What is the secret to some of the most beloved recipes? Simplicity, and nothing is as simple as a s'more. There is something about that gooey, sticky, get it all over the face mess that keeps us going back for more. Nobody is quite sure where the s'more
originated. We do know it started around the mass production of marshmallows. Some assume that campers invented it due to the favorite campfire technique of toasting our fluffy friends. The first official recipe was published in 1927 in the Girl Scout Handbook.
However it arrived, I am paying homage to this wonderful concoction.
Why am I posting a blog on S'mores when it is not August 10th (National S'more Day)? I am posting now because it has become a signature snack produced by The Invisible Chef at Cape Fear Botanical Garden in Fayetteville, NC for their annual Holiday Lights
show. The first night they brought them to the Garden they were sold out in just a couple hours. Mostly bought by staff who would come back for seconds and (this might have been myself) thirds, I now look forward to working Holiday Lights not only for the
entertainment and lights, but also for this fantabulous and simple s'more. What is your favorite, tasty and simple treat?
