So! I thought... heck! I'll just make my own marshmallow cookie thingys!
Well, I don't know if I saved any money, but these sure are delicious!
Here's my ingredients:
I suppose you could buy just a vanilla cookie, but I wanted the richness of the shortbreads and...
They were on sale: Two boxes for $4.00.
I wanted real Kraft marshmallows, but they only had these no name ones.
The chocolate on the other hand was a really good quality and these packages were about $4.00 each! Yikes!
I broke up the chocolate in a pyrex bowl and perched it over water in a saucepan on ultra low heat. Covered it and got all my other stuff ready.
I laid all the cookies out onto a tray covered with waxed paper first.
Put a drizzle of caramel on each cookie and put the tray in the frig so it would harden a bit.
Cut each marshmallow in half lengthwise.
Laid a marshmallow out on top.
Dunked half in chocolate. Back in the frig.
(That's so you don't get quite as much on your fingers!)
Did the other half and num, num!
Got out my sprinkles and decorated.
Wrapped each one and bagged it.
It just proves once again that anything dipped in chocolate is scrumptious!
