OOOOOORGAmi this looks good

Peanut Butter S'mores

  • 8 large chocolate chip cookies
  • 4 teaspoons hot fudge ice cream topping
  • 4 large marshmallows
  • 4 peanut butter cups
Spread the bottoms of four cookies with fudge topping.Using a long-handled fork, grill marshmallows 6 in. from medium-hot heat until golden brown, turning occasionally. Carefully place a marshmallow and a peanut butter cup on each fudge-topped cookie; top with remaining cookies. Serve immediately.
I'm having a family get together tomorrow evening where we're going to cook dutch oven...everything.  And while the dessert I'm making is definitely kid-approved (an easy Strawberry Shortcake recipe I recently got from a friend), if the kids decide to partake, there won't be enough for the grown-ups (like there won't be the 3 servings a piece that this shortcake incites).  So, I'm thinking I'll pull out the ingredients to make these S'mores. They look awesome!  And, any leftovers will do for my midnight closet-snack!

I forgot to say why I'm hosting this gathering and that's the most important thing of all!  My cute niece who all of the sudden graduated from high school and (I say all of the sudden because it literally to me was yesterday that she was in diapers), and is headed off to basic training in the next couple of weeks.  I am so excited for her and think it's such an amazing decision. I'm grateful that she's had responsible parenting that can guide her into making healthy decisions about her future.  Anyway, I'm going to miss her so much. She's such a remarkable girl and I can only hope to have my girls grow up into the woman she's become.
