Constructing the Perfect S'more using Girl Scout Cookies

The most popular campfire treat is recognized each year on August 10th during National S’mores Day. But s’mores aren’t just for summertime fun, any day is the perfect day to celebrate all that gooey, heart-warming, smile-inducing deliciousness!

S'mores hold a very special place in Girl Scout history. The first-known recorded version of a "s'mores" recipe can be found in an official Girl Scout publication from 1927. The recipe is credited to Loretta Scott Crew, who reportedly made s'mores by the campfire for a group of Girl Scouts. Originally called "some mores," it is unknown when the name was shortened to "s'mores," but recipes using the longer name can be found in various Girl Scout publications up through 1971.
