It's my 100th blog post! Sarah Cooks the Books hit the 1-year mark back in September, but this is the official 100th post I've made. (I can't say it's the 100th recipe, because I've had a lot of "Sorry I've been gone, guys!" and "Look what I ate in California!" posts, so maybe I should go and count how many actual recipes I've posted. Or maybe I don't want to know.
To celebrate, I've got a dessert recipe for you! I don't do desserts too often, for no real reason other than I just don't, but in this case, I thought it was time for some sweets.
It's also time for a cat in a sombrero.
(She likes me. I swear she likes me.)
I did that thing I do where I take a recipe, decide I could do it better, and make it into something awesome. In this case, these:
The original recipe in the book was for "Gimme Gimme S'mores Sandwiches," but I had strawberries in the fridge, and thought, what better to add to chocolate than strawberries?
It was one of the best decisions I've ever made.
I also bumped up the ingredient amounts, because the recipe was for one serving. What the what? I don't even understand why you'd only want one serving of this.
I want to thank everyone who reads, who stops by, who comments. . .I appreciate everyone who is a part of my cookbook project here. Here's to 100 more!
Strawberry S'mores Bars
7 sheets of graham crackers (Yes, I know there are only 4 in the picture.)
1 cup Cool Whip, thawed
2 large strawberries, chopped
1/4 cup miniature marshmallows
2 Tbsp. chocolate chips
Stir together Cool Whip, marshmallows, chocolate chips, and strawberries.
Break your graham cracker sheets in half and set 7 of the pieces on a plate. Top with the Cool Whip mixture.
Top with the other 7 pieces of graham cracker. Push them down enough to stick, but don't smoosh out all your filling.
Freeze until solid, an hour and a half or so. Save any leftovers in a sealed container.
