I am a self-proclaimed
I think that love comes from the pure joy and innocent feeling I have when I eat them. They take me back to the days of camping with Girl Scouts, building bonfires with my family on a cool fall evning at my uncle’s ranch, and New Kids on the Block.
Not that I ever ate s’mores with the New Kids on the Block, although I wouldn’t be opposed to sharing a gooey s’more with Marky Mark; but I was obsessed with NKOTB at the same time of my life when I was in Girl Scouts and building bonfires.
S’mores make you feel like a kid again and again every time you eat them (evident by all my s’mores party guests). I think that is why they are loved by all!
Another classiclly fun treat from my younger years, Rice Krispie Treats. I mean in classic form the are similar to a s’more with all that ooey gooey-ness, so why not combine them?!?
Dare I scream fun!
4 tablespoons butter
2 (10 oz) packages large marshmallows
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
4 cups Rice Krispie Cereal
1 giant Hershey Milk Chocolate Bar, broken into squares
Preheat broiler and spray 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray.
In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Stir in vanilla and one and a half packages of marshmallows; stirring until marshmallows are completely melted. Remove from heat.
Add in graham cracker crumbs and cereal. Stir until well coated.
Press into prepared pan using spatula that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Cut remaining marshmallows in half. Top prepared krispie treats with chocolate squares and halved marshmallows. Place prepared treats under broiler just to melt chocolate and toast marshmallows. Cool slightly. Cut into squares. Best if served the same day.
