S'more s'mores

Updated versions of the classic s'mores of childhood

Everyone loves the classic s'mores of childhood. But now that we're older and have the patience to toast our marshmallows to a perfectly crisp, tan shell and gooey interior (no carbonized sugar lumps for us, please), we decided to sandwich them with these updated combinations.

Black forest: Chocolate wafer cookies and cherry jam

The Elvis: Peanut-butter sandwich cookies (twist cookies into two halves), dark or milk chocolate, and sliced bananas

Gianduja: Gaufrette, wafer, or pizelle-style cookies and chocolate-hazelnut spread (Nutella)

Lemon meringue pie: Shortbread cookies and lemon curd

Neoclassic: Digestive biscuits and squares of bittersweet chocolate

Piña colada: Coconut cookies and grilled slices of fresh pineapple

Prefab: Purchased chocolate-topped butter cookies (such as Petit Ecolier)

Thin mint: Chocolate wafer cookies and thin after-dinner mints (such as After Eight)
