S’More Ideas for National S’mores Day

There is nothing like a delicious oozy gooey s’more roasted over a fire. So pull up
 your camping chairs- it’s time to celebrate National S’Mores Day! On August 10th,
 my family always goes all out, with different varieties of s’mores and I’m here to share 
 some great ideas with you.

I have 3 kids that love their sweets but can never agree on what kind of s’mores we
should make. So we always make s’mores bar. We have all varieties of chocolate 
bars, peanut butter cups, and even sliced strawberries. The kids love mixing and 
matching to create their own flavors.


We also love making ice cream cone s’mores. All you need is a sugar cone and stuff
it with mini marshmallows and any kind of chocolate you love. Then wrap it in tin
foil and throw it into the fire for a minute or two. The outcome is the warmest ice cream
cone of marshmallowy, chocolate goodness you will ever have! Plus it isn’t quite as
messy as the traditional s’mores.

Now if you are like me and are trying to be a little more health-conscious, I have 
found a way for you to celebrate as well. May I introduce you to the Campfire
Banana S’mores?


  • 1 medium ripe banana
  • 2 tablespoons mini marshmallows
  • 1 tablespoon bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 3 graham cracker squares


  1.  Cut through the peel on the inside curve of the banana with a paring knife. Peel the banana open from the cut, but leave the banana in the peel. Being careful not to cut through the bottom peel, cut the banana in half lengthwise; then cut crosswise in 1/4-inch intervals. Gently mash the marshmallows into the banana, then top with chocolate chips.
  2. Tear off a 12-inch square of heavy-duty foil. Place the prepared banana in the middle of the foil. Crimp the foil closed.
  3. Prepare a campfire and let it burn down to the coals. Cook the packet 4 to 6 inches above the coals until the s’more is warm and melty, 7 to 10 minutes. Use graham crackers to scoop or crush them as a topping.
  4.  You can add anything additional to your boat. I love adding fresh strawberries, blueberries, and other varieties of fruit. The best part of all these ideas is you can go traditional and roast them over a 
    campfire, start up the air fryer and throw them in for a few minutes, or even use the 
    microwave for a quick fix (just nix the tin foil)!

I hope you all enjoy National S’mores Day as much as we do here. I would love it if 
you’d share with me your favorite s’mores recipes and ideas. Send them over in the comments below!
