S’mores Whoopie Pies

This recipe I bring to you today is a knock off of the classic s’mores treats. It’s all American. Isn’t it? It almost seems like one of the quotas you should have to meet to be an American.

Here’s my non official list to be sure you’re an American:

1. You must try s’mores at least once in your life.

2. While I’m thinking about smores I think it should be mandatory to go camping at least once.

3. While I’m thinking of camping…You must take a road trip.

4. You must love french fries. Why? I don’t know. It just seems right.

5. You must own or have owned at least one pet. Don’t ask how many we have tried over the last 14 years.

OK. You want to know.

- A black lab/German shepherd. (kept for 6 months)

- Fish (had for about 9-12 months)

- A parakeet (about 9-12 months)

- A stray cat that we fed for a while (2 months)

- Chickens 3 + 3 ( 2 were roosters [had to go], 2 were eaten by hawks, 1 was butchered and 1 went back to the farm.

- A cockapoo (currently have) How long do you think we’ll last with her? ;)

Geez, we’ve tried a lot. I think I’m done trying to be an American. I’ll settle for whatever at this point.

Smores Whoopie Pies

So what do you think it takes to be an American? Just remember it must include eating s’mores or s’mores whoopie pies. ;)
