More S'mores

Last week was National S'mores Day. It will be celebrated annually in my household from here on out. S'mores hold a special place in our family and my sister is a gourmet S'mores bar maker, using golden grahams, etc. She's taken it to an art form that I highly doubt anyone can beat.

My sisters and I all love a good camping trip, camp fire, camp song and roasted marshmallow. I will confess to making S'mores by toasting marshmallows on the stove top. This might be happening right now as I write this if only I had marshmallows in the house. I guess I actually don't have any chocolate in the house either, but I did stock up on graham crackers when I saw them on sale recently. So it was only natural that I would own the cookbook S'Mores: Gourmet Treats for Every Occasion by Lisa Adams.

It is filled with many ways to enjoy a perfectly toasted marshmallow with fruit, chocolate, cookies, cakes and many other treats. Wouldn't it be fun to do a S'more recipe a week and work your way through this cookbook. What a great idea for a photo-filled book of recipes. This recipe using candy canes sounds quite lovely for the holidays. I can so easily see a tray of these along with some steaming hot cocoa, by a fire with friends and family and with the scent of pine tree and visions of lights and baubles all around.

If you're looking for a fun, unique dessert recipe this great little gem may be just the place to start looking for a great interactive recipe everyone can help create. Do you love S'mores? What are your favorite foods to mix with a good toasted marshmallow? When do you most enjoy S'mores: camping trips, family barbecues, living room fireplace? Have a great Monday and if you have a chance, enjoy a S'more today!

Oh, yum!! My favorite way to make basic s'mores is to use Lu Dark Chocolate Covered Biscuits instead of Hershey chocolate and grahams. Because I'm kind of a chocolate snob. :)

Love it Jane! I'm my own kind of chocolate snob, ha-ha. I use the large Guittard milk chocolate chips & lots of them.
