Tropical S’mores

Tropical S’mores

I have so many awesome recipes to share with you that it’s a weekly struggle trying to decide which one to post first. #FoodBloggerProblems I know, I know.

It’s 100 degrees here and summer food is happening now, whether everyone else is still suffering from cold temperatures or not! I have far too many popsicle creations that need to be set free.

Today was actually going to be a salad for you all. But then these s’mores happened and all bets were off, sorry. (Not sorry.) 

Tropical S’mores

You don’t need to go camping to enjoy these. You don’t even need an outdoor grill – just use an indoor grill pan and toast the marshmallows with your stovetop burners.

They’re pretty big, but still…good luck only eating one!

Tropical S’mores
Serves 4
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes

Ingredients
• 10 fresh grapes
• 1 (1/2-inch thick) slice of fresh pineapple
• 4 large marshmallows
• 2 tablespoons flaked coconut
• 1 package (7 ounce) Pepperidge Farm White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies (Tahoe)

Directions
Preheat an outdoor grill to medium. Oil the grates well.

Thread grapes on skewers. Grill grapes and pineapple for about 3 minutes, turning occasionally, until nicely charred. Remove from heat; cut grapes in half and pineapple into small pieces.

Toast marshmallows until golden or charred, depending on your preference. Place on 4 cookies and top with equal amounts of the grilled fruit and flaked coconut. Place remaining cookies on top; press gently. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes: (1) this can easily be done on an indoor grill, as well. (2) fresh cherries are a great substitute for the grapes. (3) because of the chocolate already incorporated into the cookies, I didn’t feel the need to add more, but if you want that extra pow factor, add a square of white chocolate per serving.

These are incredible!! No doubt, I’d go back for seconds… And maybe even thirds. Heck, I’d just skip dinner and eat the whole lot! ;) And oh my goodness, will it ever cool off? I’m used to this heat in July and August, but June just started and I’m desperately trying to avoid baking anything! Boo…

After living in MN for so many winters, I swore I would never complain about the heat ever again. But… ugh. It’s HOT. And it’s too early. 105 in June just ain’t right :/
