Did you know the delicious marshmallow, chocolatey, graham-cracker treat is rooted in Girl Scout history? The recipe for a s’more dates back to a 1925 Girl Scout Leader magazine and a 1927 Girl Scouts of the USA handbook, “Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts,” which featured a “Some More” recipe.

It’s never been a better time to discover Girl Scouts. For more information, go to kansasgirlscouts.org, call 888-686-MINT (6468), or email [email protected].
