There is always s’more than one way

In celebration of National S’more Day, we’re honoring the history of the snack and inviting Girl Scouts to put their own twist on the tradition. The only way to properly celebrate this day is with a delicious s’more snack. Let us know what kind of treat you come up with.

A piece of Girl Scout history:

The first-ever recipe for the classic fireside treat can be traced back to a publication from 1927 titled “Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts.” Filled with tips for Girl Scouts to enjoy a nature hike, the book quietly holds the recipe for “Some More” in its 118 pages—just below how to perfectly roast an apple.

Twisting tradition

Girl Scouts always honor tradition, but they are innovators too. While the historical, gooey s’more is delicious, we asked our Girl Scouts what they have tried to add a new twist to the old s’more. Here are a few of their suggestions for substitutes of the three, time-tested ingredients. Mix and match to create the next world-famous dessert!
