You were't exactly the model scout.

You mastered the French braid faster than a square knot. And you still haven't lived down that little archery incident.

Still, when it comes to braving the great outdoors, you heed those judicious words: be prepared. Now you can enjoy the awesome art of s'mores, prepared for you by in a variety of modern confections. Try these before campfire season is over:

S'mores brownie at Crave (pictured)
Baked fresh in each location, the ganache brownie is made even better thanks to a graham cracker crust, torched marshmallow "frosting" and a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream. Plus a savory sprinkling of smoked sea salt helps all of the flavors sparkle.

Cupcake at D'Amico & Sons
How we wish we didn't know about this easy-to-pick-up treat. A gooey graham cracker cake is filled with a soft chocolate filling and topped with a fluffy, slightly browned marshmallow topping. You'll be licking your fingers to get every morsel.

Posh Tart at Kowalski's
A delicate pastry is filled with luxe versions of the expected ingredients. Pick it up in the deli case and heat it in your own oven for a heavenly and indulgent melt-in-your-mouth experience.

Gelato at Pandolfi
When it's hot out, you might want to trade toasting and roasting in for a few scoops of this creamy gelato with the graham cracker base, chocolate and marshmallows.
