All About S'mores

One of the best parts of camping is when the sun sets for the evening and everyone gathers close by the fire, huddled in sweatshirts and blankets. 

Someone in the group might pull out a guitar or the radio plays slowly in the background. A fun song might be sung or a game is played to keep everyone entertained for the evening. Eventually, everyone’s favorite part of the night is here. The time when the wooden sticks are pulled out and it is time for s’mores to concocted. 

Growing up, only graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows were used to create s’mores. However, it seems like these days, s’mores are getting much more creative and tasty! Here are three s’more recipes that if you haven’t tried, you need to make sure that you incorporate into your next campfire roast.
