How beautiful are these Skinny Cookie Butter S’more Sandwiches? I came up with the idea after a trip to Trader Joe’s. Recently, my husband has gotten in the habit of making microwaved s’mores by melting chocolate on graham crackers and then, get this, dunking those graham crackers into a tub of marshmallow fluff. I know. So healthy. But I’ve avoided following his lead. Honest? Watching him gives me a stomach ache. Yet, my mouth is totally watering and I have to leave the room to avoid slipping up. My body sends me such conflicting messages sometime. So I decided to do something about it. Check this out. These cookie butter sandwiches, which could easily be swapped for peanut butter sandwiches, are about to meet their fairy godmother and turn into a beautiful, cookie butter sandwich!First, I dipped them in chocolate. It got super messy as you can see. Then, I stuffed them with marshmallow fluff. And then, wahhhlahh!In case you were wanting to invite a couple girlfriends over for a Game of Thrones and Skinny Cookie Butter S’more Sandwiches party, here’s what you’ll need:
Favorites? Thanks for asking. I am in love with stand-alone grills, and I think making s’mores on this gadget would be a real treat. Also, count me in for a copper fondue set. Beauty and efficiency included. Finally, are you kidding me with that microwave s’more maker? That. is. perfection.
