There’s nothing wrong with the graham cracker-marshmallow-chocolate campfire classic, but sometimes you just have to change things up a bit. We’ve reinvented everyone’s favorite summertime treat three different ways– just in time for National S’mores Day!
The Big Chipper
Top a potato chip (go for large, flat, sturdy chips) with a square of dark chocolate. Set it near the fire so the chocolate can soften while you roast a marshmallow Top with the roasted marshmallow, then another chip.
Strawberry S’mores Cake
Split a store-bought biscuit. Top the bottom with sliced strawberries and a few squares of chocolate. Add 2 roasted marshmallows and the biscuit top.
Banana Split Sandwich
Spread a waffle cookie or pizzelle with strawberry jam; top with sliced bananas. Spread another cookie with chocolate-hazelnut spread. Sandwich the cookies with 2 roasted marshmallows.

These four recipes are a lighter version of this Italian staple. They don’t compromise on flavor, but you’ll still feel like you can run after the ice cream truck afterwards.
