-- No one knows for sure who invented the tasty, gooey treat, but one thing is certain, S'mores are absolutely delicious. Many believe this campfire classic was created around 1927 by the same group of girls who brought us Thin Mints, Tagalongs, Do-Si-Dos and Samoas. Source

Read: S'mores, by Lisa Adams
-- Offering over 50 riffs on the theme, Adams adds everything from mangoes and cranberries to popcorn to the basic recipe, as well as more inventive fare such as a Boston Cream Pie S'more, made up of strawberry shortcake cups, a marshmallow, and chocolate frosting. Those with an aversion to graham crackers will find ideas incorporating everything from chocolate cookies to fresh apricots and even sliced Granny Smith apples to bookend their fillings. None of the recipes are going to win any culinary awards, but the recipes are simple to replicate, making them ideal for children and young-at-heart marshmallow lovers.

About Catherine: I have been writing frugal tips since 1982, when I was a young divorced mom of two - for my baby product company, Born to Love. I am now mom to three sons, who are all grown up, grandma to three - and happily re-married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and a cat, Bella.
