With their warm, melted chocolatey goodness, s’mores are a summer staple. There’s nothing quite like gathering around a campfire and roasting marshmallows while sharing stories with family and friends. Once that marshmallow is sandwiched with chocolate pieces between two crispy graham crackers, you’re on your way to absolute bliss with that indulgent first bite. S’mores are such a beloved sweet treat here in America that they have a whole day dedicated to singing their praises.
