S’mores Popcorn Mix – the name says it all. Without a doubt, summer’s most addicting snack!
Welcome to Friday! Do you have any fun plans this weekend? I recently decided to paint ALL the trim around our new house. Living in a mostly white house has been my dream for what seems like forever now. While I absolutely love the way things are coming along, I didn’t think it would take as long as it is. I am not complaining though – the more progress I make, the more I fall head over heels for the way our house now feels and looks. I might even start sharing our tiny house makeover. Are you guys interested?
Since it’s taking me a while to repaint, I don’t like to waist time by taking any kind of a break, even when it comes to food. I know! So quick snacks and on the go meals are my jam. Which is exactly where this popcorn mix comes in. I’ve been snacking on regular popcorn while painting, but I finally grew tired of it and knew I needed to step things up. Inspired by summer and one of the best flavors of life, s’mores, I knew just what to do. Continue reading →
Shortbread Cookies filled with Chocolate and Marshmallow Crème. The perfect sandwich if you ask me.
If you do one thing this upcoming weekend, try to make your own version of S’mores Sandwich Cookies and celebrate the fact that summer is right around the corner/has already arrived. Our MN weather can’t seem to make up its mind. One day we have lots and lots of rain with highs in the mid 60’s and the next day we’re hitting 80 degrees. So yeah, we’re basically taking in a wet spring while basking in summer’s sunshine all at the same time. Will you please make up your mind, weather? At least we’re heading into the right direction.
While I’m waiting, I’m all about making sandwich cookies with the classic s’mores flavors. A crunchy cookie, satisfying chocolate and ooey goey roasted marshmallows.
Helloooo my new favorite summer treat. Just wait – once you taste ’em for yourself, you won’t be able to resist the urge for some s’more! Continue reading →
Addicting S’mores Bars that can be made ahead of time, require no baking, and are loved by all.
Because it truly feels like Spring around here, which means we’ll be spending as much time as possible outside in the next couple of months, I’ve been thinking about desserts that are perfect to prepare for warmer weather.
My longing for a bonfire and sitting outside long after it’s gotten dark, might also have something to do with today’s sweet treat. Nothing says warm weather more than s’mores. Crunchy graham crackers, gooey marshmallows, and melted chocolate. One of the best inventions ever, for sure.
The only thing better than enjoying an actual s’more with a freshly roasted marshmallow, is an entire pan of s’mores bars whipped up in less than 10 minutes with minimal effort.
I can’t think of a bar recipe that’s easier and more delicious than this one. Continue reading →
Gooey Brownies filled with Graham Crackers, Chocolate and Mini Marshmallows.Simply ah-mazing!
Wow, Friday. It sort of caught me off guard that we’re entering the weekend already, which is certainly not a bad thing! Come to realize that Labor Day is just around the corner and that I will be seeing yellow school buses all over on my way to work Tuesday morning.
Goodbye summer – you will be missed. Until I’ll taste my first pumpkin-spiced coffee, that is ;). I secretly can’t wait to drive up to our coffee shop and purchase said beverage. I heard that Starbucks released theirs on Tuesday… not acceptable while we’re still in August if you ask me, but anything goes in September.
So as a last and definitely must-make summer treat, I made you some incredible bars. I stumbled upon them a couple of weeks ago and waited for the perfect moment to prepare them. They have Labor Day Weekend written all over.
And for good reason. Come along and find out how to make these scrumptious bars. Continue reading →
Saltine Toffee aka “Christmas Crack” meets its summertime counterpart. With the addition of an ooey gooey marshmallow layer, this version is a serious contender. Now you don’t have to wait all year to enjoy your favorite treat!
Have I told you lately how much I love blogging? I mean, one day I can post a salad and the next day a sweet treat that will knock your socks off.
I never know where this journey is taking me one minute or what outrageous concoction I can come up with next.
As promised, I didn’t waste a hot second to get back to the sweet stuff. Now this saltine toffee comes from an intense craving for the kind that you usually make around Christmas time. But since I refuse to think about anything that has to do with colder months, I knew I had to come up with a version that’s appropriate for the (hopefully) warmer days ahead.
If you adore the regular saltine toffee as much as I do, you have got to try this version. Dare I say that I prefer this one over the original? You betcha. Continue reading →
