At the moment, when spur-of-the-moment grocery shopping is not happening much, you might not have everything on hand for traditional S’mores. Here are a few things you can either add to your S’Mores or substitute for the other ingredients:
Cookies—If you’re out of graham crackers replace with cookie outsides.
Peanut Butter—add some to help keep everything stuck together. Or substitute for chocolate.
Waffles—Fresh or frozen, these are a fun treat when you don’t have graham crackers.
Nutella—Need we say more?
Banana Bread—A soft exterior to a S’More makes a much cleaner snack
Whipped Cream—Don’t have marshmallows? Whipped Cream works!
Ice Cream—Turns this into more of a sundae, but why not?!
Bananas and Peanut Butter—Who says you need chocolate?
Peeps—Got some hanging around still after Easter? Break ’em out for a colorful gooey treat!
