happy late birthday s'mores

Update: I made the cookies and can't stop eating them. They are really good!

Did you know there was a National S'mores day? Well there is and why not everything else has a day. The actual S'more Day was on August 10th but seeing as how I just found out about this awesome day I feel like there is still some time to celebrate!
I found it a little ironic that there is such a day because I have been having a craving (not a pregnant craving just my natural sweet tooth craving) this month for some gooey goodness in the form of a s'more. Sayward and I were actually just talking about it the other day how we definitely haven't had our fair share of s'mores this summer!

So in honor of s'mores here's some chocolate-marshmallow-graham cracker recipes to celebrate with. I think I'm going to make the s'more cookies tonight!
