Light up the fire and say hello to Cookie S’mores where oatmeal chocolate chip cookies create the ultimate base for toasted marshmallows and milk chocolate in a campfire classic with a twist.
Consider today’s post Canyon Cookout 2.0.
Earlier in the week I posted about a much needed family getaway dinner featuring burgers, dogs and my Baked Potato Salad, loaded with sour cream, cheese and of course, BACON.
Even with the travel I’ve had of late, I’m still aware that the 4th of July is right around the corner.
An illustrious holiday where the goal is to chill with friends or family, get in touch with the great outdoors and somehow avoid putting an eye out with those fiery embered sparklers mama always warned us about.
Some will simply slip into their own backyard and fire up the grill to enjoy a little R&R. Others will be creating their great escape, be it ocean, desert or mountain.
I too will be heading out of town with my family, with coolers packed and Siri on speed dial en route to one of the most majestic National Parks in the land.
With my sister and bro-in-law and their girls flying in for a getaway to the wild, river floats and wildlife seeking will be tops on our to-do list along with a salutary shout out to Old Faithful.
Very red, white and blue wouldn’t you say?
You could also say Canyon Cookout 1.0 was a bit in preparation for this outdoor escape. A little reminder of what to remember before we hit the road and are apt to forget.
Things like handi wipes to take away the sticky leftover residue of a new favorite dessert treat.
While some of the clan that made our way to the first cookout preferred a traditional s’more, the rest of the crew went all in and heartily devoured this extra chocolat-ey Cookie S’more version.
Now if we’d only remembered the milk to dunk it into.
This just might be the ultimate outdoor adventure for your mouth, right at the tips of your fingers.
- 16 freshly baked chocolate chip cookies
- 16 large marshmallows
- 8 chocolate bars, broken into quarters
- Build a fire and let the coals begin to turn gray and ashy. Place a marshmallow on a stick and roast over the glowing embers, turning frequently. When golden, place a quarter of the chocolate bar on a cookie, top with the marshmallow and sandwich between another chocolate chip cookie and munch.
