Girl Scouts celebrate National S'mores Day
The Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council, along with scouts all over the country, will be celebrating National S'mores Day on Aug. 10 with a variety of unconventional s'mores recipes.
Girl Scouts are not the official founders of s'mores but they have long been makers of the snack during their campfire traditions. Since the early 1920s, Girl Scouts have been using the traditional recipe for s'mores, which calls for marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers.
The recipe was printed for the first time in the 1927 Girl Scout Handbook, according to a press release.
Now, with the advent of social networking and sites like Pinterest, Girl Scouts are creating unique versions of s'mores using shared recipes from all over the world.
More than 3.2 million girls and adults are a part of Girl Scouts of the USA, which builds girls of courage, confidence and character.
The Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council is the second-largest Girl Scout council in the country with more than 70,000 girls and 19,000 adults in 25 southeast Texas counties.
