Modern twists on a classic treat might be just what you need.

10 Ways To Update Your Fav Campfire Snack When You Want S'more S'mores

If there's one snack that sums up summer and fall both, it's probably s'mores. With hoodie and shorts weather (a.k.a. the best weather) comes plenty of campfires and late nights under the open sky. Don't get me wrong, s'mores are a classic and wonderful on their own, but what if they were changed up a little? Plus, what are you supposed to do once it's February, it's 10 degrees outside and all you want is s'mores?

1. Make them in the oven


More commonly known as "Pan O' S'mores," these are perfect for if you can't have a campfire. They're also great for when you inevitably decide you want them here in a few months when it's beyond cold outside.

2. Cookies!


Instead of graham crackers, you could use two chocolate chip cookies to sandwich your lightly toasted marshmallow.

3. Use a Reese's Cup instead of a chocolate bar


I've only tried this a couple times, but it's amazing.

4. Add fruit


I like strawberries, but you could also use raspberries if that's your thing. Basically, you could have next-level chocolate-covered strawberries.

5. Campfire banana splits

While this one isn't technically a s'more, you could still put all the ingredients in it. Campfire banana splits are AMAZING.

6. S'mores bars


If you love gooey chocolate, this one's for you. "S'mores Bars" have the chocolate and marshmallow melting all over you, and I think they're better than the real thing.

7. Caramel squares


I *love* caramel, and I'll take any excuse to add it to a sweet dessert.

8. S'mores cookies

Who doesn't love cookies? S'mores cookies are definitely something to check out if you want to combine two of your favorite things. Cookie cups are also a solid plan.

9. Make it "double stuff"


Who said you have to only use one marshmallow?

10. S'mores pie


I might dislike pumpkin pie, but I'm not one to turn down pie that's chocolate. S'mores pie has a lot of variations with some looking like a cookie and some looking like ultimate fluff.

There are so many ways to change s'mores, and the growing number of types of marshmallows out there has contributed to that. Campfire, jumbo, mini, flavored—they've got it all. My favorite is campfire banana splits despite them technically not being s'mores, but to each their own.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
