About S'mores

A s'more (sometimes spelled smore) is a traditional nighttime campfire treat popular in the United States and Canada consisting of a roasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between two pieces of graham cracker. National S'mores Day is celebrated yearly on August 10th in the United States. S'more appears to be a contraction of the phrase, 'some more.' While the origin of the dessert is unclear, the first recorded version of the recipe can be found in the publication 'Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts' of 1927. The recipe is credited to Loretta Scott Crew, who reportedly made them by the campfire for the Scouts. It is unknown whether the Girl Scouts were the first to make s'mores, but there appears to be no earlier claim to this snack.
