happy looooong weekend.....

burnt marshmallow s'mores
if labor day at your house means an end-of-summer barbecue, an afternoon spent sitting in lawn chairs under the waning yellow sun, a day of children and neighbors and the warmth of friends, then this recipe is for you. if, of course, you have no such plans but desire them with all your heart, this recipe is for you, too. lay out a spread of these snappy s'mores and you've got a party. better yet, you've accomplished dessert. you can cook the marshmallows over a fire pit or your grill or whatever open flame you desire or if you want you don't even need to cook the marshmallows. this recipe offers a fonduesque approach rather than a fire pit frenzy. needed ingredients are inexpensive and easy to come by, preparation is minimal, assembly easy enough for even the loopiest toddler, and clean-up is super sinchy because it entails simply licking fingers and brushing crumbs onto the floor for the picnic ants to carry away.
1 king-sized milk-chocolate hershey's bar
1 king-sized hershey's cookies & cream bar
1 bag large marshmallows
10-12 oreo cookies, chocolate cream centers, finely crushed
6 very thin wooden dowels cut into several 10 inch sticks
in two small, separate bowls, melt chocolate bars. dip one half of a marshmallow in the melted cookies and cream bowl. turn it upside down and spear it onto the tip of a dowel. dip the other half of the marshmallow into the bowl of melted milk chocolate, the press firmly into the oreo crumbs. eat immediately or allow chocolate to harden before serving.
