One friend who is beautiful beyond words, let's just say that she makes '50 look REALLY good. She brought some amazing things for S'mores to change it up a bit. In her grouping of items were; Peanut butter cups, 2 musketeer bars (mini), ghirardelli dark choc. squares, raspberries and gourmet choc. chip cookies and giant marshmallows...there may have been a few more things as well but I don't remember.
(this was a different bonfire we had mid-summer)I first tried the giant marshmallow between two gourmet choc. chip cookies...YUM! Then I took a bite of someone elses graham cracker, dark chocolate, marshmallow and raspberry s'more and oh boy! YUMMY!
Yesterday when I went grocery shopping I bought the items needed to re-create this decadent snack. Thankfully they were items I would use anyways because I kind of chuckled at myself for buying items just so I could take a picture and blog about it. I was really hoping raspberries weren't expensive. Costco didn't disappoint me, and I needed them anyway for a peach/raspberry pie I'm making this weekend.
Before we get to that yummy gooey s'more, I was so excited at Costco yesterday when one of the workers came up and asked to scan my card. I thought "what, did I win money, a gift card, a vacation, free groceries". Nope! I won the opportunity to have my groceries "pre-scanned" so they were ready to go when I got to the checkout (because I had 10 or less items), boxed, with a bright pink laminated card that said "pre-scanned" so all I had to do was hand the clerk my money. She scanned my card, saw that my items had already been entered, told me the amount (which I already knew because the gal with the scanner gun already told me), I handed her my money and out the door I went. I never had to take them out of the cart. Great idea Costco!
Okay, so my yummy S'more? Simple.....
- graham cracker
- dark chocolate square/you could use nutella too..
- a few fresh raspberries
My friend Sandy did a post not long ago on a variety of S'more recipes she found. Check it out, there are some amazing ones out there. I'm off now to make some yummy homemade frozen burritos.
They are a perfect snack or quick meal!
