happy chocolaty new year
Hershey's Special Dark makes a superior s'more. The new fire pit works great. We spent hours last night talking, imbibing and making s'mores with our neighbors, Rick & Melinda. In case you've never made s'mores, roast a couple of marshmallows to your preferred level of doneness. We used some bamboo sticks cut to a point and soaked in water so they wouldn't catch on fire easily. Take two halves of graham crackers and place a generous piece of dark chocolate on one. For a special treat, use peanut butter to glue the chocolate onto the graham. Smash the roasted marshmallow on top with the other graham cracker. Enjoy.
We're going to do it all over again tonight. The weather is calm and warm. Happy New Year to you and yours.
