10 Best S’mores Recipes

My two boys just came back from being at camp for two weeks, and the first question I asked was, “Did you have s’mores”?  S’mores have been a summer favorite since I was a young child, and my most recent  S’mores Ice Cream Pie recipe was a hit with my kids and neighbors. I looked up the history of s’mores because we all have our childhood memory of enjoying them. Apparenly the history is somewhat unknown, but the first recipe was found in a publication of the Girl Scouts in 1927 by Loretta Scott Crew who made them at a campfire for the scouts. It is unknown when the name was shortened, but recipes for “Some Mores” are in various Girl Scout publications until at least 1973. I am amazed at all of the incredible ways to make S’mores. Take a look at 10 best S’mores recipes from some of my favorite websites:

S’mores Ice Cream Pie

My kids and I have been making a lot of S’mores this summer. I  had the idea of a S’more’s Ice Cream Pie, and I quickly put this recipe together. I used fudge ripple ice cream, but feel free to use any flavor of your favorite ice cream. You could also sprinkle the top with chocolate shavings, but kids were in such a hurry to eat it, I didn’t even have the time. Oh, well, here’s to summer 2012!

Chocolate-Coconut and Toffee Bars

Need a great dessert or sweet snack to feed a crowd? A friend of mine passed me a version of a recipe which I tweaked to create these Chocolate-Coconut Toffee Bars. These remind me of  a cross between S’mores and Hello Dolly bars, but these are a little less fattening.  I used low-fat graham crackers as the base with a toffee layer topped with coconut, pecans and dark chocolate. They are so easy to make, and the kids loved them (especially for a study break snack).
