Smores, Lighter Way to Satisfy a SweetTooth
Who doesn’t love a smore? My kids ask for them constantly but we don’t make them very often. We usually do them over the fire pit maybe a couple times each summer, but they could eat them every day if I would let them! Not to mention, they aren’t exactly the healthiest snack in the world. Sometimes you just need a treat though, right? These satisfy the craving, but the serving sizes are much smaller, and they are lighter than the original. If you are craving the classic smore taste of summer, give these a try!
You will need:
chocolate chips or chocolate candy coating
Begin by crushing up a couple of graham crackers. You don’t need very many, I used 3 and had a lot of crumbs left over. Once they are crushed, place the crumbs in a small, shallow bowl that will be easy to dip in.
Melt some chocolate. I started with 2 squares and got about 15 marshmallows out of it. Holding the end of your marshmallow, dip the other end into the chocolate. Let it drip off into your bowl.
Then quickly dip it into your graham cracker crumbs. Place it chocolate side up on wax paper to cool. The chocolate will harden.
There you have it! These would make great finger foods for a party or picnic, or use them as a party favor in a cute vellum bag! For now, my kids are just eating them. Store them in an airtight container and have them on hand when you have a craving or want to indulge a sweet tooth without the guilt!

Strawberry Shortcake Cookies by Tiffany
I’m a total sucker for sweet little babies coming to my door selling cookies. Mothers of Girl Scouts, yes, this means your children. ;) But in all reality it’s any and all kids that come a knockin’ selling ANY kind of cookie. Recently, I had a cutie selling frozen Otis Spunkmeyer cookie dough for a school fundraiser. I bought a container. Helloooo! Who can turn down cookies, especially from a cutie?! Well, I’m sure there’s plenty of people who can, but me?! Um… that would be a HUGE NO! That’s probably why I have way too much junk in my trunk - if you get what I’m sayin’.
Anywaaays… When I was looking through the cookie brochure, I came across a cookie that struck my fancy. I’m always on the prowl for different flavored goodies I can recreate at home and this was one of them. Strawberry Shortcake Cookies – packed full of white chips, sweet dried strawberry craisins and tart dried cranberries. A blast of flavor coming at you in these babies! Enjoy. And thank you Otis, for the inspiration.
Oh! And one more thing… (I know, sorry, I’m a jibber jabber this week.;) These smell absolutely fabulous! I wish I could bottle the smell somehow, someway. I was thinking about placing one in each bedroom as a freshener… no, not really. I’m just kidding. Sides, I most likely would forget that I put them in the rooms and find them a week later- all moldy. But yeah, they smelled that good!
Yields approx. 2 dozen
I found my strawberry craisins in the bulk section in the bins at our local Winco.
