The s’more is the official dessert of the camping season. They’re delicious, easy to make, and the ingredients are usually packed into every RV.
Traditional s’mores are made with graham crackers, a piece of chocolate, and a marshmallow melted over an open fire. Constructed into a little sandwich, the hot marshmallow slightly melts the chocolate—creating a gooey and sweet treat around the campfire.
With the advent of various types and flavors of marshmallows, the s’more is becoming a lot more adventurous. Mess with your tastebuds and try out these five tasty (albeit a little weird) s’more combinations.
1. Piña Colada Peep S’more
Cooking marshmallows and watching their transformation is a fine art. Will they melt off the stick, catch on fire, or turn a beautiful brown? Anyone who has played around with Marshmallow Peeps knows how fun it is to see their fiery destruction.
Peeps come in the shape of chicks and bunnies and are found in many different flavors and colors—even coconut. For this recipe take a Peeps Coconut Delights marshmallow conveniently dipped in chocolate, melt it a bit, and place it with a piece of pineapple between two coconut cookies.
2. The “Part Of A Complete Breakfast” S’more
Who says you can’t have s’mores for breakfast? This tidy little s’more packs the flavors of a complete breakfast into one bite. It’s very efficient for those on the go.
This recipe uses a seasonal Maple Roasters marshmallow from Campfire Marshmallows. Melt the maple marshmallow, place it between two golden waffles with a piece of cooked bacon, and chow down. For a taste of some OJ, add a slice of orange inside the s’more sandwich.
3. Trick or Treat S’more
Place the slightly browned and melted pumpkin or ghost candy on top of a piece of Rice Krispies Treat. So what’s the trick? Hide a piece of candy corn inside the melted marshmallows.
4. Peanut Butter & Jelly S’more
A fun way to find new candy is to check out an Asian supermarket. The Japanese get creative with their marshmallows with the Eiva Marshmallow filled with blueberry jam.
Carefully melt a few of these little marshmallows and place them in between two oatmeal cookies spread with peanut butter for the classic sandwich taste.
5. Chocolate Overload S’more
Even though marshmallows are fun in their own right, when they meet up with chocolate, magic happens. How about making chocolate the star? Jet-Puffed Chocolate Swirl marshmallows are a great combination with either chocolate cookies (or brownies), and a smear of Nutella.
For even more decadence, add a piece of milk chocolate to the s’more-wich.
