You know that if the ingredients include butter, chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers you are going to have a good night.
I have a brother that may be even more obsessed than I am with dessert. I know, that sounds crazy but it is true. He emailed my mom a ‘must try’ recipe and she didn’t even think twice about buying the ingredients to make it with me.
Sunday night dessert is a serious issue in our household, we don’t just ‘try’ anything or ‘trust’ anyone to make such a huge decision for us.
****Please note, if you do make this recipe, please whatever you do, triple the ammount of marshmallows for true happiness.
That would be Billy in the background trying to do homework while listening to his wife talk with her mouth full about how amazing the dough is and that she would in fact marry it if she could.
Have you ever choked on sticking too much cookie batter in your mouth at once….yeah, me niether. And in case that does happen to anyone, I am thinking that smaller more frequent bites with a tall glass of milk would solve your choking problems.
Plop that dough onto a crust of sugar, graham cracker and butter.
Bake. If you overbake/burn such goodness, I will be mad at you and might not talk to you for a few days. This dessert must be a little gooey.
More chocolate? Why not!
And the finished product. All it was missing was a scoop of ice cream and some sort of sappy chick flick to watch while I eat it.
FYI this made great night before running fuel. Since it isn’t possible for your body to digest that much glucose in just 8 hours, I had plenty of leftover sugar in my veins to energize me to RUN in the early a.m;)

What is the best part of the smore for you, the chocolate, graham cracker or marshmallow? Any extra ingredients that you would add to the smore?
-Lately I have had a weird obsession with marshmallows. If you have any good recipes with marshmallows please let me know. I have heard PB is a great addition but I have never tried it.
Who do you trust when it comes to DESSERT?
-#1 My sister (our brain DNA is identical), #2 My brother (David, had to clear that one up) and my mother #3. I trust Billy when it comes to normal foods but not so much dessert….he isn’t a fan of crazy rich food which is clearly my favorite.
How often do you bake? Do you enjoy baking or cooking more?
-BAKING for me. In the summer it is weekly but during the school year it is probably every three weeks…..this will be changing because I really enjoy creating something that I know people are going to love!
