National S’Mores Day – August 10, 2015

Camping and bonfires and summer, graham crackers and marshmallow and chocolate – some things just belong together.

Some attribute the origins of S’mores to the Girl Scouts in the early 20th century, others attribute the recipe to an outdoors-y entrepreneur. Regardless of its origin, S’mores are a simple dessert consisting of a roasted marshmallow with a layer of chocolate bar sandwiched between two graham crackers. This ooey, gooey treat is loved and devoured by millions across the United States. S’mores have been a staple of summer camp fires for over 90 years and their popularity has grown to the point that they have their own holiday! August 10th is National S’mores Day, and we’re doing it up big at Cookies by Design/Cupcake by Design with S’more Cupcakes: rich chocolate cupcake with a graham cracker center, frosted with fluffy marshmallow frosting, topped with a mini S’more and marshmallows, drizzled with melted chocolate. Come in on National S’Mores Day and get yourself this sweet summer treat for only $1.50 (regularly $3.15). S’mores are meant to be shared – at this low price you can bring enough home for family and friends (bonfire optional).
