It is not hard to believe there is a national day to celebrate this campfire delicacy -- the beloved s'more.

From the graham cracker to the toasted marshmallow to the gooey chocolate, it is a great summer treat. While it is risky to have a campfire in Arizona due to the heat, potential for wildfires and the fact that we live in a desert, you can still get your s'mores fix.

In celebration of National S'more Day (Wednesday, August 10), here are a few places offering s'more-inspired sweet treats (and dang do they look good). Scroll below to see (in no particular order).

Zen S'mores at Sushi Roku

ZEN S'MORES

Consider this to be your own personal table side campfire. Sushi Roku's Zen S'mores dessert lets you roast your own marshmallows. The dish also comes with chocolate truffles, green tea blocks and marshmallow cream for dipping. It is then served over Graham cracker crumbles.

FLUFF IT MARSHMALLOWS

Two years ago, a shop dedicated to homemade gourmet marshmallows opened in Gilbert. Last month, Insider did a too-good-to-eat video on Fluff It Marshmallows and it went viral. So viral that the shop sold out in the many days after. You can buy pre-made ones in a variety of flavors (ie: Birthday cake, banana split, orange cream, peanut butter etc) or you can have yours toasted right in front of you and served in a cookie bowl.
