HOUSTON — After more than 100 years, it’s no secret that the Girl Scouts have perfected the art of making s’mores.

From summer nights under starry skies to roasting marshmallows in the microwave, the s’mores recipe has come a long way since it was first documented in the 1927 Girl Scout Handbook.

As a toast to this tasty treat, Girl Scouts everywhere will celebrate National S’mores Day on Sunday.

Although the original graham cracker-chocolate-marshmallow layered method will forever be a classic, the Girl Scouts of San Jacinto is sharing unconventional s’mores to mirror the imaginative girls of today.

Try this alternative twist on the typical s’mores that you can enjoy inside or out.


Indoor S’mores


1 cup chocolate chips

8 large marshmallows

graham crackers for dipping

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

In a cast iron skillet, add the chocolate chips. Snip the large marshmallows in half and top the chocolate chips with them. You could also use a scoop of mini marshmallows instead.

Once the oven is heated, add the skillet to the oven. Bake for 7-9 minutes or until the marshmallows turn golden brown.

Serve with graham crackers for scooping.
