One of My favorite Summer Cook out desserts is S’mores. When we think of S’mores we generally think Graham crackers, toasted marshmallows and a piece of a chocolate candy bar. Today I have some simple and creative ideas for you to try during your summer cookouts.
Graham cracker alternatives:
Chocolate chip cookies ( pre-make fresh ones with Nestle cookie dough)
Chocolate flavored wafer cookies
Sliced apples ( see recipe here)
Fudge stripped cookies
Chocolate bar alternatives:
Nestle Crunch bar
Wonka chocolate bars
Carmel filled chocolate bar
4 FUN Recipes
- 1-Package of flour tortillas
- 1-Jar of Peanut-Butter smooth or crunchy
- 1-Bag of Semisweet Nestle Chocolate Chips
- 1- Bag of Mini Marshmallows
Spread peanut butter on to the flour tortilla, spread a handful on chocolate chips and marshmallows. Fold in 1/2 then wrap in foil. Place on the grill for just a few minutes until melted and hot.
