Ga Ga for Goo Goo

I’m excited to say that there is still the occasion to talk like a baby and not have everyone look at you funny. Or at least TOO funny. (I hope you all read the title aloud.)

This delicious retro treat came to us from my in-laws’ trip to Nashville. Milk chocolate, caramel, peanuts and marshmallow… can you go wrong?! They were so good, we have been tempted to take a road trip and get some more. Here’s to being a kid again!

Everyone say Goo Goo!

Everyone say Ga Ga! And mmmmmmm.........

Happy Easter, Peeps!

I know it’s a couple days early, but it seemed like a Good Friday to do a post. We just wanted to say Happy Easter to all our, um, peeps out there. We hope the Easter Bunny delivers some sugar-coated marshmallow bliss. Enjoy the time with your family!

Happy Easter, peeps.

Campfires and the double marshmallow, Special Dark chocolate s’more!

The campfire. A summertime ritual that must include the s’more! Really, what is the purpose of going to the trouble of making the fire, if you’re not going to toast a marshmallow (or two), and eat it between layers of graham craker and gooey chocolate!? I’ve found my s’more happy place using the Hershey’s Special Dark bar. And, since s’mores are not just for kids, bring along a bottle of Trader Vic’s Macadamia nut liqueur. The warm, nutty, smokey  flavors pair up perfectly!

Some of you are probably wondering why Cha! Cha! the Rainforest Cafe frog is in the picture with our boys. They had discovered a photo contest with a grand prize trip to Disney World! And given my last post and our love of all things Disney, they asked if we could enter. I obliged and thought I’d ask a favor…please vote for our entry here:

EDIT: Since the contest is over I removed the link, but thanks for voting!

All jokes aside….I think I need to go make some…more….s’mores.

The double marshmallow, dark chocolate s'more.

Cha Cha joined us for the campfire.

Once the boys each had a s'more, Heather and I got our turn.

I'm a believer in the nicely toasted, not burned, marshmallow.

Trader Vic's macadamia nut liqueur, an awesome pairing for s'mores!
