The cookies are a variation of the traditional campfire snack consisting of a roasted marshmallow and layer of chocolate sandwiched between two pieces of graham cracker. The cookies use graham-flavored cereal as the base, combined with melted miniature marshmallows and melted chocolate chips to hold them together.
The name “s’mores” is a contraction of “some more” (that is, tasting so good that people always want “some more”), a term which is credited to a 1927 Girl Scouts publication.
