The Graham Cracker Swap For A Toastier S'mores Experience

It can be a hassle to remember all of the ingredients you will need when planning which meals you'll cook over the campfire during your weekend adventures. Figuring out how to double up and make food interesting while keeping bags light can be a valuable yet overlooked skill for many outdoor enthusiasts. While packing bags of marshmallows is usually a given, stashing boxes of graham crackers can be a trickier task to manage. The fragile crackers can be easily damaged, and you're left to open a bag of disappointing crumbs when you had your heart set on the taste of sweet, chocolatey s'mores and spoonfuls of peanut butter

If you love smashing roasted marshmallows between graham cracker cookies, we have another recipe for you to try. Consider packing cinnamon swirl or raisin bread instead. Not only are the pieces easy to transport, but slices of warm bread can also serve as a delicious breakfast treat, and you'll be turning your usual s'mores recipe into a chewy, gooey sandwich that is easy to bite into and carry from one campsite to the next.

Making the taste of s'mores accessible

If you've tried adding bacon and tahini spread to your s'mores for a new take on the classic treat, try using pieces of cinnamon swirl or raisin bread toast to layer toasted marshmallows, chocolate, and your other favorite ingredients. Whether you're at home in your backyard or sitting next to your tent in a remote forest, using sweet breads to sandwich your favorite s'mores toppings can help create delicious treats, snacks, and meals that can be easily prepared and shared. 

Coat the slices of bread in butter before toasting, and once each piece is perfectly golden, let yourself go wild with toppings. Peanut butter, shredded coconut, and slices of banana can easily be set on top of a warm slice. For younger eaters, different toppings can be set out for make-your-own treats, and campers of all ages can enjoy decorating their bread slices with chocolate chips, marshmallows, cinnamon sprinkles, and drizzles of honey, chocolate, or caramel sauce. Want less hassle? Toast the slices in advance and wrap pre-made sandwiches to pack in your bag, then enjoy when hunger sets in.
