S’mores evoke feelings of family, friends, cool fall nights, stories by the campfire, simpler times, and a sprinkle of childhood innocence. And however you eat them: extra-browned marshmallows, open-faced or with 2 graham crackers, or melted chocolate – who doesn’t love this simple, sweet treat?!

Tomorrow (August 10) is National S’mores Day, and we’re gearing up by giving you some decadent s’mores-inspired recipes to try. Whether you’re at home or in one of our cozy cabins, these are great spins on the classic treat.

Waffle S’mores | delish.com | 4 servings
We can’t think of a better way to start National S’mores Day.
1. Preheat Belgian waffle maker to hot setting.
2. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt ½ cup chocolate chips with 1 teaspoon vegetable oil. Microwave in 15- to 30-second intervals until melted. Stir together and add a bit more oil if chocolate isn’t thin enough to drizzle. Set aside.
3. In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients. Add in milk, egg, and vanilla, and whisk well. Whisk in remaining oil, then add in remaining chocolate chips. Add butter to waffle iron, then depending on size of waffle iron, scoop batter onto hot iron in ½ cup increments.
4. Once waffle is deep golden brown (while waffle is still on iron), add ¼ cup marshmallows on top of one waffle section. Place another waffle on top of marshmallows, making a sandwich. (If your waffle iron is small, fold waffle in half over marshmallows to make sandwich.) Close waffle iron for 30 seconds to melt marshmallows.
5. Remove waffles to a plate and drizzle with chocolate.
