Everyone knows calories don’t count when you’re staying in a McCurtain County cabin. Maybe that’s why s’mores rule the roost here in McCurtain County, Oklahoma.

The best way to end a day of play in Beavers Bend State Park is messy marshmallows over a cracklin’ campfire. But why keep your after-dinner delicacy low-key? Instead, take a page from your larger-than-life cabin and give those s’mores a luxury twist. All you need’s a little grocery run before your next McCurtain County getaway.

Country Breakfast S’more

Country Breakfast S'more

You’ll need:

  • Candied bacon
  • Chocolate
  • Syrup for drizzlin’
  • Toasted marshmallows
  • Silver dollar pancakes

Whether you start the morning with them or the day’s activities call for breakfast at midnight, bring the best of the A.M. to your campfire with this s’more. Instead of graham crackers, fire up the griddle and whip up palm-sized pancakes (with some chocolate chips in the batter if you’re feeling extra). Then stack ‘em high with your marshmallow, melty chocolate, crispy candied bacon, and a final syrup drizzle. Served best with a hot cuppa joe.

Chocolate Dipped Strawberry S’more

You’ll need:

  • Sliced strawberries
  • Dark chocolate
  • Toasted marshmallows
  • Graham crackers

Oh, you’re fancy, huh? You’re gonna want to add this one to the list for your next romantic getaway or bachelorette weekend. Overflowing with fresh Oklahoma strawberries and decadent dark chocolate, the upscale chocolate dipped strawberry s’more deserves its own red carpet moment. Keep the lux experience going with a glass of champagne and dip in your cabin’s roaring hot tub.

Elvis S’more

You’ll need:

  • Peanut butter
  • Sliced bananas
  • Bacon strips
  • Chocolate
  • Toasted marshmallows
  • Graham crackers

A little bit sweet, a little bit salty, a whole lot of rock ‘n’ roll. Make The King proud and load up your standard s’more with a bit of PB, fresh banana slices, and of course, bacon. This salty sweet treat’s so good it’ll have you crooning “thank ya, thank ya very much” after every bite.

Oh Fudge S’more

You’ll need:

  • Local fudge
  • Chopped walnuts
  • Toasted marshmallows

When in Hochatown! Give those graham crackers a vacation of their own and swap them out for fudge. Simply, sandwich your pieces around a toasty golden marshmallow and sprinkle with chopped walnuts for extra crunch. For your fresh fudge fix, stop into a local shop like Whip-Poor-Will Fudge and Sweet Shoppe, Hochatown Coffee Central, Hey Sugar, or Hochatown Swamp Booger Mercantile before heading back to the cabin.

Oklahoma Pecan Pie S’more

You’ll need:

  • Pecan pie filling
  • Glazed pecans
  • Brown sugar for sprinklin’
  • Chocolate
  • Toasted marshmallows
  • Mini pie crusts

Few things give you that taste of Oklahoma quite like a slice of pecan pie. The secret to this s’more is the mini pie crusts. Once they’re golden brown, fill ‘em up with your favorite pecan pie filling (bonus points if it’s homemade). Then squish together your chocolate, glazed pecans, and tad of brown sugar for that fresh baked pie finish. Whether you reside on the “pee-can” or “puh-con” side of the fence, everyone will agree this s’more hits the spot.

Sopapilla Cheesecake S’more

You’ll need:

  • Cheesecake filling
  • Cinnamon sugar for sprinklin’
  • Honey for drizzlin’
  • Chocolate
  • Toasted marshmallows
  • Cinnamon graham crackers

Just reading the name of this one has our mouths watering. Inspired by the Mexican pastry, this s’more marries your traditional chocolate and ‘mallow with a delectable combo of creamy cheesecake filling, cinnamon sugar, and honey. Don’t skip out on the cinnamon graham crackers either — the perfect spiced crunch to that sweet cheesecake goodness.

Peach Cobbler S’more

You’ll need:

  • Grilled peach halves
  • Brown sugar for sprinklin’
  • Toasted marshmallows
  • Graham crackers
  • Vanilla ice cream (optional…but highly recommended)

You just might mistake this s’more for great grandma’s famous cobbler. While you’re grilling up steaks on your cabin’s porch, throw some grill marks on a few peach halves too. (If it’s summer, some of the best can be found at Idabel Farmers Market or Valliant Farmers Market!) Then smush those puppies between some graham crackers and piping hot marshmallows.

Pro tip: Bring out a few bowls and top your toasty peach cobbler s’more with vanilla ice cream. You can thank us later.
