I decided to start 2014 with one of my favorite flavor combinations of all times – marshmallow, chocolate and graham cracker. The S’more. A seemingly simple campfire creation has turned into a cultural phenomenon. It’s amazing! Buzzfeed has given us 19 s’mores recipes that will change your life, while others have created beauty products like this S'mores Perfume Oil.
See what I mean…it's a big deal. Even though I love a traditional campfire S’more…these bars are fun to make, easier to serve at a party and don’t require a roaring campfire. I have made plenty of S’mores over the gas stove – it is just not the same as the real deal campfire. Give these a try and see why everyone is going crazy over this ooey gooey goodness.
