Everyone knows the simple recipe of a delicious campfire classic: s'mores. To make a classic s'more: grab chocolate squares, graham crackers, and marshmallows and you're ready for a fun night around the campfire or fire pit.

Sometimes, however, it's nice to throw in a twist on a classic recipe, and surprise your family or guests with a unique take on a well-known favorite.

Next time you want to make s'mores, use these fire starters to get your campfire or fire pit ready, and try some of these delicious recipes that bring new life to a classic:

Salty Caramel Bacon S'mores

  • graham crackers
  • salted caramel chocolate
  • marshmallows
  • bacon

Delicious in an unexpected way!

Strawberry Banana S'mores

Throw some fruit into the mix with sliced strawberries and bananas in your classic s'mores setup. This gives the s'mores a bright, vibrant taste of strawberries with the mellow taste of bananas. Plus, fruits are considered a health food, so you can have these s'mores without the guilt! Just grab:

  • marshmallows
  • sliced strawberries

Chocolate Chip Cookie Nutella S'mores

Replace your s'mores graham cracker base with chocolate chip cookies and you're already on your way to a new flavor profile. Swap chocolate for Nutella and you've got a great new recipe. For this recipe all you need is:

  • chocolate chip cookies (homemade or store-bought)
