S’More Great Recipes
It appears the first recorded s’more recipe was published in 1927 in the manual “Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts.” Whether the Girl Scouts invented them may be up for debate, but the fact is, we’ve all been enjoying them for over 80 years.
The recipe has evolved over the decades, moving from merely a campfire dessert to a gourmet treat. S’more cakes, pies, brownies, ice cream and even breakfast foods are readily available year-round; people are even serving them at weddings, parties and corporate events. It seems as though everyone is anxious to enjoy a sweet bite of camping nostalgia.
We, of course, knew our campers would have great s’more recipes…and we weren’t disappointed. From those submitted, we are pleased to announce that the one uploaded by Catherine Ward of Brainerd, Minnesota (USA) was drawn at random to be our grand prize winner. Her entry combines the crispness of wafers, the gooeyness peanut butter, the chocolate goodness of a candy bar…and of course, the perfect marshmallow: Catherine will be receiving s’more-themed prize package as our way of saying “thanks” for entering.
Here’s her winning entry:
Chocolate, Caramel, Peanut Butter S’mores
1 over-sized marshmallows (or use 2 regular sized)
Mar’s Milky Way bar
2 Tablespoons chunky peanut butter
caramel syrup (the kind you use for ice cream topping)
4 thin, crisp chocolate wafers (such as Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers)
Cut one large marshmallow in half to make two flat, round disks. Spread two wafers with one tablespoon crunchy peanut butter. Drizzle with caramel sauce/syrup. Slice a Mar’s Milky Way bar and put one or two slices on each prepared wafer. Roast both marshmallow halves to a golden brown…don’t burn! Place the roasted marshmallow halves on each of the two prepared wafers, top with unprepared/plain wafer, carefully “smoosh” a bit so that the marshmallow bloops out and the chocolate bar slice melts into the peanut butter. Enjoy!
