S'more Chocolate!

Last week was our Vacation Bible School -- four days of fun and kids!  Our Nursery and 2's and 3's class is only for the volunteer's kids as the regular classes start at age 4.  This means we have a limited number of the younger ages, but we still need volunteers to staff these areas and for the 2's and 3's, we do a Bible story, crafts and music just like the bigger kids.

For my volunteers in this area I decided to give them s'more kits on the last night as a "thank you" for serving.  We had over 175 volunteers in the entire program, but a limited number in my area, so this was feasible to do.

Pardon the bad color, these photos were taken at night with the overhead spots on.
Simple ingredients - graham squares, marshmallows, chocolate bar were placed in a cellophane bag and a thank you label attached.
Ready to go!
Of course I sampled. One marshmallow was plenty, but for presentation, two looked better.
Even though I'm chocolate sensitive, which means too much gives me a migraine, sometimes, a girl just needs chocolate!
In the summertime, nothing is better than a hot fudge Sundae and this is the fastest, easiest hot fudge recipe you will ever find.
Simple ingredients - cocoa, corn starch, sugar, water, vanilla and butter, plus a smidgen of salt.
Cook in the microwave, stirring every couple of minutes - watch carefully and make sure your container does not overflow.  Chocolate cooked onto the microwave surface is not a good thing!
Couldn't be simpler!  Click on the above photo to enlarge it to read the recipe.
Enjoy some chocolate goodness today!
