If there’s one thing HuffPost Taste editors know about our readers, it’s that you’re kind of obsessed with s’mores. You’re willing to go to ridiculous lengths to make them, you’ll eat the graham/chocolate/marshmallow flavor combination in just about any form, and you almost broke the Internet when we wrote about a s’mores-stuffed chocolate chip cookie. Because of all this, we decided to give you a gift. The gift of more s’mores.
We’ve eaten them at bonfires, campfires, in kitchens perched over gas stoves, and in our sad little living rooms with the aid of a microwave, but for all the hundreds of s’mores we’ve consumed in our lives, no one has ever made us one with anything but the classic milk chocolate Hershey’s bar. Don’t get us wrong, it’s the perfectly engineered chocolate bar for a s’more. But we started to wonder: Are we missing out on something great?
First we wondered what a s’more would be like with a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup inside it, and our heads exploded (not literally, because then it’d be really hard to eat s’mores). Then we wondered about dissected Snickers bars, and whether or not they’d melt under the heat of the roasted marshmallow. Then, one of us suggested a York Peppermint Patty — there was controversy. We knew there was only one thing to do: Test them all.
And so we did. Below, you’ll find our assessment of each, with beautiful GIFs to accompany each magical s’more. Don’t be jealous. Just go make one for yourself instead.
