Happy, happy, happy Thursday my loves! How can it not be happy?! My long weekend starts this afternoon and I literally couldn’t be more excited!
I also couldn’t be more excited about today’s post! Quick. Think of something that screams summer to you… how many of you thought of starry nights around the campfire?! There is nothing I love more in the summer than spending the evening around the campfire with my family and friends eating yummy food, chatting and drinking all the summer brews. The fire at my Grandma’s is my summertime happy place.
And do you know what else makes me really, really happy?! S’mores! The official dessert of summer is getting revamped by my friends at Wayfair this season and guys… you’re going to want these recipes for your #MDW bonfires!
With 5 different S’more recipes, you’re guaranteed to find something everyone likes! And when they say easy, they mean it! My family and I spent last Saturday night trying these delectable treats to see if they lived up to their pictures. And spoiler alert… they do!
For all these recipes you’ll need one important main ingredient… Marshmallows! Pro Tip: we used the big square ones for the pictures. however, they don’t melt as evenly as the normal sized ones!
First Up… The Toasted Coconut and Dark Chocolate S’more!
OMG… guys. 5 stars. Would
marry this S’more eat this s’more every day of my life. And guess what?! I don’t even like coconut! Well, unless it’s in a Mounds Bar. And this just so happened to taste exactly like a Mounds bar! This definitely tastes more like a dessert, and not just a S’more! I’ve never felt classier around the fire 😉
That is, until you see… The Strawberry Hazelnut S’More!
I’m 98% certain this one was made specifically for my Nutella lovin’ heart. I mean, just look at all that gooey goodness! Have you ever seen anything more beautiful?!
This next one was voted the favorite by most of the guys around the fire. So ladies… if you’re lookin’ to impress a special someone, maybe try to woo them with these Cereal Milk Explosion S’Mores! (Or, ya know, #TreatYoSelf.)
Every wanted to know what perfection looked like? See above. This S’More is SO GOOD that I ate two of them. (So long, bikini body. This S’more is worth it.) This one was Trev’s favorite, and he’s declared that every campfire from now on must have these!
This next treat was my choice S’more of the night! Why? Because it pairs PERFECTLY with Short’s PBJ Ale! Meet The Elvis Fluffernutter S’More!
Did you know that Elvis was famous for his Peanut Butter and Banana sandwiches?! So famous that in restaurants all over the country you’ll find some sort of peanut butter and banana concoction dedicated to the Music Legend. So, why not add a little Americana to your fire?!
And finally, my Grandpa’s favorite… The Peaches N Cream!
Imma be totally honest with you. I really wasn’t too sure about this one. Peaches and Molasses Cookies just seemed like the strangest combo to me! But guys… this little baby proved.me.wrong.
So my friends, how many of you are going to be volunteering to bring dessert to your MDW BBQs this weekend?! Not only are these so dang easy, but you can make them with under four ingredients. Talk about minimum effort… maximum impact.
Don’t have a fire pit at your house?! Don’t worry. Wayfair has hundreds of gorgeous options ON SALE right now! Click here for the original post… and lot’s of pretty fire pits!
Alright my loves. I’m heading North for what is sure to be a beautiful weekend! Have a happy, safe and fun MDW everyone! I’ll be back on Tuesday! If you need me before then, you can find me here…
