It’s National S’mores Day! Try Out Our Staff’s Favorite Gourmet Recipes

It’s one of our favorite days of the year—National S’mores Day! Celebrated every year on August 10, it’s the perfect excuse to enjoy our favorite summer treat.

After all, Girl Scouts are credited with the first recipe for s’mores back in 1927, so we have a bit of experience! And while there’s nothing wrong with a classic combo of graham crackers, marshmallow, and chocolate, our staff have perfected some gourmet recipes that we can’t keep to ourselves.

The Roni
by Roni Luckenbill, Chief Executive Officer

Although I am somewhat of a purist when it comes to s’mores, I sometimes will add a little Nutella to the graham cracker before placing a Ghirardelli dark chocolate bar carefully under the marshmallow! And my favorite Girl Scout Cookie is Little Brownie Bakers’ Girl Scout S’mores.

The Susan
by Susan Osborn, Chief Operations Officer

Everything good starts with ice cream, so hold the marshmallows and add ice cream! If you like melty chocolate, substitute the Hershey’s for Nutella! Best s’more ever!
