Marshmallows? Check. Graham Crackers? Check. Chocolate? Check.
If you have ever had a camping trip interrupted by rain or craved a summer time treat during a blizzard, then you are already familiar with adapting recipes from time to time. I have enjoyed Smores my entire life but it took having my own children for the in depth conversations on observations.
Who invented Smores? Yep never even crossed my mind until my own kids asked.
No one has actually claimed to be the inventor of the recipe but the Girl Scouts of America were the first to publish this campfire treat sensation.
Why these 3 ingredients? We had a similar question once during a PB & J picnic. Again never crossed my mind.
Luck I guess.
How did the inventor choose the name of this treat? Of course it’s obvious after you have one you want more.
Originally when the Girl Scouts published the recipe they called them “Some Mores” which over time got shortened to “Smores”.
Here are some recipes we found on the net to keep Smore Adventures going.
