I typically do all of my blogging for the week on the weekend before. I have a general idea of what I'm going to share with you, but I actually type up the posts, edit the pictures, do the scheduling and all that stuff. I did all of that on Saturday, then starting reading and somewhere in the middle of the book I was reading, I realized that I hadn't typed or scheduled this post.
Sunday I promptly forgot all about it. Then yesterday I was hit with the worst migraine I've ever had. My migraines are usually of the skull splitting mild nausea variety. This one topped out with light sensitivity, full on nausea, skull splitting pain to the point where my teeth were aching and it felt like all of the energy was being siphoned from my body. I don't even think I could wish that amount of pain on an enemy. Needless to say, blogging this post did not happen last night.
And of course now, instead of actually getting to the point of the post, I'm babbling about migraines and letting myself be easily sidetracked by planners. I bought a $7 one from Target but I keep drooling over the Erin Condren variety but I can't justify a $50 planner. So it's on my Amazon Wishlist.
I could talk about the joys of the wishlist, but I really need to get to the point of this post, which is that we are now 4 weeks into the 12 Weeks of Christmas Treats. I was planning on making something completely different for this week, but this recipe caught my eye and I knew there was no turning back. I love S'mores. A lot.
- 8 graham crackers, broken in half (16 squares)
- 16 marshmallows
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 5 tbsp. heavy cream
- ¼ cup crushed candy canes (or peppermint candies)
1. Preheat the oven to broil.
2. Combine chocolate chips and heavy cream in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring each time until smooth. Let cool slightly.
3. Transfer the melted chocolate to a piping bag fitted with a thin round tip.
4. Place a marshmallow on each graham cracker square and broil for 30 seconds - 1 minute until lightly toasted.
5. Drizzle the chocolate over the marshmallow and then sprinkle with the crushed candy canes.
This took absolutely no time at all and I'm kind of embarrassed to confess how quickly we scarfed these down. Plus I found something totally cool at the store... Square Flat Marshmallows! It really took much too long for them to create this.
