S'mores Ideas To Try That Swap Out Graham Crackers For Options That Are Way More Delicious

Is it really summer if you aren't consuming a few, gooey s'mores? We think not — and neither do our friends at Spoon University. That's why they've come up with these genius s'mores ideas that will take your favorite fireside treat up to another level of greatness. Actually, make that two other levels of greatness. Graham crackers, marshmallows, and a big old slab of chocolate may be classic, but there are so many opportunities to play around with these sticky, delicious treats to turn them into something that is truly special. For a super sweet twist, smush those 'mallows between a few fluffy donuts. Trade your crackers for some cupcakes, and get creative with a package of Fudge Stripes. You're going to be so impressed.

Summer is finally here, and that means one thing: s’mores. There are so many variations of s’mores lately; the new s’mores Oreo flavor, the s’mores skillet and the s’mores Frappuccino. Yahoo even called s’mores the flavor of 2015.

So why not honor the year of the s’mores by trying out some even crazier inventions? We decided to ditch the graham crackers and replace them with cookies, Ritz crackers, and cupcakes. 10 out of 10 would recommend the s’mores donut.
