Get ready for chocolate overload with this Death by S’mores recipe. We made it in an Dutch oven while camping, but it can be made at home.
Why are S’mores called S’mores?
Have you ever wondered why s’mores are so popular? Obviously, it is the taste! All that gooey chocolate and marshmallow between two graham crackers. It is the ultimate camping dessert sandwich. Our most popular post on this blog is our Campfire S’mores Nachos recipe. This video of it has shared on Facebook over a million times.
Where did s’more originate? Nobody knows who initially invented them, but they first appeared in print in a Girl Scout publication in 1927. That credit goes to Loretta Scott Crew, who made ‘some mores’ by the campfire. Somewhere along the way, it got shortened to s’ mores. When you see the name of our blog, you know we love that play on words!
Death by S’mores Recipe
Since not everybody can seem to get enough s’mores, we have a brand new recipe for you. We made it last month at a campout, where our camping friend Sarah dubbed it Death by S’mores.
Of course, this recipe includes the classic s’more ingredients. We preferred to use semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of chocolate bars. Get the ingredient list and directions at the bottom of this post.
When I came up with this recipe, I thought it was going to be a s’mores dump cake in the Dutch oven. It turned out more of the consistency of cookie dough, so we are not calling it a cake at all. It might be a different texture depending on the preparation method. We will test this recipe out in our oven at home soon. Whatever the consistency or name, you are just going to want to eat some more of it.
Try the recipe below and let us know what you think. We would love you to share your photo of it on our Facebook page or on this pin on Pinterest.
