S’mores history

Exactly how did the classic recipe of graham crackers, marshmallow and chocolate come to be?

According to the Cooking Channel, no one really knows who invented the s’more recipe but the Girl Scouts have the claim to fame for being the first to publish the classic dessert recipe.

The Cooking Channel reports that by the early 1900s, marshmallow roasts were a summer fad. Then, in 1927, a recipe by the name of “Some Mores” had appeared in a book called “Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts.” The recipe became a favorite among Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts — and eventually everyone else too.

It wasn’t until the 1970s that the name of “Some Mores” had been adapted to what we now know as “s’mores.”
