Crazy S’mores milkshakes with chocolate, graham cracker and toasted marshmallow. Make this recipe just in time for National S’mores Day.
Shut the front door.
I just found out that next Wednesday, August 10th is National S’mores Day. What better way to celebrate my new favorite fake holiday than with these fun S’mores milkshakes? They are an entertaining twist on the classic snack. Despite how impressive they look, they are actually super fun and easy to make. Even more fun though, will be the look on the face of whoever you serve them too!
People talk a lot about apple pie as a traditional American symbol, but I would like to argue that nothing is more American than the S’more. People have been coming together to make S’mores for over 90 years!
HERSHEY’S is combining the nostalgic experience of making S’mores with the upcoming Rio 2016 Olympic Games, as part of an official sponsorship of Team USA. With all of the mystique associated with them, I sometimes forget that US Olympic athletes are (sort of) typical teenagers and young adults. And let’s not forget their close friends and family. These people support the athletes in pursuit of their Olympic dreams.
In celebration of these connections, Hershey’s is inviting the world to join in the Olympic Movement by creating a shared moment on Twitter with Team USA and their families by sending messages of support and encouragement using #HelloFromHome. I hope you’ll join me in making a S’more, or one of these amazing S’mores Milkshakes, on August 10th! It will be a symbol of ‘home’ for the athletes of Team USA when they’re in Rio.
Oh, and don’t forget that the Opening Ceremony for The Olympic Games is tonight, August 5th! Are you going to watch?

- Prep Time: 30 minutes
- Total Time: 30 minutes

- Category: Drinks
- Cuisine: American
For the chocolate base:
- 7.75 ounces (5 bars) HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate, divided
For the homemade whipped cream:
- 1/2 pint whipping cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 tablespoon sugar
For the chocolate graham cracker milkshake:
- 1 1/2 pints vanilla ice cream (plus 1/2 pint for assembly)

- Make the chocolate shake by blending ice cream, milk, 1/2 cup of the melted chocolate and graham crackers until smooth.
- Use leftover melted chocolate as ‘glue’ to attach pieces of HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate Bars to Microwave on 10 second intervals if the chocolate starts to seize.
- Spoon a generous spoonful of ice cream into glass. Pour in milkshake mixture.
