National S’more’s Day is celebrated every year on August 10, but there are plenty of options to enjoy the summer treat all year long. While it may feel like you could simply set some chocolate and a marshmallow out in the hot Texas sun and a S’more would appear, we all know that’s not the proper way to make the tasty treat.

You can obviously make your own at home indoors or over the backyard fire pit. And when you do, we suggest picking up some local chocolate at Lammes Candies, Chocolaterie Tessa, or Delysia Chocolatier. The latter makes marshmallows, too!
Be sure to pair those homemade S’mores with coffee from a local roaster like Third Coast or Cuvee. Or, if you’re looking for something stronger, swing by Whichcraft Tap Room and pick up one of the many local brews they have in stock.
Don’t want to deal with a fire at all? We found the best ways to enjoy S’mores in the ATX without having to do any of the dirty work.
Chomp on a churro tossed in graham cracker sugar, topped with Mexican chocolate sauce, whipped cream and torched marshmallows to get that campfire feel without having to get that smoke smell in your clothes and hair.
In addition to the S’mores pie with chocolate, house marshmallow, and graham cracker crust, you can also try an Elvis, which contains a layer of chocolate topped with peanut butter cheesecake with bananas.
