I want s’mores!

As you may or may not know, today is National S’mores Day!  I know, there is now a day for any and all kinds of food, but who doesn’t love a s’more, especially in the summer time.  I have to admit that I like a s’more, but it is usually just one as I find them super sweet.  I guess that’s why children love them so much!  We do enjoy a traditional s’more, but have you ever tried using cookies that already have chocolate on them?  It is a game changer because you don’t need to fuss with breaking up the chocolate, but you do have to let go of the graham cracker in exchange for cookie.  This is the brand and cookie that we like to use.  After doing some research I have found a multitude of recipes that are s’more based, so even if you don’t have a campfire you can still enjoy this National Food Day!

Here’s to s’mores!

Brownies vs. Blondies

What is your go to dessert?  Is it cake, pie, cookies or maybe a tray of brownies?  I have been thinking about if I enjoy a brownie or a blondie better, and I think I like the versatility of the blondie.  It is easier to add something extra to the blondie to change the flavour like candy or spice.  I have found some of my favourite recipes to share with you, but please let me know which do you like better?

Brownie:
Crazy brownies from @pioneerwoman these are insanely delicious.  I have made them several times, but make sure you serve these with a big glass of milk!
Best cocoa brownies from @smittenkitchen I have never made a recipe from Deb that I did not like!
Secretly healthy zucchini brownies from @yammiesnoshery you will not believe the calorie count of these!
New and improved healthy brownies from @ambitiouskitchen you will need to check this recipe out to see how she makes these good for you brownies!  They are gluten and dairy free.

Blondies:
Cake batter blondies from @sallysbakeblog these would be a very fun addition to any birthday party.
Peanut butter cup blondies from @alidaskitchen who does not love peanut butter cups?  These look amazing.
Salted caramel blondies from @addapinch I am in love with everything salted caramel and I am sure that these would not disappoint.
Snickerdoodle blondie bars from @bakedbyrachel there is something so delicious about the mixture of sugar and cinnamon.

Happy baking,
Sara
