Wednesday Wonders

For today's Wednesday Wonders,  I am combining two things that I really can't live without: S'mores & Flare Jeans.  I think both are as delicious, as they are visually appealing.  I mean melted chocolate and a gooey marshmallow...Perfect flared jeans that make legs look a mile long...YUM (on both counts).

Let's talk about Smore's for a minute.  I would love to meet a person that doesn't love a good S'more. Do you people exist? How about trying this S'more delight, to switch it up for the normal campfire fare (you don't even need a campfire to make these)!  I can't wait to make these today (my husband {and kids} are going to be very happy).

S'mores Cookies Recipe Via

Ingredients


1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)
1 cup whole-wheat flour (spooned and leveled)
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup light-brown sugar
1 large egg
8 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, cut into 30 squares
15 large marshmallows, halved horizontally

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor, pulse oats until finely ground. Add flours, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt; pulse to combine. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, scraping down side of bowl. With mixer on low, beat in flour mixture just until combined.

Drop dough by tablespoons, 1 inch apart, onto two baking sheets. Top each with a chocolate square. Bake just until lightly golden, 11 to 13 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Remove sheets from oven; heat broiler. Top each cookie with a marshmallow. One sheet at a time, broil until marshmallows are lightly browned, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool.




NOW on to denim!  Move over skinnies...Flare is back, with a vengeance.  Boo-ya.  I am already counting down till I can wear Fare Jeans with platfrom booties and slouchy sweaters...oh Fall, I can't wait for you.

Have a happy Wenesday everyone! XoX
