National S’mores Day | S’mores Dip
I don’t know about you guys, but I think the combination of ingredients used to make s’mores is absolutely fantastic! However, I’m not a big fan of camping. I don’t want to sound snooty – no, no. But let me be truthful with you, okay? I hate to sweat – and I live in Florida so I can say with absolute conviction that this sentiment will never change – and I’m scared of bugs and I like even the most normal of “luxuries” like, you know, a hot shower and a place with no bears.
Although I know s’mores can be made over a fire pit in someone’s backyard, with mosquito-repellant candles and food simply brought outside from the house a couple of feet away, s’mores to me is still synonymous with camping. I suppose one day I should give it the ol’ college try.
Anyway, I am neither camping (not yet), nor building a fire pit with someone anytime soon, but when National S’mores Day was creeping upon me, I needed to do something. True, this isn’t a traditional s’mores recipe, but most people know how to make that already. Not that this recipe is terribly difficult, but it’s something slightly different, and certainly easier and quicker to make in an everyday situation. I mean, in just a matter of minutes I can have this to nosh on for a dessert/snack.
