Lamby and S'more Puffs

Today I have my little one home sick. Such a pitiful sight to see your child sick..especially when she's in her fuzzy pink robe and tie die fuzzy slippers with flushed, freckled cheeks. So while I should be playing catch up on blogging and creating and housework, I've spent a good part of the day just watching tv and hanging out with Jordy.


I did have to do a little work to finish out the month so I tried to include Jordan when I could. I told her to set up her tea party stuff she had out and that I would make a surprise for her little friends. Meet Lamby (she's on the right) and her little friend. Lamby was given to Jordy by my husband (I picked her out but dear ol' Dad gets all the credit for giving Lamby to Jordan) and she's been Jordan's favorite little friend ever since. She is worn, well loved and dirty but that's the way she'll stay so that she doesn't fall apart. That little bell that Lamby is wearing was in Lamby's stocking from Santa last year. Well, here's Lamby and her little friend all ready for a tea party. I made some special desserts for Jordan and her little critters.

The lambs get to have a Hershey's Kiss, complete with little scalloped place mats that I made. Just the perfect little size for their adorable table setting that Jordy set up.
And we got to have a fun treat called S'more Puffs. My mom gave me the recipe that she got out of a magazine. Now we're able to have S'mores anytime we want...made right out of our own oven. They are heavenly little morslets, let me tell you! Top a Ritz cracker with a Hershey Kiss and 1/2 a giant marshmallow. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Droooooooooool!
I thought these would make cute little snacks for the next time the girls had friends over. They take no time at all to assemble and bake, the perfect snack! The little kiss accents were easy to make too. I simply stamped a brand new recipe sentiment from Just Rite's Recipes Borders and Centers set onto white cardstock with brown ink. (Please note that you'll need the new wooden circle stamper to use this new set ). I cut the circles out using Spellbinder's Circles and Scalloped Circles Nestabilities Die Templates. If you wanted, you could adhere the kisses onto the little embellishments but I thought it would be fun to keep refilling the little plate. I can't wait to use these stamps more, I've got to get busy on more recipes!
And of course I had to make a recipe card for my files. I used one of the little circle embellishments and just added a Papertrey heart from Heart Prints in the middle. I adhered that onto some October Afternoon patterned paper to finish off my 4 x 6 recipe card.
I also added a little stitching around the recipe card to add a home made touch. I didn't want the bulk from the actual thread, so I just stitched around the card without the machine being threaded.......awww, who am I kidding......I ran out of thread and didn't feel like winding a new bobbin so there you have it! LOL!! It still looks cool though.
Oh, and back to those S'more Puffs.....here's a close up shot of the ooooey.....gooeyyyyyy marshmallows.
And just in case you're wondering......yyyyyyes, the Hershey's Kiss actually melts in your mouth. The buttery, salty Ritz cracker is so perfect for these too. It kind of tastes like a pretzel with that saltiness......but then the melted chocolate and puffy marshmallow hits your tongue. Heaven, I tell. Make some. You'll be glad you did.
Also, be sure to check out Just Rite Stamper's BLOG. Lots of new samples and a previews by Dream Team Stampers.

Love all your neat ideas! We'll have to try out that recipe soon! And such a cute tea party. My girls have always loved having tea parties, too. My youngest even makes me light a candle every time we have a "hot cocoa party". Hope your daughter's feeling better. Thanks for always sharing such great things with us!

Hi, I am looking into getting myself some justrite stamps but dont have much of a clue. I think I want the wood mount so I can use my ink pads. But I see they have many sizes. Is there a size you suggest to get started with. I own an online and brick and mortar store but have not ever used these stamps. I do have ONE self inking on in stock but myself have not used it. So any info you can give me would be great. Can you please email me at allmomentsremembered@gmail.com
Thanks for any info,
Stacey

Mish! You have officially RUINED my morning! How am I supposed to concentrate on my work when all I can think about are gooey, melty, chocolatey s'mores bites... *drool* Oh my word!

You're such a great Mom! Thanks for sharing! It made me smile!

What a fun treat - I'm sending it to my s'more loving sister right away- how dangerous - you don't have to wait until you are camping with the campfire to make these gooey treats!!!

Love Jordy's sweet little tea party table! hope she's feeling better - how nice to have you mum hang out with you when you're under the weather.

Love your recipe card - and the 'faux' stitching!!

Cindy H. said...

What a lovely mom you are! Whenever a child is sick, and no matter how old, there's *no one* like your mother to comfort you!!! I love your little Kisses placemats and the beautiful recipe card. I'm also a fan of s'mores but have always made them with graham crackers. Maybe I'll have to try your version, too:)

resmith said...

Very cute Mish!! My children and I tried your recipe today - yummy!! We didn't have big marshmallows so we used silicone cupcake "papers" to hold mini marshmallows on instead - worked great!! Thanks for the treat! :)

Michelle,
Made these puffs last night for our daughter's birthday. They were great. Everyone thought I was crazy not using graham cracers, but these were so good and so addicting. Crazy like a fox! Thanks for the recipe and for your wonderful blog; I check in every day!

Mish, you are creating memories your kids will never forget. I used to do them (not so fancy, for sure) with my kids and they still remember them. I forgot many of them, but they haven't.
