Crockpot Wednesday:Smores

We have been eating alot of smores around here! I love them, Mister loves them and Hubcap loves them! I love hanging out on the back porch, roasting marshmallows and watching Mister play. But sometimes it is a pain to have to go light the charcoal. And sometimes it is a pain when there are flies.And mosquitos. So sometimes we move the party inside and have s'more fondue. Yummy!
Here's what you need!

15 oz milk chocolate bar, 1 package of large marshmallows, 1/2 cup of half and half or heavy cream

In a small slow cooker,stir together your chocolate, marshmallows and half and half. Cover and cook on Low for 1 1/2 -2 hrs, stirring once during cooking. Whisk until the mixture is smooth.

Serve immediately or keep warm. If you keep it warm, make sure you stir it occasionally. And make sure you have alot of fun dippers on hand to serve it with. You can use fruit, more marshmallows, graham crackers! Yum! (It's also really good if right before serving, your stir in a half cup of creamy peanut butter) :)

I am slowly teaching Mister the letters of the alphabet. He shows alot of interest in the letters and actually learned some on his own, (ok Sesame Street did all the work for me). So now I'm taking a letter a week, and were going over it every day during snack. So for our snacks were eating foods that start with the letter we are learning! This week the letter is P.

popcorn, pears, pickles, pineapple

We practice coloring it in with paint, chalk, crayons and then I made a flash card of it as well. He likes learning it because its a game, and its really no work on my part! Heres to the letter P!!
