S’mores and candy…eye candy that is

Happy Halloween everybody!  I made these for a lil pumpkin carving party at my sister’s house and they were an absolute hit, if I do say so myself.   So much so that I have decided to make them in a miniature size for my boys preschool parties.  I thought I would share because they are not necessarily a “Halloween” treat and can be made any time of year.  I stuck these on skewers and stuck them in an heirloom pumpkin.  Very fallish, aye?

Apparently, Sam’s big ole muscles pushed the skewers in too far and no one could muster up enough strength to pull the suckers out…so they just popped them off…hence all the headless skewers.

Obviously, these were like the easiest things in the world to make.  Melt some chocolate, crush some graham crackers, dip your marshmallow in both and you can call it a day.   Did I just hit the easy button or what?  And just think about the spin you could put on these.  Easy peasy, my friends.  I thought the kids would love them, but it was actually the adults who got down on these bad boys!

The party was so much fun.  The boys had a blast which therefore equals two happy parents.  Great food, great people…Sarah & David, you know how to throw a great get together!  Thank you!!!  And now for all that eye candy I promised you
