National S’mores Day

To celebrate National S’mores Day (every year on August 10th), my nephew and I made chocolate s’mores. Here are the pictures from our adventure:

Making the S’Mores.

After they came out of the oven.

A very happy nephew of mine.

We thought the s’more made a funny face shape.

Special thanks to Foodimentary for notifying me about this occasion and for teaching me that the 1st recorded version was in 1929 in a Girl Scouts’ Field Manual.
