5 Ways to Add More to Your S’mores

What’s more iconic to eat around the campfire than the good ole’ fashion s’more? Camping offers us the opportunity to slow down and enjoy nature, all while indulging on delicious camping snacks. In celebration of National S’mores Day, pledge to camp as part of the National Wildlife Federation’s Great American Campout and take your s’more to the next level.

Here are 5 easy ways to spruce up your s’moregasbord:

Skip the simple chocolate and get adventurous! How about cookies and cream, white chocolate, mint chocolate, or your favorite candy bar?

Whether you like your snacks salty or sweet, there are tons of options for changing the outer shell. On the sweet side, try your favorite cookie. Chocolate chip, peanut butter, gingersnap and Girl Scout cookies were our favorites. To compliment the chocolate and marshmallow with something salty – try pretzels, or ritz crackers.
