S’more combinations for your next summer bonfire

502

The recipe for a s’more is simple: graham cracker, chocolate, marshmallow. Within this simple formula, however, lie endless opportunities for creativity. Mixing up the flavors of the graham crackers and marshmallows and the types of chocolate people use can help them avoid getting stuck in a summer snack rut. Here are a few concoctions to try.

1. Tropical Paradise

The Tropical Paradise “Giraffe” is perfect for coconut fans. The mixture of chocolate, cracker and coconut makes this the s’more version of a Girl Scout Samoa cookie. Those who can’t make it to the beach this summer can close their eyes, take a bite and allow themselves to be transported to the land of palm trees.

2. Cara-mallow

The strong flavor of the cinnamon graham cracker is tempered by the smooth caramel of the Caramello. It’s a great option for s’more fans who are looking to create a variety of flavors in a single bite without making too big of a mess.

3. Fluffer Nutter

S’more tip: Placing the chocolate in between two toasted marshmallows helps it melt faster. The peanut butter and chocolate dissolve into the marshmallow, creating a messy but heavenly treat that lives up to its namesake.

5. It’s Mint To Be

Another s’more answer to the Girl Scouts, this creation tastes almost exactly like a thin mint. It’s a thick, rich s’more, and because it uses dark chocolate, people can almost convince themselves that it’s healthy.

6. Rocky Road

Rocky Road ice cream is chocolate, nuts and marshmallow cream. A Rocky Road s’more is chocolate, nuts and real toasted marshmallows. Fans of the ice cream flavor who don’t want to drag a freezer to a bonfire can find a good substitute in this s’more.

7. Snickerdoodle Supreme

Another intense flavor combination for those seeking more of a thrill. Honey, chocolate, caramel, nougat, peanuts, coconut and marshmallow come together to create an extreme s’more that will come in handy for climbing Mt. Everest or trekking through the Andes.

8. Crunch time

When it’s crunch time, people don’t want to mess around with fancy, gourmet s’mores. Roast the marshmallow, stick it on top of a Crunch bar, get some graham crackers in there, and you’re good to go.

9. Peanut Butter Sandwich

Original (or honey) graham

Like the Fluffer Nutter, this s’more is inspired by the classic American bagged-lunch sandwich. Unlike the Fluffer Nutter, rather than relying on someone else to determine the peanut butter/chocolate ratio, creators can slather on as much creamy (or crunchy) as they want. Fans of peanut butter and honey sandwiches can substitute honey graham crackers for the regular grahams.

10. Death By Chocolate

Chocolate fanatics who don’t want to be distracted by other lesser flavors will find comfort in this confection. For even more cocoa bliss, substitute the regular marshmallow with a Kraft “Chocolate and Vanilla Swirl” mallow. Or dip the entire thing in melted chocolate.

11. Cinnamon Toast Crunch

It’s Crunch Time, but with an added twist. This s’more is perfect for fans of the famous BYU chocolate cinnamon bears who forgot to run to the BYU Store candy counter before their camping trip.

12. Zebra

Having the same flavor on the top and bottom can get boring. Spice up the s’more by creating uneven chocolate layers.

13. Metropolitan

This s’more is the high-brow cousin of the Peanut Butter Sandwich for those who either can’t eat chocolate or don’t prefer it. This s’more can also serve as a palate cleanser for those suffering from a cocoa overload after eating Death By Chocolate.

14. Across the Universe

It’s simple, it’s full of caramel, and it’s name is a delightful combination of wordplay and pop culture references. What’s not to love?
