Today -- August 10, 2011 -- is a very important day.
That's because it's National S'more Day!
And who doesn't love a gooey, messy, melty dessert sandwich? Not to mention the fun memories made roasting marshmallows around the fire on a summer night.
While there's nothing wrong with the traditional method -- stabbing a marshmallow onto a stick and either watching it turn toasty golden brown or flame out to a blackened crisp, then tucking it between layers of chocolate bar and graham cracker -- there are other options.
For those of you needing a gluten-free alternative, here's a link to a delicious recipe from Foodista: http://bit.ly/oyOIVT
And if you're diabetic, there's this version (the Smunchie) from our own Beth Morrow: http://www.northstarpubs.com/articles/cb/a-recipe-for-camp-tradition
And for those among you who just can't deal with the mess -- or need to mass produce your sugar rush -- there's this contraption: http://bit.ly/oTQ2IB
However you prefer your s'more, don't let this special holiday go by without a treat!
