S’mores Frenzy Sweet Round-Up
To celebrate National S’mores Day (yesterday) I thought it would be fun to do a round up of some of my favorite S’mores recipes on Picky Palate.
I am still recovering from a fun sweet tour with Amanda and watching my cookbook photo shoot this week with Matt Armendariz‘s amazing team in Long Beach. I can’t even begin to tell you what it’s like watching professionals style and photograph your recipes. It felt a bit like a dream. More to come on the shoot Monday
For now, enjoy some mouthwatering S’mores treats! xoxo

**Note, this recipe may also be done without the muffin top pan. Just flatten out your cookie dough slightly onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet and press your s’mores toppings over the dough** You can purchase those fun muffin top pans at TJ Maxx Home Goods if you are lucky, Sur La Table, Bed Bath and Beyond and of course you can google it as well!!
