Summer just about screams s’mores doesn’t it?

Sitting around the camp fire, stars twinkling overhead. The kids all running around, squealing with delight at the unheard of chance to stay up way past bedtime. Way, way past.

The heavenly scent of marshmallows, roasting, turning a golden brown with crisp edges.

The chocolate warming, melting, getting to know the marshmallow on a very intimate level.

The crunch of graham crackers, exploding with chocolate and marshmallow, holding the whole thing together.

S’mores. It’s what summer is all about.

Sometimes though, I just want a cookie. Who doesn’t really? But in the middle of June, I also want something that screams summer.

And so, I was inspired to combine two of my most very favorite things on the face of the earth. S’mores and cookies.
