Matchbox Kitchen S’mores

I am so excited I don’t even know how to start this post! How about with a picture!?

Yes. Those are s’mores. With homemade graham crackers and homemade vanilla marshmallows from my friend Sara at Matchbox Kitchen!

I have followed Sara’s lovely blog for a long time–way before I started my own–so I was pretty thrilled when she commented on one of my posts back when I was just beginning to blog. And even more excited when she recently suggested we do a treat swap after my baking blogger’s lament.

Since I haven’t had much time or energy to bake lately, it was a bit of a godsend for my stressed-out sweet tooth this week when I got Sara’s gorgeous little package.

Not only was it perfectly packed and adorable (complete with a pom-pom in my favorite shade of green), she included a note on one of her beautiful handmade cards.

(The cats were excited about this too. The packing fluff was a big hit and is now in a safe hiding place under the couch after a few hours of quality wrestle time.)

Sara runs an online shop and I would definitely recommend treating yourself to a s’mores kit if you ever need a gift or even a pick-me-up for yourself! They are so tasty and pretty and will put a smile on your face for sure. I was even inspired to make a little video…

Now… let me describe how delicious these guys are.

The marshmallows are fluffy and just a little bit sweet and get so wonderfully gooey when they melt. I find marshmallows hard to make, but I love them, so I’ve been savoring these all week long.

And the graham crackers! They are so thin and crispy with great flavor, and have this great sprinkle of cinnamon sugar on the top. Even though they’re delicate, they magically still hold up to the hot marshmallows. As you can see from the half-eaten evidence above. (It took all my willpower to pause and take that picture, by the way.)

Thank you SO much to Sara for the treat swap!! It’s definitely been a highlight of my month! And all of you should go check out Sara’s lovely blog for yourself–her photography is gorgeous, her food is super tasty and inspiring, and she’s a great writer to boot! And as for me… I’m off to have some more s’mores.

PS: Not only did I make a silly YouTube video, but I also made a silly animated GIF (I was being really techie today, apparently). Check it out here 🙂 (And let me know if you like it and think I should do more!)
