As the hot, dog-days of summer are upon us, hardly a moment goes by when you don’t think about sweet ways to cool-down. But one alternative to the ice cream fix is the commemoration of National S’Mores Day on August 10th. Since the Girls Scouts created this delectable mix of three ingredients -- graham cracker, marshmallow and chocolate -- over a campfire in 1927, s’mores have become a staple of our tastier lives.

For those of you who want to branch-out beyond the delectable Trader Joe’s delight Smashing S’mores Delight, here are restaurants offering amazing s’mores.
