August 10 – S'mores Day

Posted on August 10, 2014

I love a good campfire! Whether your chilling on beach, out in the desert, high in the mountains, or even in your own backyard, stoking a bonfire all night long with a large group of friends or just tossing a few logs on a warm-me-up evening campfire, it's a special kind of cozy outdoor fun.

And, of course, it's a perfect excuse to make s'mores!

S'mores of course get their name from the fact that many a person, faced with the nighttime treat of a roasted marshmallow and a slab of chocolate sandwiched between two graham crackers, wants Some More! This treat may have been invented by Girl Scouts; at any rate, the first recorded recipe for S'mores can be found in a 1927 Girl Scout guide.

If you cannot afford to go on vacation this August, try pitching a tent in your backyard and enjoy a staycation

Grab an old wheelbarrow from
a junkyard to make a fire pit!
Here are some helpful hints about building a backyard fire pit. And here are five simple steps to campfire safety. 

Experiment with the flavors of s'mores to create your own special dessert...or try one of these amazing-sounding treats
