Anyone who's outgrown classic s'mores will love this version: gooey-sweet melted marshmallow tempered by bittersweet chocolate cookies and salty roasted peanuts. Spread 1 tablespoon peanut butter (at room temperature, for easy spreading) onto a thin, crisp chocolate water (such as Nabisco Famous Chocolate Waters). Slide 1 skewer-toasted marshmallow onto peanut butter. Top with a second wafer and squish down gently. Eat, licking fingers.
Make these s'mores with graham crackers, a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup (or Nutella), sliced banana, and marshmallow.
Take the classic campfire dessert up a notch by adding strawberry slices to Graham crackers, dark chocolate, and roasted marshmallow.
Give s'mores a kick with gingersnaps, a caramel-filled chocolate square, and marshmallow.
Fill peanut-butter cookies with bittersweet chocolate, caramel sauce, and marshmallow.
For all-out indulgence, try peanut-butter cookies with Nutella, sliced banana, and marshmallow.
Any berry or berry combination works in this cake, which has a dry, crumbly topping that combines with the berry juices for a rich, sweet treat. Pack the frozen berries in a cooler and make this on the first night of camping, before they thaw completely.

This homey dessert cooks best over a bed of glowing embers, created by moving the low-burning logs of your fire out into a frame. Whipped crème fraîche gives the dessert a touch of sophistication.
