Saturday is National S'more Day!

MarshmallowAugust 10 is National S'mores Day! The first official s'mores recipe was published in the Girl Scout Handbook in 1927, but culinary historians believe the tradition began much earlier. Over the years, the recipe was passed from camper to camper and eventually became the most famous fireside dessert.  Today, grab a few Girl Scouts and friends, make a campfire, and have some s'mores! No campfire? No Problem? You can toast marshmallows in a toaster oven or a microwave. Happy National S'mores Day!
