thirsty thursday - s'mores two ways

S'mores are one of those treats that instantly bring you back to your childhood. It doesn't get much better then sitting around a fire on a summers evening roasting marshmallows with friends. The simple joy of getting your marshmallow perfectly crisp without falling into the fire and creating the perfect bite as you sandwhich the melty goodness between two graham crackers {with lots of chocolate of course}. Since we dont have a fire pit out on Shelter Island I decided to make a much neater version of this famous dessert for my nieces while they watched a movie. It was the perfect blend of all the classic s'mores flavors with less of a mess. Since it was a hit  I decided to share that recipe along with a cocktail version {obviously}. Hope you enjoy!
