A S'more with a marshmallow that has been microwaved
|Main ingredient(s)||Graham crackers, chocolate, marshmallows|
A s'more (sometimes spelled smore) is a traditional nighttime campfire treat popular in the United States and Canada consisting of a roasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between two pieces of graham cracker. National S'mores Day is celebrated yearly on August 10th in the United States.
S'more appears to be a contraction of the phrase, "some more." While the origin of the dessert is unclear, the first recorded version of the recipe can be found in the publication "Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts" of 1927. Although it is unknown whether the Girl Scouts were the first to make s'mores, reports on the group as early in 1925 describe them, and there appears to be no earlier claim to this snack. It is unknown when the name was shortened, though recipes for "Some Mores" are in various Girl Scout publications until at least 1973.
Various confections containing graham cracker, chocolate, and marshmallow are often sold as some derivative of a s'more, however they are not necessarily heated or served in the same shape as the traditional s'more. The Hershey's S'mores bar is one example. Pop-Tarts also feature a s'mores variety.
