We know, we know: summer is over and school is back in session. But who said there still aren’t a few ways to enjoy the last few weeks of warm weather in outdoors at night? Our staff at each of our restaurants love to lit up the outside firepits and enjoy a good bonfire to welcome the changing of the seasons! But what bonfire is complete without a round of old-fashioned s’mores?! If you’re looking for a grown-up version of this delicious treat, try one of the easy to make versions our chefs recommend at home!
Switch it up a bit! Try coconut shavings and caramel atop a toasted marshmallow on a graham cracker. Delish!
This classic dessert doesn’t just have to be served as ice cream! Use strawberries, nuts, bananas, chocolate with a toasted marshmallow on a graham cracker.
Peanut Butter & Chocolate S’mores
If you’re tired of graham crackers on your s’mores, this version might be the one for you! Try using bittersweet chocolate cookies instead and spread peanut butter in the middle with a toasted marshmallow. Totally worth the try, especially if you consider yourself a peanut butter lover!
Lemon Meringue Pie
Not much of a chocolate lover? No problem! Just spread homemade or store bought lemon curd atop the bottom graham cracker and finish it off with a lightly toasted marshmallow and graham cracker on top. This one is to die for!
Who doesn’t love the rich taste of this delicious hazelnut spread? Upgrade your s’mores by simply switching out the bar of chocolate and spreading a generous amount of Nutella on the bottom graham cracker, and then topping it with a toasted marshmallow and graham cracker. You might not ever eat a traditional s’more again!
Enjoying a small fire with family and friends (and delicious s’mores!) is an excellent way to ring in the fall season. Be sure to join us one evening at Liberty House, Stone House and The Ryland Inn and let us serve you as you enjoy a relaxing night outside by our firepits!
