HAPPY NATIONAL S’MORES DAY!
There’s something about a food holiday that makes a Monday more exciting.
Summer isn’t over until you’ve had at least one s’more, that’s the rule. We couldn’t make this one up. If there were any day to celebrate the season, this is it: National S’mores Day.
And we don’t mean “sprinkle graham cracker crumbs and chocolate chips over your ice cream and call it a day” (although that WOULD be delicious). We’re talking about bonafide, campfire-cookin’, “ooey-gooey chocolatey goodness” s’mores. But if you can’t make it to a bonfire today, or if you haven’t quite yet mastered marshmallow roasting without charring it to a crisp, you can still celebrate this lovable holiday properly with these recipes.
Satisfy all your s’mores cravings without the hassel…or the fire hazard.
The Simple & Genius
From add-ons to substitutions, these recipes pay homage to the s’more in its classic form…with a new and delicious twist!
If two of your favorite chocolate treats had a child, this would be the heavenly creation. We’re still wondering why never thought of this before! Oreos, chocolate-chip, double chocolate…the possibilities are endless!

Thinking Outside the Cracker
If you’re looking for new & surprising ways to indulge in s’mores – check out these mouth-watering recipes to get inspired!
If there’s any way to describe this dish, it’s “a masterpiece”:
“The pavlova is chocolate-y by way of sifted cocoa powder and folded in bits of dark chocolate. The 7-minute frosting acts like a marshmallow and gets all toasty when a flame kisses it. – The crushed graham cracker is sprinkled on every. single. layer.”
One user commented, “s’mores are my jam, but pavlova is my symphony.” Same.
Sure, as scrumptious as it looks, you might be thinking “I can not make a homemade s’mores pie”. We politely respond: YOU’RE WRONG. Three ingredients for the graham cracker crust, three for the chocolate ganache, and only four for the marshmallow. So worth it. Not convinced yet?
“These s’mores tartlets […] are phenomenal. No, way better than that. Downright heavenly. The toasted marshmallow topping is enough to send you into dessert oblivion. Bye.”
If you’ve never tasted, nor made an icebox cake (especially THIS icebox cake) – stop what you’re doing, and try it now. You’ll thank us later.
If you’re unfamiliar, “an icebox cake is one that requires a fridge, not an oven, to work its magic. Layers of a creamy filling and cookies chill overnight together, which sets the filling and transforms the cookies in soft cake-like layers. Icebox cakes are easy to assemble, and the hardest part is waiting for them to set up in the fridge.”
Creamy, fluffy, gooey goodness – “the last s’mores inspired dessert you’ll ever need.” And that’s saying something.
Self-described as “bite-sized heaven”, this recipe is so easy you’ll be using it time and again. As the creator describes, this basic truffle recipe has been “s’mores-ified” but you can swap out different toppings and flavors to create the velvety-smooth truffle of your dreams! The gift that keeps on giving…
“To make this recipe, you’ll need just a few simple ingredients and an insatiable craving for fast s’mores.” Just five ingredients: egg roll wrappers, graham cracker crumbs, marshmallows, chocolate frosting and chocolate sauce. They made sure to make this recipe easy, because you need these spring rolls in your life…NOW.

“This is one of those recipes that’s so brainless, I hardly feel justified calling it a recipe. Simply toss some chocolate chips in a skillet or oven-safe dish. Top with jumbo marshmallow halves. Toast for 5 or so minutes, pull out the graham crackers, and voilà!” As the author describes, this is the perfect party-friendly way to effortlessly enjoy s’mores year-round!
Seriously, how good do these look. This divine creation unites a buttery graham cracker crust with a moist chocolate cupcake, and a pillow of light and fluffy marshmallow icing. SOLD.
“Pudding shots couldn’t be easier and they can be dressed up as seen in the photographs, or simply piped into mini plastic cups for a casual backyard barbeque. Chocolate pudding mix combines with milk, Fluffed Marshmallow Vodka and Cool Whip to create a fun, simple and boozy sweet treat that’s sure to be the hit at any party.” Enough said.
