Black Forest S’mores

So, I’ve mentioned it what? 5 times already?

I just wrote a S’mores Cookbook.


As in – JUST – wrote a S’mores Cookbook.  I turned everything in to the publisher a couple of weeks ago.  I’m excited about this one in a much difference way than I was with my first published book, as this one is fully photographed, meaning, it’s going to not only be chock full of sweet recipes, it will have a stunning photo (thanks to Bree!) to accompany each and every one.

Like – THAT kind of cookbook.

And in case you aren’t following along with me on Facebook, you don’t know one of the other special details…DuffandSusan-008

Duff Goldman, Ace of Cakes himself, offered to write the Foreword to this book.


I don’t even know what to think about that, other than wow – I am one lucky gal.  In 2008, when I started this little blog, I didn’t know the first thing about cooking, baking, or anything food related, other than I knew I liked to eat.  And now, I get paid to blog, I’m publishing my third cookbook, and someone famous offered to write the foreword.

There are no words.

But…it’s going to be a few months before this new book hits the presses, so I thought I’d offer you another little tidbit to tide you over.

Black Forest S’mores.

Chocolate Graham Crackers form the base, then a layer of toasted marshmallow, some dark chocolate squares, and then get this – cherry pie filling.

Crazy, right?  But it works.  It really, really works.

And it’s easy.

You should try it.  I’m going to add a recipe for you to follow, though I imagine if you were able to navigate yourself over here to my page all by yourself, you can handle making this S’more based on what I just wrote.  Heck, you could make it based on the photos.

You’re a smart cookie.  I know this. But I’m posting the recipe anyway.

We all have those days, and I’m not taking any chances.
