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!

Thank you, Judith. They were fun to make and give. The hot fudge recipe is one I've had for so long I don't even remember where it came from, but we love it!

Love the s'more idea for a simple thank-you. Whenever we camp we plan at least one carbless meal so we can have s'mores for dessert. Seems to me that's how our original microwave (the one I bought from you) finally bit the dust -- and really made a marshmallow mess!
