These Are Not Your Average S’mores

Ah, fall. We love the long, carefree days followed by cool evenings spent outside sharing ghost stories around a campfire. Especially if there are s’mores.

As far as we’re concerned, nobody is ever too old for ghost stories and sweets. But as we grow up our tastes do become a bit more refined, and that certainly holds true for s’mores. If plain old marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate no longer satisfy your palate, never fear! We have three easy recipes that will take your s’mores from ‘basic’ to ‘bon appetit’.

Not your average s'more

The Gimmelots

This is the easiest, and perhaps most crowd-pleasing upgrade you’ll ever make. Take all the regular s’mores ingredients (chocolate, graham crackers, marshmallows) and simply add peanut butter. We call them The Gimmelots because your friends will want to eat lots of them and go back for seconds… and thirds.

Pro tip: try it with fair trade dark chocolate for an even classier campfire experience.

The Salted Caramel S’more

This rich, ooey-gooey upgrade will make your friends think you’re some kind of culinary genius. All you need to do is make a few easy ingredient switches:

– Chocolate graham crackers

Equal Exchange Caramel Crunch dark chocolate bar

– Marshmallows

– Coarsely ground salt.

Give the roasted marshmallow a quick sprinkle of salt before assembling the s’more, and voila! Everybody will assume you just graduated from a Parisian cooking school.

The Elvis

Inspired by Elvis Presley’s favorite sandwich, this s’more will get everybody’s toes tapping. Here’s what you need:

– graham crackers

– sliced bananas

– bacon (cooked)

– peanut butter

– marshmallows

Equal Exchange Milk Chocolate

Assembly is required. These are not for the amateur s’mores eater, and will be delightfully messy. Just make sure you don’t let them drip on your blue suede shoes.
