The Ultimate S’mores Generator

A simple calculus of outside thing + oozing thing + fun filling, with big potential to get weird

The s’more is a time-honored American tradition, rooted in the simple thrill of putting ingredients on a stick, thrusting it into a fire, and watching the mass slowly burn. The s’more itself is a frankly perfect calculus of crunch (the exterior graham crackers, salty-sweet and lightly spiced), melt (an iconic square of milk chocolate, tantalizingly liquified before your eyes), and ooze (a fire-kissed marshmallow that exists in the liminal space between solid and liquid). And while it might seem unnecessary to mess with a classic, a blowout camping trip means experimenting a little: Why not position mochi on your roasting stick, or sub the plain chocolate with dried fruit, or amp up the marshmallow with — if they’ve been languishing at the back of your cupboard since Easter — a Peep?

To get those creative juices flowing, enter Eater’s Ultimate S’mores Generator. Admittedly some of these combinations, which feature both sweet and savory ingredients, might feel off-kilter when combined. But what’s life without a little risk? Bring on the cooked bacon and Doritos.
