Most agree that the first recorded recipe for Smores was printed in 1927 by the American Girl Scouts in a book titled, Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts'". However, there were various treats that came before the Smores that may have influenced the popular camping treat.

While the exact origin of Smores remains a mystery, the typical Smore ingredients remain the same.
