S’mores Cookie Bar Bites

It’s officially summer, which means barbecues, festivals and camping — whatever the weather!

For Americans, that means s’mores. These little pieces of magic combine three simple ingredients — biscuit, marshmallow and chocolate — and turn them into gooey, sticky, delectable treats that’ll have you coming back time and again for “some more” — hence the name!

These cookie bar bites are like an extra-gooey blondie and are adapted from a recipe on Sally’s Baking Addiction, one of my absolute favourite baking sites. They’re simple to make and guaranteed to get a reaction — take them to the next outdoor event you go to and see your friends’ faces light up as they discover the joy of s’mores!

Slow-Cooked Balsamic Honey Chicken & Vegetables

Yeah, I know, this one’s a bit different. It was just so good I had to share it. Don’t judge me.

I love my slow cooker. It’s like a witches’ cauldron that takes simple ingredients and turns them into dishes that are far more than the sum of their parts.

This recipe is a great example of the slow cooker’s magical powers. During the cooking process the vinegar mellows in flavour and mingles with the juices from the meat and veggies to create a mildly sweet sauce.

You could also modify this recipe to leave out the meat if you just want the veggies to pair with something else.
