The History of S’mores

The first published S’more recipe dates back to 1927, when the dessert appeared in a Girl Scout cookbook.  Originally called “Some More,” the name appears to have morphed into “S’more” sometime in the early 1970s.


Top S’more Hacks

We look forward to welcoming you to Monarch Beach Resort for the S’mores experience and in the meantime, try these DIY tips at home.


Melt the Chocolate

  • Tuck a square of chocolate into the marshmallow, then roast it to a golden brown
  • While you’re roasting the marshmallow, place the graham cracker & chocolate square on a small block of wood to the side of your campfire until slightly warm


Elevate your ingredients

  • Substitute a square of Ghiradelli dark chocolate with peppermint for extra zip
  • Spread your graham cracker with almond butter or Nutella


Throw it all in

  • Place chocolate chips and mini marshmallows in a sugar cone, wrap in foil, & throw on the campfire until warm
  • Wrap a banana, dark chocolate chunks, marshmallows & crumbled graham crackers or pretzels in foil & place on the campfire until warm
