As summer draws to a close, we’re celebrating sweet endings with six decadent, ooey-gooey desserts across Westchester County.

National S’mores Day is August 10, and what better way to celebrate than to check out some local riffs on this favorite chocolate-marshmallow snack? Even if the cravings last longer than the day (as they should), these sweet treats will keep summer vibes going strong.

Shake Things Up

Bona Bona starts us off strong with the over-the-top Italian Campfire Milkshake: smooth Nutella-s’mores ice cream served in a Nutella-rimmed glass with whipped cream, roasted marshmallows, and salted graham cracker crumble. You can also order the Nutella S’mores ice cream solo or try your luck with the S’mores Lava Cake, a Valrhona chocolate cake topped with graham cracker ice cream and whip.

S’mores Nutella Pizza. Need We Say More?

At Mount Kisco’s Exit 4 Food Hall, swap tomato sauce for Nutella and cheese for fluffy marshmallow, and you’ll get the food hall’s popular dessert pizza. This Instagram-worthy dessert is baked in a wood-fired oven and topped with powdered sugar. It’s perfect for sharing, but you might not want to.

Try a Grown-up Take on the Campfire Classic

This ain’t your childhood s’mores. At UnWined, Somers’ newest wine bar, you’ll find a mature twist on the treat: a graham cracker tart with chocolate ganache and housemade marshmallow brûlée. Owner Stephanie Small says it’s their most popular dessert and is in keeping with “our idea of having classic foods on our menu but adding a signature twist.”

Make It a Double (Scoop)

Known for its small batch, premium ice cream, Longford’s in Rye serves up this chocolate ice cream studded with graham crackers, marshmallows, and (more chocolate!) chocolate chips.

Roast Your Own

Sometimes the hands-on experience of turning marshmallows over the fire until they’re perfectly golden brown is the best part. Stop short of starting a fire pit in your backyard and head over to the White Plains’ Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ for the real deal. Diners cook their own meats and seafood at this Asian barbecue joint — but the s’mores is a crowd favorite.
