Campfire or no campfire, s’mores are the ultimate summer snack.
You can make them in your kitchen, on the grill, or over the fire on your next camping trip. You can eat them the classic way (chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers) or get creative with some not-so-classic ingredients.
This summer, we’re challenging you to come up with the ultimate Canadian s’mores recipe as part of the Great Canadian Campout. Maybe you use maple cookies instead of graham crackers OR maybe you soak your marshmallows in maple syrup. Whatever your secret recipe is, enter it in the S’more Ways To Do It Challenge for a chance to become Canada’s King/Queen of S’mores! One lucky winner will get their photo and recipe featured in Canadian Wildlife Magazine for the whole country to enjoy.
If you need some inspiration to get you started, look no further. Here are six sumptuous s’mores recipes with a uniquely Canadian twist.
