Proof that there’s no wrong way to make S’mores, because it’s S’mores Day!

Guess what? It’s National S’mores Day!

When grocery stores start lining up displays of marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate bars, my heart goes pitter pat. It’s officially s’mores season, folks, so let’s get down to business. Do you go with the classic roasting of your ‘mallow on a stick til it’s burnt to a crisp? Or are you one of those people who slowly rotates it above the fire until it’s the perfect shade of golden brown goodness? Truth: there’s no wrong way to make delicious s’mores sandwich—even if it’s not exactly in sandwich form.

These days, s’mores have gotten some serious makeovers. If you’re ready to take your mallow-making to the next level, the Internet has provided us with some creative, drool-worthy options. Here’s a roundup of the most innovative, non-traditional recipes from food blog heaven:

A cool s’mores refresher cake for those hot summer days will really hit the spot.

S’mores Cheese Ball

This is not only also a no-bake recipe, but is a spreadable s’mores delight.

And when all else fails, remember your roots and Ham Porter’s wisdom from The Sandlot“First you take the graham, you stick the chocolate on the graham. Then you roast the ‘mallow. When the ‘mallows flaming. . . you stick it on the chocolate. Then cover with the other end. Then you scarf.”
