Maybe it’s turning into fall where you live, but in my neck of the woods it’s going to be in the triple digits this weekend. I always think of scorching temperatures as an excuse to indulge in s’mores, and even though s’mores are supposed to be a Labor Day tradition, I just don’t think I want to wait another week! So I’ve rounded up 6 unusual s’mores recipes to help us all appreciate the dog days of summer.
Dark Chocolate Fresh Berry S’mores
Sometime the simplest ideas are the tastiest. These Dark Chocolate Fresh Berry S’mores from Joy Food Sunshine take advantage of summer fruit, sneak a little nutritional value into your dessert, and happen to be delicious. A bonus variation: use jam instead of fresh berries.
Peppermint Patty S’mores
Traditional s’mores are perfect as they are, but wouldn’t they be even more perfect with a hint of mint? Creative Mamas has us covered with Peppermint Patty S’mores. Just replace the chocolate with York Peppermint Patties!
If you like a little salt with your sweet, these Pretzel S’mores from Teacher by Day, Chef by Night are for you. Put aside the graham crackers and use pretzels for a little added crunch.
Bacon makes everything better, right? So of course you’d want to sandwich a little cured meat between your chocolate and marshmallow. I haven’t tried it yet, but I can only assume it’s delicious because, well, bacon.
Salted Caramel S’mores
My daughter adores salted caramel so we’ll definitely be trying this decadent spin on s’mores from Flying on Jess Fuel. These are instructions for indoor s’mores, but it would be easy enough to adapt them to the outdoor variety.
Lemon Meringue Pie S’mores
If you’re not a chocolate lover (I’ve heard such people exist) then you’ll definitely want to get your hands on these Lemon Meringue Pie S’mores from Make Life Lovely. Lemon curd combined with roasted marshmallows perfectly mimics the flavor of a lemon meringue pie.
