If you're like us, you're looking for ways to make this summer feel as normal as possible, as safely as possible. One of the best ways we know how to do that is by indulging in quintessentially summery treats, and National S'mores Day on Monday, August 10 provides us with a particularly special occasion to do just that. Below, we've rounded up all the places to get your fix of that sought-after mix of graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows, whether it's sundaes, cookies, or the classic, unadulterated version.
Note that S'mores Day is on a Monday this year, and some included restaurants are closed on Mondays.
“Mackles’more” at Hello Robin
Capitol Hill’s Hello Robin features the “Mackles'more” regularly—it’s a s'mores cookie with Theo chocolate chunks, and yes, it’s named after that Macklemore (also reportedly a Capitol Hill resident). Their takeout window is open daily.
S’mores Molten Cake Packs at Hot Cakes Molten Chocolate Cakery
Whether you're at home or on the trail, Hot Cakes' s'mores molten take & bake cakes, made with smoked chocolate cake batter with a homemade marshmallow in the center and homemade graham crumbs on top, are a decidedly gooier (and more portable) version of the classic campfire treat. Plus, 5% of sales will benefit wilderness preservation efforts in Washington State. Get a four- or six-pack in-store or online.
