Happy National S’mores Day!
Today we celebrate the wonder that is the combination of roasted marshmallow smashed between a piece of chocolate and two pieces of graham cracker. It’s an ooey gooey delight! Girl Scout Loretta Scout Crew is credited with creating this camping and summer staple and her recipe for “Some Mores” was published in the Girl Scout handbook Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts in 1927 (Chase’s Calendar of Events 2015).
Next time you’re sitting around a fire, be sure to bring the S’more supplies, and if you’re looking to enhance your S’more experience, I suggest swapping the chocolate bar for a peanut butter cup. If you like peanut butter, you’re going to love this.
As great as S’mores are, their biggest downfall is how sticky they are, so if you’re indulging in them, be sure to wash your hands before picking up your next read. Here are some recently added titles to our Reading Room.
