There’s just nothing else like Fall in the Smoky Mountains. It’s by far our favorite season here at Camp Riverslanding, and we love it more than anything when families come to join us to witness the World-renowned beauty of Autumn in Pigeon Forge! There are quite a few things about Fall that we love, but one of the greatest Fall camping traditions is that of making s’mores at night by the campfire. We thought you might enjoy this list of new ideas to make your s’mores a little more interesting*:
Pumpkin Spice S’mores:
Since it’s in everything else these days, why not add a little pumpkin spice to your s’mores? You’ll need the classic milk chocolate and cinnamon graham crackers, but switch out your regular roasted marshmallows for pumpkin spice flavored ones. Not a pumpkin spice fan? Try strawberry flavored marshmallows instead!
Peanut Butter Cookie S’mores:
This one is super simple – just swap out the graham crackers for peanut butter cookies and pile on the roasted marshmallow and chocolate to your heart’s content.
Roasted Marshmallow Strawberries:
Ok, Ok, this one isn’t “technically” a s’more, but we just had to include it in this list of delicious campfire treats. Skewer fresh strawberries, dip each one in marshmallow fluff, and toast them over the fire to get that toasty-marshmallow finish on the marshmallow fluff. SO yummy.
Waffle Cone S’mores:
Ditch the graham crackers and fill up a waffle cone with mini marshmallows and chocolate, then wrap the whole thing in aluminum foil and let it roast on a camp grill until the marshmallows are melted. Remove from grill, unwrap, and enjoy (without getting your fingers quite so sticky!)
Imagine it – The traditional s’more. You know the drill – graham cracker, roasted marshmallow, perfectly melted chocolate but then you add one more thing. Berries! Give your s’more a little bit of tartness with raspberries, blueberries, or strawberries. It’s a bit of a balancing act, but totally worth it for such a glorious flavor combination.
