August 10th is the day to celebrate all things S’mores! The first recipe for a S’more showed up in a Girl Scout publication in 1927. The name is taken from the delicious, gooey taste. Everyone always wants some more!!

I did not have access to a fire pit, a grill, a gas stove or a sterno can this week, but I did find a way to enjoy the flavor combo of chocolate, graham crackers and marshmallows! And yes I have made S’mores with each of those heating sources in the past!

For my treats this week I bought some marshmallows, graham crackers, premium Belgian chocolate and some long toothpicks. I used a Scentsy Velata to melt the delicious chocolate. I am a Velata Independent Consultant, so I have access to the best in warmers and chocolates! It took about 10 minutes to get everythinbg set up.

I first smashed the graham crackers in a plastic bag until fine. This is much cheaper than buying graham cracker crumbs in the store and I think it actually tastes better too! I then assembled everything. Put the marshmallows on a long toothpick. Warm the chocolate in the Velata warmer (it takes about 30 minutes – or you can also put the pack in the microwave for 90 seconds. Put the graham cracker crumbs in a small dish. Let the assembly begin!

I also put out strawberries and banana slices in case some guests did not like marshmallows. The results were great. It’s not the melted gooey mess, but still just as delicious.

If you are looking for some alternatives to the campfire S’more, I have included a few recipes I found online! Enjoy.
