S’mores and summer are like peas and carrots.

S'more

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been on a real kick with S’mores-flavored desserts lately. (And if you haven’t noticed, well, you must be new. So welcome!)

That’s why, when Hershey (via The Motherhood) contacted me about a S’mores campaign they’re working on, it made sense to work with them.

I’m about halfway through my s’mores cooking kick. So far, I’ve made:

By the way, you know your food obsession has gotten out of hand when friends start e-mailing you with recipes. Or, perhaps that’s how it should be after all. (I’m just kidding, Nikki! I can’t wait to make those S’mores cake pops!)

This summer, the Hershey Company is encouraging families to create their own S’mores memories with the Say S’mores campaign. Starting June 15, families are invited to capture and share their favorite S’mores moments on the Hershey’s brand Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/hersheys for a chance to win S’mores-themed prizes.

The grand prize is a Canon Rebel Camera, slate marble outdoor firebowl, $250 SnapFish gift card, roasting skewers set and all of the ingredients needed to make S’mores, including Hershey’s Milk Chocolate bars. Families who visit the Hershey’s brand Facebook page on or after June 15 can download the Say S’mores application to participate in monthly photo contests and receive a $1 coupon good toward the purchase of any two Hershey’s Milk Chocolate bar 6-packs.

Hello?! Is that an awesome prize pack or WHAT? In a couple months, I’ll be writing about Hershey and S’mores again – and it will be on a surprise topic. As in, I don’t know what the topic is yet! What I DO KNOW is that I’ll keep trying out new S’mores-related recipes and sharing them with you, all summer long. Because, with apologies to Forrest, summer and S’mores go together like peas and carrots!

Except, yeah, WAY tastier.

    Very cool, Mary. I’m glad you have this fun opportunity.

    I was thinking about S’Mores last night as I was lying in bed, not able to sleep. I really was! We’re headed to a lake house for a month this summer, and I was dreaming of the campfires we’ll have and the S’Mores we’ll make. Yum!

    I’m a little obsessed with the S’mores thing myself! We have made many already, mostly in the oven for lack of a campfire. They still taste good though!!
