Dark chocolate, peanut butter, marshmallows … give me a glass of milk!
Sometimes the best creations come with a whole lot of heart and a bag of marshmallows, right? It’s no secret, typically I enter my kitchen with a mission in mind but am never quite sure what will come of it! Prime example, last week I thought heck, I’ve got raspberries and ginger, this has got to be a KILLER combo. Boy was I wrong. Needless to say you won’t be seeing that recipe anytime soon! #pinterestfail
Picking myself up off the floor, I took a second stab this week with these Hot Chocolate Cake Bars with Marshmallows. Phew, redemption achieved!
Gimme’ some SUGAR!!!
I whipped these babies up with so much love that I had no other choice but to share them with my lovely neighbors. These are the perfect holiday treats to dish up and serve with a few extra chocolates to spread that holiday cheer!
