When it comes to summertime camping, there's one thing you can't forget to bring: all the ingredients to make s'mores! Everybody loves s'mores, the traditional campfire treat consisting of a roasted marshmallow and a chocolate candy bar sandwiched between two graham crackers. Credit for inventing this delicacy goes to the Girl Scouts. The original s'mores recipe was introduced in the 1927 Girl Scout Handbook. The name “s'mores” came from the fact that they tasted so good—after eating one, everyone asked for "some more."
This delicious summertime treat is reason enough to start gathering kindling! However, if building a campfire isn't in your near future, you might want to try making these S'mores Bars that can be baked right in your own kitchen. And, you certainly don't need to be a Girl Scout to enjoy eating one!
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened (1 stick)
