Happy National S'mores Day! 10 S'mores Recipes That Are Nothing Short Of Drool-Worthy, So You Can Celebrate Right

Happy National S'mores Day! You might think there's nothing on this gorgeous planet more delicious than a crisp, gooey s'more in its natural state — and you'd be kinda wrong. There are many different s'mores recipes and variations to be had outside of the typical graham cracker, marshmallow, and Hershey's chocolate recipe formula, and with this heavenly holiday upon us, you might as well try some new recipes. In fact, the stranger the added ingredients, the more impressive and yummy are the s'mores themselves. Because really, how could you screw up the powerful trio of a s'more? I'm pretty sure you could add anything edible, and there would be someone somewhere who would go gaga for it.

Summer is coming to an end soon (holding back tears), so you should really take advantage of this fantastic warm weather treat while you still can. Since s'mores are quite simple with their minimal ingredients and extreme flavor, it's easy to add a little something extra to improve the overall taste factor by a million. Whether you go with a dash of cinnamon or three slabs of bacon, you're making the right choice. So in honor of National S'mores Day, here are some wacky and wonderful s'mores you've probably never seen.

These little treats by Half Baked Harvest are essentially dessert pies that you can cook on the grill. Ben Wyatt would LOSE. HIS. SH*T.

9. Matcha Red Bean S'mores

Matcha green tea and red beans on graham crackers? It doesn't sound like it would work. But it does. It definitely does.
