Round up the chocolate, graham crackers and marshmallows - it's nearly time for the Great American Backyard Campout.
The campout, a fundraiser for the nonprofit National Wildlife Federation, is Saturday and what better an excuse to indulge in s'mores and sleep out under the stars?
While there's nothing wrong with the old-fashioned s'mores of our youth, a quick spin around the Internet yielded some interesting recipes on the beloved, gooey treat.
An Epicurious.com recipe suggests subbing caramel or orange-filled chocolate bars for the Hershey's milk chocolate bar. Other recipes used the flavors behind s'mores to create cheesecake, ice cream sundaes and pie.
Food Network star Michael Chiarello riffed on the classic by creating an Italian s'more, a decadent dessert that features biscotti, roasted marshmallows and a cabernet sauvignon chocolate sauce. Click here to get the recipe.
