Let’s call camping what it is: an excuse to eat s’mores. So why not skip the tent and go straight for the good stuff? Here’s where to find that trifecta of summertime flavors, minus the bug bites. And these s’mores desserts aren’t the kind you can make ’round the campfire.

Nineteen27 S’moresPortland, OR As the legend goes, the first documented s’mores recipe appeared in a Girl Scouts handbook in the year 1927. The troops would be proud of this new-millenium update: a s’mores food truck (yassss) serving handmade graham crackers with filling options like chai-spiced marshmallows, lemon curd spread and chocolate fudge. At $4 per s’more, you should be able to try them all. Scout’s honor.

Burger Tap and Shake — Washington, DC Your inner child will feel naughty indulging in the Bad Cubmaster ($8.50), a boozy milkshake of Smirnoff marshmallow-flavored vodka, Godiva chocolate liqueur, vanilla ice cream and graham crackers in a frosty glass. Adulthood has its privileges.

Pricing starts at $2 for four mini-donuts, plus $1 for toppings.

Trophy Cupcakes — Seattle, WA Martha Stewart called these Chocolate Graham Cracker cupcakes “utterly delicious,” so who are we to disagree? Sink your teeth into a bittersweet chocolate and graham cracker crust, chocolate cake and marshmallowy meringue icing. We’d give it a trophy.

Bryan Street Tavern — Dallas, TX This hangout spot is the place for live music, poker and unfussy food. If your appetite is the size of Texas, finish your meal with the S’mores Pizza ($6)— a 9-inch pie of  marshmallow, graham cracker and warm chocolatey goodness baked in a stone fired pizza oven.

The Paris Creperie — Boston, MA Everything’s classier in French, so s’mores get a Parisian twist at this East Coast eatery: a “graham cracker infused crepe” (how do they do it?) stuffed with Nutella and marshmallows, plus more marshmallows on the outside. The treat comes in petite ($4.29) and regular ($7.99) sizes.

Dominique Ansel BakeryNew York, NY The mastermind behind the Cronut has found another way to attract droves of customers to his SoHo bakery: The Frozen S’more. It’s a honey marshmallow wrapped around homemade, Tahitian vanilla ice cream (how is that even possible?), and covered with cripsy chocolate feuilletine wafers—all torched and served on a smoked willow branch, natch.
