"S'Mores: Gourmet Treats for Every Occasion" has techniques for roasting the perfect marshmallow and properly melting a piece of chocolate, but Adams pairs and substitutes the three original ingredients to come up with dozens of recipes. -- Wichita Eagle, March 28, 2007
A little stack of sweetness just got better. The book gives s'mores lovers something to salivate over. -- Miami Herald, International Edition, March 9, 2007
Adams takes the humble campfire treat to new levels. The pictures will have you reaching for the lighter and bag of marshmallows. -- Arizona Daily Star, April 4, 2007
Author Lisa Adams puts such a creative twist on her recipe variations that even traditionalists are sure to find a new favorite. -- St. Petersburg Times, March 21, 2007
Lisa Adams has managed to come up with more than 60 creative and palate-pleasing variations in "S'mores". Don't let the subtitle - "Gourmet treats for every occasion" - mislead you. The recipes are simple enough for an 8-year-old Girl Scout to prepare. All feature marshmallows, but many include tasty substitutes for plain graham crackers: brownies, chocolate chip cookies, apples, and even pound cake. It's the combinations that are gourmet - and meltingly delicious. -- Christian Science Monitor, April 11, 2007
Lots of luscious color pictures let you see the presentations. Overall, a fun and attractive book, guaranteed to bring out your inner Camp Fire Girl or Boy Scout. -- Library Journal, April 15, 2007
Our favorites are her seasonal s'mores, like the squashed chickie s'more. It puts Easter Peeps to perfect use, tastes really good, is horribly/wonderfully messy and will make you giggle. We're always ready for s'more of that. -- Chicago Tribune, April 4, 2007
You will never look at campfire treats the same. [Adams] takes those...concoctions to gourmet and beyond. -- Orlando Sentinel, February 21, 2007

We tried our recipes on the grill, but I have a feeling we'll also use the oven method. It rains a lot in Belgium!
Great book :)
For something different try using Reeses Peanut Butter Cups versus simple chocolate. People that come over to my house go crazy for them on fire nights. York Peppermint Patties are also amazing in a s'more! Try with different candy bars, really, you can have some amazing s'mores!
