Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Update: I’m bringing back this oldie but goodie to share S’More {haha..get it?} with you

Mmm…S’Mores! Who doesn’t love the ooey, gooey goodness of a S’More?

How about changing it up a bit? A special Shamrock S’more, just in time for your St. Patrick’s Day celebration!

S’Mores are a treat that our family enjoys all winter. It’s become tradition at Christmas, the boys buy me something for the kitchen. In the past years, I have received a Hot Cocoa machine, a Quesadilla maker and last year I got a Popcorn maker from my son’s girlfriend. Several years back, they got a S’More maker, complete with long forks, trays to hold the marshmallows and graham crackers and sterno, which of course, has been replaced lots and lots.

Last weekend while scouring over the cookbooks at our local library, I came across this wonderful little book S’Mores, Gourmet Treats for Every Occasion by Lisa Adams. Oh my, I could spend hours just looking through the pages.

In the holiday section, I came across my inspiration for these S’Mores. A Shamrock S’More made with a chocolate and mint cookie. So, I did a little search, switched around a recipe a bit, and came up with these to share with you…
