Friday, August 10, is National S’mores Day, and, although there's a burn ban in effect in Washington and campfires may be out of the question, there are plenty of places in Seattle to get the flavors of the chocolaty, smoky treat—but in a way that's crafted, safely, by a professional (chances are good they'll taste better that way, too). The options below range from sundaes to cookies to actual s'mores. Plus, we've included a list of upcoming s'mores-themed events at the bottom of the list.
S'mores Bundt Cake at Dahlia Bakery
Usually, a visit to the Dahlia Bakery means a huge slice of T. Doug’s triple coconut cream pie, coined “Seattle’s Favorite Dessert” by many. Not today, friends. Today you want the s’mores bundt cake, a graham cake with chocolate cake and a toasted house-made marshmallow on top.
“Mackles’more” at Hello Robin
Capitol Hill’s Hello Robin features the “Mackles'more” regularly—it’s a s'mores cookie with Theo chocolate chunks, and yes, it’s named after that Macklemore (also reportedly a Capitol Hill resident).
S’mores Kits at Hot Cakes Molten Chocolate Cakery
Hot Cakes' award-winning s'mores kits include all the ingredients you need for crafting your ideal s’more: cold-smoked chocolate, buttery graham crackers and house-made mallows (enough to make six total). You could also try the s’mores molten chocolate cake (roasted to order), the s’mores bar, or the s’mores cookie.
The S’mores Macaron at Lady Yum
Lady Yum has an impressive selection of macarons in every color and flavor, but one that is especially intriguing is the s’mores macaron. Dainty French delicacy meets scrappy, all-American amuse-bouche? It has all the trappings of a perfect hybrid.
S'more Cookie at Midnight Cookie Company
Fremont’s Midnight Cookie Co. is the perfect solution to your nighttime munchies, and it also just so happens that they have a special s’mores cookie on their menu. At $1.75, you can easily and affordably satiate your s’mores craving with this all-in-one masterpiece.
Complimentary Nightly S’mores at Shelter Lounge
Shelter Lounge in Ballard offers all the ingredients for making (free!) s’mores outside in its fire pit area. Anyone can have access to the nightly s’mores with the purchase of an entree.
The S’mores Sundae at Shug’s Soda Fountain
Shug’s Soda Fountain downtown has a cute, retro feel and a large variety of ice creams that may be transformed into sundaes. One of those elevated sundaes is the s’mores version, resplendent with marshmallows (toasted tableside—yes, really), graham cracker crumbles, and chocolate.
S’mores Ice Cream at Molly Moon's
Luckily for you, National S'mores Day sometimes becomes a National S'mores Month. For the rest of August, Molly Moon's will be scooping s'mores-flavored ice cream at each location, complete with graham cracker crust, marshmallow, and milk chocolate ganache. We hear there is a discernible "hint of smoked salt," and "torched marshmallow." Need we say more?
Smookie at Macrina Bakery
The beloved bakery's summer menu features the "smookie," a s'mores-cookie hybrid: fluffy homemade marshmallows sandwiched between graham cracker cookies studded with bittersweet chocolate.
S'Mores Cake at Deep Sea Sugar and Salt
Want to eat s'mores in cake form? Charlie Dunmire's Georgetown cake shop serves a s'mores cake, made with graham cracker cake, honey syrup, semi sweet chocolate ganache, and toasted marshmallow.
S'More Choco Tacos at Sawyer
Love choco tacos? The recently opened Ballard restaurant from former Lark chef de cuisine Mitch Mayers features a house-made s'mores version of the classic frozen treat on their dessert menu, with a graham cracker waffle cone, peanut butter ice cream, and meringue.
Marshmallows at Hood Famous Bakeshop
You'll have to supply your own chocolate and graham crackers, but the Filipino-owned bakery in Ballard makes their own delicious marshmallows with flavors like ube, calamansi, guava, and mango for a special twist on the classic.
