Sweet Potato S’mores*


I’m sure you have heard of a half truth. What about a half lie? Is that such a thing?

I bought 3 bags of halloween candy for strange neighborhood kids & I haven’t touched it once.

Guess that is a thing, because that my friends is a half lie. But seriously, what’s a girl to do when there are Cherry Tootsie Roll Pops, Hershey’s chocolate bars and Butterfingers looking at me from a bowl by front door (i.e. in view from my office!!)?

I took the bowl and I hid it in the back of a coat closet. Know what that does? It makes a normally sane person walk by the closet door 34234 chanting NO and pretending like Jillian Michaels is watching her. But no closet doors, mind games or wiring of my jaw could keep me away from that bowl full of sweet deliciousness.

And then as I was unwrapping my 2nd Tootsie Roll Pop, I had a horrible — awful — no good — terrible idea. Take those fun size Hershey’s Chocolate Bars and smash them in between two Alexia Sweet Potato Waffle Fries with a warm gooey marshmallow. You know I love all different kinds of s’mores — or even s’mores fudge — but you haven’t lived until you have had a Sweet Potato S’more.

These Sweet Potato S’mores are seriously too easy. If you happen to have a fire going and want to toast your marshmallow for reals, do it. But if you don’t like the way your hair smells after you have sat by a fire for hours stuffing your face with toasted marshmallows, then do it in the oven!

Halloween is 36 hours away. In 34 hours, you can find me in aisle 7 buying replacement candy. I will be wearing a disguise so the checkout guy doesn’t recognize me and crack a joke.

      You can find them in just about any grocery store in the frozen foods section.
