Hi, Becky here from Bite of Delight!  Today I have a scrumptious twist on not one, but two old favorites.  If you love Thin Mints AND s'mores, you won't want to miss this perfect combination of chocolatey, gooey, crunchy goodness!  It tastes just like a Thin Mint girl scout cookie, only it's stuffed with a golden, toasty marshmallow.  Does it get any better?  I think not.  And if this isn't enough to make your life a little better today, you can have a whole batch ready to go in about 20 minutes … [Read more...]
