S’mores—everyone loves this nostalgic treat, and so do we! What started as three simple ingredients for a campfire snack has now erupted into a trendy flavor found in all sorts of things like cereal, granola bars, trifles, and ice cream. It’s even been an Oreo cookie flavor! At DLM, you can swing by our Coffee Bar and take a sip of our new S’more Latte, complete with a graham-encrusted marshmallow.
This trend got its start in 1927 with a Girl Scout guidebook Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts. The recipe name was “Some More” and it wasn’t until the ’70s, when it was shortened to “s’more,” that it really took flight. As a former Girl Scout, I’m proud that the organization is credited with such a memorable flavor. As a chef, I’m excited to add a gourmet twist to this familiar favorite and I’d encourage you to do the same. Start by exploring the Chocolate Wall at DLM where you can find 30+ chocolate varieties. Also, check out Smashmallow, a line of specialty marshmallows in unique flavors like pumpkin and cookie dough. So gather around the bonfire and toast up some s’mores galore with your own creation or try these 5 gourmet ideas below!
1. COOKIE DOUGH S’MORE
Combine classic favorites by switching out the graham crackers for Tate’s Bake Shop Chocolate Chip Cookies and cut thin layers of DLM’s new edible cookie dough to sandwich a torched marshmallow.
2. PB & GRAHAM S’MORE
Take two DLM Milk Chocolate Grahams and spread DLM Creamy Organic Peanut Butter on both inside surfaces. Place a toasted marshmallow in between.
3. BLACK & WHITE S’MORE
Give this fireside favorite a whole new twist with fresh blackberries, creamy Olive & Sinclair Southern Artisan Buttermilk White Chocolate, and a toasted marshmallow between graham crackers.
4. BANANA NUTELLA S’MORE
Nutella fans, have no fear! Spread a graham cracker thick with Nutella and then layer on sliced banana and a toasted marshmallow before capping it with another graham cracker.
5. RICE KRISPY S’MORE
Split our Bakery’s Krispy Rice Treat and sandwich a DLM Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Graham inside. Then, torch the top piece to unleash that toasty marshmallow taste.
