Original Girl Scout S'more Recipe from 1927: Some More

Girl Scouts live at our house. Therefore, we know all about s'mores. What are s'mores? A melted chocolatey-marshmallowey confection housed between two layers of graham crackers. That's how we serve them, anyway. But is that the 'original' way to make and serve s'mores? The first published recipe was from a 1927 Girl Scout guide Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts, published by Girl Scouts, Incorporated.

"Some More"
  • 8 Sticks
  • 16 graham crackers
  • 8 bars plain chocolate (any of the good plain brands broken in two)
  • 16 marshmallows
Toast the marsmallows over the coals to a crisp gooey state and then put them inside a graham cracker and chocolate bar sandwich. The heat of the marshmallow between the halves of the chocolate bar will melt the chocolate a bit. Though it tastes like "some more" one is really enough.

And yes, just one of these is enough for me, although the kids could stuff themselves with these treats.
