Give Me S'more, Please
As winter sneaks up on us and the temperature drops down to a bone-chilling low tonight I have been determined to start a cozy bonfire soon. There’s just something about this time of year that makes me want to sit around a toasty fire, a warm blanket, and a stick skewered with marshmallows. I love the sweet rustic smell of burning wood and toasted marshmallows.
I’ve been an avid devotee of the classic s’more for the first half of my life. Two perfectly roasted marsh mellows placed on a small slab of Hershey’s milk chocolate and wedged between two crisp graham crackers. It doesn’t get any better than that. Or does it?
Lindt Milk Chocolate and Double Milk Chocolate Bars
Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark and Almond bars (I think you could really do some damage with the chocolate squares)
Anna’s Chocolate Mint Thins and Ginger Thins
I have no self-control when it comes to sweets and having a “sweet tooth” is an under statement. A toasted marshmallow with the chocolate almond bar smashed between two ginger thins. Another marshmallow was paired with peppermint bark and packed between chocolate mint thins. The possibilities are endless. Peanut butter with roasted banana, a marshmallow, and double milk chocolate sandwiched with graham crackers.
