My Grandma Sherman has been gone from our Earth for over 10 years now, but I see her, hear her, and feel her often.
When my Priscilla (who is named after her) joins me in the kitchen to bake chewy chocolate chip cookies using her recipe. And when I stop into my aunt’s restaurant to pick up a loaf of homemade English Muffin Bread – still made the same way Grandma used to make it. And when I watch my littles roast marshmallows over a crackling summer campfire.
My sweetest memories of my Grandma involve homemade love-filled food and camping. Just as there were always homemade baked goods in her kitchen, there were always delicious treats in her camper. No longer would we pull into Grandma and Grandpa’s campsite, and Grandma Sherman would come down those camper steps carrying a container of her newest snack mix recipe or still-chewy chocolate chip cookies. And Grandpa Sherman would gather the roasting sticks and marshmallows and chocolate for S’mores.
My Kids Make Sweet Memories with Their Grandparents Now…
There’s nothing like seeing my parents – my kids’ Grandpa (“Pop-Pop”) Sherman and Grandma (“Mi-Mi”) Sherman – gather the snacks and roasting sticks and marshmallows.
Things might be a bit busy these days to prep such extravagant homemade recipes as Grandma Sherman did. (However, my kids sure love seeing Mi-Mi’s homemade mac and cheese cooking in the crock pot in her camper!) But our quickly thrown together appetizer tray full of indulgent ingredients makes up for our lack of time in the kitchen.
It couldn’t be easier to put together – filling the sections with…
- Dare Breton® Grainsfirst Crackers – full of delicious whole grains & seeds
- Gallo Salame – cut in half and folded over all fancy
- And some small square slices of my kids’ favorite cheddar
The kids make tiny cracker sandwiches while Pop-Pop gathers the marshmallow roasting sticks. Not complicated, but deliciously extravagant at the same time.
And the S’Mores have gotten a bit more extravagant from what I remember as a kid, too. My mom comes down her camper steps carrying unusual candy bars and delicious cookies instead of plain old graham crackers.
Delicious Maple Crème Cookie S’Mores
So when I discovered Dare TM Maple Leaf Crème Cookies, I knew my maple-loving dad just had to sandwich one of his perfectly toasted marshmallows between a couple of these decadent maple flavored cookies.
He – and Miss Priscilla – were not disappointed!
The all natural yet decadent ingredients in the Maple Leaf Crème Cookies were the perfect pair for the familiar warmth and gooeyness of the toasted marshmallow.
I sure hope it makes for a sweet memory for her, too.
I found all of these delicious products at my local Walmart. For great entertaining solutions, look for Breton® Crackers and Cookies at your local Walmart, too. Make sure to use the Ibotta Offer to Buy 2 packages of crackers and save $1!
