As much as I like to camp out and have fun in the woods, I just never really caught what was the deal with s'mores.

I love s'mores. I always think of the sandlot reference too when the classic, "you're killing me smalls" line makes its appearance. And actually I have tried to make s'mores in a microwave, because fires are not always readily accessible and it did not turn out so bad..just something to keep in mind if you are in dire need of one!

Another theory is that the dessert is so sticky, particularly due to the combination of melted chocolate and marshmallow, that it is especially difficult to talk or swallow, and this remains the case for some time even after the entire dessert is eaten. Therefore, if someone who has finished swallowing their last piece of the dessert is asked if they'd like another, "s'more please" would be all they could manage to relay.

While the origin of this popular campfire dessert is unclear, the first recorded version of the recipe can be found in the Girl Scout Handbook of 1927. The recipe is credited to ...
