I've spent the weekend indulging my roots.  No, I'm not talking about my Cajun culinary heritage.  I'm talking football.  This weekend brought both the Cotton Bowl (featuring my hometown team of LSU) and the New Orleans Saints in their playoff bid.  I forget sometimes how much I like football.

Although I resisted the nacho/chicken wing thing, I did whip up a sweet treat during half-time.  In the spirit of the Last Hurrah Bars, I poked around the kitchen and pulled together some leftover bits and pieces.  Here's what I found:

Hmm... looks like chocolate s'mores!  That poor little snowman won't know what hit him.

Step 1. Assemble

Step 2. Melt (Although the microwave does not yield toasty goodness, the puff factor is fun.)

Step 3. Smush.

Step 4. Revel in gooey goodness.

Gourmet?  Not so much.  Yummy?  You bet.  Of course, I've never met a melted marshmallow I didn't like.  Put together in thirty seconds, I didn't even miss the second half kick-off.  Does that make it a couch-gate party?  I'm not sure, but it certainly does...

Keep it sweet.

  1. Looks tres yummy! I've got some leftover chocolate-covered grahams from a gift box I got at Christmas, and I thought about putting them in the microwave with some marshmallows to make S'mores for my Super Bowl Party. On second thought, better put the 'mallows in the m'wave on wax paper, then transfer between 2 coc-covered grahams.
