8 Best Uses of S'mores Flavor in Metro Phoenix
The simple beauty of s'mores: Find the right stick. Poke it through a marshmallow and stick it over a campfire. Once it's the perfect gooeyness and crispiness, carefully plop it on top of a piece of Hersey's chocolate and sandwich it between graham crackers.
Now that we are too old to go on scout camping trips -- and the mess may not be considered the most glamorous of desserts -- we still crave the sticky, chocolaty and crunchy sweetness. We are in luck, as s'mores have never been more in fashion.
Here are 8 places to get s'mores-inspired desserts in the Valley, bonfire not included.

S'more cupcakes at Treehouse Bakery These cupcakes are almost as messy as original s'mores, but it's worth grabbing a few extra napkins in order to indulge. Treehouse Bakery bakes vegan treats, but a non-vegan wouldn't notice. The s'more cupcakes are made at random, and they sell quickly. With a graham cracker base, chocolate cake, a light frosting, chocolate drizzle and a marshmallow on top, we understand why. We left with two.
S'mores sundae at Churn Churn is a great stop for an old-timey candy shop feel and great snacks. Here the s'mores sundae is made up of chocolate ice cream and grahams. But, instead of a single marshmallow, Churn uses marshmallow fluff and toasts it. If the marshmallow is your favorite part, this is the s'mores sundae for you.
