RALEIGH, N.C. -

National S’mores Day is this weekend which is of course the perfect excuse to indulge in gooey s’mores. Our party planning expert Jennifer Durbin gives us some of her favorite s’mores recipes that include more than just the plain old graham cracker, marshmallow and chocolate.

S’mores Pudding Cup: A fun way to make a s’mores dessert without toasting a single marshmallow is by whipping up a s’mores pudding cup. In a clear cup layer graham cracker pieces, whipped topping, chocolate pudding and top with graham cracker crumbs and mini marshmallows. TIP: Serve your s’mores pudding cup in a wine glass for a fun and fancy sweet treat.

S’mores Munch: A fun s’mores munch is the perfect make ahead treat to serve on it’s own or mixed with popcorn. Simply spread two cups of cinnamon graham cereal on a lined baking sheet and cover with one cup mini marshmallows and one cup mini chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for five minutes or until chocolate chips begin to soften. Remove from oven and promptly toss the munch to cover all of the cereal and marshmallows with chocolate. Allow to cool and break into bite size pieces. TIP: S’mores munch can be stored in an airtight container for three to four days.

S’more Pretzels: Think s’mores are just for graham crackers? Think again! Instead of using graham crackers, put three mini marshmallows in-between two twisty pretzels and dip the pretzel marshmallow sandwich in chocolate. Allow the chocolate to cool and harden for a perfectly popable s’mores. TIP: I used gluten free pretzels to make the perfect gluten free s’mores!

S’mores Brownie Cup: A perfectly adorable way to serve s’mores is in a brownie cup. Simply mix your favorite brownie mix and bake in a mini muffin tin for two minutes less than directed so that your brownies are still gooey in the center. Remove the pan from the oven and immediately press 3 mini marshmallows in the center of each brownie cup and add a teddy graham cookie or graham cracker stick. TIP: These adorable s’mores brownie cups look just like a little teddy bear bubble bath and make the perfect dessert for your next baby shower or first birthday party.

S’mores To Go: Believe it or not, s’mores also make the perfect party favor and small gift. All you need is a cute bag or container that will fit a chocolate bar, graham crackers and a few marshmallows. You can even include a cute note with directions to toast the marshmallows on top of the graham crackers in the oven at 350 for five minutes then add the chocolate.
