May I Have S'more?

Almost nothing screams Summertime quite like S'mores. The crunchy graham cracker, the ooey-gooey chocolate and warm, toasty marshmallow. THAT, my friends is Heaven! When you have alot of get togethers around the fire, the same old-same old gets a bit old. You gotta change it up a bit! There are many variations of S'mores, but I'll just name a few here.

  • Chocolate graham cracker + plain marshmallow + chocolate + slice of strawberry
  • Chocolate graham cracker + strawberry marshmallow + chocolate + slice of strawberry
  • Chocolate graham cracker + plain marshmallow + Andes Mint
  • Chocolate graham cracker + plain marshmallow + chocolate + peanut butter
  •  
  • Chocolate graham cracker + plain marshmallow + chocolate + peanut butter + banana slice
  • Cinnamon graham cracker + plain marshmallow + granny smith apple slice + dark chocolate
  • Chocolate graham cracker + toasted coconut marshmallow + chocolate
  • Chocolate graham cracker + plain marshmallow + white chocolate + a raspberry

What is YOUR favorite kind of S'more?

Here is my favorite S'more variation:
