Because, really, what’s better than chocolate with marshmallows?
National S’mores Day is August 10 and what better way to celebrate than to check out some local riffs on this favorite chocolate-marshmallow snack?
Shake Things Up
At Madison Kitchen in Larchmont, twists on s’mores are all over the dessert menu. Start with the over-the-top Italian Campfire Milkshake, smooth Bona Bona Nutella-s’mores ice cream, served in a Nutella-rimmed glass with whipped cream and salted-graham-cracker crumble. Or order any flavor as a Bona-style cone, topped with torched homemade Italian meringue.

S’mores Nutella Pizza, Need We Say More?
At Mount Kisco’s Exit 4 Food Hall, swap tomato sauce for Nutella and cheese for fluffy marshmallow, and you’ll get the food hall’s popular dessert pizza. This Instagram-worthy dessert is baked in a wood-fired oven and topped with powdered sugar. Perfect for sharing, but you might not want to.

Try a Grown Up Take on the Campfire Classic
This ain’t your childhood s’mores. At UnWined, Somers’ newest wine bar, you’ll find a mature twist on the treat: a graham-cracker tart with chocolate ganache and housemade marshmallow brûlée. Owner Stephanie Small says it’s their most popular dessert and is in keeping with “our idea of having classic foods on our menu but adding a signature twist.”

Make It a Double Scoop, Please
Known for its small batch, premium ice cream, Longford’s in Rye serves up this chocolate ice cream studded with graham crackers, marshmallows, and (more chocolate!) chocolate chips.
Once all the meat is gone, move on to desserts! Gotta love the s'mores. . . . . . #foodbeast#foodie #eatersanonymous #myfab5#eaterla #eatfamous #EEEEEATS#infatuationLA #dailyfoodfeed #eater#losangeles#lagram #zagat #laeats #dinela#eatnowplaylater #foodforfoodies#instafood #feedfeed #infatuationLA#forkinfood #foodgawker #eatfamous#foodwinewomen #eatingla#foodporn #eatersanonymous#abc7eyewitness#gyukaku#yakiniku
Roast Your Own
Sometimes the hands-on experience of turning marshmallows over the fire until they’re perfectly golden brown, is the best part. Stop short of starting a fire pit in your backyard and head over to the White Plains’ Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ for the real deal. Diners cook their own meats and seafood at this Asian barbecue joint — but the s’mores is a crowd favorite.
