Traditional s'mores have been a favorite treat of mine since I was in Brownies. For me (and many others) they conjure up sweet memories of camping with my family as a little girl, and then camping with my husband and our own children and grandchildren, with more memories in the making.
With such popularity, it's fitting that the classic campfire treat has its own national day of recognition...
Yesterday (oops!) was National S'mores Day, but we all know that s'mores can be enjoyed every day:) In fact, if you have the new book, The S'mores Cookbook* by Susan Whetzel, you will instantly have enough s'mores recipes to try a different one each day for about sixty days! How does that sound? Fabulous? Yeah, that's what I thought you'd say.
If you are familiar with Susan and her popular blog (Doughmesstic), you won't be surprised to know that the only problem I had with this book was deciding which recipe to try first!
I opted to go for these yummy S'mores Toaster Pastries, which were a snap to throw together and turned out golden brown and delicious! Wise choice on my part.
I melted some of the chocolate chips in the microwave and drizzled it all over the "fresh from the oven", warm pastries and then topped them with graham cracker crumbs. Oh my.
I knew these were going to be good, but the pie crust filled with the chocolate, marshmallow, graham cracker combination exceeded my expectations. The s'mores toatser pastries were simply scrumptious! I can't wait to try the next recipe...
