While the origins of the annual celebration are unclear, the person credited for creating this tasty snack was a businessman named Alec Barnum. In 1927, the first published recipe of the s’mores was printed on Tramping and Training with the Girl Scouts. The original name for the treat was “Some Mores” but it was later shortened to s’mores.
