Memorial Day Treats: S'mores!

For many, Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start to summer, and if you’re old-school like me, the beginning of white shoe season. 

Along with the Memorial Day picnics, BBQs and family gatherings, it's also a time of remembrance and reflection of what our armed forces do for our great country. I would like to express my sincere appreciation and respect to the men and women in uniform and their families for their sacrifice and dedication.

One of my favorite Memorial Day activities is making s'mores! Gooey, chocolatey, and crunchy all at the same time-yum! Why not try to sophisticate the tradition a bit by hosting you very own DIY s'mores party to kick off the summer festivities? 

Even without a bonfire present, you can still enjoy the summer-is-almost-here excitement with a s'mores party!

While I love the traditional graham cracker s'mores, everyone goes crazy for s'mores with a twist like the ones we made with Pepperidge Farm Brussels cookies, Reese's Peanut Butter cups and marshmallows.

Here's what we put on our S'mores Bar (but you can purchase your favorite cookies and candy):

  • Marshmallows
  • Graham Crackers
  • Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bars
  • Hershey's white Chocolate Bars
  • Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
  • Pepperidge Farm Brussels Cookies
  • Fudge Stripe Cookies

Are you excited about Memorial Day? Seeing all of these awesome dessert ideas is really revving me up. I can’t believe the summer kick-off is already here! Hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day!
