I understand that for some, messing with traditional s'mores is downright wrong. But if it's the taste of s'mores that you crave, you're probably open to venturing outside the box (or in this case, the campfire ring) to try a new twist on the classic favorite. Whether you're celebrating the end of school or being in the great outdoors, these delectable treats will satisfy your family's sweet cravings this summer and leave them shouting "We want S'MORE!"

OG (original) S'mores can be made by roasting marshmallows over a fire or BBQ. Have you ever tried making a s'more in the microwave? Ultra lazy, but super fast (12 seconds max!). If you need step-by-step instructions for either method, you'll find them here.

If you don't have 12 seconds (or a microwave), try spreading marshmallow creme on your graham crackers and simply sprinkling with chocolate chips. Dangerously easy...unforgettably yummy!

Marshmallow Creme SmoresDid you know? S'mores are so popular, they even have their own "holiday" - National S'mores Day is August 10.
