All About Making S’mores
The original recipe on how to make s’mores appeared in the American Girl Scout Handbook in 1927. This recipe utilized Graham crackers – first invented by Sylvester Graham way back in 1829, before anyone knew how to make s’mores – plus chocolate and marshmallows.
If you ask anyone today how to make s’mores you might get the original recipe that tells you how to make s’mores, or you might be told how to make s’mores a completely different way.
Here are some tips on how to make s’mores the traditional way:
Use Graham crackers which are more like cookies than crackers.
Get the crackers and chocolate ready before you toast the marshmallows. You can ‘roast’ them over a stove burner or use long metal forks for roasting over an outdoor fire pit or grill.
Marshmallows are ready when slightly brown outside and runny inside.
Sandwich chocolate with a toasted marshmallow between a halved cracker and squeeze together gently.
If you want to know how to make s’mores the Mexican way, use flour tortillas with crunchy peanut butter, chocolate chips and marshmallow. If you want to know how to make s’mores that are cold, spread peanut butter and instant chocolate pudding on Graham crackers and add whipped topping instead of marshmallows.
