Did you know that August 10 is National S’mores Day? (Yes, there must be a national holiday for everything.) As if we really needed a reason to indulge in the marshmallow goodness.

While we were photographing kid foodie reviews for Baltimore Restaurant Week a few weeks ago, one of the fathers at the photoshoot mentioned he had coordinated a “Dad and Me” S’mores night for his community. A night for kids and dads to get out and have fun together. But, he mentioned, they really had to up their s’mores game. They had spreads of all sorts of toppings. Everyone really got into, he said.

Up the s’mores game? Can you really go beyond the traditional chocolate-marshmallow-gram variety?Strawberry Lemonade S'mores - (cool) progeny

The answer is “yes.” These strawberry lemonade s’mores are a perfect mix of tart and sweetness. Make your own lemon curd or buy pre-made for an easy sweet treat.  You can of course toast the marshmallows over a campfire, but our recipe uses a toaster oven for convenience. 

What’s your favorite non-traditional s’more?
