All the mouthwatering recipes in our series “The Main Ingredient” have one thing in common: They all contain cookies.
Sadly, all good things must come to an end. We here at Cheryl’s hope you had a blast trying out our many buttercream experiments over the past seven weeks, but now it’s time for the grand finale.
To wrap things up, we thought we’d put a new twist on an old campfire favorite: s’mores. But there’s no need to light up a bonfire for this delicious treat. All you need is a few graham crackers, a tub of Cheryl’s rich fudge buttercream icing (to replace the chocolate bar in the traditional S’mores recipe) and a jar of creamy peanut butter (to stand in for the marshmallows).
Break the graham crackers into small squares and separate them into three equal piles. Take one pile and spread a thick layer of Cheryl’s fudge buttercream frosting onto each graham cracker. For the second pile, spread a thick layer of peanut butter onto each square. Leave the remaining squares unfrosted.
Lay the buttercream-frosted crackers on a plate, frosted side up. Stack one plain cracker on top of each buttercream-frosted square, and then stack a peanut butter-covered cracker on top of the plain cracker to create a three-layer sandwich.
Cap off the sandwich with a topping of your choice, such as chocolate chips or strawberry slices.
Now, gather your friends ’round the table, pour yourselves a few mugs of piping hot chocolate, and take joy in a night of warm laughter and sweet comfort>
