m not sure if it was because of the chocolate or because it let him burn his marshmallows in the fire and then blow them out.

      My favorite S’mores memory centers around my son’s birthday. We always planned our family ski vacation around his birthday.  His birthday “cake” request was always S’mores.  I had to get creative to use candles on S’mores, but we actually made it work. We would come back to the condo after a day on the slopes and using the microwave oven we “made” his birthday S’mores.  So, for me, instead of the traditional camping, S’mores bring back precious birthday memories with my son.  

    • We love making smores around here!  Especially in the Fall when the air gets a little chill in it.  We all gather around our chiminea and roast marshmallows to make our smores sandwiches.  The kids love it too. I love seeing their gooey marshmallow smiles:)

    • Last year we were making smores by the campfire with extended family.  Between eating the oozing gooey treats a few cousins held a competition, who could fit the most marshmallows in their mouth.  Hilarious!

      My family loves to camp and when I say family, I mean our immediate family as well as grandparents, uncles, aunts, and cousins.  We always have a fire and make smores and one night we couldn’t locate the marshmellows or the chocolate and we found our nephews up at the playground with an empty marshmellow bag and chocolate all over their faces and hands.  They had eaten them in the dark and didn’t realize that they had gotten it all over themselves!  When we walked back down to camp and everyone saw them, what a laugh we had.  After I pulled out a mirror, they finally admitted it.  We went to another camper and got more goodies and made smores, but by then they weres sick from eating so much earlier!!

      One night when my husband was working and my kids were sleeping, I was so desperate for a s’more that I broke out the meat fork, stuck on a marshmallow, and sat next to the stove. I prayed that the kids wouldn’t wake up & my husband wouldn’t walk in the door. I’m sure I looked quite silly sitting there in my robe waiting for my marshmallow to be browned just the way I like it.

      The first time I remember having smores was in GA camp as a kid.  I remember thinking they were wonderful, so when I came home I tried to recreate them.  Not as successful then, but I’ve had many more smore-making memories since!

    • My favorite memory of having smores was when I was a brownie scout. We’d go on overnight  camping trips every summer. At night each group would sit in a circle around the campfire with our coat hangers and roast our marsh mellows then put together our smores.   That was 50 years ago but I can still almost taste the hot marshmellow and gooey chocolate! That was my favorite part of the camp out! I now make smores with my grandchildren.

      I have established our own little family tradition…for the past 4 years my family (me husband and children age 5 &7) have gone camping for my birthday in October.  We all look forward to it and work together to pick the perfect location.  Instead of birthday cake we celebrate over the campfire making smores.  What a great birthday present it would be to win this!

    • We have s’mores outside in our backyard over our fire pit.  My favorite memory is when my five year old was trying to eat a marshmallow by itself after she had a s’more already, and it plopped onto her face between her eyes.  Luckily it wasn’t hot still, but the goo was everywhere and we couldn’t stop laughing.

    • My favorite memories are with my kids. We Have S’mores in our backyard over the fire pit. We all sit around the pit eating our S’mores and take turns telling ghost stories. (My kids are 5&6 so they’re really not that scary), But one of those nights I told the story about the kid in the closet of the hotel saying  “I got ya! I see ya! Now I’m gunna eat ya!” When the kids figured out the little boy was eating his boogers they cracked up. For the next week or two they would go around saying that.

    • I never had a s’more as a child.  In my house, we made this bizarre little snack.  I think it originated with my mom’s dad, but I have no idea really.  It’s like a s’more on crack.  Saltine cracker, thin slice of cheddar cheese, marshmallow on top – toasted under the broiler.  Yes, I know.  It sounds insane.  It’s actually quite good – or maybe it’s just that I was brought up to think it is!

      We toast marshmallows in the fireplace every winter.  You have to catch the marshmallow on fire to make it just right !

    • We have a fire ring in the backyard and do smores all fall and winter long. If holding a stick just doesn’t do it for you then I have an alternative.
      Take a banana and lie it on it’s side, peel the top peel off but let it stay attached to the end. Slicing the banana into quarter inch slices, remove every other slice and put them aside. Take the chocolate pieces and break them in half and tear your marshmellos in half, place one piece in each missing slice alternating between chocolate and marshmellows. Take your graham cracker and crumble it on top. Place the peel back over the banana and wrap the entire banana in foil. Set in the coals for 5-8 minutes. Eat the banana slices while you wait. Remove from fire, open foil, peel back the banana peel and eat with a spoon. Fabulous!

      Making Smores is the first thing my Cub Scouts ask to do whenever we go camping.  They eat them until their stomachs hurt.  I love to make them with Hershey’s special dark chocolate.  That makes them healthy.,…right?!

    • my favorite s’mores memory is from a summer mission trip in college. one of our last nights all together we headed to a park with guitars and s’mores supplies, ate way too many s’mores and sang praise to God. a sweet time.

      We love banana sundae s’mores – cut a v from a banana, add mini marshmallows and mini chocolate bits, put the top back on and wrap in heavy duty foil and place at the edge of the campfire.  Once it’s hot, you can use your graham cracker as a scoop to eat all the hot, sweet sundae out of the banana boat.

      We made smores every single weekend I was growing up as we went camping every single weekend (when I grew up living in Michigan). Now, when I take my children to visit their grandparents (who still live in MI)–we make smores.  It is a great memory and I love making even more great memories.  

      As a twist we add peanut butter to the graham crackers for a great peanut butter-marshmallow-chocolate rendition.  

    • Every year, for the 4th of July, we have all our friends and family come to our house for a night time pool party.  We have a cook out, and a bonfire…. with our favorite…smores, of course!!  When I think of smores I think of special times with the people I love.

      Both of my children have bdays in the winter, so pool parties are out…but campfires are IN! For my son’s 8th bday, we invited his friends to Camp Nikolas. It was so much fun. After running around all day, the kids were SO excited when we started the campfire. First the hot dogs, then the good stuff…the s’mores. The kids loved them, but eventually lost the patience to wait. So, us moms took advantage of the time to sit by the fire and talk, while making s’mores for whatever kid ran by and snatched them. Good times!

    • I add crushed peppermint to my smores.  It gives it a lil more crunch and gives a kick to your tastebuds.  My 2 brothers and I are all grown adults, but when we meet back at our parents for dinner, we are never too big to get in the kitchen and make smores. :)

    • My family always goes camping over the Thanksgiving holiday and of course, s’mores are a camping tradition!

      We had a get together with the young people from our church and we had a bonfire. We thought we would try to assemble all the chocolate and marshmallows on a cookie sheet and try to get them to melt that way. Smores without the work? Not so much, but it was funny! 

    • My kids have s’mores at least once a week.  We use a big candle to make the s’mores and the kids love it.  It is a real treat  after dinner and the kids look so forward to it!  I use it as a reward for them!!

    • I used to love catching my mallows on fire then waiting until they are burnt to a crisp to blow them out! Then I would eat the outside layer and put the gooey inside into my s’more. I think I really did it just to gross my cousins out, but I enjoyed every minute of it!

    • When you add sliced bananas to the mix it takes the smores to the next level :)

      I went on a few camping trips as a kid but we didn’t really do the smore thing. Wish we had. I do them now, more in the winter actually and I roast the marshmallow over a candle. I know a little wierd sounding but it works!

    • We always ate those for Girl Scouts and camping trips.  Dark chocolate or Nutella are good swaps for the traditional chocolate.

    • S’mores always remind me of camping, and since I love camping, so it’s always a good memory! My husband loves to buy bananas when we buy the stuff to make s’mores and he cuts up the bananas and puts chocolate and marshmallows in them and cooks it over the stove and everyone seems to love them too.

This summer we took the kids camping and of course smores were on the menu.  My MIL stayed at our house to look after the house and animals, and when we got back the girls were telling her about smores. SHE HAD NEVER HAD ONE! So hubby went out in the back yard and started a fire in the grill so she could try them.  She’s hooked!

      My favorite smore memory happened only a few years ago…we had an exchange student with us (about 16 yrs old) from China.

Unfortunately, she ate too many and got sick.

      My Husband and kids just recently bought me a fire pit I have been wanting FOREVER. A friend and her family come over every other week and we make smores. I think my favorite way to make smores is….strawberry marshmellows, chocolate graham crackers and Hersheys Chocolate. It is just like a chocolate covered strawberry.

    • My Grandmother and I would go to the beach together every year for summer when I was a child. She always made the best ham and cheese sandwiches for after swimming.

But at night while watching Johnny Carson we would always have S’mores made with Hershey’s chocolate.She used to say everyone needs a little sweetness in life.

    • Weekdays can become long and stressful specifically for a 5th grade teacher. To ease the tension and add some family time to my life, my extended family gets together every Sunday evening. We sit out on the deck, watch and laugh while the “non-Eagle Scout” tries to light the fire in the fire pit and the kids run around chasing one another with fallen tree branches pretending they are on fire saying “Quick run from the fire before it gets you, get on the trampoline” (I assume coming from the times the marshmallows inevitably start on fire). We then pull out the S’ more items and begin to build the highlight of the night (or at least for my mouth!). The kids make us laugh as the marshmallows smoosh out of the graham crackers and all over their adorable faces! To me, s’mores mean family time and lots of laughs!

      The best s’more is created using graham crackers for the exterior, a gooey brownie (betty crocker brownie mix with 1/2 bag marshmallows cooked and cooled) acting as the chocolate, and yummy roasted marshmallows for the sake of tradition!

They all found it pretty hilarious when my hubby told them how his older brother used to trick him by saying how delicious it was to smother your marshmallow in ashes before you eat it. He would do it, because he thought his brother was so cool! The kids all got a good laugh. Those are the best times…pure joy with my boys & no distractions!

      Every memory of S’mores is a favorite memory and there are several. They’re always best over a small bonfire under a starry night with loved ones who don’t mind your chocolatey mellow-mustache. : )

      We just went camping a few weeks ago. You know you’re S’mores crazy when you build a roaring fire in the middle of a heat wave!  Our favorite memory takes place with those left over marshmallows that just happen to fall strategically in the firepit.  Those sweet, innocent little marshmallows take on new life as they grow and grow and grow into amazing works of art.  We’re still laughing!

    • I use to go camping when with my parents and that was the highlight of the trip was making s’mores

    • You should put the roasted marshmallow between a Little Debbie Nutty Bar.  It’s delicious. 

    • I love making smores every Sunday evenight with my kids!  It has become a family tradition this summer!

      This was the first summer for my husband & I to join my family reunion with our children. We have a ton of fun traditions during the reunion … (did I mention the reunion is 40 people crammed into this big cabin for three days?) Our children, age 2 & 1 LOVED every minute of the fun, but the especially loved our Friday night SMORES night around the campfire. They found a new favorite treat (:

      Fun Twist to the traditional recipe

      Hershery’s bars
      Fluff marshmallow
      Sea salt

      Take and halve the croissants and spread marshmallow fluff on both insides and place hershey bar pieces in the middle and sprinkle a lil bit of sea salt. The salt accentuates the sweetness of the chocolate.

      Fire up the grill and place the croissants on the side of the flame not directly on it, until the chocolate has melted and the croissant is toasted.


      This is great for anyone that lives in a neighbor/ subdivision that won’t let you have a fire in your back yard, and still enjoy a s’more =) We loved it!

    • My favorite smore memory is one of my friends birthday’s this past year. She decided she wanted to do a campfire, and I remember all the kids eating their s’mores and all the fun we had just hanging out.

      At my in-laws, making S’mores with my 1st child, pregnant with my 2nd. My five year old is sticky from head to toe and my father in law had the bright idea to give her a dry paper towel to remove the marshmallows. Then she was not only covered in marshmallows, but also in paper towel bits!

      A few weeks ago my family and I traveled to our favorite camping spot of all times! We were greeted with an unfriendly sign at the campsite rental booth that there was a burn ban in effect.  ( Turner Falls, OK)  We all took a deep breath and continued our family trip sans the campfire:( While we still had fun being together and enjoying the sights and sounds of nature around us, we ALL felt like something was missing.  We traveled home and thought we were all pleased with the vacation spent…We collectively decided that no trip could be considered complete without fire roasted Smores!!! So after our hour and a half drive home,  we gathered up all our remaining firewood from last winter, went outside to the outdoor fireplace, and stoked up a blazing inferno… (controlled of course;)  My daughters unpacked all of our Smores “supplies” and began the ritual that always seemed to bring us together no matter what our differences. All the trivial “teenage” things seemed to disappear with the melting of the marshmallows,  and the delicate Hershey’s chocolate squishing between the crispy graham cracker shells.  We sat and talked for hours about anything and everything!  So, to all my neighbors who stepped outside on that August night and wondered who in their right minds would be burning an outdoor fireplace in a drought and record setting heat indexes.  That would be US:) We needed it!

      While roasting smores with my children, my best friend, and her son, we realized we didn’t have enough hershey bars to make smores for ourselves, just the kids.  :(  So we roasted them over the fire pit, and the kids enjoyed them very much!  Saddened by this :)  I went scouring through her refrigerator,,,,only to find peanut butter fudge her Mama had brought her during her last visit.  A lightbulb went off!!!!!!  So we told the kids to go play, and we roasted chocolate fudge and marshmallow smores (for ourselves, and didn’t share with the kiddos :)  Best smores I ever had!  We cherish that memory together, since her husband was recently given orders by the Navy, and they have moved ten hours away :(  Nothing makes better memories than SMORES!

      My favorite S’mores memory was as a child at my late grandparents house.  They used to buy the makings and let me sit by a small heater and heat the marshmellow up to a melting point and squish it in the graham crackers.  We didn’t have a lot of money, but we sure did have a great time spending time with one another.

I love warming the chocolate too by placing a graham cracker with chocolate on a rock at the edge of the fire to warm while I toast my marshmallows -2 – slowly so they are all melty and gooey inside and then I char the outside with a nice burn.  With the two marshmallows and a little melty chocolate, mmm.  My kids love them now too! I don’t mind the sticky goodness mess!

      My favorite memory involving smores was last year one fall weekend. My sister came up for the weekend from out of town and we had friends over. It was super chilly outside, but we all wanted to hang out and didnt want the night to end so we took a cheap 3 dollar portable “grill” outside to the middle of my apartment parking lot, set up every lawn chair i had around it (including the reclining kind you use for tanning LOL) set that puppy on fire, found some graham crackers, marshmallows and uses M&M’s because we couldnt find chocolate. The longer we sat out there, the more people from the apartment complex came out and joined. we wound up with a crowd of like 60+ at 12am in the morning!! It was AWESOME to spend the time with my friends and family, and also my “other” family that lived around me…People still talk about our “EPIC” smores night to this day!! All with a little 3 dollar portable grill :)

      Many, many campfires as a kid letting my marshmallow go up in flames before I would smoosh it between the chocolate and graham crackers!  yummm….

      My children absolutely adore smores.  Anytime we have a bonfire, we have to make a run to the store for smore’s supplies!  I love a traditional smore with the graham crackers, Hersheys Milk Chocolate Bar and the perfectly ooey-gooey golden brown marshmallow.  For a special treat, I will use the Hersheys Cookies & Cream bar instead of the milk chocolate…..so creamy and divine!!

      when I taught childcare, we had a camping theme for the week. I decorated the room in sheets from the ceiling to the floor to make it look like a tent. we used flash lights on that Friday instead of regular lights, we sang songs and made smores. I had to use the microwave instead of an indoor campfire and the marshmallows got huge, but made really yummy smores. It was by far the kids favorite week!

      My side of the family always takes a late spring mini vacation usually to a state park and we always get cabins so we can stay together.  Love it.  My son had turned 3 in Feb. and he loved fireman stuff.  So we broke out the smore makings one evening and the bug spray and had a wonderful fire going.  My son was asking us all kinds of questions about the fire and how it melts the marshmallow and he kind of got scared when we let his marshmallow catch fire….when we finally got it assembled and he took his first bite…he was hooked and had it from head to toe–the ooey gooey goodness of a smore with his fire hat on!! a picture perfect moment :)

      S’Mores are a staple in our family for spring AND fall campfires.  The best addition. . . .add a little peanut butter!  The warm marshmallow makes the peanut butter a little gooey and it is the perfect combination!

      My favorite S’More’s memory is taking our three boys camping on top of Monte Sano Mountain on a cool fall weekend. After my Webelo cub, Jordan, built a fantastic crackling fire, we all sat around with the marshmallows hovering over the fire getting perfectly toasted. My youngest son who was 4 at the time made me, his mommy, several marshmallows and learned to burn them just like she likes. Of course the chocolate melted when the marshmallow was smashed between the graham crackers. It was ooey gooey delish!

      Some of my fondest childhood memories involve S’mores. If we were having a bonfire, camping, or just grilling, you could bet that there were S’mores. Now that I’m a mom of three I’ve carried on the tradition of having S’mores with my family. To me they just bring  everyone together in the process of making them. Everyone gets a turn. Another way that I make them sometimes is in the microwave. Its fast and a nice treat for the kids and me. I haven’t experimented to much with changing the recipe but I will say that I have used Hershey’s Almond bars and it is awesome!

      Yummy!  Love S’mores!  One of my fav memories is getting everything together and having the fire rained out but making them anyway.  We broke some of the graham crackers into a baking dish and then topped with broken choc bars, the marshmallows and more broken grahams.  Popped them in the oven for a bit.  Once they cooled, we broke up into chunks and devoured them.  Wonderful! and satisfied the craving too.

One of my aunts owned an RV with a microwave so when my brother, cousin, and I got bored of making s’mores over the campfire we decided to see if we could speed the roasting process by microwaving the marshmallow. Needless to say our marshmallows grew about 300 times in size and exploded in the microwave. Yea, we spent the rest of the evening cleaning up the microwave mess.

      I had smores for the first time when I was 33 years old.  Someone suggested we make them for my students (Kindergarten) as a class project.  I had never thought smores looked very good so I wasn’t excited about the project. 
      Well, I tried them and almost fell over.  It was love at first bite.  I ate so many smores that day. I even went home and made some.  I absolutely LOVE them now.

    • Bethlong360

      Favorite memory was an extended family vacation everyone was sitting by the fire roasting marshmallows to make s’mores. My Aunt caught her marshmallow on fire, stood up swinging it in the air to put the fire out.  The flaming marshmallow flew through the air, over the fire, and landed right on my thigh (while still on fire).  I had a scar for the longest time. 

    • Hannah Hussain

      When my husband and I worked at a summer camp during college, he designed a special class with a friend where they taught campers how to make THE perfect s’more. As an Eagle Scout and camping enthusiast, he had plenty of s’more making experience. They made s’mores with mini marshmallows, different candy bars, peanut butter, different flavors of graham crackers, and bananas! The campers were so excited about the class and continued to talk about it for several summers afterward.

      I like to use the marshmallow “fluff” instead of the individual marshmallows….mmmm….gooey!!! :)

    • Norma

      Our family loves to add peanut butter to our smores!  And for a little bit more healthy smore, we use marshmallow cream, nutella and the graham crackers.  It is yummy as well!

      I think my favorite memory of making and eating s’mores is the first time. I was around 9 years old and my aunt gathered all the grandchildren to clean up fallen limbs in my Grandparents yard. To reward us for our work she showed us how to make s’mores!

    • Penrose33

      This past fourth of July, we had two couples (long-time friends), and their kids over for a cookout and swimming party. We made s’mores for dessert, and we got great pictures of all the kids with their faces smeared with chocolate and marshmallows. Love it!

    • I have never had a smore.

      We add caramel to ours!  Stack teh graham cracker, then use the hershey’s caramel syrup, then the chocolate bar, marshmello, more caramel, and the graham cracker.  Its SOOO delicious!  I remember being five and making these in my grandparents back yard with them.  I love s’mores! 

    • Marinewife8863

      I love roasting marshmallows but I don’t like eating them. Every July when our family has our annual get together I sit by the fire and roast marshmallows all night so that the kids can make smores! Love seeing the kids messy faces afterwards!

      I loved fixing them with my Mom for my daughter for the first time. She was three and we roasted the marshmallows in the fireplace and made the smores. She was gooey mess, but she loved every minute of it, and so did we!

      My favorite memories of eating S’mores are with my children… Ava my 3 1/2 year old loves to “go camping”.  Although I love camping, I have to admit It’s not as easy as it use to be now with 2 children.  My husband & I (before kids) use to pack up our camping gear last minute on a Friday after work and head to the mountains for an overnight camping adventure.  Now It takes me half the day just to pack up for a one night stay not to mention getting there and getting the tent set up and collecting wood, all without losing the kids! ha! So… Ava going camping means having a little camp fire in our back yard in our fire pit and making S’mores.  The funny thing is she loves to make the S’more but just eat the marshmallow out of it.  Fine with me, because you know you gets to eat the chocolate & graham cracker… me! We make a big deal out of picking out the right stick and widdling it just sharp enough to smoothly slide a marshmallow on it.  So around our house when I hear our 3 year old say, “mom, can we go camping?” That means, “mom, can we make S’mores?”  I love it! 

    • Ana Maria S.

      I loved making them at my inlaws house out on the back patio around the fire pit…yum

    • Lstewart002

      My brother and sisters used to love making smores around the campfire.   Sometimes it was a special occasion but most of the time it was just to eat the smores!    As adults, we still try to do this as often as we can with our own children and grandchildren.

    • I remember when my son was 1 years old and we made smores by the camp fire during his first family reunion…….he called them MORE MORES…….now we make them at every family reunion

    • Jeannagripper

      My dad helping me to roast the marshmallow- meaning, helping me to not drop it in the dirt on my way to my mouth!  

    • Cherylbarnett

      discovered when a camping trip got rained out that smores are just as good when you use the microwave!

    • We always made S’mores as Girl Scouts when my sister and I were growing up in Oak Ridge, TN. We would take our trusty pocket knives and cut green twigs to roast the marshmallows over the fire that was a badge requirement.  I loved the melted marshmallows and not so much the chocolate.  Have not eaten a s’more in now over 40 years, but they sure were tasty back when.

    • Tammy Guthrie

      We like making s’mores with hershey’s choc., peanut-butter-smeared choc. graham cracker, and a jumbo roasted marshmallow.  Absolute heaven!

    • Kunicht

      Cinnamon Smores… Yumm

    • Tara

      Addd some peanut butter to the graham crackers for a creamy chocolatey taste

    • Lorih

      Love them all year by making in the microwave.

    • Shellpadgett

      Of course, I think of camping when I think of Smores.  But one variation you can do if you can’t get to a campfire is to make your smores on a microwave safe dish and heat up in the microwave.  I also like to change up the chocolate and use maybe Reeses or Snickers candy in place of the Hersheys chocolate.  Yummy!!!

    • Lindarella

      My favorite memory of eating smores was with my Cub Scout Pack, when I was the Cub Master.  It was great!

    • Marcie

      Oh My! Its been more than 3 decades since my multitude of young cousins and I would camp together by the lake but just the thought of smores brings those memories flooding back. We had so much homemade fun and smores was an integral part of those memories!

      Growing up my parents owned 3 acres of land in Northern Illinois. We used to have bonfires all the time and make smores. We often used chocolate frosting instead of a Hershey’s bar!!

    • Elizabethconner

      I remember going camping with my family and we were all roasting marshmellows to put on our smores….I obviously got to close to the flame and my flip flop started melting. Everyone thought it was so funny! I love making them they are so fun!

      My great grandma taught me how to make Smores with a twist!  She always added a pretzel mashed into the melty chocolate.  I hope oneday I can teach my great grandma this delicious treat!

    • Everyone in my family would burn the heck out of their marshmallows and eat em up real quick but I was always the patient one.  One day I made one for one of my siblings and suddenly they had to do it like me…eventually I had the whole family spending a generous amount of time making sure their s’more was the softest and best s’more.

    • Mb15415

      O wow… this summer was the first time my 6 year old experienced a Smores!  We dont live in an area where we can have a fire pit, bon fire etc.. so we emptied an old BBQ grill, filled it with wood and sticks and lit it on fire… then our heavenly smores were served! He really liked them!

    • Callen

      Ahh, the days when I was still single and we would have a cookout ending with smores.  If you acted helpless and scared of the fire, the guys would help you! 
       tee, hee

      Ahhh, camping with the girl scouts was when I got to enjoy smores!  It was usually the highlight of each evening.  I definitely like my marshmallows lightly toasted and not burnt.  Mmmmm, good!

      I remember the first time I introduced my eldest daughter to smore. She looked at me, then at this tasty treat I was handing to her and she said “but momma it looks sooo messy”. Haha.

    • Ecates00

      When I was in college, I went over to my sister’s house and we were going to make smokes, but we realized there were only mini marshmallows in the house. So we broke up the graham crackers into smaller pieces and we used the chocolate from an advent calendar (the little ones shaped like christmas figures) and roasted the mini marshmallows over candles. Unfortunately the scented candle added some flavor to the marshmallows, but it was a night with friends I won’t forget!

      My dad and I used to make hot dogs and smores by the lake near our house, we cut and cured palmetto stems to cook them, not sure if that was good for us either but it was fun :) Sometimes he would add a little honey to the graham cracker before adding the chocolate and marshmellow.

    • SWillis

      I live in Alabama, and in April there was a line of tornadoes that hit our area. My husband and I were living in an apartment, and we hadn’t really made many acquaintances with our neighbors yet. When the power went out, we  happened to make friends with a couple who lived downstairs from our apartment. We made the most of the event and grilled whatever meat we had in our fridges. We were able to both contribute our ingredients for smores, and we cooked them over the neighbors’ blow torch which she uses for sculpting. It was so much fun, and we look back now and laugh at the whole situation. We’re close friends with that couple now. :-)

    • A fun twist is to take a caramel and creme chew and melt inside the s’more.  Trust me, it’s awesome.

    • amckenz

      Just saw a recipe on Paula Dean’s show where she used brownies instead of graham crackers, marshmellow fluff and a reese’s instead of chocolate bar!

    • Mhuebner2003

      My favorite memory was just a month ago while camping out with my parents. My daughter, who was only 18 months at the time, tried her first smore. Her eyes lit up, and she said mmmm good..with a gooey, chocolaty smile. It was so cute!

      I can remember sitting around a fire with my Daddy, making s’mores as a child.  We’d take special care to get the marshmallow toasted “just right” and get it squished onto the chocolate still piping hot.  Daddy was diabetic, so he couldn’t eat them, but he’d make me all I could hold.  Those were the days!  I’m 41 years old and Daddy passed almost 3 years ago.  I still miss him like crazy.

      My favorite memory is when my children were young,we were such young parents, we had no money. We would take the children camping and the highlight of the trip was having a campfire at night and roasting marshmallows and then making s’mores . Now that they are grown and married it would be wonderful to have a big s’more night at our home. They all live away and I would love to do this when we all get together again.

    • Angela Y.

      When my sister and I were little girls, our dad would light the fireplace in the house and we would try to do the s’more thing the old fashion way by putting them on stick and melting them with the fire. After a few attempts and a couple of burnt and blown up marshmallows later one night, we ended up microwaving them and eating them that way. I used to love making my sister a plate full of s’mores in the microwave when we would get home from school and both of our parents were at work. I loved doing that. Thinking back on it now, I really do miss those days. I almost felt as if I was about to cry. It’s very nostalgic. I may have to go make some s’mores now, haha! :)

      My favorite memory is making them in our fireplace at home :)

      Well my family always loves making smores when we go camping or rent a cabin in the woods some where for a week but my favorite smore memories are at home.  When I was in high school and middle school during the summer or after school when my sisters and I were home alone we would get strong smore cravings.  Although smores are best over a fire we would improvise by making them in the microwave.  The smore would be so delicious we would have all the evidence eaten before my mom got home from work. :-)

      My daughter’s birthday is December 26th and last year here in Columbia, SC it snowed so for her birthday party we had a S’mores party in the snow!!! It was so much fun and she had a blast

    • Dclin2

      Smores are always a favorite at my daughter’s sleepovers.  They would be thrilled…

    • W_bouton

      My gang like to make smores and then dip them in vanilla frosting. So rich!!!

    • Rachel

      Every year we set up a tent in the backyard and have a campout including smores. This summer we actually slept in the tent because my autistic child was finally able to handle that part of the fun. Next summer we will try to leave home and do the whole process with a tent and smores of course.

    • Mrsamanda

      The first time I had smores was when my motherin law fixed them in the microwave!

    • Ethrift1

      I remember that I would always catch my marshmallows on fire and then it would be so burnt but I loved it that way!

    • Caathy

      while camping we maked S’mors with a twist… we added panutbutter and bananas!   We call this  ” THE ELVIS”  Its so good    ;- )

    • Twinmom6211

      making them in the fireplace in the winter is great

    • ChristinaD

      I tried making them in the microwave, but the marshmallows popped and it exploded from cooking too long.  lol

    • Peppersuperstar

      My brothers and I attempted to make them at home on the stove…it was a mess, but they were delicious! Smores with apples is a good combo.

    • SabySmooth1

      We decided to do indoor ones over Brownies one night. Graham crackers, pour in the batter and bake. top with a bag of marshmallows, and put on broil to brown them. Yum!

    • Kendra Brown

      Camping with my husband and 4 boys this year, slightly burnt (that’s when they’re the best!) marshmallows over the campfire, melting chocolate, and graham crackers crumbs. My boys looked like you rolled them in mud, so sticky, the ants were having fun chasing them!

    • Jackieferg

      I like smores with banana slices in them.

    • christy

      We have gone camping 4 times this summer and have loved s’mores each time!!  I scrapbook and have some great pics of us biting on the s’more with the marshmallow trailing off in a string of goodiness!!!

      Campfire with family, nothing better than that

    • Ledlab

      We have our neighbor kids over often to have smores in our backyard fire pit. So we have and always will have lots of fond memories:) Especially the night we told ghost stories and half the kids went running home!

    • Lynnhelms

      we had a sisters night out with family on my sisters new deck! fun, fun, fun

    • Bekahlail

      Favorite memory is camping by the lake when we were kids and sitting out by the fire roasting marshmellows for S’mores and telling funny stories!

    • Lori

      My favorite memory is going to my great aunt’s farm when we were growing up and making smores out in the middle of this beautiful field at a bonfire. Now my family lives all over the country and maybe get to see eachother once a year. Wonderful memories!

    • Cmrooks

      I love watching my 5 year old get covered in chocolate and marshmallow when she eats a s’mores. Cutest dirty kid in the world!!

    • Carolinelewis123

      My favorite  is to roast a marshmallow… then put the chocolate inside when you remove the stick!  Then the chocolate melts and it is delicious!

    • melinda

      My favorite memories of smores is making them in the backyard during bonfires with my kids friends

    • Anonymous

      Last year my friend had a swimming party for some children friends and she had a patio firepit that we used to roast marshmallows on for s’mores. She had a new twist on it by putting out the marshmallows in a cloth-lined basket, assorted candy bars in a basket and chocolate, honey and cinnamon graham crackers on a platter. The candy bars were kit kat, snickers, milkyway, reeses cups and of course hersheys bars. It was fun to try all the different variations for every taste. The cinnamon grahams with hershey bars was a favorite of mine. I had never thought to stray from traditional s’mores but I’ll always mix it up from now on. You should give it a go!!

      WhenI was around 11 years old, my parents went out for the evening and my brother and i decided to make s’more’s using the gas stove. I thought it was a great idea. My parents, not so much!

    • Yoja2006

      I actually do not have any memories of making s’mores as a kid – did not even know what they were until I became a young adult.  We just bought a backyard firepit and want to make these with my husband and son before summer is over.  We just bought a tent and were going to plan a short camping trip and think this would be a fun treat to try!

    • Deb112

      My daughter’s 13th birthday party. The girls made smores outside, around the patio grill and had a great time. 

    • Couponmjb

      I grew up eatting smores at campfire event and now my children enjoy the same!  Delicious treat!

    • Lauren

      Making s’mores at summer camp. Lots of chocolate and marshmallows with no parents around.

    • Janice9

      Camping with my family as a child, and now, camping with my grandchildren…can’t wait for the weather to cool off so we can get out in the camper again!

      My favorite memory of my husband, 3 sons and 2 of their girlfriends will be us cooking marshmellows over our outdoor fireplace during the power outage here in Alabama in April due to the tornadoes. We had such a wonderful time!

    • Always with family and friends. That’s the best way to eat S’mores. Also try them with dark chocolate! And semi-burnt marshmallows? Yes!

    • Jenifer Smith

      Smores by the campfire is always the best!

      I had Smores for the first time this year…so my favorite/only memory is by the campfire!

    • amy

      Making smores with our 2 kids in our backyard fire pit is always fun -even in the summer!

    • Caseywilliams1981

      I love that my husband and I now have begun this year to make smores with our little boy and that makes for some good memories!

    • Kristina Bruce

      We always add peanut butter before the marshmallows. So good.

    • Mon23boys

      My boys were 3 & 4 roasting their marshmallows, but were scared of fire so would stand so far away their marshmallows would not get hot. Very cute.

    • Wcushelley

      It always a party with our little ones when we make smores.

    • Elissa

      Loved making smores with the the older children when they were younger in our backyard in TX. We’d have friends over and roast weenies on a stick as well.

    • Allisonking77

      girls scout camp!

    • Lashti5

      We have a fire pit in the backyard that we love to roast marshmellows and make Smores!! Love, love, love it….when we can’t escape and go camping, making Smores helps :)

    • Meagan J

      I learned to make smores at girl scout camp and I continue to carry on the tradition at every campfire I meet! I take the graham crackers put a marshmallow and some chocolate in between too of them then wrap them in foil. I put them on a roasting stick and hold over the fire until the chocolate is melted and the marshmallow is toasty! Open them up and it’s a hot, gooey treat for everyone to enjoy!

    • Dlbandjeb

      My family usually makes smores once a year. On July 4th. My 2 year old covered his self in marshmellow during the firework show. We thought he was eating them but due to the dark we didnt notice he had covered  his self with marshmellow and looked like a giant marshmellow until we came back inside in the light.

    • Kaie3smith

      We are big campers and love to go with extended family.  When I think of smores I think of fall camping with the fam.  It’s coming up soon and I can’t wait!

    • Nessy

      tonight my kids and I made microwave smores with nutella! Awesome and fun to watch!!

    • Wendygriffaw

      After a day of swimming and grilling we love to make smores by the pool.

    • Amy M

      Fav. memory would be my entire family at the lake and burning the marshmellows!! Always remember this!!

    • Sttyler

      I remeber being around 10 years old sitting around a big fire with all my family and my closest friends. all eatting smores… And just having an great time together.

    • Mommyt121

      I love the line in the movie The Sandlot when one little boy ask the other if he wants s’mores.  the other kids says, “some more of what?”  

    • Michelle C

      Growing up, my mom would be spontaneous and make them on the stovetop of our oven :)  If she felt we needed something fun and unexpected, she would throw everything together to surprise us :)   futurecrook@yahoo.com

    • Ray C

      Yummy….I want some now :)  I have a lot of memories growing up having them, but my little kids have NEVER had them (1yr and 2yr), so it’d be a memory maker to make this their first time …  ocdcleanfreak@yahoo.com

    • Hammondsjc

      Making s’mores for my class for Christmas!

    • Becky Glasscock

      Bought a s’mores making kit and my girls used it all the time. Growing up we alway made them over campfires at church retreats. It’s a must to pass this delicious desert down to your children.

    • Phifer

      Regardless of the time of year, if my husband or I are craving a s’mores, we turn on our gas fireplace and toast marshmallows from the comfort of our living room :o)

    • Cristi

      Beach bonfires as a kid. Yummy!

    • michelle

      roasting them over a capfire in the backyard!

    • charlottesaver

      Smores are one of those small things we take for granted. We assume every child knows what a smores is.  I did too until my family took two families from the inner city camping last year. It was their first time going camping. The highlight of the trip was watching the kids excitment as they made and ate smores for the first time. They had never made smores. They mention seeing pre-made smores bars in the store but their mother could never afford to buy any extra snacks. Every time my family makes smores (and we do it a lot), we think of the smiles on those kids sticky faces.

    • jessica enggren

      my favorite s’mores memory is camp fire with family and telling stories while we make s’mores and hotdogs

    • Emscout9

      my first summer camp when I was 11 years old – (emscout9 at Hotmail dot com)

    • a kesler

      I think white chocolate would make great smores

    • Crystal

      I’ve eaten s’mores since I was a kid with my mother and now sharing that special treat with my kids is something fun and special.

    • slmiller

      My favorite S’mores memory actually happened this past spring. We were sitting outside at the fire pit and decided to make s’mores. We had everything on hand except marshmallows. The kids had some Peeps left in their Easter baskets so we thought we would give it a shot. Not the best idea, the sugar on the Peeps caused them to catch fire quickly. I thought it was really sad watching those little yellow chicks burst into flames and shrivel and melt but my son thought it was cool. Our makeshift s’mores weren’t the best, but it was a fun family memory!!

    • Melissabieniek

      i remember roasting marshmallows after we had a cookout.  Roasting them over the grill when we were finished cooking.

    • Tammy

      My favorite memories is going to our best friends lot where they are going to build their new house soon. We both have 4 kids so when we get together it is alot of fun! The kids (and husbands too) love the last part of our evenings together when we gather around the fire pit and make s’mores and sing praise music together! :)
