How We Spent National S’mores Day on August 10th

Picture this: you’re sitting by a campfire, letting your marshmallow roast to a toasty perfection: a crispy outside and gooey inside. You slide the marshmallow off onto your graham cracker, add a piece of chocolate, and put the other graham cracker on top to complete the sandwich. The s’more is ready, and the heat of the marshmallow begins to melt the chocolate into a oozing perfection. But here’s a problem – campfires aren’t always easy to find. That’s why we created our list of delicious, chocolatey gooey s’mores dishes around Atlanta and visited a few on August 10th.

Sublime Donuts
The home of the donut ice cream cone and winners of multiple culinary prizes, Sublime Donuts takes it up a level by combining the classic donut with the ingredients and flavors of a s’more. In this dish, Sublime uses their fluffy yeast donut and makes their own marshmallow fluff to squeeze into the middle. After torching the fluff, the smoky flavor reaches the entire donut, so that every bite tastes a little like a campfire. Then, the donut is covered in a rich chocolate icing, and for a crunch, graham cracker crumbs are sprinkled on top. Every bite of this soft donut reminds you of the summer classic.

Folk Art
As the saying goes, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So, you might as well have a hearty breakfast. And what better way to start your day than at Folk Art in Inman Park? Folk Art is serving up Insta-worthy breakfast dishes such as a jumbo bacon, sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit and a fried chicken and waffles with a whisky peach compote. However, one of the headliners is definitely the chocolate s’mores pancakes. The pancakes are made with sweet potato, then topped with marshmallow fluff, chocolate drizzle and crushed up graham crackers. It’s a meal where you don’t mind if it’s a little bit of a mess.

Queen of Cream
What could be better than cold, refreshing ice cream fused with a hot s’more? Queen of Cream is serving this outrageously tasty combination in sundae form, so save room for this dessert the next time you’re in Inman Park. The sundae is made up of their homemade vanilla bean ice cream, hot fudge and graham cracker crumbs. The star of the dish is the hand-molded, torched marshmallow, fired specially for each dish. The marshmallow is still hot when it hits the ice cream, allowing for it to slightly melt the sundae and bring the entire dish together.
