S’more Brownies

Who doesn’t love the flavor of s’mores. How do you like your marshmallows – lightly toasted or charred? On our honeymoon, our resort had complimentary s’mores one night. I told Jeremiah we had to go. He probably could have cared less but indulged my request. We got their shortly after it began and the line was pretty long. We stood in line for probably like 20 minutes to get our s’mores. You would not believe the amount of mosquito bites I got just to eat a s’more.

For our 1st anniversary, I made this recipe to take to my in-laws for July 4th. We ended up not going because of crazy rain. They are pretty tasty but not very healthy so I shared this recipe with my coworkers. Delicious when eaten warm.

Caramel Chex Mix

I got this recipe from my sister. I have no idea who gave it to her but I would say it is one of her signature dishes. She often makes it as part of her Christmas gift for important people in her life. But she has also made it for road trips to Oklahoma and long hotel stays like when my dad’s wife was in the hospital. One of the things I really like about this recipe is how my sister always adds different things to it and it still turns out good. I hope you enjoy this sweet snack.
