    First you’ll need some graham crackers…

    Honey Maid Graham Crackers are a fan favorite. There original flavor is great, but to add a little extra something to your s’more you might want to try their cinnamon or chocolate flavors! They are sturdy enough to hold a jammed pack s’more!

    For a spin on graham crackers…

    If you want to step away from the traditional s’more try using Tate’s Cookies as a substitute for graham crackers. These cookies are delicious (especially their chocolate chip ones). For a little zest try the butterscotch pecan or oatmeal raisin. Who says that you always have to play by the rules?

    Next you’ll want to get a few marshmallows…

    Baked offers handmade marshmallows that melt perfectly in a s’mores filling. The soft and appealing marshmallows are made in this Brooklyn Kitchen. They come in two flavors, vanilla and chocolate.
