Happy National S'More's Day! I must admit that this is truly one of my favorite holidays! I love marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate – so when all three ingredients come together – it is the perfect treat!
I am so excited to share this holiday with you and I hope this post will inspire you to enjoy some delicious S’mores today!
Here is some history and interesting facts about S’mores and how this day came about from Holiday Insights (http://www.holidayinsights.com/other/smoresday.htm).
Date When Celebrated: Always on August 10th
S'mores are a favorite campsite treat for young and old kids. If you're at a campfire, chances are, there's S'mores. Sticky and gooey, and loaded with sugar and carbs, S'mores are nothing short of delicious. Who was the first person to create S'mores? We don't know. But, we're all sure glad they did!
National S'mores Day celebrates this tasty summer treat. It's appropriately observed in August... campfire prime time. Don't limit your consumption of S'mores to the campfire. They are popular with kids year round, and can be baked in the oven, or microwave.
The origin of S'mores dates back to the 1920's. It's believed the recipe was created by the Campfire Girls. Girl Scouts soon discovered it, and found it to be chocolatey delicious. Before long, S'mores became a campfire staple for everyone. S'more folklore suggests that S'mores got its name right by the campfire. After eating one, young kids chanted "gimme some more!"
While much is written about National S'mores Day, our research has been unable to verify that this is an officially recognized national day (which requires an act of Congress). Don't let that stop you from celebrating this day with a few S'mores.
How to make S'mores:
