s'mores on a stick

DSC02702
honestly these were too cute to not write about
another game day treat - a sweet treat this time
super easy, super fast, incredibly fun

can i tell you how excited i was on saturday to find dandies hidden on a lower shelf at sunflower
super excited. so excited i had to hold in a little squeal
there was a class on immunity boosters taking place in the store and i have a feeling they would have been as excited as i was at that very moment

you see, s'mores was my absolute favorite camping tradition up until i became a vegan
truth is, i kinda ignored the whole marshmallows are not vegetarian once a year
however when becoming vegan, i could not just pretend anymore
last fall was the first camping trip ever i did not dance around the camp fire with sticky marshmallow fingers covered in pine needles with a chocolate mess dripping down my chin

oh s'mores, i missed you
so very much

this game day treat
 or any day of the week treat for that matter
comes together so fast
with minimal ingredients

mini dandies are skewered on mini skewers or toothpicks and rolled in melted chocolate
then rolled again in crushed graham crackers
see i told you- so easy

i couldn't have my own campfire, but that didn't mean my little s'mores couldn't
i know- i am a dork

  5. Smores on sticks sitting around their own campfire? So adorable! I hope they don't get suicidal around that fire though...Love the idea of sticking them in graham crackers to hold them up too!
