After the success of our recent blog about Colorado’s savory and interesting insight, and in honor of today being National Graham Cracker Day, here we go with another savory blog post.
First, we did a little surfing online. Then, since graham crackers are an essential ingredient in s’mores, we tested some recipes (it’s a tough job but someone has to do it!).
We knew they got the name from everyone wanting “some more” but we didn’t know this. No one really knows who ‘discovered’ this delicious fireside snack. This article says that “the first published recipe for “some mores” was in a 1927 publication called Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts. Loretta Scott Crew, who made them for Girl Scouts by the campfire, is given credit for the recipe.” Well, to whomever … THANK YOU for creating it!
WOW, we saw so many recipes! Some go so far as to add peanut butter, roasted berries, salted caramel, chocolate chips, and much more, as you can see in this article.
The end result, after several finger-licking tests? Since we’re fairly modern thinkers, and each recipe was rather scrumptious, it surprised even us that tradition wins!
Grab the graham cracker, place a piece of the Hershey’s bar on top, roast the marshmallow over a campfire to your desired doneness, and then put it on top of the chocolate. Complete it with another graham cracker and savor!
These recipes offered a variety of cooking methods for you. Still, of all of the cooking methods, you can bet that we believe most in any that includes a campfire at a campground … under the stars … in Colorado!
Our Find a Campground page makes it easier to narrow the list of campground to those which best suit your preferences.
