Summer is on its way, and for many of us, that means one thing: S’mores. Long summer nights spent sitting around a campfire, a fire-pit, even someone’s charcoal grill, who could ask for me than good friends and good food?
We all love our classic combo of milk chocolate, graham crackers, and marshmallows, but this summer why not switch things up and offer your friends and family some exciting alternatives? Instead of just one option, give your guests at your 4th of July bash (or any summer cookout) different choices in graham crackers, chocolates, and other various toppings so they can create their own s’mores masterpieces!
Who know? Maybe your s’mores party will become talk of the town, inspiring your friends and neighbors to try out DIY S’mores at their next summer cookout!
Here are just a few fun ways to switch up your classic s’mores!
Chocolate Chip Cookie S’mores
Who needs graham crackers, right? We’re only joking; we could never permanently say no to the classic cracker, but we couldn’t resist switching them out just this once for another childhood favorite: chocolate chip cookies!
Cookies ‘n Cream S’mores
Maybe chocolate chip cookies aren’t you thing; that’s ok! We came up with this next one for those other cookie lovers, of a certain chocolate creme sandwich variety. 😉 Swap out the classic honey grahams for chocolate, and the milk chocolate for cookies and creme bars, and you have yourself the perfect Cookies ‘n Creme S’mores!
Chocolate Covered Strawberry S’mores
What would summer be without berries?! Add some fresh produce to your s’mores by slicing fresh strawberries to sandwich between molten marshmallow and melted chocolate.
White Chocolate Berry Jam S’mores
Our final fun s’mores idea is not for the neat freaks among us. Though a bit messy, the combo of blueberry jam, melted white chocolate, and toasted marshmallow is sure to be a crowd pleaser at your next summer party! Don’t like blueberry? Opt in any of your favorite jams, jellies, preserves, or even lemon curd!
